“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

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Tennantjs31 (1 review written)

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... HIGHLY NOT RECCOMENDED! such behavior can be awarded only by not buying anything more… Read Full Review

“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

“No communication, no shipment”

Written on: 22/01/2013

Ordered January 10th, received a prompt "dispatch" mail but without a tracking number. It is now two weeks later and I tried to contact "Rocky Cameras" several times via e-mail and never received a response. I also opened a Paypal dispute to trigger any form of reaction but ... nothing. Will try to get my money back now through Paypal. Looking at the amount of negative feedback here I wonder how this guy can still be in business. Not recommended! Buy elsewhere!… Read Full Review

“The bad def outweigh the good”

Written on: 16/01/2013 by TractorboyPaul (1 review written)

Am always willing to give the benefit of the doubt but with Rockys Cameras (aka Mr Keith Rock) I recommend a wide berth. Ordered about 4 bits from him and only one either worked or was as described (a Pentax 28-90AF lens) Whenever I have emailed him to get his side I never receive a reply let alone a refund. He attends "Photographica" every year and has a huge stall selling everything from some nice bits to basically rubbish - all he is interested in a making £££££ by selling stuff in the… Read Full Review

“Satisfied customer, be clear about what you are buying”

Written on: 05/12/2012 by fredtheoyster (1 review written)

I've now made four purchases from this seller, and have been satisfied on each occasion. The second order never arrived, but I received a prompt and courteous refund when I informed Rocky of this. The other three were no trouble either. I tend to buy cameras as "projects" - ie. ones that are advertised as faulty, and repair them myself, so I've had little necessity of high expectations with what I bought, but the items received have met or exceeded the condition as advertised, and in most… Read Full Review

“Order Non Delivery”

Written on: 16/11/2012 by palabrant (1 review written)

Would have given no stars but one is the minimum. Order not received; no replies to emails, 'not here' when you phone, description of items unreliable. Had one purchase; price OK ish but item not as good as described and needed to get a replacement item from different seller. But not going to hang someone for one mistake so... despite this I went ahead and ordered a couple of further items. Never received these and no response whatsover from Rockys . The phone was actually answered once but of… Read Full Review
