Digital Cameras – Going Refurbished



Are you in the market for a digital camera? Do you want to save money but still purchase a quality product? It might be time for you to consider looking into refurbished digital cameras. These are cameras that have been sent back to the manufacturer for various reasons, and then tested and retested to ensure all the equipment is working as good as new. Below are some advantages of purchasing refurbished cameras.

Quality and Functionality

Refurbished digital cameras are, in reality, almost brand new. The quality and functions of these cameras are equal to a brand new model. This is because when a new camera is returned to the manufacturer (there is a time limit which is usually thirty days from the day of purchase), that camera is sent to their factory and will undergo a thorough inspection which will include testing for any defects. The camera will then go through a quality control examination. This testing and retesting will ensure that the digital camera is working and in perfect order.

The reasons are varied as to why these refurbished cameras are returned. Sometimes the camera was a gift and was not exactly what the recipient wanted. It could be that they wanted more features or that there were features included that they did not need. Some are used once or twice and then returned for the same reasons. Some refurbished cameras are returned because of cosmetic reasons; perhaps there is a scratch or a dent that the buyer feels could compromise the camera. As you can see from the above examples, refurbished digital cameras are usually used slightly or not at all.


We all like to save money and when you purchase refurbished digital cameras, you are getting a quality product at a fraction of the price. You may have been checking around for a new digital camera only to realize that the one you like is definitely out of your price range. Go to the manufacturer’s website and click the icon for Refurbished Cameras and you may be surprised to find the very camera you were hoping to buy at a much lower price. And if you cannot find that exact model, you can peruse the other models and their features and find one that is comparable. Remember that oftentimes the only reason this camera is listed as refurbished is because it was opened and cannot be resold as new; not because there is anything structurally or internally wrong with it.


You can be confident purchasing refurbished digital cameras from reputable dealers. As I mentioned before, this can often be done right on the manufacturer’s website. They can also be purchased from online auctions and you will buy with confidence when you take the time to read the seller’s positive comments from happy customers. It is also good to know that according to a market survey, refurbished digital cameras have a low rate of return; only about two percent. Each camera should include a warranty so be sure to ask about one up front.
