All orders from the web can be cancelled provided we have not already shipped the goods to you.

Voucher Codes/Offers

We will at certain times offer voucher codes that can be used on the website. These codes are entered at the checkout stage and will offer discounts or free offers. To use, simply enter the voucher code at checkout. These voucher codes cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. We reserve the right to remove these voucher codes at any time without any notification. If two voucher codes have been used incorrectly then we will use our discretion to use the best voucher for you the customer, provided it is still valid. If an invalid voucher code is used, the order will be processed in the normal way without the reduction the voucher would have given.


We often post information on new products on the website ahead of their launch in order to give customers the opportunity to pre-order the device. If we have stated in the description that this is a pre-order then it means you will place an order in the normal way with all your details and will give you the opportunity to get one of the first devices when the product is released. The deposit payment will be deducted from the price when the product comes into stock. You are able to cancel this pre-order right up to the date of shipment.

The price shown can sometimes be an estimate and whilst we try and make this as accurate as we can, it may change up or down before shipment. If the price does change we will inform you before shipment of this and give you the opportunity to re-confirm or cancel your back order.

Uncollected Film Processing

We will contact you once a film has been processed and your prints / negatives are ready for you to collect. We will hold your order for a period of 6 months from the date the order was presented for developing. We reserve the right to dispose of any prints / negatives that remain uncollected after after this time period.

Integration of the Trusted Shops Trustbadge

Following an order, the Trusted Shops Trustbadge is incorporated into this web page in order to display our Trusted Shops trustmark for buyers and the eventually collected reviews, as well as the Trusted Shops product offer.
In balancing the various interests, this serves to safeguard our legitimate prevailing interests in an optimised marketing of our offer. The trustbadge and the services advertised are an offer of Trusted Shops GmbH, Subbelrather Str. 15C, 50823 Köln.
Whenever a trustbadge is called up, the web server automatically stores a so-called server log file which contains, for example, your IP address, the date and time of retrieval, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the retrieval. This access data will not be evaluated and will be automatically overwritten seven days after your visit to the page.
Other personal information will only be transferred to Trusted Shops if you decide, after completing an order, to use Trusted Shops products or have already registered for their use. In this case, the contractual agreement between you and Trusted Shops applies.
