Prime Camera and MicroSearch History


Welcome friends to the new Prime Camera.  For over 30 years, Prime Camera, formerly MicroSearch, has been offering a wide-ranging product line with great prices and the highest level of customer service. In addition to sales, we offer design, integration, training and rentals in the Greater Houston area. Our product selection consists of top rated industry-leading imaging products that our clients request and use every day to support their passions, families and educate new young creative minds. The backbone of Prime Camera is our staff of friendly, knowledgeable professionals that are your very own personal consultants. With years of experience behind a camera, these men and women pride themselves on ensuring you make the best purchase decisions that fit your needs. Prime Camera’s focus is to remain your most trusted source for gear at an affordable price with incomparable service. Our spacious showroom features brands such as Canon, Sony, Ikan, DJI, Atomos, Photogenic, JVC, Panasonic, Manfrotto, Nikon, Zoom, FujiFilm, Pentax, Blackmagic Design, and many more. 

Visit our easily accessed 4,000 square foot showroom — in person or virtually — and consult with our seasoned industry professionals. Their knowledge and experience covers all types of digital content creation, and they can advise on purchases and rentals ranging from a single camera or light, to full studio and start-up media businesses at any budget level.


MicroSearch has been on the leading edge of digital media creation for Houston and the Texas Gulf Coast since 1983 and offers award-winning tools, equipment and knowhow that produce high-impact digital images whether your
medium is video, animation or photo. In addition to custom  designed computer, editing and content distribution systems, we now offer a full line-up of professional photo, video, lighting, audio and display equipment, expendables and other support needs.


Prime Camera likes to support the local community of filmmakers, photographers, videographers, schools, Houses Of Worship, and other members of the community looking to learn more about the products we sell. We offer free in-house workshops every Saturday on a wide variety of topics ranging from editing, basic filmmaking, photography, film production, lighting and more taught by our knowledgeable staff as well as special workshops taught by the talented folks that work in the field. We are also available to help you learn any of the products we sell by having one-on-one sessions to help answer any questions you have.
