The Sony a6000 has become the newest craze among photographers in 2018. This trend will probably continue into the near future. The disadvantage to prospective buyers is that should the demand for this product increase, the price, which is already a pinch to many pockets might rise even higher making it unreachable. At the moment, one can acquire it at an average of $440.
The one million dollar question, though, is whether to buy it new or refurbished. Of course, a new one guarantees you the best working conditions and with a few additional accessories, it can meet all your photography needs. However, it is the price that keeps a new Sony a6000 out of reach for many admirers.
The option of buying a Sony Alpha A6000 refurbished deals can be good if you do your homework well. First, you will not go wrong if your seller is an experienced photographer. It even becomes better still if it is someone you know personally since in that case you eliminate the chances of being cheated. Some refurbished models are as good as new if they undergo all the processes of testing, repairs, and inspection before finally being sold.
If you can’t get someone you trust to buy from, you can opt for a reputable store or online distributor. This assures you of a return policy and the product you get will most likely be genuine. Well known distributors will not want their name spoilt, so they will only sell quality products. Again, refurbished models are taken through several checks, unlike the new ones which are checked only once. Their working conditions are thus not questionable.
A refurbished camera in good working condition can be a good deal since you save 15% and sometimes more. Since most cameras come with a warranty, it is good to buy a refurbished one within a year when the warranty is still active.
Although a refurbished Sony a6000 camera might have scratches and weak springs or buttons, these are only signs that it was being used before. It is still the best option as compared to the cost of a new one.
