Good morning from New Zealand! I hope you all have a better morning than me!!
It is Saturday morning, and I was planning to do a blog entry on my brand new camera today.
It was all so exciting when I went and picked up the camera from the seller on Tuesday. The seller made the effort to assure me that it is brand new and had never been used. (The camera was still in its original packaging, and did appear brand new to me.)
As of this morning, all ready to go, I had the brand new battery well and fully charged, and even rushed out yesterday (skipping morning tea) to purchase a Class 10 micro SDHC 8GB card especially for it….. only to now discover, when I turned the power on for the first time, that the touchscreen does not work.
Therefore, now my focus is on returning the faulty camera to the seller in order to secure a refund. I had also taken plenty of photos during the unboxing process, which are redundant now~~
Being a first time Trade Me user, I was silly enough to give the seller a positive feedback without testing the traded item out first. For someone who is already very paranoid, I am probably going to become even more paranoid now~~~~~
To be fair though, the seller might not have known there was an issue with the product. I had contacted him regarding the issue, and am in the process of waiting to hear back from him.
