Anyone with outstanding orders should contact their bank or credit card company regarding a refund. Camerabox has posted the following statement on their website along with a FAQs section. We would recommend online purchases are made with a credit card, as this should provide protection for situations like this.

"Camerabox Limited was placed into Administration on 28 June 2011 and Martha H Thompson and David H Gilbert of BDO LLP, Kings Wharf, 20-30 Kings Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 3EX were appointed Joint Administrators.

I made the mistake of buying a camera from Photobox.It broke down and I returned it.They sent it back saying that there was nothing wrong with it. When it developed the same fault I sent it to Nikon uk, who repaired it. however it transpired that the camera was a grey import and not originally destined for the European market and as a result I had to pay the repair charges.After this incident i have beeb careful to buy equipment fron a recognised Nikon dealer even though it costs slightly more that the bargain basement grey importerd.

So is Camerabox and Photobox the same company...
I bought a camera with 2 lens from camera box, when the lens went faulty i could not get in touch with them, customer service was none exsistant, they trade under quite a few names so go careful when buying from the net.
My cannon 60D has a fault now im just hoping mine is not an import as i have sent it back to cannon for fixing, this was purchased from camera box.
