Since 1993 Jim's Cameras has been serving the camera needs of Seattle. Vintage cameras. Metal cameras. Digital cameras. Nice stuff.
Item Grading Information:
Cosmetic descriptions are as accurate as possible. If you want a better description please email) prior to ordering an item. In my rating system 10 would be considered NEW. An item with a rating of 10- would be almost like new. An item rating of 5 would be very beat up and showing a lot of wear but working unless otherwise specified in the item listing. Normally items also have written descriptions in each listing.

Cheap International Postage BUT....
1-A Priority Mail International Flat-Rate Envelope is $12.99 to all countries.
Items must be flat and fit easily in the envelope.
These items are NOT insured and are sent at your own risk.
They also have NO tracking information at all.
2-An International small parcels items 4 pounds or less may be mailed in a tiny box.
These items are not insured and are mailed at your own risk.
They also have NO tracking information at all.
The reason there is no tracking and no insurance is the United States Postal Service (http://www.USPS.com) does NOT offer any insurance or any tracking for these low cost international mailing options.
TRACKING & INSURANCE....
If you desire tracking and insurance this costs a minimum of $45 even for the tiny international boxes. So if you desire insurance and tracking be sure not to use either of the cheaper postage options. If you pay for the more expensive shipping you will get both tracking and insurance on international items.
The Type of mailing is YOUR choice.
If cheaper postage is used then Jim's Cameras does not refund any money if the item does not arrive. We are not responsible for lost items if they are not tracked and insured.
I have many happy repeat customers. You like what you get from Jim's Cameras because you get a good deal, and you have fun with what you buy. I take pride in selling equipment that is of highest quality, that works well. Your top quality results are worth the effort.
All cameras (and other items) ordered ON LINE have a two week mechanical warranty (14 days total) from the date you get the camera (or other item). This warranty means that the camera (or other item) mechanics will work correctly (or as explicitly stated in the on line ad listing for the item (or items) on the Jim's Camera website at the time of purchase). Since many pieces of photo equipment that I sell are used and vintage it is understood that sometime they have minor defects which may be stated in the on line ad listing the item (or items) for sale. You agree that if defects were noted in the original on line listing for your purchased item (or items) that Jim's Cameras is not responsible for these defects. If for any reason the camera (or other item) does not work correctly (and the particular defect was not noted in the original on line item ad) I will REPAIR it at MY cost if notified during this two week period. If the defect was stated prior to purchase in the on line ad listing (for a camera or any other purchased store item) I will not be responsible for any costs or repairs needed. Jim's Cameras is not responsible for any costs (such as postage insurance or handling) associated with return of the item (or items).
After two weeks (14 days total after I mailed the item) Jim's Cameras or the owner of Jim's cameras have NO responsibility for any purchased equipment.

Cosmetic descriptions are as accurate as possible. If you want a better description please email prior to ordering an item. Since cosmetic descriptions are subjective I under rate my grading to avoid nit-picking and there are no returns on cosmetic grounds.
For all items ordered ON LINE...
There is a 20% restocking fee for all (on line) returned items. This fee is not based in any way on why you desire to return the item. As stated the fee is a restocking fee. The fee is applied equally and fairly to all returned items. Postage handling and insurance is NOT refunded for any returned on line items. The cost of your original postage, insurance, and handling is fully deducted before any refund. ONLY the price of the item will be refunded less a 20% restocking fee. Items ordered on line may be returned for up to two weeks (14 days total) after the item was mailed by me to you. After this two weeks on line ordered items may not be returned.

No exceptions.
If you just wish to return an item purchased on line (and I am notified during the two week return period that you desire to return an item) then you agree to return/mail this item (or items) promptly.
