currently considering buying 2nd hand DSLR

some of the my recommendations

search on internet, check for potential issues & standard kit items

use own CF card to take some shots, then bring back to review [use different ISO settings, continuous drive mode, different metering etc]

shoot RAW & try out workflow of conversion

anything else to look out for?

how to check lens? e.g. mould?

dust on sensor?

battery? [how to differentiate original or generic?]

proper shutter sounds?

how to gauge proper flash operation?

thanx for advice rendered

oops, looks like a lot of questions...
