Frequently Asked Questions
Need some help?
Check our FAQ page for the answers to many commonly asked questions.
The photos you see are likely to be stock photos, although this is not always the case. Due to the sheer amount of different items coming in, we're unable to photograph each item individually.
The description and photos are representative of the item you will receive - of course, if you're looking for a specific version, or serial number, feel free to get in touch and ask us for more details.
Some products don't have photos, why is that?
Our website features a full, live listing of our entire inventory. As soon as it comes into the shop, we list it here on the website too. It takes time to get through everything, so not everything will have a photograph.
When can I expect my order?
We are a small team running a busy shop, and as such we can't always post items out immediately - but we endeavour to dispatch stock within 48 hours of receiving cleared payment (not including weekends or bank holidays)
If you need an item for the next day, or have any particular delivery requirements, we are happy to try and accommodate this if you discuss it with us prior to ordering. Once the item has been dispatched, we cannot be held responsible for any service delays from the courier that is used. We always post items with delivery confirmation and full insurance up the order value.
All used equipment we sell is comprehensively inspected and tested by us. We grade our items with the following scale:
Mint- : Superb. Is a used item, but it will have absolutely minimal signs of use, if any. We tend to use this only when an item is complete with box or original packaging.
Exc+ : Very good condition, it will have seen light use and there will be some very minor cosmetic imperfections.
Exc : Good used condition - what you might expect from a used item. Some signs of use, but fully working. Our standard condition rating.
Avg : Poor condition overall but still fully working. Will have obvious signs of use - for example optics may have imperfections, or cosmetic dings - but nothing too detrimental to its functionality.
Ugly: Only a mother could love it! Heavily used, beaten up, or whatever you want to call it! Will function but will have some obvious defects, for example; a non-working light meter, there may be a ding to the filter rim, deep scratches to optics, or significant signs of use and wear.
Please note that for any condition rating, we do not test or guarantee selenium-cell light meters which are built into cameras, due to age. These types of meter are usually only found on much older models which are 40-50 years old, and often degrade to inaccurate or inoperative levels.
Hand-held light meters (including selenium types) are guaranteed be accurate to within +/- 1 stop.
All items come with three months guarantee unless otherwise stated. The warranty is not transferable - the sale, lending, or consignment of an item to a third party will terminate any remaining warranty period from us.
Any equipment bought online from West Yorkshire Cameras has a 14 day return guarantee from the date the item has been received by you. For full information on returns policy, see our Returns page.
