Every camera we sell is vigorously inspected by our team. Our ten-part inspection method includes the following checks:

  1. Lens - we check for any mould, dust, haze, dirt, cracks and air bubbles. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining are noted.
  2. Zoom – we inspect both manual and power zoom work smoothly. Any issues are noted.
  3. Focus – we check that manual focus is smooth and works well. If automatic focus is included as a feature that is also checked.
  4. Motor / Claw – we check that the motor runs smoothly at all advertised speeds and that the film claw has sufficient torque to advance film.
  5. Filmgate – this is inspected and any dirt or hair is removed.
  6. Lightmeter – the lightmeter is inspected to ensure it automatically reacts correctly to light. Manual aperture control and/or backlight is also checked if included as a feature.
  7. Viewfinder – we inspect for mould, dust and haze or damage. Where possible we clean/remove any imperfections – any remaining is noted.
  8. Battery terminals - we inspect for rust/corrosion, cleaning and repairing where needed.
  9. Body – where possible we clean any imperfections. Any remaining cosmetic damage is noted.
  10. Additional Features – all additional model specific features (such as timelapse or crossfade) are checked for functionality.

Unless specifically mentioned in the product description, all items sold through our website have passed the above inspection and are fully working. With thousands of sales under our belt and 3000+ positive reviews our customers have found that our inspections are comprehensive and correctly reflect the condition of the camera. In the unlikely case that there is an issue, we offer a full 60 day warranty – allowing you plenty of time to check the camera yourself.
