my girlfriends and I stayed here and we absolutely loved it. The staff was extremely friendly and there was a great beach bar located on the pool deck right next to the beach. The cocktails were one of the highlights of our stay there, aside from the beautiful weather!

The prices are too high. The mark up is not worth buying it then return for another open house to see the item you paid $25 on is now on sale for $7. Simply a rip off establishment.

I am a professional photographer and it is hard to find a store that sells pro camera and lighting equipment on the island. That said, Kaimuki Camera is still NOT the best place to go. I'm a long time customer here but will provide the public with an honest review. I find the owners (the only ones who work there) impatient and unwilling to assist their customers. (They will size you up when you walk in the door, trust me). On one occassion the owner bent over the counter and told me a secret--they "can't waste their time helping ameteurs and non-regulars" I was told. (How's that for customer service?). Also keep in mind that they only go out of their way to place orders on lens, bodies, etc for "only our regulars" they said. (but what is everyone else, chopped liver?). Try it--go in and ask for help, assistance or information about any of the products. Neil, the owner, in particular won't give you the time of day. His wife is kinder but both will give you very limited information on an item and very poor service. IF YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO THEM they will ignore you or at best not treat you with the same respect and equality they give to others. It's sad to say, but you may be better off ordering online. If you look at all the reviews on this site: half give one star, and half give five starts (mainly their friends and "regulars" (myself not included). Know who to believe. On the upside, their prices are similar to that of Amazon. They know this is their competition. (Kaimuki Camera also often closes the store without warning so do call before you go to make sure someone is there). If you need equipment right away you are limited to this, Lighthaus and Ritz Camea.

I have been doing business with Kaimuki Camera for as long as I can remember. I prefer to give my business to a local store. I used to work in a camera store when I was in high school. Kaimuki reminds me of that. They have great inventory, excellent product knowledge, they are friendly and are my friends. They tolerate tire kicking and are patient with newbies. Yes it is a family business, but there in lies the charm. If you are price shopping and comparing them with web, forget about it. If you want them to quote you over the phone, forget about it. They are old school. Don't believe the negative reviews, those people just want a deep cut discount and are not loyal customers. Put yourself in Kaimuki Camera owners shoes. If you want great service, real people instead of an anonymous web site the Kaimuki Camera is the place for you. It is a vanishing breed. Support these guys. They deserve it!

I had to put in my 2 cents worth about my experience working with Dave Miyamoto. I would consider myself an extremely detailed and picky person-Type A personality. Coming from California, and in the creative arts industry, I had huge expectations. I was humbled to work with Dave on my wedding day, and communicate with their company leading up to my day. They were totally honest, FAST with replies, FAST with turnaround time with my items, and extremely flexible. My wedding images itself take my breath away. MODERN. FRESH. FUN. And FULL of natural emotion. I wouldn't call myself a very photogenic person, but Dave sure brought out the best in me, my husband, and all of our guests, in all of the images. This is no easy task, as there were a lot of small children, and elders in our group. Clearly Dave Miyamoto knows what photography is all about, in all aspects of his game, and I could not be more proud to recommend him to to anyone looking for a well rounded professional, anywhere, world wide! What a breath of fresh air...!
