Ken Petsch at Camera Exposure
2703 Adams Avenue, Normal Heights
At Ken Petsch's place you can rent super-ultra telephoto lenses or hot-shot cameras by the day. So you can try out a couple of models first. He rents Nikons and Canons and such for around $30 per day, including body and lens. Mostly though, Petsch reconditions and sells used cameras, from 35mm's to rail-type 8x10 giants, and used darkroom equipment. People also rent his darkroom. Plus, Ken teaches darkroom techniques at SDSU. So the comfort zone's high: This is no "I just work here" discount chain. Here, you know you're talking to the man.
