7. Onestop Digital Warranty
Unless otherwise stated, we offer 12 months "Return to Base" warranty for cameras, camcorders, lenses and flashguns. Warranty starts from the date we despatch your order.
We will arrange courier to collect the faulty products from you or reimburse all shipping costs if the faulty products are to be picked up or sent from the countries where the orders were initially delivered to.
Postage reimbursement can only be granted if 1) you can provide us with the postal receipt; 2) the fault is classified as manufacturer's fault that is covered by the warranty; and 3) you use a postal service that we specify.
The warranty is not transferable, i.e., if our customers sell or give away their products, the new owners will not be entitled to inherit the warranty.
The warranty does not cover any consumable items, accessories, cosmetic damage or loss to any software programs/data, damage due to accident, misuse, moisture, abuse, negligence, improper voltage supply, unauthorised repair, modifications of the product.
Some products come with American, Japanese or Hong Kong warranty cards, customers are required to provide us with these cards when repair is required. Repairs would have to be paid for by the customers if the customers cannot provide us with the warranty cards.
If the returned product is found to be not faulty, the customer has to pay for all shipping charges before we can return the product back to the customer, so we would like to advise our customers to test the products thoroughly before returning them to us. If possible, please test the products with different camera bodies, lenses, batteries, memory cards, etc. Resetting your equipment to factory settings is also highly recommended.
8. Extended Warranty
Onestop Digital has joined up with Mack Camera to offer optional extended international warranty.
If a product is purchased with Mack extended international warranty, Onestop Digital's "Return to Base" warranty would cover for the first 90 days. After this initial 90 days period, the Mack international warranty will start on 91st day.
Mack warranty can also be bought by itself to cover your existing equipment, in which case there must be at least 90 days remaining on the manufactuer's or retailer's warranty when the Mack warranty is purchased.
Detailed terms and conditions for Mack warranties can be found on Mack Camera's website.
9. Return Policy
If there is a manufacturer's fault with the product, you are required to inform us within 5 days of receiving your order. Please note that faulty product has to be returned in same condition as sold and undamaged. After this 5 days period, refund or replacement will not be offered and faulty product will be repaired under warranty.
If the product is delivered damaged, you are also required to inform us within 5 days of receiving your order. After this 5 days period, we cannot be held responsible for any damages to the product.
Product can only be returned if in original manufacturer's packaging, same condition as sold, with all documentation and blank warranty cards (if any). Please do not place stickers or shipping labels on the original manufacturer's package.
Upon receiving your returned order, we will inspect the faulty product. We will then provide you with a replacement if our techincal staff approves that the product does indeed carry a manufacturer's fault. We will also reimburse your shipping costs if the product is found to be faulty.
If our techincal staff does not agree with your claim and the product functions normally, we will return the item upon receiving from you a postage cost.
Lens dust/hair and LCD dead pixels will not be considered as fault, therefore products cannot be returned for any of these reasons. Lenses are by no means dust-free. Every lens (even the ones came straight from the factory) carries a bit of dust/hair inside that in no way affects image quality, as the lenses had already gone through the manufacturers' quality controls and passed.
If the product is not defective but you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return the product for a refund. We have to be notified by email within 5 days after receiving your package. Please note that 13% restocking fee and shipping & postage cost will be deducted from the refund. All returned products must be free from damage of any kind and be in its original factory box with all original packing materials, warranty cards, manuals, accessories and any other materials included. Please note that products have to be returned to us within 10 days after delivery and you are solely responsible for all shipping costs.
10. Product Compatibility
Customers are advised to check product compatibility before placing their orders. Onestop Digital cannot be held responsible for any incompatibility issues, please contact the manufacturer.
If you would like to return incompatible products, we are willing to replace or refund under our return policy.
11. Back-Focus, Front-Focus and Soft-Focus
Please note that we do NOT offer replacements if you find your lenses to have back-focusing, front-focusing or soft-focusing problems.
Manufacturers carry out their own quality controls, which have their own tolerance ranges. When we receive lenses from our suppliers or manufacturers, the lenses had already gone through their quality controls and passed, as the focusing should have been within their tolerance ranges. Although the lens might not be perfect, it would be considered ‘acceptable’ according to the manufacturer's own definition.
Camera bodies also play a part in such focusing problems, as they are like any other products that calibrations are required and tolerance ranges are set. Combining a "slightly off" camera body with a "slightly off" lens would make these focusing problems more obvious, especially with wide aperture lenses. For this reason, most of the newer cameras now have “lens microcalibration” features. If done correctly, this feature would automatically compensate so that each of your lenses would correctly focus.
If you believe the manufacturer would find your lens to be faulty, you are more than welcome to return the lens to us. Upon receiving your lens, we will send it to the manufacturer for inspection. If the manufacturer believes there is indeed something wrong with the focusing, we will send you a replacement. However, if they claim there is nothing wrong with the focusing, we would have to ask you to pay for all charges to have the same lens returned to you, namely manufacturer's inspection charge and all postage costs.
