Recently I purchased the Canon Rebel T3i online at 42nd Street Photo. The experience could not have been better. I found the best price on their website. Shipping was free and I received the camera more quickly than predicted, and exactly as described. Their website is a breeze to use. I would be very happy to use 42nd Street Photo again when I need their services next.

Quick and Speedy Order and Delivery

I was searching the internet for the best price on the Sony Alpha NEX-F3. I found 42nd St Photo had the lowest price and looked like a company I could trust after reading the positive reviews. Ordering process was very easy and I even got a call after the order went through to check if I wanted "Signature Required" on my delivery. Most companies would not bother taking this step. Camera arrived promptly and could not be happier with my purchase. Would definitely purchase from this retailer in the future.

Best price & very fast turnaround

Searched for the Canon G15 and found 42nd Photo had the best prices and already had great reviews so I thought I'd try them instead of the usual companies I buy from. I was a little skeptical to begin with because I had never used them before but that was quickly put to rest once they called me to confirm the order. I was asked if I requested 2 day UPS shipping and I said it was because of my impending trip. I was told it would be sent out same day and I got it 2 days later. Great service!

I bought a Canon SX50 from them and it arrived in perfect condition (NEW) and was shipped very timely. They had the best price among the reliable (based on previous rating) online retailers and they delivered it. Didn't get any stupid calls for extra stuff etc. I would buy again and will definitely recommend it.

Panasonic DMC-FZ200

After a long wait and positive reviews from various photographic stores for (award winning) DMC-FZ200, I decided and purchased this camera way below the price advertised by other online stores. Received new camera from 42photo, meeting my expectation. Am very happy with my decision for the camera and my hassle free purchase from 42photo.

I found 42nd photo through a google search for the best price on a Sony NEX camera. Not only was it the best price, but a sales rep called me to let me know when my order shipped. It arrived promptly and came with a discount coupon for future purchases. Would definitely buy again.

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!!!

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!

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

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.
