I would guess fresh alright. Fresh out of the box with nothing.... no manual cable, software, battery, etc, etc.

There aren't too many posts here about them but I would read these. This list is alphabetical, so just go down to the R's.

At that price you truly need to expect to get what you pay for, which is a Royal pain the rear. Check prices at B&H and Adorama. They are over $450 more expensive, but they are in line with current prices. Royal Camera is not, by a long shot. There's a reason for that. It's called bait & switch, extra high shipping charges, missing things that should be included, and no response when you have a problem. Save yourself a HUGE headache and stay away from those guys.
