I've read many threads of people buying from canon refurbished website. Shutter count will vary from camera to camera. It has a 90 day warranty.

I would have no reservations about it. I've bought a camera that came from them and it's been trouble free.

I bought my 60D refurbished from Canon Direct 15 months ago and I will probably buy my next camera in the same fashion. It came to me with about 350 shutter actuations on it and is going strong at about 42K.

I couldn't distinguish it from a new camera when I got it, as it came sealed, scuff-free, and with all the peripherals a new 60D would come with.

I would buy refurbished, but they charge taxes to California residents.

Got my 5D2 about 6 months ago 635 on the shutter, hard to tell it was not new.

Really, the only reason to not buy something from the Canon Refurb store is that either A: they're out of stock or B: you're waiting for one of their regular sales.

My 60D was puchased as a refurb from Canon and I could not tell it from new, which in fact it was essentially because when I checked the shutter count it was down around 40 to 50.

I will add to someone who commented about a 90-day warranty, there is also a 14-day exchange period. I have seen one bad report here about a refurb, keep in mind that was out of hundreds of good reports. That individual got a unit with a scratch, obvious wear and software reported in excess of 10,000 shutter actuations. Everyone here advised he send it back which he did and Canon replaced it and also was very apologetic.

I bought my T3i kit refurbished from Canon Direct for about $470.

Absolutely no issues. Shutter count was below 5K clicks.

I will likely buy my full frame upgrade from the same source.

Got my 7D as a refurb from Canon. Looked brand new, and has worked flawlessly. If you're considering refurb, make sure to take advantage of the savings through the CLP.

If refurbished by Canon, it is better than brand new. It has been tested and retested.


It's not a photo until you print it! :cool:

I bought my 5DMk2 refurb from Canon about a week or so after the 3 was announced. Love it, no problems.

As for shutter count? Who cares? I don't. I take pictures and don't worry about it.
