Shopping in the KHB Photografix online store is easy! You don't have to log in or register to shop in our store. Your information will be collected as you checkout.

The following tutorial should help answer most questions you might have while shopping in our store. If you have any problems when following these steps, or require further assistance, please contact us.


Find Items You Want
You can browse the products in our store using the list of categories displayed in the "Shop by Category" or "Shop by Brand" menus on the left side of the window. Or search for specific products or brands using the Search or Advanced Search tools on the green Navigation Bar. When you find an item that interests you, click the title or name of the item to see its details page, which will provide you with additional information about that item. Most listings also have a larger product picture available, accessed by simply clicking on the "Click to zoom" link under the image on the details page. The pop-up magnifier screen has its own set of tools to allow you to enlarge the image further and move the image in the frame to examine specific areas of the pictures.

Using the Search Tools
You can use the Search or Advanced Search tools to help you find items quickly. By default, the standard Search tool looks in product titles, product descriptions, and product #'s for a match to ALL the words you enter in the Search box. Therefore too few search words may return too many results, while using too many words may cause the search engine to miss the listing you're looking for because it doesn't contain all of those words.

If the search comes back with no results, first check your spelling. For example, the misspelling "Besseler" will find no listings, while the correct spelling "Beseler" will return all Beseler items. You may need to try a different search term. For example, we use the term "easel" for the device that holds the photographic paper on the baseboard of an enlarger. If you were to search for "paper holder" or "masking frame", the search would not find all the listings for easels.

The Advanced Search tool provides additional options for filtering your search such as "Exact phrase", or Any word", and allowing you to confine the search to a specific category or subcategory. If you can't find the item you're looking for by searching or browsing, please feel free to contact us and inquire about the item. We have thousands of products not yet listed in the store..

Wish Lists
If you find items that you are interested in but do not wish to purchase right now, you can add them to a "Wish List" by clicking on [Add to Wish List] in the product listing. The Wish List can be used to quickly find those items again on future visits without having to search or browse for them. Please note that you must register in order to maintain a Wish List.

Send To Friend
If you find and item that someone you know might be interested in, you can send them a link to the item by clicking on the [Send to Friend] tab in lower part of the product detail page. You will need to enter your name and email address, and the recipient's email address. If you would like to include a note in the email, check the box for "Add a personal message" and enter your comments in the box. Note that you can also use this feature to send a link to yourself, if you prefer not to use the Wish List.

Add Items to Your Shopping Cart
When you find an item you would like to purchase, click on [Buy Now] under the product listing, or [Add to Cart] on the item's product details page. Once you've added the first item to your Shopping Cart, you can continue searching or browsing to find additional products until your cart contains all of the items you want to order.

At any time while you are shopping you can see the current contents of your Shopping Cart by clicking on [View Cart] in the "Shopping Cart" menu on the right side of the window or on the [Shopping Cart] button on the Navigation Bar. On the Your Shopping Cart page you can review your selections and change quantities or delete items from your cart. When changing quantities, remember to click on [Update] to recalculate the total.

Calculate Shipping Cost
Also on the Your Shopping Cart page is a link to "Calculate shipping cost". Click on this link to have the calculator determine the available shipping options and costs for the current items in your cart. If you're not logged in as a registered customer, a pop-up window will appear in which you can specify your location. Canadian customers will need to specify country, province and postal code, US customers country and state, and international customers country only. The calculator may take several seconds to provide the results. If you wish to learn more about the different shipping options, please refer to the "Shipping Information" page.

If you receive an error message, or "Other - shipping cost to be advised" appears as the only shipping option, please contact us for additional information, or you can continue to place your order and we will contact you with the available shipping options and costs when we review your order.

Proceed to Checkout
