As Jon States I was a bit sceptical about spending a lot of money from a non uk High Street Supplier . Before purchase I had some questions, Sent an E Mail and within a couple of days my questions had been answered to my satisfaction. 7DMk2 order placed. E mail arrived confirming purchase and then a tracking number , Now its fascinating to see your parcel start from a destination in Hong kong and travel the world and land on your doorstep all withing 4 days . Few days later E Mail from Fed Express to Pay Import Tax . I paid that online to Fed Express , sent a copy to cotswold camera and true to their word that was tax was then paid back into my account . So to date service top notch , Camera well its a step up from the 7D , a bit complicated but once you get your head around the multitude of focusing /tracking options its a great piece of kit . Great service so far lets see if the camera behaves or develops a fault, I have great faith that Cotswold Cameras will sort any problems with the three year guarantee that they offer . Ido hope so as I am saving up for the Canon 100-400 Mk2 and this is the first place that I will be looking for a deal .

I have used Cotswold cameras three times now for both canon cameras and lenses. I would highly recommend them. I am very happy with the products and the customer service - friendly staff and very quick responses. I will not hesitate to use them again in future.

The EOS 7D Mkii is a fantastic piece of kit, however it is Cotswold Cameras I am reviewing here. I am very happy with the price I paid. I was very sceptical about buying a high value item as an import. However the customer reviews, the guarantee, and the price persuaded me to take the plunge. What an absolutely fantastic service. Absolutely painless from start to finish. The tracking information is second to none. I spent three geeky days over a weekend following my camera around the world to my door step. It left Hong Kong on the Friday, I tracked it through Hong Kong, Japan, France and then the UK. It arrived at 9:30 am on the Following Monday. As is mentioned in other reviews I received a bill from FedEx a few weeks later. I emailed a photo of the invoice and I was reimbursed straight away with no questions or hassle. I do not have a scanner so I took a picture of the invoice with my mobile and emailed that with no problems what so ever! People if you are hesitating buying from Cotswold Cameras, fear not. The service is fantastic and so is the price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone, and I would definitely purchase from them again without hesitation.

This is a superb piece of kit. Much to learn compared with my old Sony, I'm sure that only a few of the endless/excellent possibilities will be used? Cotswold Cameras provide an excellent service, with prompt/clear replies to my queries, I will use them again.
Reviewer: Steve Broadstairs
First of all, this camera is a fantastic piece of kit. Having had the original 7D, the Mark II version is a real step up in performance. Secondly, the service from Cotswold Cameras is exemplary. I ordered the camera late on a Monday, and it arrived early on Friday. The journey was fully trackable on the FedEx website. Queries were answered quickly and the invoice from FedEx reimbursed as promised without any hassle. All this, and massive savings over UK prices, with a free 3 year warranty thrown in!
Reviewer: Ian Ground Newcastle
Absolutely everything with my purchase went through smoothly exactly as promised. Prompt clear communications throughout and excellent delivery tracking gave me reassurance that I had made the right choice with this company. Would use again. Many thanks Cotswold Cameras.
Reviewer: Chris Denning Nottingham
I was initially cautious about using Cotswolds Cameras because I had seen discussion forums questioning their legitimacy. However, the reviewers belittling CC never seemed to have bought anything, while the positive reviews were from customers. So I decided I would try. I bought a canon 7Dm2 and 100-400mm m2. I ordered 10pm and it was being processed the next morning. I was told delivery would take up to 6 days but it was only 4 and I had automated email alerts as the package travelled from Hong Kong, though Europe to the UK. The camera and lens are both perfect - and that's from someone hard to please! CC did say I may receive an invoice from FedEx around 2 weeks later. I did, for about £45. The instructions were to send CC so they can reimburse. Again, this was done the next day. In short, CC provided a superb service and lived up to their word every step of the way. I would recommend them completely, and the camera - lens combination I now have is superb.

