Merkle Camera and Video was established in 1984 to service the greater Toronto area Photo and Video professionals and enthusiasts. We are located near the 404/401 interchange in order to be accessible to as many communities as possible.
Our marketing strategy has always been to have what our customers want, when they want it; to know how the products we sell work, to solve any problem our customers have and to do all this for the same price or less than any of our competitors who don't.
We offer an internet shopping alternative so that customers anywhere in the world can take advantage of our excellent selection and competitive pricing. We have customers in Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and of course all over Canada and the U.S.A. We ship around the world as easily as we ship around the block.
As a member of Fotosource, Merkle Camera & Video is part of the largest photographic buying group in Canada. This means that we can offer the lowest possible prices and exclusive products while maintaining an extremely high level of personal and knowledgeable service.
Merkle Camera & Video has a beautiful 2000 square foot show room for a comfortable and pleasant shopping experience. We sincerely hope that you can visit us to fully appreciate what we are all about. If it is more convenient for you to shop via the internet and telephone, we encourage you to do so. We are already veterans, selling mail order since 1984 and on line since 1997.
Always Lead ... Never Follow
Foto source prides itself on being an industry leader. In early 1997, foto source became one of the early adopters of the Advanced Photo System Technology. As an alternative to 35mm film, this simplified film format became a key part of the photo industry’s transition from film to digital technology. Foto source became a destination for customers purchasing an APS Camera and for high quality photo developing and printing.
In the year 2000, foto source became one of the first Photo Specialty Dealers in Canada to install a Fuji Frontier Digital Photo Lab. This was an investment in the future of the photo industry. Once again, foto source became a destination for customers purchasing a digital camera and for high quality Digital printing.
In 2005, foto source launched the “Dakis Humanized Expert”. This unique tool is a self-serve purchasing assistant available on-line or in-store kiosk. Its function is to recommend the most appropriate product in relation to our customers’ needs, and to explain its recommendations. Customers will be able to use this powerful tool to compare products and to decipher technical specifications by way of comprehensive explanations and definitions.
