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 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.

Placed an order late Saturday, received a phone call regarding a payment issue Sunday afternoon. Was offered a small upgrade I wasn't aware of, didn't delay shipment, (in fact, the phone call helped secure the delivery time I needed - this was much appreciated as well). The representative I spoke with was extremely technologically efficient, able to email me links and new invoices and all in a very timely manner of a few minutes and call me back after I recieved them. The camera and case I actually bought arrived in perfect condition and have already served me superbly in my line of work.

I ordered a Canon Powershot SX260 HS 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera from 42nd Street Photo and I am very happy with it. I always order online and receive the products extremely quickly. We will continue to order from them.

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.

I recently purchased the Kodak EasyShare Z981 IS Digital Camera from this company and was very impressed with the camera, service and the all around transaction. Their staff are wonderful and always ready to help. The camera is top of the line and a great product. If you are looking for cameras or other tech items, you should definitely give this company a try!

I Hihgly Recommended 42 Street Photo!

I have been looking for an SLR camera for about a month but I wasn't sure which one was the right one for me. When I went to BestBuy I found out that no one really knew about cameras and they only tried to tell me that the the most expensive one was the best one. Well, unfortunately I don't have the money to get the most expensive one, so I started looking for second hand cameras. After a couple of disappointments my friend told me about 42 Street Photo. OMG! what a relief. I finally found someone that was knowledgeable and that didn't just want to get me out of the store broke. After talking with one of the guys and explaining the features I needed in my camera he pointed me to a Nikon D90. I am in love with my camera. It was exactly what I was looking for. THANK YOU!

Simply put: the best camera store in the USA. Educated personnel, a huge reliable stock, speedy service, and rock bottom prices. What more can you ask for in a camera store? My dad actually has been shopping here for years and I plan to continue on in his tradition.

I came into 42nd st Photo looking to get a digital SLR. The sales associate showed me a wide range of cameras and prices. I fell in love with a Nikon D300. I went home and researched this camera for two days. I could not believe that 42nd st had it cheaper than best buy. I am so happy with my camera and have been taking photos non stop for the last week. I recommend 42nd St to anyone looking to buy a camera regardless of price or experience. The sales people know their stuff.

I ordered a new Kodak digital camera to take with on a family vacation and I needed a place with decent prices that could ship same day or, at the latest, next day. I called the customer service once my order was confirmed and they were able to ship it that same day and I received the camera a day ahead of when they estimated, which was good - it gave me time to learn how to use it. Very friendly staff here, customer service is outstanding!

  • 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.
