Thread: What is "lightly used" in your opinion?

  1. #1

    Default What is "lightly used" in your opinion?

    I have seen many posts on Buy and Sell that advertised cameras that are:
    "lightly used", "backup", "not much used", "used for hobby"

    but then reported a shutter count like 10-20K and above.

    Honestly, it took me quite sometime (1.5-2 years) to go to 10K.
    That is even when I was travelling 3-4 trips a year.

    I guess I want to seek opinions what can be called "lightly used" or "hobby" camera in terms of shutter count.

    cheers all

    The camera has been used only under daylight but never in darkness?
