Hi Just a quick line to let you know my camera arrived this morning, ordered Thursday delivered Monday morning; very very speedy delivery and a very very happy customer. I have until now been very wary of “grey imports,” but not anymore, I’m sure I’ll be back soon to order a lens and 1.4 iii teleconvertor. Thank you for the service and thank you for the savings.
My third camera from CC arrived this morning Wednesday 9am, only ordered last Friday, now that IS service. Can't fault the communication, excellent service from David who answered my pestering e-mails very professionally. Upto date tracking information right from the point of departure to my front door. Can't beat the price and when using my loyalty points and extra discount for paying by BACS an unbeatable price for a top notch camera, saved £600 on high street extortionate prices. I will certainly be back when I want to upgrade or just add some extra kit to my camera bag. Thanks again David and all at CC. George Ford County Durham
After reading previous reviewers comments and speaking to David at C.C I was very happy to purchase my 7d Mk2 from them. It was a seamless transaction all import duties taken care of by C.C. It comes with the wireless adapter WE-1 included and the battery charger was supplied with an asian cable with a UK suitable adapter. No problem. A point to note about downloading images using the supplied USB cable, You will not be able to get it to connect to the PC (I have A MacBook ) with the WE-1 Card inserted in the camera even if wifi is disabled. Took me a long time to solve this issue. In short great service . extremely pleased, just need to save up for the 100-400mm lens which i will have no hesitation in purchasing from Cotswold Cameras.

This is my 2nd major camera purchase from Cotswold Cameras, and again their service has been 100% impeccable. It is refreshing and totally reassuring to deal with people in the UK who respond quickly to emails and your requests. We are all aware of other online companies offering cheap photographic equipment, and purport to be UK based when we know they are not and you are left "sweating" if you place an order online as to if or when you might receive the goods. No problems with Cotswold they are !00% reliable and you can order with confidence,. I hope to order again from them shortly!
Hi David, just found some time to add my comments about this super bit of kit. It still amazes me how different the results are from most other FX Nikons. set mine up with a 20mm f1.8 prime for landscape/Interiors stuff and the metering was right on the money, so well pleased and thanks for the great service, thanks again
I have used this company in the past and once again had no hesitation in ordering from them again.I purchased a Nikon D810 ordering was easy and straightforward and the item arrived early one morning securely packaged within the stated delivery period.
Recommended by a friend, I've ordered from Cotswold twice now and both times my experience has been 100% positive. This time i ordered the new Canon 6Dmk 2 which arrived promptly as promised within 4-6 working days - ordered Friday delivered following Friday. Super efficient process from start to finish. The camera is excellent, as is the Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS II USM lens I've had now for over two years which has been faultless and is a joy to use. I have no hesitation in recommending Cotswold Cameras. Thank you once again.
OUTSTANDING SERVICE AND COMMITMENT TO CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. I was very apprehensive about buying this Canon EOS 5d IV with 24mm to 105mm lens. A considerable purchase for me I have to say. However after a number of emails and telephone conversations with various members of the Cotswold team I made the decision to purchase the camera and lens kit. I was informed with all necessary information by email. Shipping in my case was with TNT Express Tracked End to End and only took 4 days from placing the order to arrive. I was emailed a TNT Customs Invoice to be paid before delivery. I paid it and forwarded a copy of the receipt to Cotswold Cameras, they refunded me virtually instantly. The camera arrived doubled boxed with lots of bubble protection in and around it for safety in transit. Absolutely delighted with the camera and lens. This has been a 100% seamless and trouble free transaction.. Highest Recommendations . Thank You.
Love my new camera, it's exactly the same as the one I tried at my local camera shop but I saved over £150. Great service from CC as always. Thanks.
I bought the 80D from Cotswold Cameras and everything went exactly as they said it would. From order to Delivery took 5 days and I tracked the delivery all the way. Great service thanks. I'm just getting used to my new 80d and so far I'm impressed. The new sensor is an improvement over my previous 60d and the video is excellent. I'd highly recommend Cotswold Cameras to anyone who wants to save money on their next camera purchase.
So helpful, I got confused ordering and Sara helped me through the process. Order came in three days. Perfect love my 5ds already. Will be back to Cotswold for a lens in the next couple of weeks. I can recommend this company superb!!!!!
A friend recommended Cotswold Cameras to me after he had a warranty claim for a Canon 5d mk iii quickly resolved. Looking at the price and knowing the 3 year warranty was well supported helped make my choice. The camera is incredible, shows so much detail in the images and handles really well. Overall great camera and service.
Highly recommend. Excellent communication, speed of delivery and camera!
I was a little bit apprehensive about ordering through you but you have not let me down i am totally blown away by your service, i ordered my camera body through you and a lens from a better known importer and guess what the camera was delivered this morning after arriving at stansted just after 6am my lens has only just been approved. So a very big thank you from me to everyone there for an excellent job and i will recommend you to anybody who asks where is a good place to get a camera from Thank you again Andrew price
Brilliant service great price. Very smooth and prompt transaction. Refunded shipping costs as promised with no problem.

