That should not be a problem. How much are they asking for it and what is its condition? Are they including any extras?

Thanks for your response Ron,

They are asking 7k with an 8 & 16 gb sxs, batts and basic tripod.

I think that price is to high considering the time on camera. Also, you will need a good tripod to work effectively so be careful with that. I use a Sachtler FSB 6 and it works great but if they are just offering a basic one be careful. Good luck.

Make sure the camera has the latest firmware updates.

There isn't much data on hours. This discussion came up when everyone started moving away from tape. I don't think hours have as much effect as where and how the camera has been used.
