The growth of the digital camera has changed the whole photography marketplace, not only for the cameras themselves but also for everything that goes with them. Now it's memory cards instead of film, paper and ink to print your photos and a whole range of different accessories.
This site at www.picstop.co.uk (www.picstop.com goes to the same place) does seem to have most things that any digital camera owner might want. Everything that is available is listed by category. There's printer paper and ink cartridges, digital cards and memory sticks, batteries and chargers, camera cases, accessories, card readers and media. If you haven't got a digital camera, you can buy one here although the range isn't huge - only 25 cameras on site when we were just checking. They're also a bit hidden away at the bottom of the list of products together with some disposable cameras.
The company describes itself as 'The Digital Accessory Specialist' but acknowledges it offers more than this and is expanding its range of products. This range now includes MP3 players and accessories, memory for selected games consoles and phones and accessories. The phones are actually provided by e2save.com, which is a trading division of The Carphone Warehouse Limited. This means, of course, that you have access to a comprehensive range of phones, including both mobile and USB VoIP phones. These have a variety of contracts that cover all the main networks.
The business was established in 2000 and operates from the Isle of Man. Although this no doubt has tax advantages for the company and its employees, it gives no benefit in terms of avoiding VAT on purchases. However, there is also a location in Jersey that can ship goods VAT free providing they are less than a set value, with the threshold currently set at £18.
The site has all the usual safe shopping and delivery logos, with separate verification of credit card payments. It also has the almost obligatory link to the company's Twitter entry and the option to sign up for email notification of special offers. Free standard delivery is available to UK addresses, with faster delivery and those to other European locations at a cost. A claimed 99% of products are usually in stock and so next day delivery is generally possible, despite the fact that products are technically starting off-shore.
Delivery claims do seem to be borne out by customer reviews, which are almost all positive. Quick delivery is frequently mentioned while good prices and a high standard of customer service are also often reported. To accentuate this, the company was the winner of the What Digital Camera Good Service award in 2007 and 2008.