My Canon 7d mk ii was purchased in January it has proved to be a brilliant camera mainly used for wildlife and landscapes. I am pleased to confirm that I have found the service provided by your company to be excellent and your prices very competitive and would not hesitate in recommending your company or of purchasing from you in the future.
Reviewer: Martin Thomas Cheltenham
Requested on Sunday arrived on Thursday great service. Given information as to what was happening throughout. Still getting to grips with my new 7D Mark 2 Body no problems as yet. Thank you to Cotswold Cameras.
Reviewer: Trevor Guy West Sussex
I had reservations about using Cotswold Cameras for purchasing this camera as it was priced way below the well known U.K. retailers. However, having done my research and read about the experience of other customers I decided to entrust my hard earnt cash to this unknown (to me) company to supply this superb camera. The delivery experience was amazing as I tracked its rapid progress from Hong Kong to my doorstep and within 4 days it was in my hands. Amazing service, amazing speed of delivery. I decided to order another piece of equipment straight away .I would certainly recommend this supplier!
Reviewer: P Wilson Lancashire UK
excellent service from Cotswold Cameras, very pleased with Canon 7d mk2 recommended CC. to friend who also purchased one. Received invoice from Fedex which was dealt with right away on sending e/mail with details to the team at CC. Thank you again for your excellent service.
Reviewer: Colin Matthew Brentwood
Camera was delivered quickly, havent used it much yet, first test was very positive. Did get a bill from fedex, but Cotswold Camera sorted that out quickly, would definately use them again - thank you.
Reviewer: Chris Suffolk
I would not hesitate to use Cotswold Cameras (CC) again! I bought a 7DII and a 17-40 F4 and as others have noted had the usual concerns - a few email exchanges to confirm details and I went for it. No problems at all - I followed the parcel from Hong Kong to the door and all was as described and is working well. After the parcel arrived I received an invoice from Fed Ex, I contacted CC and they responded quickly to explain that the price is definitely the web site price and refunded me directly. Very good customer service. The 7DII is a revelation and the F4 superb I could not be happier with them. There is a steep learning curve with the new focussing system but Canon have recognised that with tutorials to help us through them. Full marks to CC and Canon!

Really wanted the Canon 7d mk2, but not really wanted to pay the £1599.00 price tag,looked on the Net,and saw the likes of SLR Hut & Simply Electronics,both really cheap, read the reviews and found out why, KEEP WELL CLEAR,then found Cotswold Cameras, based in England,thats a good start, read the reviews,so far so good,but still to be on safe side paid by Pay Pal,bit of back up if required, But transaction was better than clockwork,Camera tracked from start to finish, from Hong Kong, calling at France, and Landing at Stanstead, ordered it on Saturday 27 December, should have arrived at my address on Tuesday 6 January, actually arrived at 06.45 a day earlier on Monday 5th, reckon it would have been earlier if it hadn't been for the new year holiday,opened the package and it could have been dropped off the Shard and it wouldn't have suffered any damage,took 5 minutes to remove the Bubble wrap, only problem was they had sent it with a Asian Battery Charger, thought see what happens now, Emailed David at Cotswold Cameras, and virtually straight away received a very Apologetic reply and problem sorted there and then,a real gentleman no messing, no excuses,job done, there is a 3 year warranty included, elsewhere you have to pay separately for that,in short this company is 100% reliable, i will definately be using them again.used Camera last weekend and it's perfect

Ordered canon 7d mk II on Monday and arrived Friday and was kept up dated all the time. 10 days after receiving camera received an invoice from FedEx for import duty emailed Cotswold cameras and was sorted within 6 hours. Cannot fault the company they were brilliant.
Reviewer: Sean Powell Market Drayton, Shropshire

Reviewer: Mike Seamons Sussex

Reviewer: Trish Wales
Brought the camera for my son for Christmas he had canon 20d for years and is a brilliant photographer. The focus on this camera is superb in fact excellent. Can't praise Cotswold Cameras enough for their service and will definitely order from them again. My sons first job on getting the camera was to take a photo of a lady on her 100th birthday. Family haven't seen photo yet but sure they'll be delighted.

