Everything we ship is a package.

The USPS also defines any container or envelope over 5 mm thick and or weighing 56 grams or more is a package, therefore package shipping rates apply.
Lastly, we are a commercial shipper.  The USPS picks up from us every day.  If we under weigh packages by error or otherwise, the USPS can cancel the postage. Then return the package(s) to us for accurate weight on a new shipping label. So we avoid all that and follow their guidelines.

About Gray

As a veteran attending National Camera's resident camera repair school in 1979, is where I found my true calling for the demanding yet extremely interesting field of photo equipment service and sales. For 25 years we grew every year. The staff and I serviced tens of thousands of film camera items, trained many technicians, met thousands of wonderful customers and truly had a fantastic time. Within 2 years of 2004, my service experience was devalued somewhat by the internet, film camera sales/service flatlined. Camera stores 50 times larger than mine were closing. I could see a new opportunity on the Internet. USCamera started as information site then became a family run internet business. Our mission remains the same, • Specialize in Vintage film equipment, mostly after 1958 • Knowledgeable • Provide quality products • Superior Service • Always available via phone - contact form – email All of us at USCamera look forward to serving you.
