About LEE'S Camera Center
Lee Lintner opened Lee’s Camera Center in downtown Ephrata, PA
in 1973. In a short 5 years he outgrew the Main Street shop and built
a 4-store complex further up Main Street where it is located today.
Over the years Lee and his dedicated staff have enjoyed learning and growing
with the ever-changing world of photography. Customers
appreciate the knowledgeable staff and “down home approach”.
If you haven't given LEE'S a try, Please do! You'll be pleasantly welcomed
and surprised! Drop us a line if you have any questions regarding
what Lee's offers and how best we might serve you with your photography
