“Courteous, Reliable and Efficient!”

Written on: 29/11/2016 by greentree100 (1 review written)

I was wishing to upgrade to a newer camera and didn't want the hassle of selling the current one on eBay. I came across Ffordes and I am not sorry I did! The whole exercise was smooth. Always responding promptly to emails so I knew what was going on. After a few weeks the camera was sold and I received the cheque on the day promised… Read Full Review

“A high quality online camera shop”

Written on: 07/11/2016 by velonut (1 review written)

This company provides an excellent customer focused service. I have used them to dispose of over 30 items of medium format and SLR film equipment. Their assessment of the conditions was very honest and the few defects they identified were repaired at a competitive price. The valuations were most acceptable and I was amazed that they were able to sell certain items which I thought were of little or no value. The customer care and support has been prompt and of high quality. I would recommend… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service All Round”

Written on: 21/10/2016

After upgrading my camera, which was prior to discovering Ffordes) my old kit was gathering dust, i also needed new lenses but i could not be bothered with the hassle and risks of trying to sell through those online auction type sites. Other specialist photographic companies were located too far away in England (with other risks & postage issues) and i prefer to have the face-to-face experience and advice from people who know their subject. I then discovered Ffordes, located in a beautiful… Read Full Review

“A proper camera shop!”

Written on: 19/10/2016 by Enochdhu (1 review written)

Ffordes reminds me of a time when camera shops were exciting emporia of exotic glass and aspirational cameras, that were staffed by enthusiastic and knowledgeable photographers who guided you to the best solution rather than just selling you a box with the latest promotion. Nowadays so many photographic retailers are no more than box shifters who know more about their SKUs than the product they are selling. Not so at Ffordes! You walk in to a lovely old building which is situated adjacent to… Read Full Review

“Trade-in DSLR for Micro Four Thirds”

Written on: 16/10/2016 by McCoybx214 (1 review written)

For some time I had been considering trading my bulky DSLR kit for something lighter. I decided that Micro 4/3 was the best option for me. Having obtained quotations from 3 different companies, the offer from Ffordes was significantly better. I purchased the new camera from Ffordes and posted my old equipment to them. Not long after having received my old equipment I received payment.Excellent service. Unfortunately, the lens on my new M4/3 camera was not sharp on one side of the frame. I… Read Full Review

“Very good seller. Top quality.”

Written on: 14/10/2016 by LucasMcKinley179 (1 review written)

I received today my latest purchase: a beautiful Sony RX100, used. There is not much to say except that the description on the site reported "light signs of use" but once opened the package I found in my hands a camera practically new. The shipment has been immediate and, considering the distance (Italy), very fast. Very nice packaging. A final word should be said for the staff: very willing to answer any questions (almost instant communication via email), and above all very nice and… Read Full Review

“Nikon DSLR part-exchange”

Written on: 11/10/2016 by AHSeddon (1 review written)

Ffordes maintain an excellent website, full of useful items and information. I was successful in managing to trade up from an older Nikon DSLR, but unfortunately the D7100 I bought was discovered as having a major circuit fault. The technician I dealt with was knowledgeable and very diligent: kept me informed by email on the attempts at repair; and when this proved impossible, he managed to source another D7100 in better condition. So, very pleased. Helpful, professional service. Would always… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service ”

Written on: 15/09/2016 by Lawrence1948 (1 review written)

I have used Ffordes for nearly 20 years now firstly to sell my old film cameras. This is my only port of call for buying secondhand equipment I don't tend to buy brand new equipment as I don't need to I bought a canon camera advertised as slight signs of use it looked brand new. I've also visited the shop to receive a very friendly welcome and guys are very knowledgeable. Excellent service and very fast dispatch of goods… Read Full Review

“Exemplary Customer Service!”

Written on: 07/09/2016 by Cannonky83 (1 review written)

My wife purchased a pair of binoculars at the Scottish Game Fair as a present for me. Unfortunately there was a manufacturing fault when I eventually received them a month or so later. Ffordes staff were tremendous. The binoculars were returned and a new pair arrived on my doorstep 48 hours later with a small gift to cover my postage and inconvenience. If only all businesses were so quick to remedy things when they go awry. Full marks to Ffordes and I will have hesitation in using and… Read Full Review
