Purchase date was April 2015. Been using online buying for far too many years. As a customer experience this was as good as it gets. Fast, professional and helpful advise before and during order/deliver proccess. My 5D3 arrived in perfect condition after a great order tracking couple of days. Given that this was a Hong Kong supplied item I was especially pleased and surprised to find a "proper" english language full spec manual and a "proper" UK molded plug on the charging lead. No silly adapters to be fit. Well done Cotswolds for that. A quality buying experience and one I would have no hesitation in repeating and recomending. I also had a Fedex import invoice and it also was dealt with with no drama. I have no connections with the company and this is an unsolicited endorsement. Thank you, got to go take some images :)

I really don't need to review the camera if you are looking at cameras of this ilk you know what you are buying - a superb piece of equipment. One thing I will say the buying experience with Cotswold Cameras was excellent and their follow up service made my experience one I would highly recommend and I will definitely use again. Yes it is an import and that worried me a little but the way the purchase was handled and the promises kept means I can only say save yourself a lot of money and do out worry you are dealing with a highly professional business.

Super service and I had email contact with David who gave me sound advice, which I appreciated. Will definitely use again and have already recommended.

I looked around for a long time for a Canon 5d mkiii body at a reasonable price , I found Cotswold cameras to be the cheapest by far and placed my order . The service is excellent , the camera came with UK manual and plug and the small import tax was refunded instantly . Buy with confidence !

Simply outstanding service - a model for how to provide an excellent online experience with superb customer service for excellent camera products at extraordinary value. I have used Canon cameras for years. My digital SLR camera succession has been 40D, 50D and 7D. I have long coveted the 'full frame' sensor Canon 5D Mk III with its solid track record and low light capabilities, but couldn't justify the outlay. Although Canon has announced the successor cameras I figured Cotswold's great value offer would get me my preferred camera with years of potential service remaining along with the reassurance of a 3 year guarantee. The ordering process was simple and straightforward, as it should be. I ordered on a Saturday night and paid by bank transfer. I got an immediate acknowledgement of my order. On Monday morning I was sent a FedEx tracking number and I tracked the camera package from Hong Kong which arrived on Friday morning; exactly 6 days. A week later Fedex invoiced me for carriage and customs which I paid and then sent copies of the invoice to Cotswold Cameras who immediately refunded the amount - all by prompt and courteous e-mail. The camera is everything and more that I expected it to be but the purchasing experience has made it even more enjoyable. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Cotswold Cameras and I fully intend to use them again in the future.

Great Service. Cotswold Cameras kept me informed of the status of my order throughout. The camera is fantastic. I would certainly use Cotswold Camera's again.

Reviewer: Kevin Keenan St Albans   5 Stars
Quite simply they did exactly what they promised to do; delivery was 'on the button' and I have a new 5D which has already been to India and captured some superb memories. Queries are all email based so do not expect one to one telephone calls.

We all moan at poor service, but don't seem to celebrate good service enough. This was my first dealing with Cotswold Cameras. Had my reservations as the price was so good etc etc. I have to say they were totally unfounded. My camera arrived bang on time and it is fabulous. Tracked it every inch of the way(Sad I know). Every e mail has been answered promptly and efficiently. When my plastic has cooled down a bit I will be purchasing from them again. I would unreservedly recommend Cotswold Cameras for your next purchase.of camera equipment.

I ordered a camera body and lens together and they arrived by Fedex within a few days, exactly to UK specification - plugs, printed manual, the lot. I emailed a query before placing my order and it was responded to immediately. I am very pleased with the service from Cotswold Cameras and have saved myself a considerable amount of money. I never normally go out of my way to write reviews, but I felt it was worth posting a similar review to this on an online Camera forum - 5/5!

Reviewer: Kay Ransom Cirencester   5 Stars
Great camera, deals with noise well and I like the improvements from the 5Dmkii. The position of the power switch is much better, it’s great having a dedicated filming button too. The auto focus is possibly more complex than it needs to be, having read the 45 pages on auto focus in the manual, there’s certainly a lot to practise, however in the long run I’m sure it’ll be great. I bought the camera from Cotswold Cameras, I was unsure of the Asian origin, however one telephone call to David reassured my concerns, as it happened the company was operating out of my home town in England, that sealed the deal for me. There are a lot of companies out there selling cameras, but this one is legit and having made a warranty claim recently (not Cotswold Cameras fault note) I experienced good customer service, my camera was fixed and it didn't cost me a penny.

Dear David & Cotswold Camera’s, Everything that was ordered arrived mid-day on Thursday and I am extremely happy with the prompt service and the fact that all the main items and minor accessories were in the package. I am sorry I didn’t get chance to let you know on the day, but I was travelling on business. I have now charged the battery and tested everything, even the nearly new lenses I had previously bought for my son but didn’t have the camera body to test them on. Everything is perfect, well packaged and to UK spec. As indicated I am so very happy with your service, communication, support and pricing and my son will be when he gets all these items to help him with his Press & Editorial degree course tomorrow (21st Birthday). Thank you & I am sure we will be in touch to purchase more in the future. Very best regards Gary

From the moment I contacted Cotswold Cameras I received excellent customer service. Initially I rang and asked advise about which camera would suite my budget and requirements. The advice was first class and I ordered a Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 Body. The item came within 5 days - very well packaged and in perfect condition. Having used the camera extensively I am very pleased with the purchase and would recommend others to purchase from Cotswold Cameras. They were cheaper than anywhere else I could find this item including ebay and Amazon.

Great camera, great price and most importantly great service. Thanks

I was a little wary at first of buying from an online shop having had a few bad experiences before but I contacted Cotswold Cameras to ask a few questions and they responded via email within a couple of hours. Sarah was very helpful and put my mind at ease as she explained the process. The camera (which is an incredible piece of kit) arrived within 3 days and as far as I could tell was exactly the same as the one I handled in my local camera shop before. 2 weeks after my camera arrived I got a bill from FedEx for about £30 so I got in touch with Cotswold Cameras and they told me to email them the invoice. Within 1 hour they had refunded the money back to me. Based on this experience I would definitely order again as I saved hundreds of pounds on the UK retail price and the customer service has been efficient and responsive. It's nice to deal with a company who treat you like a person rather than just an order number for a change. Now I just can't wait to get out and use my camera more.
