A Special Word From Tom

BCC009The Bergen County Camera Shop began in 1960. On 9/1/1980 it opened for the first time under the direction of Tom and Bob Gramegna thirty five years ago today as simply “Bergen County Camera”. We are overwhelmed by a sense of gratitude to all of those who have enriched our lives and helped us on our continued path to success that we endeavor to walk today and continue for long as “you” are walking at our side. There are no words to adequately communicate our thoughts. The brilliant words of the poet Emerson come closest to expressing our feelings about our 35 year relationship to our special family of clients, employees, artists and suppliers who have always been the backbone and the heart of Bergen County Camera and Gallery 270.
Thank You!


What is Success?

To laugh often and much;

To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;

To leave the world a bit better, whether by
a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed
easier because you have lived;

This is to have succeeded.
“Success” by Ralph Waldo Emerson

Paul Florio: Sunday in New York City – Opening Reception August 20

FlorioJoin us for the opening of Paul Florio’s “Sunday in New York City” on Thursday, August 20th from 7 PM until 9 PM at Bergen County Camera. Paul is a long time friend of Bergen County Camera and an outstanding Street Photographer.

Eventbrite - Paul Florio "Sunday in New York" Opening - Westwood
About Paul:

After winning a camera in the Kodak Pavilion at the 1964 NY Worlds Fair I became fascinated with photography. My dad was my main influenced. He was an architect by trade and worked in New York City. He often took me there and exposed  me to the many wonderful places that few 12 year old’s get to see. Although he was drawn to the “structure” of the city I was captured by it’s people. Since then I have always been interested in people and places and have always enjoyed the social atmosphere that so few people experience living 15 minutes from the greatest City in the world.

My work developed as I learned how to interact with people. I was a wedding photographer for a short time (thank God) ! I then did work for Diesel Fashion, the Apollo Theater Jazz Foundation as well as The Christopher Reeves Foundation and Epson. All of this brought me to where I am today.

I would be remiss if I did not mention my second greatest influence as a photojournalist. Without the time and help of Bob and Tom and many of the great staff at BCC over the past 25 years I would still be shooting that Kodak…and you know how hard it is to get bulbs for that!

Now In Stock: Fujinon XF90mmF2 R LM WR

Fuji90mmThe FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR is a fast-aperture prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 137mm* and a maximum aperture of F2.0, that delivers ultra-sharp images with rich bokeh even at the maximum aperture setting. The optical construction of 11 elements in 8 groups (including three ED glass elements) minimizes vignetting and creates beautiful bokeh thanks to the rounded diaphragm, which makes it perfect for portraiture as well as other applications.

Ultra-sharp images even at the maximum aperture

The optical construction comprises 11 elements in 8 groups, including three ED (extra low-dispersion) elements, which reduces chromatic aberrations to deliver sharp, rich images even at the widest aperture of F2.0.

Beautiful bokeh

The rounded aperture blades combined with an optical construction designed to minimize vignetting creates beautiful circular bokeh right to the edge of the image. In addition, stunning depth is possible in images thanks to the differentiation between the razor-sharp subject and the bokeh in front and behind it.

High-speed autofocus as fast as 0.14sec* thanks to a newly-developed Quad Linear Motor

A linear motor is fast, quiet and accurate, but here four magnets are used for higher torque. The high-speed autofocus provides a more versatile shooting experience, allowing users to quickly react to subtle changes in a subject’s facial expression.

Close focusing to 60cm and 0.3x magnification (35mm format equivalent)

The close focusing capabilities of the FUJINON XF90mmF2 R LM WR allow you to isolate key parts of a subject so you can shoot dramatic portraits or close-ups of flowers and insects.

Weather, Dust, and Freeze Resistance

The lens features a weather- and dust-resistant structure with seven seals on the lens barrel. It can also work in temperatures as low as -10°C. This keeps the lens protected from rain, dust and splashes of water when shooting outdoors.

Lightweight and compact

The lens weighs approx 540g, and is compact too, with a filter thread measuring just 62mm. The combined weight with the XF56mmF1.2 R is less than 1kg – great news for portrait photographers who want to travel light and still shoot with prime lenses for sharp images and strong bokeh.
