I will consider 42ndStreet Photo my number one store for my future camera shopping!

My old camera failed last week, which forced me to buy a new one.  As I started searching locally the cameras I found were either not what I was looking for or priced way too high.  I then turned to online shopping but quickly learned than many ...

Been buying from 42nd for years. There's now a lot of competition out there but they still have the edge. There range of goods is all-embracing; they know what they're talking about; the service is faultless - and the price is right! Bottom line is 42 ...

Why use 42nd Street Photo when there are better stores, prices and service available elsewhere?

by , Jul 7, 2004 Rated a Helpful Review
Let me start by saying I had been warned to not use 42nd Street Photo by various other online reviews, but I didn't listen. Oh how I regret that now!! I thought that it would be worth saving a few bucks, and that I could put up with whatever they threw ...
