LN300 PC Remote Modification

I provide a modification service and can convert your LN300 for remote control from your PC or Laptop. Opening the camera for the modification will void your LN300 Warranty. I have no way of being certain that the camera you send to me has been previously altered and I will accept only unmodified cameras. If it is clearly found during inspection of the camera you send that the camera has been previously opened, is malfunctioning or damaged; it will be immediately returned without modification and the shipping cost will be retained.

I do not accept cameras for repair service.

When I receive your camera I will test its functions before beginning any modification and also afterward. Be assured that I want your camera to work well after the modification and I will correct any problems that should occur as a result of the modification for the warranty period after you receive the modified camera.
