Best camera shop in London, in my opinion. Always great customer service from the team there. Tried the rest, but LCE remains the best, year after year

I did not actually visit the store physically ,but I’ve bought items online , and the ordering paying and delivery experience is first class .
I would recommend the LCE to anyone wishing to purchase all things photographic.

I didn’t catch the name of the man who helped me. But such helpful and sincere customer service. He really took the time to understand what I was looking for and explain my options clearly. Didn’t make me feel silly at all for being such a novice. Had an absolutely lovely chat with him about film, cameras and travel, made my day!

Went in 7 months ago with some idea of the binoculars I wanted and my price range, Tracy was able to give me a couple of choices with the benefits of each, no forced upselling. I am very happy with the one I bought and the professional service provided.

Went in today because my film camera stopped working. I am not sure what his name was but the guy at the front desk was so lovely and fixed it for me as it was a minor fault. He also explained why the flash on my other camera wasn’t working and has reasonably priced film rolls. I would really recommend this store to everyone! 🙂

I love this store (LCE, Strand), my favorite shop. The staff are highly knowledgeable and test the products themselves. They sell equipment to suit our experience. I’ve been going there for 10 years now. They get great second hand equipment too. Some of which are only a few weeks old!

I have inherited a DSLR with a nasty dirty sensor due to improper cleaning. The staff was really friendly and the service was top notch, they basically saved my camera for the regular sensor cleaning fee. I will certainly be coming back and also recommending them!

Very helpful staff, I had bought a lens for my Nikon camera from somewhere else so went it for some advice, ended up buying a new lens which I’m very happy with. No pressure selling here and a vast range of cameras and accessories to choose from. I will definitely be going back again when I need some more items.

Good selection. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. As usual, prices a bit higher than what you may find online if you take the time to look around. But if you want service or to try out some gear or just to have that next lens immediately, this is a good place.

Really helpful service. I was a novice looking to buy first digital SLR and was helped to find a great one in the second hand section. Entry level camera and I had things explained in simple terms as I’m not too clued up on all the jargon. Now to go on a course and learn how to use it!

Very poor show. Competitors valued a lens 70% more than they valued in store. The staff who values the lens didn’t even touch the lens to know the condition but straightaway said this is what we can pay and it will be trade-in only deal.

A truly wonderful camera store. Highly knowledgeable and approachable staff who gave insightful personal recommendations on kit. It might be a small footprint, but they carry just about everything. If you’re in the market for a camera, this should be your one and only stop.

Basically this is the best place to go for used camera equipment in London. They also sell new equipment too. The staff are very knowledgeable and are happy to take their time listening to what you want and showing you all the options available. It’s a fairly small shop in terms of space but they pack in alot of stock.

Couldn’t have had a better experience. Mark provided some really helpful advice in choosing which camera and lens to buy, and additionally was great in helping me pick up a bag, filter and extra battery. Price was within £1 of amazon for the camera and the lens and the rest were cheaper – thanks so much for all the help!

Been shopping here since the dark ages. The info and advice is top notch and the gear you buy is always realistically priced and covered by transparent guarantees, the second hand selection is excellent. Look I would give LCE 10 stars because they are one of the best camera shops in London. (If not the world)

I used LCE Strand to PX / Upgrade – because I was buying my upgrade from them, they offered me more ‘credit’ value than cash as a polite, ‘stick with us, we’ll look after you’ – unlike other used camera buyers in London. Great staff, technically sound and really nice to speak with. – big fan of LCE Strand
