Very courteous staff filled my order immediately over the phone. They assisted with my choice of lens and accessories, responding to what I actually needed, not what cost the most. The camera and lens are perfect for what I need. Would definitely return to them for any future photographic needs.

I purchased a medium-quality digital camera for my wife with 42d St. Photo on the phone. The person who took my call had very useful advice about choice of camera and appropriate accessories and quickly and expertly answered my questions about those choices and options. The camera and accessories I chose were shipped promptly.

I purchased a Canon Rebel T3i last year for my son's Christmas present. 42nd Street Photo had the best package price. So, when I wanted to upgrade to a Nikon 800E for myself, I went back to 42nd Street. I received a great price and great follow up on my purchase.

I ordered a Canon 55-250mm zoom lens and did not know I was purchasing the wrong model, they corrected they problem and gave me the black Friday price and numerous free extras as well. I would definitely buy from 42nd street photo again.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
