Hi All,
I'm thinking of buying a 2nd hand DSLR and wish to know if there is any shop that will help to check if the camera is working fine?

Thank you.

1. Please use a descriptive topic next time.
2. All shops will tell you it's working fine. It's up to YOU to determine if it really is.
3. You can also consider buying here from clubsnap BnS, may be cheaper than the shops.
4. Read the MANY "buying 2nd hand dslr" threads to see the normal checklist.
5. If in doubt, bring a friend along who knows what they are doing.

Thanks for the replied...will take note infuture.
I'm buying from a seller posted in a forum not from shop. What i need is a shop which i can bring the camera down and they do a check on the spot. Don't mind to pay the shop some $ to get an expert opinion to do this.

I don't understand... if you have already bought that item, then bring it in to the shop for a check (taking that the shop will do a check for you) and found that the item is faulty or not working in a pristine condition, what are you going to do? Call up the seller and ask for a refund? We have been reading alot of stories even in CS here, and we know the result, huh?

Second, unless the seller agreed to go to one of these shops with you whereby you send the camera in for a check and waited... with the seller, before deciding whether to buy or not... frankly, I doubt many seller would allow that. It was bad business and seriously, you need to be fair to the seller too.

So my only advise is... learn to perform checks yourself.

If in doubt, bring a friend who knows how to check. I don't think sellers are willing to spend the time going to the shops with you.
