Machine Mart Ltd

A Huge Stock At The right Price.

Very knowledgeable staff at the Norwich branch and extremely helpful too. A highly recommended store. It's even interesting just having a nose round.

MPB Photographic

Went The Extra Mile

I first came upon MPB Photographic after a recommendation from a professional photographer friend of mine named Terry Lxxxxxxx. I was looking for a Canon 100 -400L to supplement my 24 - 105L which hook up to my 40D. My interests in photography are far ranging and the big zoom was to bring aircraft closer to me.

MPB supplied a "Exc ++ lens and to be honest I couldn't see a mark on it. Matt at MPB assured me the condition rating of the lens was down one step due to a minute blemish on the tripod collar !!!! Wow, that was the epitome of honesty to me.

Time came when I felt my 40D was holding the ability of my lenses back. I needed a fast fps and a better resolution for my aviation photography and something completely different, equestrian eventing. A Canon 7D plus grip was needed. Initially I bought a new one from another supplier. Over 2 weeks went by and though they had debited my bank account, still no camera. I rang them again and again and eventually succeeded in cancelling the whole deal.

My 10 days in Portugal was getting very close and I desparately wanted a 7D in my bag. MPB had a few choices on sale, albeit S/H models. To heck with it, they come with a 6 month warranty so they can't be too bad. I chose one with the phone help from Kat at MPB. It arrived with a BG-E7 grip in LESS THAN 24 HOURS. How good is that?

Absolutely unqualified first class service. I just wish I'd called MPB in the first place. Doah!

On opening the 7D box I found no Canon CD software enclosed. No sooner said, a package arrived the next day containing, not only the CD and instruction manual, but a free copy of the "7D Digital Field Guide" book as an extra present. That is the extra mile . . . . a rare commodity these days.

This company is above 5 stars in my opinion with Matt and Kat at the helm, they will go from success to success in the new and used photographic retail industry. Don't waste time and money anywhere else, shop here. You won't be disappointed.
