How NOT to conduct an online auction.

1. If you're going to use a video or pictures make sure you light up the unit and don't shake the camera.
2. When you post that the unit was only entered to shoot the video/pictures, don't show the unit being opened with a key in the video.
3. Post more than 4 pictures, especially if the first one is of the outside of the unit with the door closed.
4. Saying, "Here's pretty awesome unit" is a written guarantee and no longer your opinion, you can be sued if it does not turn out to be an awesome unit to the buyer.

The person who took the photos didn't use a flash.

Oooooh, I though you were talking about Adobe flash not working on the webpage. BTW, video cameras don't use flash.

Modern camcorders use the same LED for both continuous lighting and flash.   :sign0081:

An LED is not going to light up that storage unit, spot lights are needed.  :021:
