“Excellent, speedy dependable.”

Written on: 24/08/2015 by gm0wnr (1 review written)

I ordered a Panasonic Lumix GF-1 m43 camera from FFordes, it arrived next day in what can only be described as "Mint" having only been advertised as EXC++. Very happy with their service and prices. Keep up the good work… Read Full Review

“Lots of second hand stuff on sale, great service”

Written on: 16/08/2015 by xhLeslie1989 (1 review written)

I have bought and sold stuff through ffordes for a couple of years now. I have always been very happy with the great service and good quality of the products. Staff is always replying to questions, even when the question turns out to be quite silly. Prices are a bit above the average, as far as I have seen, but the quality of the service and warranty more than justifies the extra. When selling my own stuff on commission, things went quick, I got very reasonable money for my cameras without… Read Full Review

“Selling & Buying with Ffordes”

Written on: 10/08/2015 by ErikRichard (1 review written)

Have now been both buying & selling photographic equipments at Ffordes for the last 2-3 and always got a customer's support that many other companies could learn from! Selling. - I'm a collector of photographic items and of course it happens that I get duplicates and other things that don't fit into the collection. A friend told me about Ffordes and I had a look and found out that they also buy used stuff - both directly buyings but also take in stuff for commision sales as well as for… Read Full Review

“Always satisfied with this company!”

Written on: 10/08/2015

I have used Ffordes both to sell used items on my behalf and as a buyer and have always found them to be very efficient and courteous to deal with, both on the telephone and via email (I have never set foot in the store as I don't live anywhere near them). My most recent experience was purchasing a used lens, which was priced reasonably and the Ffordes staff dealt swiftly and efficiently with a few questions I had about the lens. The item was despatched quickly and was very well packed, and I… Read Full Review

“Great service! Quick and knowledgeable.”

Written on: 06/08/2015 by andy.roberts (1 review written)

I've dealt with Ffordes for a few years now and always been impressed by their honest service and quick responses. I think the pricing is competitive on new gear and their commission selling is hassle free and works really well. Everyone I have dealt with are knowledgeable and great at getting back to me, whether its phone or email. I don't like dealing with anyone else now… Read Full Review

“Easy Option for selling your gear”

Written on: 31/07/2015 by Joelm337 (1 review written)

I've sold several items of equipment using Ffordes commission based sales recently and all sold within a reasonable time and for a price that I was happy with. Maybe I could have sold privately for slightly more, but I honestly don't think it would have been worth all the time, aggravation and risk had I done so and I suspect I would still have some items for sale. The pick up courier service for sending equipment to them is excellent, hassle free and very good value for money. I'll certainly… Read Full Review

“Long term customer”

Written on: 21/07/2015 by Petercrane (1 review written)

I have used Ffordes for several years now, part-exchanging virtually all my film camera and slide equipment, buying new and secondhand cameras, lenses and a projector. And recently returning a Leica compact that had failed - replaced with a later brand new model. The quality of the secondhand equipment has been superb, and the service unsurpassed.items have been well packed and often arrived overnight. I have total confidence in buying anything photographic from them… Read Full Review

“Genuine Professional and Polite Service.”

Written on: 08/07/2015 by MrRobertson (2 reviews written)

I had been looking for a camera bag for my holiday. I knew from searching the WEB that to meet the strict airline carry on baggage size that I would need a Kata R103. I knew that this bag was no longer available new so started my on line search. Ffordes Photographic was my first choice. I looked and saw they had the exact bag that I required. I phoned the shop and spoke to a guy who confirmed that they still had the bag. I asked a couple of questions one which was if the rain cover was with the… Read Full Review

“Olympus E3 ”

Written on: 06/07/2015 by Bauerhz256 (1 review written)

Quite simple and a bit boring really, I had a look on Ebay and LCE etc for an E3, the E USER group forum always seem to recommend FFords so I thought I would give it a go, found a couple of E3`s, picked it, payed for it , delivered it (with 48 hours), low shutter count , clean as a whistle, rekindles my Olympus fire, again apologies for the boring review but when its right its right !! thank you FFordes… Read Full Review

“Selling a big pile of Sony gear.”

Written on: 03/07/2015 by Kevlar_Ork (1 review written)

I have recently moved from Sony A mount to Sony E mount and was looking at the best way to sell all my gear. eBay being a hotbed for scammers on large value sales put me off so I looked to more local means. Ffordes has a great name in the UK and after a few emails, very quickly replied to, I decided to sell through them. As a commissioned sale, they sell for the market value and ONLY take 20% which is amazing. As of right now, full frame E mount lenses are not featured too heavily on their… Read Full Review

“Dependable service ”

Written on: 12/06/2015 by DesmondAndersen420 (1 review written)

I have bought from this store (and sold items through them on a commission basis)several times over the years. I have always found the staff to be helpful and the secondhand items well graded for their condition. I have bought lenses marked as 'EXC++' and found this to be a very conservative description! I highly recommend this store… Read Full Review
