p.1 #1 · Demo lighting equipment - How to know if it has not been abused?


Hi,

I have walked several times to a photo busines,
and the demo will be offered next to the new item.
Sometimes the new item is not there, but the
demo is. In the past I have heard an explanation
of some sort, or the other, about a demo item.
The explanation was, that basically, a demo
item sits there until somebody asks about
the functioning of the product. These
are, as I understand it, the only times that a demo
will be used. Whether a lens, or camera, lamp
head, flash, battery back, etc. the demo is only
there to be briefly shown to clients how a product
works or how it is supposed to be used. In my imagination,
it is an item that has not been part of the rent
department in that reputable photo store where I and many others
usually buy from. Neither it is considered a used item,
or part of that department in the store. The Demo is the
kind of item that could be labeled as new minus the little
use given to a product in a period of between one year
and three years! Would I be right in all that I have written
above, or what would you say that a demo is??
Furthermore, in the case of a battery pack, lamp head, or
flash, how do you know if it has not been abused as a demo?
Do you take it to a technician to be evaluated with the hope
that his fee is not larger than the discount you are getting
by buying demo?

Thank you in advance, kind regards,

igmolinav : ) !!!

As long as they offer full warranty just like new ones, I don't see why you need to be worried. I bought stuffs from helix camera grade as demo but come with warranties with significant lower prices.

When I have been demoed lighting gear or digital backs I had such in use for several weeks. Other than that I agree with maxx9.

Like its all ready been said, just make sure it comes with the full warranty like the new gear gets.
