Purchasing a digital camera at 42nd Street Photo

on May 13 I purchased a digital SLR camera on the Internet from the people at 42nd street photo. The order went without a hitch and the ordered item arrived by UPS in perfect condition within 7 days. The salesman with whom I exchanged e-mail was courteous and most helpful in answering my questions. I highly recommend the place if you want to purchase a digital camera over the Internet.

Great products, prices and delivery.

As the title says, the products, prices and delivery were excellent. However, the phone call after ordering online and the attempt to sell unneeded accessories was not necessary.

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 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 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 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.

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 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.

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!

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.
