“Ffodes Exceed Expectations”

Written on: 25/05/2018 by JimForr (1 review written)

I was recommended to Ffordes by another family member and asked them to sell on a commission basis my Nikon 5200 3 lenses and a flash gun. This was towards the end of March this year and before the end of May all five items were sold and the money received. I liked the fact they knew exactly what price was achievable for each item and set that out in writing at the start. They achieved exactly what they said they would in a pretty short timescale. Their commission was very reasonable and… Read Full Review

“300mm F2.8 VR11 Nikon Lens”

Written on: 16/04/2018 by KevinPB (1 review written)

I have now purchased two lenses from Ffordes now,the 300mm F2.8 VR11 and the last year the 500mm F4 VR11. I have to say that Ffordes rating of the lenses is excellent , and in both cases the lenses appear to have seen very little use which I was obviously delighted about. It's litterally like having a new lens on the front of my camera's. Best regards to you all. … Read Full Review

“Great service all the time”

Written on: 16/04/2018 by janourda (1 review written)

Great service, fast response all the time. Each product bought off ffordes was in great shape (used stuff), sometimes even better as described. Reasonably priced items, as well as postage charges. One of the best online shop with used camera gear in Europe in my opinion. A lot of interesting , sometimes rare stuff available here. Highly recommended store, never got any problems with!… Read Full Review

“Sale of Large Format Lenses”

Written on: 08/04/2018 by Thompson385 (1 review written)

I had already sold my Ebony to a colleague and was left with the lenses as they already had their own. I tried a couple of specialist sites - LF gear is certainly specialist these day. I went the commission sale route - a great experience. All transactions and notifications handled timely and professionally - I was never left wondering what the state of play was. The commission rate is good - I was happy with the prices offered, very competitive and indeed that's what popped into my bank… Read Full Review

“A first class experience for near and far”

Written on: 12/03/2018 by ossieh (1 review written)

I am lucky enough to live near Fffordes ( and be able to drool over the over the cases of fantastic equipment of all ages, makes and prices) so recommend personal service if at all possible but friends have equally good experience of the on line service. I have sold cameras, lenses and a bag through Ffordes and have been absolutely delighted with the way that they have kept me updated on the proress of the sales and the prices achieved. I also bought my replacement camera and lenses from… Read Full Review

“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
