General Conditions

Right of Withdrawal 

You have the right to cancel your order up to 14 days after receipt without giving any reason. After cancellation you have another 14 days to return your product. You will then be credited with the full order amount excluding shipping costs. The costs for returning from your home to the my store are for your own account. If a shipping company is used, these costs are approximately 7.25 per package (in the Netherlands) + the option for insurance that is in line with the purchase value of the product. Consult the website of your carrier for the exact rates. 

If you make use of your right of withdrawal, the product needs be returned to the store with all accessories supplied and in its original condition and packaging it came in. To exercise this right, please contact us via . We will then refund the order amount due within 14 days after registering your return, provided that the product has been returned in good order. 

As the place of delivery (for physical products) I use the address that has been given to me. After the order has been processed by me, the order will be shipped or delivered as soon as possible, but in any case within a maximum period of 30 days. Physical products are being sent by PostNL with an insurance value in line with the value of the product. See their website for delivery rates outside of The Netherlands.


Where possible I try to respond immediately and in any case within 14 days on your complaint. If I consider your complaint to be well-founded, I will try to find a reasonable solution. 

If something went wrong and you suffered damage, this is ofcourse very annoying. We will try to find a solution in mutual consultation. Despite this, my liability for damage resulting from a tort, an attributable failure to comply with our agreement or otherwise, is excluded (unless otherwise stated in this article). 

My liability is in any case always limited to direct damage. Indirect damage (such as reputation damage, lost profit, consequential damage, missed savings, etc.) is never for my account. 

My full liability is also – always and everywhere – limited to the (last) invoice sent to you, with a maximum of EUR 1000 at all times. 

I am not bound by any obligation if I do so, if hindered as a result of force majeure. Force majeure includes:
pandemic, epidemic, quarantine measures, government measures, strikes in public transport, car trouble, theft, a defective memory card or film carrier, technical failures, etc. 

If a provision in these general terms and conditions appears to be invalid or voidable, the remainder of the terms and conditions will remain valid. 


With all the Leica Rangefinder bodies that you buy from us is a 6month limited warranty included. This warranty does not apply on SLR cameras or lenses. SLR cameras & lenses are sold as they are specified in the product description (as is). If you are not happy with your item once it arrives, see the paragraph about “Right of Withdrawal”. We spend time to make sure the what you buy is in perfect working order before you buy it, which means most of them have seen service prior to selling. We make sure all items are cleaned, checked, aligned and calibrated to specification (unless stated otherwise).

The Leica Rangefinder that you buy will be warranted for 6 months, starting on the sold date that is specified on your invoice. If you need to claim warranty, you need to show this invoice. The warranty only applies to the person the camera has been sold to directly from Camera Obscura Elburg.

Warranted are:

  • General working of the camera
  • Shutter speeds within 1/3rd of a stop that is specified on the shutterdial.
  • Rangefinder patch visibility
  • Working of a possible present lightmeter at the time of purchase

Not warranted is:

  • Rangefinder alignment (sometimes a small bump make these go out of alignment)
  • Breaking of the viewfinder/rangefinder glass
  • Damage caused by falling or bumping of the camera
  • Water (damp) damage
  • The start of haze in the viewfinder

These general terms and conditions and our agreement are governed by Dutch law.
