I'm currently bidding on a broken sony a7 camera, is this a too risky way to go about getting my first camera?


Recommended Posts

As the title says; I want to get into photography, and I thought buying, and then fixing a broken a7 would be a cheaper alternative to buying a new one. But since I've never fixed the a7 camera before, let alone any camera before, I wanted to asked you people if fixing it would be a too expensive endeavor.

Another option is to find a place that repairs them, then buy it for $350, and then spend another $350(???) to have it repaired.

If you don't have experience with repairing new, electronic cameras, AND the special tools needed, AND a complete service manual for that camera, you are asking if it's safe to walk on water!
