    Default what is your definition of unused?

    for me unused = new

    but this thread in the B&S stumps me haha

    but i will pardon him if its a typo, should be underused instead of unused.

    I've seen "mint" with over a thousand shutter counts.
    Just have to learn how to "interpret" how CS BnS work

    i think "mint" is still quite ok... it can be mint copy or mint usage (in terms of physical appearance).

    but if u have used a camera even once, u definitely cannot say its unused!

    Definition from B&S:
    Condition: Mint
    Description: Like new. Not used since it left the shop. No signs of use.
    Also known as: Mint

    Condition: 10
    Description: Very carefully used. Only very light user marks. Without close inspection, item would pass for mint.
    Also known as: Mint(-), Near-Mint, A
    So, even a 10 is considered Mint(-), people just don't bother to put the '(-)' in and call a 10 Mint.

    Would you like to have this piece of uneaten Toblerone chocolate bar? I bite and licked it a couple of times but it is still uneaten after all.

    Mint probably originates from something having been just minted ie fresh from being produced. If it's been used, it's not mint, really, is it?

    well, you want my used 1? its gonna be darn rare and limited cos i don't use...

    think if i use, i'll make sure its non-spermicidal, so that whoever bid and won will enjoy the wholesome goodness captured inside. Every drop matters.

    Take a few shots color cannot make it, feel like throwing away

    Deal @ serangoon, 2 days only before I change my mind
