There is a new Love Story between TheCameraStoreTV and Olympus :)

Share

The popular Canadian CameraStore had only one big issue. They didn’t sell Olympus cameras…until now! To celebrate the coming back from Olympus they made this funny video. I hope we will never see any babies coming out of this new lovely partnership :)

P.S.: By the way, new E-M5 rebates should be coming soon in USA! Stay tuned. E-M5 price check at Amazon, Olympus US store, Adorama, B&H, eBay.

    This is great news. It means that I am now a Camerastore customer again, which is great because they usually have the best prices in Calgary.

    This is good news for people who shop using the Camera Store, and Olympus. And a cute video to boot.

    Now, onto the E-7 😀

  • Dave

    Freaking funny! (And I pray Olympus will not waste any more time or money on an E-7)

    • Anonymoose

      An E-7 could only bring them substantial profits, as well as prestige.

      • Camaman

        Only among the few remaining E series users.

          How many would you say is “few”? 25,000? 10,000? 50,000? And if they knew they had 25,000 committed 43rds users and made 25,000 which sold at a profit how would it be a bad thing?

          Truth is, another iteration of the pen series is more likely to lose them money as that market is currently saturated. While the captive 43rds users are in dire need of an upgrade, and have the money in hand :)

    hat is funny. but how big of a memory card did it take

    • The Real Stig

      It’s not the size of your card that matters; it’s how you use it.

        Funny video.
        There is a romance in cameras and this was well played. It is not the size but maybe the speed.

  • George H

    Hahaha. Nice!

  • Eliĉjo

    “…and SAMSUNG?!” that was the best part lol

    what was the reason they did not sell Olympus before?

  • Sören

    That is great.
    2 weeks ago, I wrote a nice email to their support and kindly
    asked for the reason of this bad TCS-Olympus relationship. I also
    said that this was no problem for their sales in former times, but now Olympus is
    Tier 1 in the growing mirrorless market and can’t be ignored by a shop.
    Maybe more users had the same idea and wrote TCS and changed their mind.

    I am so looking forward to their Videos with Olympus gear.

      Is it TCS that is having a problem with Olympus or is it Olympus that is having a problem with TCS? Also, what was the exact nature of the problem between them? I googled it and got nothing.

  • BLT

    This is great news – I think the camera store TV do the best video reviews on the net, by far!

    It is great to realise that they will likely be reviewing new Olympus gear in the future.

    For the original explanation of why they stopped selling Olympus: http://web.archive.org/web/20101125145219/http://www.thecamerastore.com/olympus

    Olympus marketing, epic failed as usual

    When will they just sack the whole department and start again?

    • Cheetos Ortiz

      Ah I see. I guess Olympus of Canada sees TCS as a little shop that voiced too big of opinion back in the days and didn’t appreciate being told how to run their business. Now that TCS is becoming really popular from its webepisodes, its voice can no longer be ignored as TCS is a viable mean to promoting Olympus products.

    funny stuff

    The story of my life…

  • Cardusan

    No, the best prices in calgary, and possibly in canada are in saneal camera. But, tcs has great appeal with their location and sales people who are awesome photographer. It just has that feel of mom and pop shop where you are welcome and you feel good. I purchase all my photo gear except camera/lenses (because of obvious reasons) in there. Stuff such as filters, bags and other things…
