A year-end note from Mike, co-owner of Dan's Camera City

The holidays are in full swing, the end of 2013 is rapidly approaching, and all of us at Dan's would like to take a moment to express our appreciation for your continued support. This past year we were fortunate to see several areas growing beyond our expectations. Some were things we've done for years, like custom framing, and some were our newer services like school photos and our portrait studio.

New Cameras for the Holidays

Necessity is truly the mother of invention. As camera phones have become increasing popular for casual snapshots, camera manufacturers have had to significantly increase the appeal and diversity of their products. While the last several years have seen primarily minor upgrades in routine camera features, this year is quite the exception. Several companies have responded to the changes in consumer habits with some very outside-the-box options. Plus, on many of the traditional camera products prices have really decreased in order to make them more affordable (and appealing) to more people. All of this is great news for consumers, as now you can choose from completely new types of products or save money on existing items, all while capturing better images more easily than ever.

Safari Update & Compatibility Issue for Mac users

Update (11/19/13): the issue with Apple's Safari web browser on Mac OS X has been fixed! The new system includes a brand new HTML-based uploader for Safari 6.1 and 7.0 on all affected versions of Mac OS X. Google's Chrome web broswer still doesn't work for image uploading though. We recommend that Chrome users try Safari or Firefox for uploading images to print. Safari is included on your computer by default, so there's no extra download involved.
original article follows, but all issues have been addressed

A 10-year Anniversary

June 3rd, 2003 was the second most important date in Dan's history.
The most important date was August 7th, 1977. That was when Dan Poresky founded Dan's Camera City with the simple belief he could make photography easy and enjoyable for everyone. He coined the phrase For Better Memories for a business that's been supported by loyal customers from the Lehigh Valley and beyond ever since.