An absolutely first class service from Cotswold Cameras! The ordering process for my new Nikon D810 body was very simple and straightforward. Delivery was completed in just a few days and everything arrived in first class order. As a product, the D810 will serve me with first class service and I feel confident that Cotswold Cameras will provide me with any help and assistance if ever it should be required. I will be very happy to use Cotswold cameras again for my future needs. 10 out of 10 for service!
Thank you for providing such an extraordinary service at a time of year when, frankly I expected delays in delivery. I received confirmation of my order from Cotswold Cameras by return and shortly after, notification of a Fedex tracking number. Fedex collected the D810 from Hong Kong at 3am on Monday 21st December, it was in Paris on the morning of the 22nd and arrived at Stansted that evening having cleared customs earlier that day. Fedex notified me that it would be delivered on Wednesday at 12 noon and true to their word it arrived almost bang on time at 12.08. Five days in total, exemplary service. The camera was well packed and complete with UK plugs and an English manual, what more could I ask for. Many thanks to you and the team, I now look forward to a Christmas playing with the new beast.
I had been looking for a Sony A77II, as an upgrade to my A77, for a while. A77II is a great camera with its fantastic 79 point auto focus coverage, certainly a step up from the previous model. I decided to order from Cotswold Cameras, who were displaying a very competitive internet price, after reading their excellent reviews. The whole order process was quick and easy with a quick acknowledgement and I was able to track the consignment from start to finish through Fedex. It arrived well within the stated delivery time, well packaged and in first class condition. A few days later I received an invoice for a small amount from Fedex, which I paid by card, and true to their word Cotswold refunded the amount to my Paypal account on their next Monday payment run. One very happy customer and will certainly purchase again and recommend to others considering buying new gear. Les
Sold Nikon DSLR system to buy OMD E M1 with 12-40 lens. Much smaller camera and easier to carry around. Picture quality as good as my old Nikon system and equals the Canon EOS 5D Mk iii my wife owns. Menu system easy to understand and the controls fall easily to hand. Upcoming firmware version 4 will add further to this very versatile camera. Recommended.

After extensive research online i decided to buy my D610 from Cotswold Cameras. This camera has been absolutely fantastic and taken my photography to the next level! It has 24.3 megapixels which, for me and i think many others, more than enough. The body is very comfortable to handle and weather sealed. It is my first full frame camera and i'm particularly impressed with the shutter speed and focusing options.
Excellent lens, I use it as my only Macro lens, its clarity is perfect, the lens is a true addition to my lens collecyion
Great camera and great service. Camera arrived promptly and I had no problems at all with receiving it. The price for this camera is great and I would recommend this company.
Excellent saving. Delivered in less than 6 days. Absolutely faultless service. Wonderful camera the D750. Highly recommended and will use again without hesitation.
Excellent service. Highly recommended.
Delighted with the camera body - a step up from the previous one that better utilizes the lenses that I have. I chose this as the most fully featured of the crop sensor bodies - fulfills my needs (primarily wildlife) very well. Anything bigger would start to impinge on portability - and I already feel like a packhorse with binoculars, tripod etc. Pleased with price, delivery and service, too. Recommended product and dealer.

I had been considering the purchase of the Nikon D810 as a replacement for my D3 for some time, I carried out all the necessary on-line research regarding the camera specifications etc, and decided to purchase the camera via the grey import route. My decision to order the camera from Cotswold Cameras was greatly influenced by the many positive comments placed in the review section of your website, even though their were more competitive prices elsewhere. I am delighted to confirm that I was not disappointed, with a saving of £766.00 plus the opportunity to sell my Nikon D3 for almost double the trade in value offered by a major high street camera store, the whole enterprise was a total no-briainer, you will shortly be receiving a further order for a Nikon lens I am contemplating the purchase of. Timeline: I placed my order with you on Thursday afternoon, August 20th, and received an almost immediate text confirmation of my order and receipt of payment, along with a Fedex tracking reference number. I tracked the movement of my order with great interest and am very happy to confirm that my camera arrived at 0930 today, August 24th, exactly as ordered, that speed of delivery is nothing short of miraculous, and……. if that wasn’t enough, I received an e-mailed receipt and my 3 year warranty confirmation later the same day.

Done exactly what it says on the tin. Lens arrived 4 days after clicking buy and absolutely no issues whatsoever. Lens (100-400mm mk2) has been thoroughly tested and no problems whatsoever. I will definately be buying from CC again and would recommend to anyone.
I'm very happy with the lens. It's fantastic and really encourages you to learn about the use of lighting to greatly reduce the effects of chromatic aberration you get from this lens wide open. The Bokeh is beautiful and my portraiture and film stills have improved significantly. F2 is slightly soft although after a necessary lens calibration I get sharp images. F2.8 is wonderful. I'd also like to remark on your great customer service from order to delivery. Excellent! I look forward to purchasing from yourselves again in the near future. Charles
I bought a canon EOS 5D mark 3 and lens from Cotswold. The overall cost was almost £500 cheapers than from UK retailer Cotswold kept me informed on where the order was in the system, including a tracking link. The order arrived well packaged and on time. The only thing you do need to be aware of is that the items do not come security sealed. However Cotswold explained this was in order to check the content and add in the Uk power charger. It all made sense. Like others I also received an invoice from the delivery company, FedEx. I emailed it to Cotswold and they arranged for the fee to be credited to my account. Really pleased with the camera and the quality and promptness of the service I received from Cotswold. I would buy from them again and am happy to recommend them
Truly wonderful camera. Great service from Cotswold Cameras.
