Check Originality Of Your Nikon DSLR Now; Nikon’s Notice Suggests You Might Have Been Deceived
Famous digital camera company, Nikon, is admonishing potential buyers of its DSLR to stay vigilant about the originality of the devices because counterfeit cameras are possibly being sold out in the market.
These counterfeit models are not, in traditional sense, a low quality version of Nikon cameras. They are original Nikon DSLR devices but not necessarily the ones which you are being paid for. That is to say they are older models whose external body panels belie their internal specifications. The sellers get the benefit by means of price differences between older models and the modern ones.
Nikon realized these hypocritical tactics of the rogue traders at the end of 2014, when it discovered that its D800 DSLRs were dressed in D800E DSLR shells by sellers in order to grab few hundred dollars extra from the buyers.
The transgressors have apparently not forsaken operations of trading fake devices as Nikon has encountered another similar expedition with its D610 and D4S. In the recent case, Nikon’s D7100 (worth $1000) crop sensor cameras are being reshaped to present the appearance of D610 DSLRs (worth $1500).
The price difference is enough to enable scoundrels make money bags by selling a couple of hundreds of cameras. The poor buyers’ don’t even know that they have been furtively robbed of $500.
Moreover, Nikon D4 has also been modified to look like D4S by some of the traders to trade it illicitly. The Nikon D4 is no longer produced but the Nikon D4S is a novice expensive camera with price value of $6,000.
