OUR REVIEWS

 
 

 

Kenneth Green - Manchester Urbanscapes 17th June 2017
 
I thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with David. He was prepared to help at any level of learning. My own camera skills are reasonable, but the local knowledge coupled with the techniques David introduced helped me think outside the box. The whole day was undertaken at a relaxed pace yet we covered a lot of ground, whilst enjoying the company of other attendees.

Went into the shop on Friday 5th July to buy a robust camera for a 6 yr old! We were given excellent advice, very detailed and helpful, we were able to examine the camera recommended and have a sensible discussion with the staff. An added bonus was to come home and find the same camera on Amazon at a higher price. However we very much valued being able to make our purchase knowing what we were buying instead of buying online "in the dark". An excellent shop with well informed staff.

We were visiting our cousin, who whilst walking, suggested this shop as I am into my cameras. Initially we peeped inside after my wife suggested to price up a lens I am after for Christmas. We were met by two very friendly staff who acknowledged our presence and gave me the information needed. After a quick think we decided to buy the lens, but also I asked would there be a possibility of having my sensor cleaned? Very short notice, but they happily obliged. 40 minutes later I returned and was greeted with, given that you have bought a lens, the sensor clean is on the house..Wow! Thank you. I was after a tripod for some time and was going to wait, but because of the way I was dealt with, I decided to buy a new tripod. This is how a rapport is made, from a simple hello, to a major purchase, a bit of service and another purchase. Not to mention a glowing review as to why, if you own a camera and want to add to your equipment, I believe this shop should be in your sights. BE PROUD CHESTER, you have a FIVE STAR Camera shop here. Thank you again guys for your help..

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Went in looking for a DSLR, not only did they advise me on the pros and cons of each camera but after I'd decided on which camera I wanted, they also put together a package to suit my needs (extra battery, case etc) and gave me quite a hefty discount! I went away feeling happy that I'd got the right camera for my needs and at a very good price (even cheaper than the internet!!)

I went in to find out about a micro 4/3 camera.
The first thing I do when I go to a new shop is ask some questions that i know the answer to (fed up of sales people that just sprout the sales pitch). The people in the shop are very knowledgeable.
The advice was very good and honest. They suggested other makes to the one I was looking at and had them in for me to compare.
I was so impressed with the service that I bought the camera and many lenses to go with it. I will def go back.
This is a shop as they used to be
Service and quality.
