“Glad I found it!”

Written on: 09/04/2017 by Abernathy426 (1 review written)

Stumbled on this wonderful place near where we holiday in the far north of Scotland whilst internet-searching for something else, and paid them a visit. Impressively stocked fine renovated chapel, staffed by helpful folk who know their business. Ended up buying a spotting scope, and traded in an old Bronica SQ-A and lenses in part exchange. This had to be inspected and valued (along with a lot of other folks' stuff) and was delighted that they were prepared to jump the queue for me to meet my… Read Full Review

“Customer Service at it's Best”

Written on: 06/04/2017 by gbealnz (1 review written)

I was looking for a slightly obscure item, an angle finder for an old Leicaflex SL. Ffordes showed a selection of them, and I e mailed them. Within less than half an hour I had a reply, a very courteous reply, and within the hour I had settled on what I wanted, and paid for the item. The cost was reasonable, very reasonable in fact, and the postage costs equally so. The item arrived in about a week, very good service considering we could not be further apart geographically. Service, price… Read Full Review

“Excellent service!”

Written on: 01/04/2017 by R.Graham (2 reviews written)

I'd bought a Fuji GX680 and various lenses from Ffordes a while back and was impressed with both quality and the speed of delivery. While on the lookout for an Imacon scanner, I noticed Ffordes had one in good condition in stock for a really good price. I had no hesitation in ordering, and am glad I bought it before someone else did! It was dispatched the next day and arrived the day after, with emails from both Ffordes and the delivery company to keep me updated on progress. The scanner was… Read Full Review

“Top notch product & service!”

Written on: 08/03/2017 by Johnmell (1 review written)

I had heard a lot of positive things about Ffordes but this was my first purchase from them and I was very impressed with the level of service I received. I bought a used Nikon 300mm lens which was delivered next day and it was in immaculate condition, way better than I expected. I also emailed them after I received my order to ask them a question about another product and they replied back with some very useful information but there was no pressure from them for me to make a further purchase… Read Full Review

I was looking for a six by seven medium format camera, so after scanning various sites, I ended up using Ffordes Photographic, I found them very helpful and polite (yes they are there to sell me a product, but there are ways of doing it.)Communication by phone or e-mail was always very quick and concise.
