View Full Version : Reliable Online Retailers

03-10-10, 02:02 PM

Having recently upgraded to a DSLR, and having a hideous experience with "CameraBox" in doing so (which is still on-going) I am rather wary of using retailers that I've not used before (which is a shame, as I'm sure there are many excellent retailers out there).

I eventually purchased a Nikon D5000 from Jessops (reserved online to collect in-store) and was very pleased with the service and the camera.

Now, I'd like to find some more reliable online suppliers - initially to source the CF-DC2 case for the D5000 (which seems to be rather rare) - but a lot of the reviews I've read of retailers that advertise in the magazines are less-than complimentary.

Do you guys have any recommendations for reliable equipment suppliers?

Many thanks

I've used Warehouse Express (http://www.warehouseexpress.com) many times and never had a problem - other than ordering the wrong model of flash meter (realised on delivery). Contacted them, arranged the return and replacement with the one I meant to order, without any fuss.

Always my first choice. :)
