This is a Canon Pro shop with a deservedly good reputation. I bought my 7D here for a very reasonable price after leaving the dodgey import shop Microglobe which is just around the corner. The staff are old school old guys that know their stuff and this is really a shop for photographers rather than a place to pick up a point and shoot.
The manager, Robin is very helpful and you can tell from the talk in the shop that a lot of the people in here are regular customers. I have absolutely no reservation in recommending this place. It would get five stars if they carried a better selection of tripods/heads rather than a very limited selection of the ubiquitous Manfrotto range.
Amazing place. Loads of old cameras, camera stuff and general camera accessories, apparently York Cameras specialise in Canon. It's all UK stock - no imports, second hand stuff, etc.
Cleary, these folks are real camera experts, so they know what they're on about. Bit of an old man kinda vibe which put me off going in. But if you know your camera stuff, they'll be good to talk to, even just for practical advice. Novices beware, know your stuff and you'll have a ball. Come in showing your newness to the scene and you'll leave blushing...
Run by two old guys, this shop stocks both second hand film and digital cameras. I bought a used Bronica here and the customer service was excelllent. They have a real knowledge of photography and I have been back since just to browse. Updated: 07/02/2013
I returned to buy a new Canon DSLR that was in perfect condition and boxed. I was given ample time to try out the camera and chatted to the two guys whilst they waited. Their presence on the high street is even more significant given Jessops recent closure and anyone with an interest in photography owes them a visit. Good service backed up by two guys who know what they're doing.
