More about CCI Camera alias Royal Camera


I am still getting a steady stream of comments from unhappy customers of the Brooklyn camera shop with many names. Whether it is called Royal Camera, City Camera City,, or , it is still the same shabby storefront operation in Brooklyn.

Not everyone writes to complain.  Some customers write to thank me and others are taking action. I received an email today from Dario Diaz, an attorney who is preparing a lawsuit against this store.

If you have any information to offer Dario and his client, please consider helping them out. This is the second lawyer who has shown interest in seeking damages from Royal Camera, CCI, etc.

I am an attorney in Tampa, Florida that is preparing a lawsuit against CCI Camera City, aka Royal Camera, et. al.  I ran across your site and would be interested in finding any complaints against CCI made by Florida residents.  Obviously, my main concern is the client I am currently representing in a bait and switch transaction.  But, I would really like to get additional people who have had similar dealings with CCI to be either witnesses in my current case, or to represent individually or in a class action against CCI.

If you have any information or might be able to help with anyone in Florida who has similar dealings with CCI, I would be glad to speak with them.  Thanks.

For those Florida residents who have felt the sting of a CCI camera scam, this is your chance for a little payback. Don’t sit at home and fume. See what you can do to get restitution and make the Internet safer for camera buyers.

Feel free to share any news of your success. An informed and active marketplace is the best weapon against shoddy business practices.

To make it easier to find all of the information about this company in
one place, I will create a website which contains every post I have
made and all of the comments I have received about this store. Meanwhile, my last
post, Online Camera Ripoffs Continue, is worth rereading while I put the new BadCameraStore website in place.

    Hey, I just want to thank you for the information you’ve posted about CCI Camera City/Royal Camera, etc…

    My girlfriend’s brother (a professional photographer) searched websites and saw that the prices offered by CCI to be the best he has seen. Both my girlfriend and her brother live in Australia and she’s visiting me here in Philadelphia for a few months.

    We were actually going to go to the store while in New York to look into purchasing a camera until I used Google Maps and found a link to a previous
    blog post of yours about their deceptive pratices. It took about two minutes of reading to nix that idea.

    Thanks again

    All it took

    I found your blog post after doing a search for CCI Camera City. I wish I would have found it before I tried to purchase a camera from them, however. I called to confirm my order with them and they berated me for not purchasing any accessories and said the camera wouldn’t work without them. (What camera needs a UV filter to work? Not a camera I want, that’s for sure.) And I just kept telling him all I wanted was the camera. And he said I could respond by saying “sir” all I wanted, but they wouldn’t sell me the camera without the accessories. He then said I had a dirty mouth, said my order was cancelled and they were going to charge me a $200 cancellation fee, and promptly hung up on me. Luckily, my bank was great in cancelling my debit card so even if they do try to charge me, I won’t have to pay for it. Huntington bank may have their faults, but compared to this place, they’re saints.

    I appreciate you doing all the leg work for the rest of us. And I hope you get those $@#$holes where it hurts.

    A few years ago I ordered a Canon 10D SLR camera from these people because of the prices that they were listing. Right from the start I go alot of crap requiring what I’d also need to make the camera work better. I informed the man that I was not new to camera and all I wanted was what I ordered. When he got mouthy I offered to cancel the order. After the delivery due date came and passed I called and ask and they started the run around. I demand a tracking number or I was call the bank and cancel any payment. I informed the man I was a deputy sheriff assigned to court security and was butt deep in attorneys all day. I asked him how he wanted to proceed do I get the tracking number or do I call the bank and speak with an attorney. He hung up on me but I did get the tracking number via email. I will NEVER EVER order from those people again

    I do not live in Florida but I tried to business with this company due to the prices advertised. I experienced everything everyone else did that posted reviews on their site. I never got the merchandise, never got return phone calls or e-mails and was treated rudely
    by some guy I had to call and confirm my order with. Can’t figure out why I had to call but then realized it was to try and get me to buy all of these additional accessories I did not need. Thankfully I never received it and went through the hell all of those many other people did – this company needs to be shut down now! and there should be some very stiff penalties attached.

    I just want to thank everyone for posting all of these comments on here. I was about to buy a camera from CCI but when I looked on the net their website had changed and I thought it very suspicious, so I googled CCI and I found all these comments and now I know that even though the price may be good, its no where near worth it at all! Thanks to you all!!
