News Release - Digital Camera Warehouse now recognised as Google Trusted Store

Sydney, Australia – 22 April 2015 - Digital Camera Warehouse, which offers a specialist photographic retail experience both online and at dedicated city locations, was recently selected to join the Google Trusted Stores program. To help shoppers identify online merchants that offer a great shopping experience, the Google Trusted Store badge is awarded to e-commerce sites that demonstrate a track record of on-time shipping and excellent customer service.

When visiting the Digital Camera Warehouse website, shoppers will see a Google Trusted Store badge and can click on it for more information.

Lucinda Dalton, Director of Digital Camera Warehouse commented, ‘We’re thrilled to be recognised as a Google Trusted Store. Not only because it highlights our exceptional team and processes, but also because it gives our customers the confidence to know that Google, sees Digital Camera Warehouse as a trusted site. We do what we say we do. And if we don’t, Google protection will kick in. It’s a win-win for our customers.’

As an added benefit, when a shopper makes a purchase at a Google Trusted Store, they have the option to select free purchase protection from Google. Then in the unlikely event of an issue with their purchase, they can request Google’s help, and Google will work with Digital Camera Warehouse and the customer to address the issue.

As part of this, Google offers up to $1,000 lifetime purchase protection for eligible purchases.
Google Trusted Stores is entirely free, both for shoppers and for online stores. The program helps online stores like Digital Camera Warehouse attract new customers, increase sales and differentiate themselves by showing off their excellent service via the badge on their websites.

Digital Camera Warehouse sells D-SLR cameras, CSC cameras, compact cameras, video cameras, lenses, memory cards, and a range of accessories to the full spectrum of photography enthusiasts.

TIPA Awards 2015 - TIPA Reveals Their Best Cameras and Imaging Products




The TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Awards for 2015 have just been announced, covering their selection of the best photographic and imaging products launched in the past 12 months.

A couple of our favourites made it through to the list which we’ve highlighted below.


Best Photo Printer: Epson SureColor P600 A3+ Inkjet Printer

There’s nothing quite like a finished print on gorgeous, tactile paper stock. Having recently acquired the Foto Riesel print lab, we’re certainly getting addicted to it. The Epson SureColor P600 outputs some stunning prints, up to A3 in size.

We love its desktop size (our office printer is somewhat less so at almost 2 metres in length!) and the new Epson SureColor inks with exquisite blacks. Long live print!

Pro-tip: try out Canson Infinity Baryta or Platine Fibre Rag paper. They’re something special.

Best Professional DSLR Lens: Canon EF 11-24 f/4L USM

Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM is a stunning performer that shoots wider than ever. We love the dramatic perspectives and sweeping photos that come with this impressive focal range, just make sure you’re wearing nice shoes – they may well be in frame!

Best Photo/Video Camera Professional: Sony a7s

The Sony A7s, otherwise known as, the little camera that could. Featuring one of the best low light full-frame sensors to date coupled with 4K video, a silent electronic shutter, and the ability to adapt almost any manual focus lens to it, this camera is certainly accolade worthy.

Sony’s A7s pairs perfectly with the CSC or mirrorless prime lens category winner, the Zeiss Loxia 50mm f2 and 35mm f2 lenses, which bring the fantastically designed Carl Zeiss Biogon and Planar formulas to the digital mirrorless age. (The Biogan and Planar lenses are special order lenses at DCW).

Best CSC Professional: Samsung NX1

Samsung is onto a good thing with the NX1 – It’s fast, well-built, and packs some serious punch. There’s a lot to like about this camera, but some standouts include 15fps high speed continuous shooting with autofocus, a snappy AF system with 205 Phase and 209 Contrast Detect points, and 4K video at a cinematic 24fps.

Reviews for this camera have been wildly positive, and we’re very interested to see where Samsung goes from here.

Best Superzoom Camera: Nikon COOLPIX P610

With 60x Optical Zoom that starts at a wide 24mm and reaches an impressive telephoto end of 1440mm (in equivalent 35mm focal lengths), the Coolpix P610 is an incredibly versatile camera. 

We’re a fan of the 5-stop advantage vibration reduction which is necessary for getting the most out of the huge superzoom range. GPS, Full HD video and a host of other features make it a perfect companion for travel!

The Canon SX60 HS ultrazoom is certainly no slouch either. While it didn’t walk away with a TIPA award, its 65x Optical Zoom starts at a super-wide 21mm equivalent, and extends to 1365mm.
