about campus camera and imaging

V. Demshar and Sons Inc. has been a family business since 1953. The Demshar family business started as a Television and Electronics store in Euclid, OH. Ralph took a corner of the store and started displaying and selling cameras. That “corner” soon ballooned into half of a store and, eventually, an entire business. He purchased the store we currently run in 1977 and moved his business here to Kent, OH. We are located less that a mile from Kent State University.

Daniel Demshar and Eric FisherToday, Ralph and his wife, Judy, still own the store. The day-to-day operations are run by Ralph’s sons, Daniel and Richard Demshar.   Combined the store sales staff has over 65 years of experience in the photography field. Their expertise and knowledge comes second-to-none in regards to camera and photo accessories.

Campus Camera & Imaging was one of the first 500 Canon dealers in the entire United States. We carried Nikon before Nikon USA was born!! We also jumped on the Sony bandwagon early as we were a major Minolta dealer before Sony bought them out. As a lens dealer, outside of the major manufacturers, we are Sigma and Tamron authorized dealers.
