Buying used cameras from Adorama?

3 years 1 month ago #595335 by Frederick Images
I've been thinking about picking up one of those Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Cameras and I just found one being sold in 'Very Good' condition with Adorama's used department.  They have it listed for $549.

Have you bought or sold anything to Adorama's used department and give me some input?

I bought a used lens from them a few years ago, and wouldn't hesitate for a nano second to buy anything from them now. They have a return window (30 days? maybe Helen will chime in) so its pretty safe. They didn't build that business doing bad business, no?

Why so serious?

Agree on doing business with Adorama, stand up group.  I do believe the 30 day return is on new gear only.  I'm pretty sure the used gear doesn't have the policy.

Not true.

If I'm not happy with my used equipment purchase, will Adorama let me make a return?At Adorama, we want you to be completely satisfied with all of your purchases, both new and used! That's why we let you return any used equipment within 30 days of purchase, no questions asked! Plus, we never charge a restocking fee. Store purchases must be returned within 14 days.

Without hesitation would I buy ANOTHER camera body used from Adorama.  I buy almost all my stuff used from them.  They are very conservative on their grading as well.  I have bought all the way down to "V" (very good) and had to really look for wear.  E+ is like new.   Camera body I am shooting with right now is used from Adorama actually.  Super happy with it.

Good post Randy, I knew there was a return window, and you can't ask for better than thirty days on used gear....

Why so serious?

My apologies; I've been out sick for a week or yes, I'd have been right in here!

thank you all for the information.  Now I just need the right deal.  I'm actually watching 3 websites for that as we speak!   But I do appreciate the heads up on Adorama.  

Thank you too Helen for chiming in.  

Fred
