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 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.

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.

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've purchased Sony HDR-SR12 from 42nd photo. The camcorder is excellent! I've already made lots of video and I'm absolutely satisfied with it's quality. However in addition to camera I purchased some items which I decided not to use and when I brought them back I got offer to exchange or get refund. I had chosen refund and got my money back. No problem. I recommend this reseller and in case you have any questions or problems with returns or refunds, just drop a letter to info at 42photo dot com or sales at 42photo dot com and they will help you in highly professional manner.

From A to Z these guys have it all. From price to service, delivery and advice. I placed my order over the internet for the new canon camera. Literally after five seconds of placing my order I receieved a copy of my order thru email. The next day I called into 42nd street photo wondering if they can upgrade my shipping. To my surprise they already shipped out my order and I got it two days before I expected it. Like I said from A to Z.

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!

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.

Best camera store in the USA

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 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!
