CONDITION OF PRODUCT
We describe condition as best and as honestly as possible from our vantage point and our expertise in evaluating product condition. Product description of condition can be subjective in nature depending on condition type. For example, what we may view as a minor surface scratch may be a major scratch to another. We will not entertain nor debate these subjective conditions of wear. The buyer will assume the risk of these kinds of subjective wear conditions. Further, used vintage products are not perfect specimens. Therefore, in some cases, certain aspects of camera operation may require minor adjustments. A perfect example of that is a camera's exposure meter which may be in operating condition but requires a zero light adjustment so it gauges accurately. In this case and other like situations, the buyer assumes the responsibility in making these kinds of adjustments.
We make every effort to provide fine quality products at a fair price and ship those items on-time. Providing excellent customer service is a prime goal for all of us here at TheVintageShop5. Should you have any questions, concerns, issues or even praise of any kind, please don't hesitate to contact us anytime, day or night. We are here to serve you. Thank you for visiting our store and we hope to do business with you soon.
