    Hi all,

    Has anyone used Clifton Cameras or Digital Depot in the UK to purchase cameras? I am hoping to get a new m43 camera from them but just wanted to get some personal feedback from you all if you had experienced them.

    Cheers

    I've used Clifton in the past. Only a single purchase, but I was very happy with the transaction. Not had to return anything, so no visibility of their after sales.

    I've used Clifton once, but only via an online order so I can't comment on their customer service. Got the camera next day though, and at an excellent price, so I was happy :)

    Excellent! thanks for those positive feedback and assurance!
    I actually just made pre-order on m43 camera! after having reviewed their reputations and actually having spoken to them over the phone....
    appears to be clued on and know what they are talking about!

    just have to hope it arrives when it is finally announced and have it delivered to me...!!!

    i initially had discussed with digital depot to order one through but was not able to find as many reviews... nor track record (not trying to sound negative) as i am sure they are good but for my own sanity and assurance, i have decided to go with ones that have been given good reviews by others to date....

    more feedback would be much appreciated!!

    Nothing beats a bricks and mortar and I am lucky that I have a good one close, but I used Clifton once for a 'difficult to find' item and they were first class.

    Talking of Bricks and Mortar - I would highly recommend SRS Microsystems in Watford - awesome service.

    thanks a lot for your comments so far, it is relieving to know that Clifton Cameras is a good and reliable outfit!
    I was initially looking at purchasing it from either Park or WEX but Clifton and Digital Depot was offering a better deal than the others... and hence went with Clifton...
    If I lived near by, I would have ordered and gone there to pick it up directly but it is not possible nor is the model I have got is out yet!! so just have to wait for it to be delivered in due course!
