Important news about Keeble & Shuchat

It is with great disappointment that I have to announce that Keeble and Shuchat Photography will be closing its doors in October.

It has been a great run for 51 years and I have had a great time doing it. I will miss coming to the store everyday. Ever since I was a little boy growing up in Palo Alto, it was my passion to own a camera store.

Thank you for your enthusiasm for photography, it is a bond we collectively share and it inspired me to have what I feel was the best camera store around.

I am truly blessed to have such success largely due to the loyalty of our customers and my faithful employees.

With much appreciation, humbleness and adoration I say thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was a dream come true.

The lens invites you to create beautiful portraits with minimal depth of field and its f/1.4 maximum aperture and nine-blade diaphragm produce a superior bokeh effect with large, smooth spheres with gradual alteration.

2-QualityThis lens is the culmination of Nikon’s expertise in lens design, optical excellence and industry leading innovation. Its new optical design creates ultra-high definition across the entire frame, especially when used with one of Nikon’s full-frame (FX) high-resolution DSLRs, and its fast aperture allows selective, artistic use of that resolution. The AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED can defocus backgrounds with painterly finesse and isolate subjects with three-dimensional fidelity. For those seeking the ultimate in image quality in photography or videography, there’s no close second.
