Most important is to make sure the camera is working and can take pictures.

for warranty you might want to get the original receipt from the seller.

If you want warranty, or if the seller claims to still have valid manufacturer warranty, do request to have the receipt.

Also, use doodle around and make sure the camera really works as it should. Then hope for the best!

This is what I normally check:

1. sign of rough handling

2. any fungus in lens

3. shoot a few pictures and play back on LCD

4. check if flash works

5. make sure the charger is included

6. body cap if it's a DSLR

Check for full functionability and any abnormalitlies in taking pics.
The output quality of those pics, comestic conditions, full set (as if all accsessories intact) etc.. Waranty wise, most will honor them if u have the recept indicating the date of purchase. :)

wah... 30X zoom :bigeyes:
what do you want to shoot with such a focal length?
Glad that everything is ok so far. Shoot more to gain familiarity with it, arm yourself with the basics of photography, then go out and shoot with a critical mind. Don't forget to post too!

Thought of using the 30x zoom to shoot bird or other little creatures. :bigeyes:
