“Warranty Repair of Ricoh Camera”

Written on: 25/07/2012 by RonnieMcNeil (1 review written)

We bought a Ricoh CX3 (great camera by the way) via the internet from Clifton Cameras in August 2010. It developed a faulty LCD screen but we had lost the proof of purchase paperwork. More in hope than expectation I e-mailed Clifton Cameras to see what could be done about it. They replied very quickly and confirmed that they still had a record of the sale and that the camera was still covered by the manufacturer's warranty. They offered to arrange for repair and gave clear instructions about… Read Full Review

“My first really expensive lens”

Written on: 24/07/2012 by Wyeman (1 review written)

Full of doubts - nothing to do with Clifton but when I queried their asking price against one found on the web, their explanation was prompt, precise, and perfectly reasonable. I was happy again. Now I've got my Zeiss and I'm really happy. The lens was delayed in shipment to them but they rang me to explain the delay. I'm very pleased with their customer service. When it arrived, I've never seen an item so eficiently packaged - a total "wow" factor. I haven't entered the "value for money" box… Read Full Review

“Very dissapointed with poor service”

Written on: 12/07/2012

I am afraid that I have to give an extremely poor review with online ordering from Clifton cameras. On Monday I bought and paid for 2 hydrophobia covers and eyepieces after having been told that I would have these in time for the weekend as they were needed for an important event - and weather forecast is for heavy rain. I paid through PayPal and was informed by email that items would be despatched as soon as payment was verified. PayPal payments also attract an extra 4% charge. I emailed… Read Full Review

Have to agree with rubbish service. I bought a lens from them which seemed to have a fault on it. When I returned it they were less than helpful in trying to solve the issue. In the end it was easier to give up than continue to argue the case. Total rubbish. Never again.

“Canon L Lens purchase”

Written on: 04/07/2012 by LotusLee (2 reviews written)

Excellent service and very good price along with a longer guarantee than anyone else offers, I previously tried to purchase via Jessops using there interest free option online and both attempts was a disaster then I discovered Clifton offer the same deal. They are excellent to deal with and I have to say that Jessops and all their customer service department deserve to go bust as they don't deserve the custom. Clifton are a dream to deal with, you get old fashioned customer service that every… Read Full Review

“SERVICE GIVES YOU CONFIDENCE. PRODUCTS SPEAK FOR...”

Written on: 04/07/2012 by IanWM (1 review written)

Having researched extensively, I bought my EOS 60D from Clifton Cameras at the end of last year. There are cheaper options, but not within the UK - and not with the guarantees / backup that Clifton offers. I had some questions about an offer for training courses which were swiftly answered. I have since taken advantage of EOS training which was first class. I have just now exchanged the kit lens that I bought with my camera for a an EF-S 15-85 IS USM lens which now stays on the camera. Again, I… Read Full Review

“Clifton Cameras Purchase”

Written on: 03/07/2012

After spending a lot of time searching the internet for a new Canon EOS 7D I decided to purchase from Clifton Cameras. There are cheaper options out there but they don't always sell UK stock backed by a UK warranty which was important to me. Clifton Cameras supply a free second year warranty which mirrors the manufacturer's one year warranty, giving you that extra piece of mind. As for the service I received, it was absolutely excellent. I rang & spoke to them first and found they were polite… Read Full Review

“Fujifilm X-S1 supply”

Written on: 30/06/2012 by Bandit69 (1 review written)

Highly recommend using Clifton Cameras. Recently ordered on-line but found there was no stock by the time the order was processed & paid for. However, credit to them as their customer service and communication feedback is excellent. They could show many on-line companies the right way of providing good customer service. Anyhow, just some days later, as promised, the goods did arrive and I'm one very satisfied customer. I'm now going to look at getting my filters & spare batteries from here… Read Full Review

Clifton Cameras has been hassle free from the word go. My goods arrived next day special delivery, and i highly appreciated the excellent packaging to protect my order. It was very well presented also. A confirmation email was sent, and stressing a further one would be sent between 16:30 and 17:30pm with tracking details. This email came through following despatch as promised. Clifton Cameras has also great customer service that answered my question, quickly and efficiently. My experience as a… Read Full Review

Pamc2012's Comment

Written on: 12/07/2012

Very different experience to the one that I have just had. Products paid for on Monday - they have not even replied to my emails.

Eventually had to call - only to find that 4 days later nothing has been done because boss is on holiday and nobody else coud check paypal payment - nor it would appear, reply to an email.

I had explained that I must have these items before this weekend - which all seemed no problem until I paid for them.

Would not touch this company again with a barge pole.

“Excellent service”

Written on: 27/06/2012

Although the item I oredered was temporarily out of stock through a computer error, they phoned me straight back and promised to obtain it from Nikon and to get it to me in 4 working days. In the event it came in only three and I was very pleased with the care and service. Good price too!. I shall certainly not think twice about going back to Clifton Cameras… Read Full Review

“Excellent aftersales service”

Written on: 05/06/2012 by ladytees (0 reviews written)

We had a faulty camera just outside of warrenty,literally days out of warrenty. Initially Clifton arranged a repair with the manufacturer but when a year later the same fault occured they arrange a replacement what more could we ask for. Living in the North East we were hardly local however all e mails were handled promptly, a first class service. I have no hesitation in recommending Clifton Cameras as an on line retailer… Read Full Review
