I purchased a body cap for one of my canon cameras. The item arrived packaged very well and the shipment was very fast. The price was very reasonable as well. I highly recommend 42nd Street Photo.\r

I bought a Digital Basic Controls DVD for my Canon Rebel T3i. It was less than half the price of purchasing it in a retail store in my area. Received it when promised. I will definitely use them for future purchases.

Wonderful! I was first skeptical about buying such a cheap neck strap, but it exceeded my expectations! I also didn't plan for it to receive it so soon. Fast shipping, cheap and quality items. I'll definitely recommend them to anyone!

42nd Street Photo offers some of the best prices youll see on the internet. They have a lot of quality items in stock. My advice for placing online orders is to review what you want online and then call them to place the order. If you place on order directly online, it will likely be delayed because theyll likely call you back to confirm details about your order. This can be a frustrating experience especially if youre difficult to reach during the day and are 3 times zones away from New York.

Ive learned that they do take customer service seriously. I worked with an online representative Jonathan that quickly cleared up confusion with my order. Thus, if you do have an issue with your order they will fix it. In the end youll end up with a quality item at a great price.

In the fall, Ill be looking for a Nikon D800. This will be the first place Ill look.

I have used B&H in the past. They have good service but high prices. 42nd street had the best prices on a T3i of any reputable company. I will be using them in the future. Customer service was great. They called before the item was shipped to confirm the order. They did try to up-sell a few things, but that's no biggy. Its easy to say no.

Purchased a new Canon T3 for my wife for Mother's Day. 42nd Street beat the best price I could find anywhere else by $80. A friendly staff member called me to verify the purchase. It arrived quickly, the day after the verification. I'll definitely buy from 42nd Street again!

I recently ordered a new megazoom Panasonic from 42nd street. Their price was 40-50 dollars cheaper than any competitior's site which is what initially drew me in. After ordering, their staff communicated clearly and let me know all details about my order. The camera arrived promptly and as advertized, and I'm enjoying it immensely. Would definitely buy again from 42nd Street Photo!

I was recently research about a compacy camera. I find all the info I needed and my deal on 42nd st Photo. love the simple buying experience. I was expecting a call after i place an order online and expecting a call to sell me extra. Like the way they present the additional items I may needed. Like the fact that I already have the extra and not insist on me buying extra. And fullfill the order as promise. I have not got extra, if it was a difference store will tell me the item is out of stock. Thanks.

I was prepared for that phone call where i was supposedly going to get harassed by the sales guy. I did get a phone call where they did try to upsell me, but the guy (named Robert) was nice and when he realized I didn't need anything, he didn't press on. He told me that my camera would ship and lo and behold it shipped just like they said. I got it and it was perfect. I got a Canon EOS Rebel t3i and I'm 100% satisfied with 42nd street photo.

At first, I was worried that after I bought my T3i that they were going to try to hard sell me. But it turns out that they were just being thorough! And they followed up after I received my camera to make sure everything was ok. Talk to Jonathan. He can help!

I'd ordered a T3i kit with a 18-135mm lens about a week before leaving for my international trip. The price was fantastic and about $75 lesser than the competition even with the expedited 2 day shipping charges added.\n\nWhen I didnt receive a tracking number for 4 days (including the weekend), I called them up to figure out what happened. Due to some mixup, I was told, that it hadn't shipped yet, but that they would overnight it to me right away.\n\nTrue to their word, I received the package the day before I was leaving. \n\nI opened up the package in a hurry only to find that the box and everything on it seemed to indicate that it was the standard 18-55mm lens kit. I was a bit disappointed and worked up. It was late at night (~11pm pacific), so the lines were closed, but on a hunch, I emailed them about this problem. \n\nWithin 20 minutes I got an email reply from Elliot, asking me to check the actual contents and not the prints on the box.\n\nGlad he did, coz it was the right lens and I had a fantastic trip with the camera. \n\nMy only concern is that since the box had been opened and the original lens replaced, that I'd maybe gotten an open box item. But they've assured me that this is a brand new kit and that the box was opened only to fulfill my order in a timely fashion since maybe they didnt have the exact kit I'd ordered.\n\nNo other complaints so far. Price and service cant be beat.\n

Received a call a few days after placing the order, confirmed a few details, offered some complementary products at big discounts, no pressure. Using my camcorder three days later.

Just purchased a new black Canon Powershot S100 from 42nd Street Photo. They had the best price on the web. The packaging was excellent and delivery was prompt. They even threw in a bonus cleaning kit which was a nice surprise. I was a bit tentative after seeing some negative reviews on Yelp but their overall positive reseller-ratings seem justified. I will definitely order from them again.

I'm so glad I found this website. I had broken my previous camera and wanted an exact replacement. Not only was I able to find the same camera - it was the same price as I paid for my original camera 6 months ago. Best price offered on all my web searches. \nExceptionally fast delivery with a tracking number - couldn't ask for more.

My original review is below. After posting this review (and the same review at another site), I got called by a 42nd street customer service representative who was very apologetic and wanted to know what he could do to make my experience right. He refunded the extra money I had to pay and threw in insurance for free and the lens filters as well. He thought the employee had had a bad day (it was actually several bad days). He definitely made up for a bad experience. I do wish there was some way to contact customer service instead of the original salesperson if you have a problem...\n\n"" I ordered an expensive Nikon lens from 42 street for my college kid for Christmas. I had gotten the specifics of the lens from the kid. After ordering the lens, I got a call from ""Adam"" who said that I should buy a different lens that was on special and was a better lens and a better deal and they would also throw in a 3 year warranty. I explained that I knew nothing about cameras and that the child had been very specific about the lens. He said that for just a bit more money the other lens would be much better etc etc. I ended up buying the other lens at his suggestion. I later found out that the lens I had been talked into actually sold for LESS than the original lens I had ordered and that I had been talked into extra money for a lens that was of inferior quality and the extra money was going to un-needed lens filters and insurance. My daughter called to try to exchange the lens and told me the person was horrid and would not exchange aything. I called back and was routed to Adam who was extremely rude and would not let me talk with a manager. After multiple calls, I finally was able to skirt Adam. After extensive talk with an also unhelpful manager, I was able to get the original lens for a higher price than originally ordered. I would NEVER order from this business again. It was a nightmare...""

I do wish there was some way to contact customer service instead of the original salesperson if you have a problem...\n\n"" I ordered an expensive Nikon lens from 42 street for my college kid for Christmas. I had gotten the specifics of the lens from the kid. After ordering the lens, I got a call from ""Adam"" who said that I should buy a different lens that was on special and was a better lens and a better deal and they would also throw in a 3 year warranty. I explained that I knew nothing about cameras and that the child had been very specific about the lens. He said that for just a bit more money the other lens would be much better etc etc. I ended up buying the other lens at his suggestion. I later found out that the lens I had been talked into actually sold for LESS than the original lens I had ordered and that I had been talked into extra money for a lens that was of inferior quality and the extra money was going to un-needed lens filters and insurance. My daughter called to try to exchange the lens and told me the person was horrid and would not exchange aything. I called back and was routed to Adam who was extremely rude and would not let me talk with a manager. After multiple calls, I finally was able to skirt Adam. After extensive talk with an also unhelpful manager, I was able to get the original lens for a higher price than originally ordered. I would NEVER order from this business again. It was a nightmare...""

We have been using 42nd Street Photo since we lived in New York years ago. We've always had good service and good products. We just ordered a new gps-enabled camera - got a great price and received it in just a few days.

It was good, everything went well. They called me back about a warranty very fast but i feel was a bit sketchy on the price.
