Is it normal/expected/possible that cameras leave the factory with some actuations on them already? Quality assurance testing, maybe? What's your experience?
Yup. I'd actually be worried if my camera arrived without anyone bothering to see if it works! You can't buy a new car with 0 miles on the clock for similar reasons.
This kinda makes sense.
So if I bought refurbished, I should expect the app to report actuations even if the in camera counter says 0? I've always thought the in camera counter was like an odometer in a car but I guess canon can always reset it.