Before the review, fascinating to follow the cameras travels from Hong Kong, Japan, France then exotic Stanstead to Stoke and then Chorley. Parcel arrived in good external condition. Cracked the packaging and the camera worked as expected. My old camera is a 50D - some 6 years old and wonderful, so I thought, for action and people. The 7Dk2 is all the reviews say it is. At ISO 6400 no real sign of colour noise thought luminance noise is there - tweak in Adobe RAW editor. The point is compared to the 50D even at these high ISOs, the actual quality/lack of softening of the edges, is amazing. On the 50D at ISO 3200, the camera back review would be a chicken pox of coloured spots - not with this body. Noise defaults settings are being used straight out of the box. Plenty of menus to tweak especially the AF menus for Servo focusing. Lots of focus points and combinations of to play with. Built in B setting times up to hours and built in sequence shooting - so no external device needed. Coupled with L series lenses, some of my crops - and I like to crop hard on sports shots,look spectacular even at A3 prints - I think spectacular. Many of the menus are straight from the 5Dmk3 like the AF menus for moving objects. Very impressed especially for the price and the 3 years parts & labour guarantee. Yes, they use their own repair specialists but then so do my very good local photo shop, WIlkinsons up here in the North West. At the time of posting this, the price has dropped £20. Bargain. Steve

I'd just like to reiterate what many reviewers before me have said. I deliberated on buying from Cotswold Cameras because (as far as I'm aware) they don't have a physical UK shop and are internet based only. I was worried about my purchase being delayed or going missing in transit, the possibilty of paying import duty and what would happen if the goods were faulty or damaged on arrival. All perfectly reasonable concerns, however I needn't have worried. My shipment arrived in good time and in perfect condition. Communication was excellent throughout. Having spoken on the phone and emailed C.C. with some general queries I feel secure in the knowledge that, should a fault arise within the warranty period, Cotswold Cameras will take care of it (and within the UK) just as well as any highstreet retailer would. If you don't require a VAT receipt then I can't see why you wouldn't purchase through these guys and save yourself a significant amount of money. I think they provide a fantastic service.
Reviewer: Ron Baber
Took delivery of my 7d Mk ii yesterday lunchtime (Monday) having ordered it the previous Thursday at 5.00pm. Absolutely delighted with the service you have provided, and the camera? – well it’s a beast no other way of putting it! Solid build (heavier than my previous 600d), and full of things to play with. If you’ve had a Canon before it’s easy to get this one into use and the results are cracking. Just need a back-up battery now! Many thanks to Cotswold Cameras, I was a bit dubious but the service is excellent and hopefully the product will prove to be also. Cheers!

I've received my 7D Mark II yesterday and being previous owner of 7D and after reading so many reviews, I was extatic last 36 hours :-) ... Mark II is far better with many additions and improvements over 7D. I will NOT write technical stuff here, as there are many reviews, technical stuff to read around, join Facebook Canon 7D Mark II group, etc ... but just try to convince people here to use Cotswold Cameras, as I've read a few people that were questioning 'low prices'?! I can reassure you that only YOU can save some momey with them, as they try to please you with those prices, but behing those prices there is a huge knowledge in photography that many retailers haven't got, but charge much more for the very same products. I've used to buy stuff in Hong Kong and Singapore during my 10 sailing years around the World, and I've NEVER EVER had any problems with technology I bought there (cameras, lenses, music keyboards, guitars, microphones, tape recorders, TVs, radios, walkmans, Hi-fi units, etc). I will definitelly shop in a future with Cotswold Cameras, who have excellent customer services and will help you with ANY question regarding photography, if you need it. They keep you update all the way about your order which is very reassuring. Just with this order of 7D Mark II and Canon EF 70-200 f2.8 lens, I've saved enough to buy another lens :-) Keep doing good work Cotswold Cameras :-)
