what to look out for when checking 2nd hand DSLR?
currently considering buying 2nd hand DSLR
some of the my recommendations
search on internet, check for potential issues & standard kit items
use own CF card to take some shots, then bring back to review [use different ISO settings, continuous drive mode, different metering etc]
shoot RAW & try out workflow of conversion
anything else to look out for?
how to check lens? e.g. mould?
dust on sensor?
battery? [how to differentiate original or generic?]
proper shutter sounds?
how to gauge proper flash operation?
thanx for advice rendered
oops, looks like a lot of questions...
