6. C.R.I.S. Camera Services Thanks to gravity, loose gravel, and inevitable bad luck, you're likely to drop that point and shoot, brand new SLR camera or bag of lenses at least once. And when you do, you'll want to head to C.R.I.S.. The Chandler-based repair shops specializes in digital camera and lens repair on, Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Ricoh, Fuji, Sigma, Olympus, Sony, Kodak, Casio, Panasonic, and Samsung cameras, and while the rest of the country has to ship theirs into C.R.I.S., you just have to drive down the I-10.
