how to spot fake Nikon items

i made a similar thread before for batteries,now Nikon has decided to put this in their website. i hope that this can be made sticky as this is somewhat important in determining which is the real thing. this can also help retailers spot if they are sourced with counterfeit merchandise. be careful in using counterfeit products,specially batteries as these overheat or explode at worse since many are made under-spec.  :o :o :o

i wonder if theres already a fake  battery foe the d7000. i,m not sure if the extra i bought is a fake or not since it gets depleted after just a short while.

anyone has pics of the one included in the box? cant distinguish which is which. tia!

It really pays to get items from a reputable shop.

Thanks for sharing!

Grabe, bili na lang tayo sa mga certified reseller para sure kahit mahal. Eh yung mga 3rd party battery kaya like phottix? Siguro naman wala ng fake ang mga ganun?

thanks for bringing this into the topic  :o :o :o

delikado ito. maaaring nakaw. sana gumawa ang nikon and canon ng online verification system. hindi naman mahirap. just plug in you usb cable and the database will cross-check  ::) i suggest that everybody do this check...

sana automated yung pag register ng serial # ng cameras. like you said, pag kabit mo ng camera, send agad yung serial sa office ng nikon/canon. pag nasa record na nakaw or hot item, lalabas agad. kahit pag upload lang ng photos by memory card. nasa exif naman yung serial.

i think meron na post na ganitong program/site dito? problema kasi pag ginamitan ng software minsan sabog exif data. like photomatix.
maybe companies like canon/nikon should tie up with microsoft and apple para upload palang ng raw data, masesend agad. ><
