My story regarding Broadway Photo (doing business as Millennium Camera and others) is not important. After a while they all sound the same. Here's the important information, including the names of the owners and physical addresses. See the sheddingsomelight websight.

The owners are Albert Houllou and Marvin Schwartz.

The two main physical addresses are -

2922 Avenue L, Brooklyn, NY 11210

and 337 East 89th St., Brooklyn NY 11236.

Broadway camera came out in a few search results not as the cheapest but affordable and most important have the product in stock.
I called a day later to confirm that they actually have it in stock and they said it is !!
once I rejected any other offer for batteries, charges ,lens cleaning kits and other cheap junk,I got an email that it is not in stock.
Calling them again I was informed of a U.S version with a better batteries that cost another 200 dollars.
Don?t buy from there because you?ll spend ours with your credit card company any shady people from ?Broadway ?.
if you read any positive review it just can't be real.

I always hope for the best when it comes to New York Camera shops, and ALMOST always end up with the worst. This shop, Broadway Photo, is yet another in the seemingly endless line of Bait and Switch price shops that only seem to operate in New York ( Must be a leadership problem, ya think ? ).
I ordered a camera online, it has been IN STOCK on their web page for over 2 weeks while searching. They told me in an email I had to "call to confirm " my order ( a dead give away as no Legitimate shop insists you " confirm" and order when they have all the required information. I called, left a message confirming, wasnt good enough, had to "talk" to someone. Called again, re-confirmed. by now, instead of 1-2 business days after ordering, it was a week before even having the ordered processed.
That NIGHT, I get a letter saying " Oh sorry for the inconvenience but that product is out of stock and wont be in for 4-6weeks " when i TOLD them I needed this taken care of ASA P as it was a gift.
Of course, more expensive cameras are available, even though THIS MODEL is STILL on their web site as IN STOCK.
If they cant honor their web site prices, they needed to be fined 50x the price of EVERY camera they refuse to sell because they cant "turn you" to a much higher priced item. That needs to be a LAW in NY since that is where nearly 90% of these shops operate.

WOULDNT BUY from these scumbags if the camera has last one on earth and i had to have it.

Pros: no "Pro's " work their at all, just professional con artists.

Cons: If you want to be ripped off, by all means, shop here.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCAMMING BAIT AND SWITCHER. You may be tempted by the low prices on their website (Or low prices they quote to you on the phone). Do not be at all tempted. They do not tell you these price quotes are for GRAY MARKET products. So when you order online, you will receive a note in the email requesting you call them to confirm your order. Then you call them and they tell you that you have a camera which only includes a 20 minute battery, and a recharger that might not work with American outlets, and manuals in a different language, and guess what, only their (Broadway Photos) warranty (Which is worth less than the toilet paper it is written on). So then they tell you in order to get the better, 2 hour battery, and "American" recharger, and manufacturer warranty, you will need to spend 100's more. If you say you don't want that, then magically, they will not have your camera. BUYER BEWARE, stay away. Do not get suckered in by this unscrupulous "company" They are all low lifers, in particular, the owner, who has no ethics or concious. His "success" is in his ability to swindle innocent people. His success is his ability to train salesmen the art of bait and switch innocent customers. To the owner, and he knows who he is, he is pathetic in every way. Small man. Very small.

Cons: Everything - Avoid at all costs

An absolutely terrible expericience. After placing my order online I recieved an email telling me that they need to contact me to verify my order only to find that's a ploy to sell me everything that goes with the camera I ordered.
very rude sale associated that denies any previous conversation. If you need to buy any electronics you can definetly get somewhere else with less headache and stress. These guys shouldn't be in business.

The salesman claimed he didn't know what Grey Market goods were (they have a discaimer on their web site stating they carry Grey Market. I politely asked for a supervisor. He claimed he was the supervisor and the highest level person I would reach there. I explained Grey Market, he said the camera (Canon Rebel XSI) is available in silver or black. We went in that circle three times, I explained three times very clearly what Grey Market is. Very illusive.The Salesman spoke perfect Brooklyn English. I called customer service and they tried to connect me back to sales without hearing me out ( I was polite and patient). My experience with Broadway left me feeling these folks are the used car salesman of the camera business. If you like playing Russian Roullette with your money, I highly recommend Broadway Photo.

Cons: not USA warranty, and elusive about it when asked

Beware!!! Never do business with Broadway Photo -- Scam company!

The price you see on their website is NOT the amount that will be deducted from your bank or credit card!

I received an email telling me to call to confirm my order. When I did, the rep tried to push a carry case and lens hood...for a fisheye lens! I insisted that all I wanted was the lens.

I left phone messages and emailed repeatedly when I discovered that my account had been overcharged by $85.18. It has been a week and still nobody has responded, despite their guaranteed reply within 48-72 hours.

Luckily, my bank is reversing this unauthorized charge and filing a fraud claim for me. I wish I had done some research before jumping on this "great deal". I feel like a fool!

UPDATE:

I finally got an email response from these rip-off specialists. This is all they wrote:

"Handling and insurance fees were $85"

!!!What???!!! Which famous celebrity did they hire to package my product for that price??? And I did not request insurance! Their website stated: Free Shipping! How do these crooks get away with this B.S.???

Stay away from this company. After order you will be told in a email that you have to contact them to confirm order before shipment, this of course is a way to get you on the phone. They will then try to sell you everything under the sun, and they don't like to take no for a answer. I order a television, they also told me that I needed to order a pedestal for the television if I wasn't going to put it on the wall, they said that they're company is the only place in the world where this pedestal is available, anyone with half a brain knows this isn't true, but I suppose he thinks customers are all idiots. He said the pedestal would be $200. I told him to just cancel the order, he then told me that I should have done research before I order the item. He was real smart mouth and rude, they did cancel my order, they've now sent me a letter telling me that my credit card will be refunded for the charge, yes they charge my credit card before item was ship. Only buy from this company if you want stress in your life.

Cons: Rude Sales Personnel, dishonest aproach to business.

Please don't fall for their advertised lowest price. They will never sell it to you for that low price.

I recent purchased a digital camera from them and it was the worst experience ever. After placing the order online, I received an e-mail indicating that I needed to contact them in order for them to complete the processing of the order. This is only their way of getting you to connect with a very aggressive sales rep who will promise to upgrade the battery, charger, memory card, etc., while overselling you items that you don't need. Of course his only goal is to increase the sales figure. In my case I received a bill for twice the original invoice amount.

They also advertise free shipping but charge a handling and insurance fee of $27.50. Guess how much the shipping charge would have been?

Finally, not everything promised was included in the shipment. After several phone calls I was promised that the missing items would be backordered. Guess what? I am still waiting.

A very bad experience.
