“Satisfied customer”

Written on: 03/02/2018 by 30Larkin (1 review written)

I love dealing with Ffordes, I can not count how many cameras and lenses I have purchased from them over the years. I have never had a bad deal and, like some of the best American dealers, they give a generous assessment of condition. Today I received a camera and lens at an excellent price and although classified as E++ I could not tell them from Mint. Always speedy delivery and well wrapped.Well done Ffordes… Read Full Review

“Superb service and high quality”

Written on: 22/01/2018 by Piggie (1 review written)

I recently purchased a Canon 30D from Ffordes - my first digital SLR. The service was outstanding. The camera and the accessories that came with it looked brand new. The items were exceptionally well packed and I received the order the next day despite the fact that it was coming from north of Inverness. I will certainly buy from them again and have no hesitation in recommending them as a top quality company… Read Full Review

“Excellent service once again ”

Written on: 18/01/2018 by AE2018 (1 review written)

A few weeks ago I purchased a Fujifilm lens that was subject to Black Friday double cashback. My problem came when I tried to find the relevant website to make the claim. After many failed attempts. I contacted Ffordes about the issue and shortly after received an email which provided a link to Fujifilms' claim form. That claim has now been validated. Many thanks for the after sales support. I must add that I have been a Ffordes' customer for many years and always been happy with their service… Read Full Review

Christmas comes but twice a year, well it does when you buy from Ffordes. My leica x2 which was purchased used, along with a seperate used viewfinder was delivered to me on the day it was meant to be. It was superbly packaged. You know how you go to bed and dream about the condition in advance, well my dream came true when it arrived, it was in impecable condition, so the experience of my first purchase has instilled a sense of trust in purchasing from Ffordes in the future, i know what to… Read Full Review

“Superb service”

Written on: 18/12/2017 by JohnJ100 (1 review written)

I placed a range of Hasselblad equipment with Ffordes to sell on commission. Every stage of the process was just great. In a matter of a few months they achieved everything they said they would when we first made contact. I was very impressed with the way they helped me to get a fair price for the various items of equipment. In fact, the sale prices they quoted at the start of the process and subsequently achieved were far better than those quoted by any of the other companies I contacted. I… Read Full Review

“Superlative service from Ffordes”

Written on: 15/12/2017 by charlesdamorgan (1 review written)

I ordered a lens from Ffordes on Thursday morning, in the full knowledge it might be delayed because of bad weather (that they informed me about). It arrived, from the northern Highlands of Scotland within 24 hours of me ordering. The lens was in impeccable condition and reasonably priced. Frankly this is exceptional service and I can't recommend Ffordes highly enough… Read Full Review

“Sale of Bronica Equipment”

Written on: 06/12/2017 by Keithk56 (1 review written)

Found my self in the position that my Nikon D80 had developed a fault that was uneconomical to have repaired. I decided that due to the fact I wasn't using my Bronica ETRS to it's full potential and I needed a new Nikon I approach Ffords to sell the equipment for me. After discussing the details they arranged to have the equipment collected and then tested before putting on their website. They have now completed the sale of the various pieces and all monies received. All in all an excellent… Read Full Review

“Great service and price”

Written on: 04/12/2017 by domtomlondon (1 review written)

I'm a big fan of legacy lenses for my Fuji X-E2, especially Zuiko OM lenses as they are very compact and quite sharp. So when I wanted to trade in my 24mm f2.8 I searched around and got a great trade in price for my old lens. I packaged it up and sent it via signed for royal mail. But two weeks later and ffordes still had not received it. I also lost my receipt with the tracking number so I was sure it was lost forever. I still ended up picking up a Zuiko 28mm f2 from Ffordes. And it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2017 by doanh (1 review written)

This is an update to my initial review in which I gave Ffordes 1 star due to a dispute over the condition of a camera I purchased. 
I have been using Ffordes for around 2 years and have enjoyed a good service up until the incident. 
Ffordes intervened and was understanding and quickly resolved the matter. Thank you. 
My change in rating reflects the service and customer care that he has provided. 
It is good to know that Ffordes has good people like him working there.

“New and Used purchase - LF Camera and Scanner”

Written on: 15/11/2017 by Lawrence1990 (1 review written)

I was in the market for a large format camera. I called Ffordes and spoke to a very helpful and knowledgeable man who guided me to a Shen Hao camera as well as a number of other accessories. The person I dealt with answered all my questions and appreciated my lack of knowledge and at no time did I feel awkward. The person I dealt with and Ffords were very helpful and I received the items the following day. In addition I got some film and a used scanner. I would definitely return as a customer… Read Full Review

Ffordes have sold three lots of cameras for me over the last two years. They have managed to sell every item I sent to them at the best possible price, always with friendly and helpful advice.

“Two successful sales”

Written on: 26/10/2017 by Treyt31 (1 review written)

I wanted to sell a couple of underused prime lenses to fund the purchase of a rather special photobook. I was recommended ffordes by a fellow photographer. Contact was easy and I was quickly able to talk to someone about the various options for getting the lenses to them. I was offered what I thought were good prices, and after three months both lenses had been sold and I had received the money. I was pleased with this timing as had the sale been quick I would have thought - "underpriced", and… Read Full Review

“Selling 5x4 equipment”

Written on: 26/10/2017 by DPearc (1 review written)

I sent various items of 5x4 equipment for Ffordes to sell through their used department and have been hugely impressed with their service. They were extremely knowledgable, helpful, and very professional. True, one or of the more obscure items took a little while to sell but the main equipment sold very quickly at prices they previously agreed with me. They were excellent at sending cheques to me as and when things sold. Every item was itemised and I never had to chase them either for money or… Read Full Review
