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 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! :bsmilie:

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.:bsmilie:

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?

imagine if condoms were bought and sold like cameras
well, you want my used 1? its gonna be darn rare and limited cos i don't use... :bsmilie:

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. :thumbsup:

This one best. NEW somemore :bsmilie:

this is scary if all the shops sell their cameras this way!
Take a few shots color cannot make it, feel like throwing away

Deal @ serangoon, 2 days only before I change my mind
everybody should wait 2 days later, might really throw away...
