Thread: What to check for when purchasing a 2nd hand camera

    Default What to check for when purchasing a 2nd hand camera


    What should I check for when inspecting a 2nd hand camera prior to closing the sale? Any particular places that are prone to damage or any function to try that will 'expose' specific malfunctions?
