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.

This camera store is the best that I have ever dealt with over the phone and internet. I recommend it without any reservation and always order from them.

The item I received did not work and I received a full refund - great customer service. They even sent a return label. I will order again from them.

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.

I was doing quite the amount of research looking for the best I coul on a sony nex-f3. Nut what I found was a better deal than I could imagine on the Nex5r. Not only was it hundreds dollars cheaper, placing the order was a piece of cake! And to top it off delivery was free! I received my camera in 3 days and am very happy with 42nd photo!

very satisfied

I have been looking around for a good DSLR camera for having somewhat high quality photos of everyday events, including those associated with trips abroad and of life events. My Canon Powershot is handy but not up to snuff when it comes to quality. I stumbled upon an excellent deal for a Nikon D3100 at 42nd street photo. I ordered on a whim - and am very satisfied with the professionalism and the sincerity of the organization. I highly recommend 42nd street photo! Surajit Sen/Buffalo/NY

I was shopping for a Canon G1X camera and chose to order it from 42nd Street Photo because of the great reviews I've seen for them online. I was not disappointed. Not only did they have the best price, but they shipped my item very quickly, and did not try to talk me into buying any extras. It was a total no-hassle experience, which is very rare among online camera stores. I will definitely come back to this store for my future purchases. Great job, 42nd Street Photo!!!

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.
