We're sorry but we cannot accept responsibility for any pricing errors on our website. We try very hard to keep our pricing accurate but on rare occasions we goof. As much as we would like to sell $1800 cameras for $180 or $85 accessories for $8.50 if we did that we would be history very quickly. You get the picture. If you notice an error please call it to our attention. Thanks.

We welcome orders worldwide however the only acceptable method of payment for orders outside the United States is by wire transfer to our bank.

Shipping Charges for Expedited Orders

  • Add $9 for Two-Day Air UPS and $19 for Next Day Air UPS. Bulky or especially heavy items are extra. FEDEX, weekend and early AM delivery is additional.
  • Connecticut residents please add 6.35% sales tax.


Our grading system is a carryover from our 20 years of Shutterbug magazine advertising.

  • MINT , LIKE NEW, AS NEW. They all mean the same thing. As pristine as an item could be without being identified as NEW.
  • MINT- or NEAR MINT. Very superior condition with only the very slightest hint of use.
  • EXC++ Again, very fine condition but minor suggestions of careful use.
  • EXC+ The item shows normal wear. Certainly not abused or dinged.
  • EX - Item reveal a moderate degree of use. While it will perform as well as some higher priced, cosmetically finer pieces, an EX item is definitely not for those who like pretty looking equipment.
  • VG - All things are relative and our notion about VG (very good) is not very good. Cosmetic condition reveals heavy use. While operationally the item is fine, purchase of a VG item should be governed primarily by a limited budget.


All used items are sold with a 15 day money back guarantee. A restocking fee of 3% is charged for the return of a used item. The restocking charge on the return of a New item is 15%. Since we sell New items only once, you are urged to consider the restocking fee before ordering a new item. Goods must be returned in their original condition with original packing material and blank warranty cards. Shipping charges are not refundable.

We've been trading fine equipment for a very long time and while we want to make everyone happy we know it ain't always possible! If you are reticent about committing serious money to something you can't see first hand and want some questions answered, please call for a more detailed description. By appointment we would be glad to demonstrate your prospective purchase.
