“Does not ship the goods”

Written on: 13/04/2015

I give up on this seller. I ordered at least 6 or 7 times from this seller over a period of three years, from three different locations in France (Paris and outside Paris). I received the first two orders, to my satisfaction(yes, you should not necesseraly believe the descriptions, but photos are OK). However I never received the last 3 or 4 orders. No tracking number, not confirmation of expedition, nothing. And this is not a problem with the mail. The good side is that I have been reimbursed… Read Full Review

“Great value, excellent range”

Written on: 12/04/2015 by 335Wells (1 review written)

I have been buying from Rocky for several years - he has operated from a market stall in my local town, and it has been very useful to be able to talk to him about what he has coming up. I have bought 4 camera bodies and several lenses, all of them in good condition, apart from one which he promptly replaced. You need to know what you are looking for, and to be able to relate price to condition. I would never buy used camera equipment without having a good look first or at least talking in… Read Full Review

“Great value and very fast delivery”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by KarenLRPhoto (1 review written)

I've been an avid photographer all my life and have come to regret disposing of some of my early cameras. I decided recently I wanted to collect "my life in cameras" to display in my studio and came upon Rocky Cameras whilst doing an online search for a Zenit E. I was blown away by the great prices but concerned about the poor reviews I also found online, but in the end I decided to take a chance on the basis the cameras I was ordering (the Zenit E and a Lubitel 2 TLR camera) were to be display… Read Full Review

“Worst camera dealer, Avoid”

Written on: 13/02/2015 by Nylah411 (1 review written)

Terrible service, firstly shoved any old cameras instead of ones I ordered in box, except my main reason for order which wasnt in box at all, replacements for missing cameras were cheap and some broken, no notice he was going to do this, after several emails later he sent out the main camera in another package only for it arrive with no lense or shutter despite description stating shutter firing correctly, after two weeks from initial order and many emails I went to paypal for refund, which I… Read Full Review

Please contact Dorset Trading Standards, because this man just doesn't learn, and he needs to be stopped.

“Good overall service”

Written on: 31/01/2015 by ChadWooten (1 review written)

There seems to be quite a lot of bad reviews about Rocky Cameras but I have bought several items from him and have no complaints whatsoever. The items have always been as described, prompt postage and Ive always been more than satisfied. More often than not, the prices are cheaper than you'll pay on ebay! Ill continue to buy from him!!!!… Read Full Review

“Tricky Seller”

Written on: 28/12/2014 by urMooney383 (1 review written)

I ordered from this guy four times...mainly because he carries some things that are hard to find in the US and at reasonable prices (cheaper than EBAY). One of the seller's tricks is to leave items out of your order on purpose. If you order 4 items, he'll ship 2 items to you or if you order a camera with a lens, he'll just ship the camera body to you... Beware of his condition grading as well. He often states that an item is in "optically perfect condition". What does that mean,btw? Or he just… Read Full Review

“Opticaly Perfect Condition?”

Written on: 16/09/2014 by Ray272 (1 review written)

I ordered some lenses of which were all described as being "In Optically Perfect Condition" When they arrived, they had very noticeably fungus and haze, by far optically perfect. It appears nothing is checked or tested correctly, so if you want to take a gable, pay with Paypal so you can get your money back… Read Full Review

“Camera meter doesn't work”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by 441Whitaker (1 review written)

I bought a camera advertised as being in excellent condition and working order. Rocky was away, but the communication from his site was good, and my camera came quickly one he had returned. However, the meter doesn't work. I contacted Rocky who asked me to return the camera. I was planning to do so, after checking that he would pay the postage costs. Then I found the comments on this site, for which I am grateful, since it may have saved me loosing another £5 to return the item, and still not… Read Full Review

Bought a few items, one is not present and others damaged, return request well accepted by the seller, very helpful, too bad there will reimburse ever! Multiple emails never answered. tried with another email, response was until I revealed who I am and that I wanted information about the refund. After no more...

“Load Of K-rap”

Written on: 25/03/2014 by Sara125 (1 review written)

Totally krap company. Ordered a camera described as Good to Mint. The item received was a piece of shti. Ok, i thought no problem i`ll just send it back and get my money back. Doesn`t answer emails or telephone calls or voice messages. Eventually got through to a pleasant lady and after explaining my problem was told to return. I advised i wanted my postage back and covered under DSR. (We will wait and see)Then i get an email from a person, whom tells me item was not damaged when shipped and i… Read Full Review

“I ordered two lenses for over £200 three months ago....”

Written on: 26/02/2014

I ordered two lenses for over £200 three months ago. They never arrived. Rocky responded to all my emails for first six weeks with various excuses making me believe they were coming. He once even wrote "be patient"! Then after six weeks the replies ceased. No response. So I contact Paypal to launch a dispute, they've got protection right?. Well they won't do anything after 45 days (shocking - credit cards are legislated to protect you for six years). The funds came out of my positive Paypal… Read Full Review

“Camera returned, no refund and no contact”

Written on: 13/01/2014 by ayykkw (1 review written)

Returned a camera to but haven't heard a word despite constant e-mails and phone calls. Prices on the website are dirt cheap and I have bought some bargains there (e.g. cameras and some lenses) which have all been fine. However, I don't like dealing with people who mess customers around so please avoid… Read Full Review

“Sells you rubbish, does't answer your emails ”

Written on: 31/10/2013

I bought an m42 carl zeiss lens of the rocky cameras site, there where others of the same kind that where marked as semi-working (the aperture wouldn't work correctly) but I chose to spend the extra money on getting one masked as being in excellent condition. I was annoyed to say the least when i got my lens and found that the aperture does not stop down correctly. I've emailed the site and got no response. it only cost £24 for the lens so it's not worth the hassle of chasing this up… Read Full Review

“Rocky (Junk) Camera”

Written on: 14/09/2013

Recently ordered a 'fully working, optically perfect' (or words to that effect) Konica 35 compact rangefinder from this joker. The camera arrived looking nice but..... The lens was jammed solid and would not budge to focus it. For you Konica experts out there, no - it wasn't the flash focus limits in action. Secondly the light seals had perished and were all over the inside of the camera. Thirdly. I put a battery in the camera to find that the light meter didn't work. Contacted 'Rocky' and… Read Full Review

“Could be worse. ”

Written on: 31/07/2013 by Declan012 (1 review written)

I have made several orders with rocky cameras, all of my items have showed up, either working or not (as specified), and as i expect with old cameras, a bit grummy, but i don't mind cleaning my own cameras. My first order took over two weeks to arrive, my second order took 3 days (maybe he has a two week post office run?), and i've just placed an order now. His customer service is awful, i'll be honest, never answers his phone and never replies to his emails, unless it's to talk about an… Read Full Review

“What's it called when someone takes your money? T_ _...”

Written on: 27/05/2013

How can this bunch stay in business? Until I read the other reviews I assumed I was just an unfortunate exception, but it is perfectly clear that this company has an ongoing practice of taking customers money and not supplying the goods or passing off defective goods as sound. It is a very safe bet that the reviews on this site represent only the tip of the iceberg of customers who have been on the receiving end of rocky cameras trading practices. I only wish that I had an opportunity to meet… Read Full Review
