“Just the best guys to deal with for photography ”

Written on: 17/12/2021 by Cerec1 (1 review written)

I’ve been buying used Canon kit from Ffords for years. Service is second to none. The quality of the gear I’ve bought is as good as new. Never an issue with anything and I’ve bought DSLR’s, lenses and flash units. In addition I’ve sold, through these guys ,equipment I no longer required and achieved a higher price than eBay. Just a great company. … Read Full Review

“They're Just Perfect...”

Written on: 01/11/2021 by Fotomann (1 review written)

Perfect; that is the only honest description for Ffordes Photographic. All the staff go out of their way to help you, whether it's for a sale, a trade-in, or just technical advice; and having the wool pulled over your eyes is never a problem. I have been using Ffordes' services for many years, and whether by phone or in person you always come away as a very satisfied customer. Nowadays there is only one photographic equipment and accessories supplier, and that is Ffordes Photographic! The only… Read Full Review

“Vintage camera sold on commission”

Written on: 22/10/2021 by paul6666 (1 review written)

I had my grandfathers Rolleiflex and accessories to sell and chose to sell them on commission with Ffordes. They gave me a valuation based on photographs and send a courier to collect them. Once they arrived they confirmed the valuations - which were in keeping with my expectations of a vintage camera with very little use. The items did not stay long on the shelfs and about 3 weeks later I was paid. Always polite and informative, with good levels of communication. Very pleased with the service… Read Full Review

“Knowledgeable and helpful”

Written on: 29/09/2021 by GarySmith10000000000000000 (1 review written)

I recently decided to have a go at large format analogue. Needing a lens I gave Ffordes a call and straight away they were able to help me in making the right choice and supplying me with a fairly priced used item. When the lens arrived I realised that it had been conservatively described and was therefore much better than I expected. The staff member I spoke to is an active large format photographer so I got loads of tips about loading dark slides and developing tanks, image circle sizes… Read Full Review

“Trading in for new or second hand - never an easy...”

Written on: 17/09/2021 by BaronF (1 review written)

When it comes to cameras I don't like passing them on. However, I had too much gear and I listed it all to get some idea of trade in or Commission sale values. Ffordes provided a detailed evaluation which greatly assisted me in determining what I should keep and what needed to be disposed of. The information that was provided also encouraged me to dispose of a little more in order to buy a new camera. Ffordes proved themselves to be customer orientated, patiently dealing with the questions that… Read Full Review

“Great Service”

Written on: 15/09/2021 by DavidPD (1 review written)

I have used their service on a number of occasions and have always been delighted with the quality of Service and the excellent advice that I received. This time I wanted to meet staff face to face about an upgrade to my binoculars. They were happy to let me try out a number of possibilities in different price ranges. I am really happy with what i have chosen. Then I had some items that I wished them to sell for me. This process has gone very smoothly and within a few days everything is… Read Full Review

“Amazing service as always ”

Written on: 17/03/2021 by RutlandPhotographer (1 review written)

Just imagine this people - you can go online to a UK based dealer - choose the second-hand item you are looking for - see various images of the actual item in high quality - read a full and completely honest description - order it including maybe four months interest free from PP - it is delivered the next day before lunch and it is virtually mint with a six months guarantee. And get this... It was about 10% cheaper than buying a worn out ex-press one from an online auction house. I have dealt… Read Full Review

I found a rare adapter online from silvestri on the Ffordes website , quick delivery in 2 days, straight away got an email and I had the feeling nobody wanted forcing to convince me for the purchase. I’m super happy with the adapter and the 14 days return policy online was even more than welcome and so I just could test it and it fitted perfectly. u happy customer will be back soon… Read Full Review

“I always use Ffordes they are fantastic”

Written on: 25/02/2021 by Alarking (1 review written)

Even though I live in the south of England and have mnah closer shops, I always use Ffordes. The service is amazing. Fast, authentic, everything is as described. Fair prices, shockingly quick delivery. And a good range of stuff to tempt you. I’ve bought lenses. Caneras, and accessories. Once lockdown is over I’ll be driving up to say hello. What do I like about Ffordes? Quality of service, no nonsense experience, fast delivery. What don’t I like? Honestly, can’t think of a single… Read Full Review

“Great helpful people.”

Written on: 19/02/2021 by Paulmate (1 review written)

I have been a very satisfied customer of Ffordes for years. And i am about to try out large format photography for the first time, at 63 years old. You are never too old to learn something new. I am purchasing on-line at the moment, but loved my visits driving from Dunfermline, just to look round and check out the equipment prior to purchasing. It would be great if there was a sit down area to rest and have a cup of coffee and chill out before the long journey home. Hope everyone is keeping… Read Full Review

“Excellent service and price”

Written on: 26/01/2021 by SLGibson (1 review written)

I was recommended to Ffordes by another photographer after two failed (I say failed, try actually purchasing and then having to send back as faulty..) attempts to purchase a Pentax 67 body on eBay from sellers in Japan. I ended up paying less than one of the Japanese imports I had to send back, so even better. The service was really friendly and super fast delivery too and I am now the proud owner of the 67 and can't wait to use it! I recommend Ffordes to any photographers and I will be… Read Full Review

“Low Point to Very High Point”

Written on: 15/01/2021 by aqArcher150 (1 review written)

Having searched high and lo for a transmitter for my Canon 5D MkIII DSLR to wirelessly optically fire a Canon 430EX0II Speedlite across the usual places on the Net, with a variety of price levels, I unexpectedly came across Ffordes Photographic with a cracking price. Once I had established it was in fact a UK-based dealer unlike my last camera equipment buy from Hong Kong-based website pretending to operate from the UK that took over a month to be delivered, with no means of tracking it, I… Read Full Review
