great customer service

"I had ordered a camera, but when the package arrived, there was no camera in it, just a case and an invoice. I called customer service, and they were great about it. They sent a replacement immediately. Apparently, this kind of theft happens often. I'd order again from them with confidence"

42nd street photo swindle

"I'm living in La Reunion island, frensh department in Indian ocean. I ordered for 2000.00 € photo equipment to 42 S.P.. I payed with Credit Card in 2 payments which were cashed in march 23th and 29th 2016. they tried to muddle up me twice times by Email and phone call : first was march 28th, trying to con colors copies of Government issued Photo I.D. and both sides of my C.C. out of me, pretexing additional verification. Second was april 8th, telling me my C.C. process was declined because the security chek from my bank. Now (march 26th 2016) they simply cancelled my order without explanations and no cash me back my money ! Yesterday I lodged a complaint with FBI. (IC3 form) and with the frensh police corp of Gendarmerie Nationale for cyber fraud, told 42nd S.T. what I did by Email. Until now, complete silence from their part ! "

Classic Service!

"I received my cable for my camera not only in pristine condition but also with much promptness. This kind of quality is in short quantity these days. Thank you 42nd Street for being who you are - please don't ever change!"

What camera do I have again?

"I accidentally selected a Nikon lens mount instead of a Sony lens mount while ordering a Sigma 8-16mm online. 42nd Street Photo was great - they had my corrected order straightened out and shipped quickly and painlessly! - Thanks"

Review of purchase of Canon t5i

"My family has been buying cameras from 42 nd St Photo since the mid 50's. It is always a source that I go to when investigating a photo equipment purchase. I feel that the price was right and service I got while purchasing was very good. Delivery was very fast. The camera has performed very well."

Unbeatable Customer Service

" Having lived and worked in New York back in the 70's and early 80's, I was a regular customer at 42nd St. Photo, not only for the convenience but also for the unbeatable prices. So when my daughter asked for a high end camera for her birthday this year, I thought of 42nd St. I hadn't purchased any camera equipment for some time but I had gotten used to on-line shopping so I called up their website. The website was easy to navigate, and just as I remembered, the price for the camera she wanted was unbeatable. The highlight of the shopping experience, however was the followup from 42nd St.'s customer service department. There seemed to be a genuine concern for my satisfaction, not only with the product itself, but also with my overall shopping experience. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to return to 42nd St.'s website for any future purchases!"
