    Most people buy camera equipment here. I recently found out you can rent the latest gear to test it out. Just go to the 6th floor.

    Usually no to very short line for customer service returns/exchanges around 12!

    The guys here are way nicer than B&H photo, they're super helpful even if they don't have a particular item. Prices are kind of hard to beat and the store is not too difficult to get to.

    Get a ticket to speak with a representative.

    Photo printing service pickup is all the way in the back.

    The ticketing system is a little absurd but efficient in its own way. If you need film, they have a great selection; just know what you're going to get before you queue up.

    Miguel de Leon · October 10, 2014
  • Jeff P.

    Don't waste time: get a service ticket when you walk in from a salesperson near the lil touch screen thing.

    Jeff Petriello · September 4, 2014
  • Ryan W.

    One of the best camera stores in the city plus all sorts of other gadgets. Great service too and knowledgable staff.

    Having a pro services account has made all the difference. Ray Garcia has never let us down.

    If your already here, keep your money in your wallet, back away and leave! Go to Best Buy instead at least you know they'll be there in 10 years!

    Great place for bait and switch

    HORRID customer service- incompetent/misinformed employees & management. All of whom do not know their own policies & do nothing to help. Be prepared to fight if something goes wrong w. your purchase.

    Don't go here near closing time on a Friday. You will get pushed out.

    Ask for William, the nicest, most helpful salesperson in the Universe.

    Kristin Booker · April 25, 2014

    Make sure to call before you waste your time going, their website does not accurately reflect product availability!

    The check-in gift is a tote bag or a hat. What self-respecting Brooklyn photographer would sport an Adorama cap? Me.

    Tatiana Breslow · July 18, 2013

    Great metallic prints

    I recently purchased a new Asus Laptop from Adorama. The unit arrived in a defective state and would not work. Adorama will not exchange the unit. I discourage anyone from using Adorama for computers.

    Muy buen servicio!!

    They don't service cameras, but they recommend Panorama on West 30th or Photo Tech on East 13th.

    Closer to campus than others, but be advised: they do NOT offer student discounts.

    Annelise · December 10, 2012
  • Elyssa R.

    Go to BH, Calumet or Fotocare before I ever come here again. Customer service can't help you in store unless you speak to the shipping dep before hand about an order that had shipped & want to return

    Elyssa Respaut · December 3, 2012

    Just got me a new Adorama bag w Foursquare !

    These guys can do know wrong. Amazing service friendly and they really know their stuff

  • Katherine R.

    I've never seen so many employees! I was in and out with what I needed in less than 10 minutes!

    If a sales person offers you a discount or free item during your bargaining, make sure they actually take it off at the register. They're extremely shady this way.

    Ben Kessler (@kessler) · April 27, 2012

    Once you have done business with the Adorama, you learn quickly that they are reliable & trustworthy. They put the customer first. Adorama should be on your to do list when in New York. · April 22, 2012

  • Jimmy Z.

    One of the best places to buy a high-end DSLR camera, but they certainly are not hiring the most fuzzy, warm sales reps here!

    Jimmy Zhu · March 29, 2012
  • Philip R.

    If you're picking up rental equipment and have a vehicle with you, call Adorama and ask for curbside pickup/drop-off to avoid parking tickets. They'll bring equipment downstairs & load your vehicle.

    Conveniently located camera super-store that has everything you could want. However, the staff and customer service leave something to be desired.
