Thread: What to check for DSLR

    Default What to check for DSLR

    I am planning to ask a friend overseas to buy a DSLR for me and since there is no international warranty and troublesome to exchange... I would like to know what are the things to check for before he brings it back to me... Thanks...

    If there isn't much of a price difference, it's safer to get one locally.

    Even if everything works well at first, what if something major happens and requires repairs, the costs may set you back even more if bought locally. For the peace of mind, I'll get a big ticket item locally, even if I may need to pay more IMO.

    Get one locally, can go back home and test. If something is not right, can bring back to the shop for a one-to-one exchange. What to check for a new DSLR? I'll check EVERYTHING & EVERY function. Check for hot pixels (Censor), dead pixels (LCD) etc......

    Don't they teach punctuation in schools no more??



    To TS: if your friend knows photography and camera stuff, you just have to trust him. If not, whatever we tell you will probably make no difference
