I have bought a number of items over the past few months including a camera, lenses and accessories. There seems to be a trend with the service. They're pretty unfriendly and way pricier than other shops and websites. After a pretty rude encounter most recently I've decided I won't use them again. I'd rather do my research and buy online. I think they might want to wake up to the fact that in the competitive world of retail you need to go the extra mile if you're going to compete. Avoid - you… Read Full Review

I found what looked a good deal on a camera lens. Checked out York and looked OK. Next thing day a refund, I take it they didn’t have the lenses. They get one star for doing a refund one for doing it quickly and no more as no apology was sent and it annoys me greatly when firms just list things with no idea if they actually have them… Read Full Review

Needed to buy a camera as a present and the advice and service we received was second to none. Have left the shop confident we have made the right purchase and knowing we only have to ring or e mail and get any further support. Many thanks. Very courteous service . Very clear instructions on how to use the cameras we considered. No pressure to buy extras we did not need… Read Full Review

Yesterday I went to town with a disc holding 155 photos to print, in 4 files for 4 different sizes, and some paper photos to scan, not relishing the prospect of spending an hour at JESSOPS carefully working on each picture. When I arrived in town, I saw that Jessops had closed down! This was bad news, especially as I’d had a VB experience with the other photo shop I know, on the bridge. I remembered this little shop in Church Street, which I’d entered a couple of times over the years to… Read Full Review

After 3 phone calls to the shop to talk about replaceing my old Nikon D50 complete with a Sigma 70-300mm lens and Tamron 70-300mm, I told the person on the phone that there was a small hairline crack of about 3mm on the D50 body, because of this he said it would only be worth about £100 and about £50 for each of the lenses, as the items where 6 years old I was happy at the value given. He quoted me £540 for the Nikon D3100 with either a Sigma or Tamrom 70-300mm lens with the Uv filters and… Read Full Review

I went into this shop to do a potential part exchange on my camera as I wanted to upgrade. I was shocked by how low a valuation I got for my equipment. Now, my camera is a boxed Sony a390 in excellent condition with Jessops flashgun and an additional Sony 75-300mm lens, also boxed. Now www.cex.co.uk, A HIGH STREET trader were willing to offer me £325 for the same equipment part exchange while here they offered me a mere £200. This would mean I would be losing what could be worth up to £350… Read Full Review

Went into York today to purchase a lens, and went to this shop based on a recommendation.
Have to say that I wish I'd bought my camera here a month back!
This is a brilliant shop, run by people who genuinely care.
I went in with only a vague idea of what I wanted (a Sony zoon), and was given a load of advice based on what would be best for me personally. I was given a chance to get a feel for a couple of lenses, and given plenty of time to decide.
I decided to go for the Sigma lens in the… Read Full Review

I bought my Lumix GH1 last year and didn't think to write a review. I had been wanting this particular camera for ages, then one day, I was at York Camera Mart and saw it cheaper than anywhere else. The owner was very helpful, and better still - he seemed interested! and let me play with it in the shop. I bought it and have been very happy with it.
My son has just tried to buy a Sony SLR + a long lens from CameraBox.co.uk and has had apalling service from them. They took the money, sent the… Read Full Review

Although the York Camera Mart was busy I have to say that I felt under no pressure to make a purchase and wasn't treat like I was in a cattle market, like some major stores can make you feel. The Manager who I dealt with was curtious and friendly. I have to say that making my purchase was an extremley pleasurable experience… Read Full Review
