One of my friend was thinking to buy a Nikon camera which has been used for 6 months! He is confused on buying it as its not the new one, though its really good! Is it a good choice to buy a second hand camera?
Is it good choice to buy a second hand camera?

I've never bought anything like that second-hand, so not sure. I always worry that something might be wrong with it, is he able to see and try it out before buying?

Two of my Nikon's have been purchased second-hand from reputable dealers, as well as several lenses and accessories. Never have had a problem. I probably wouldn't buy from Craigslist or eBay, but H&M Photo, or local dealers would not give me pause.

If it's from someone you know and trust you should be fine. I would ask to be able to take a few photos with it, with the buyer there and be able to view them (on a computer monitor or something) to make sure it works properly.
Also something to keep in mind is how many "clicks" has that camera had? Camera's shutter generally only last so many clicks. They are all rated, I would look up the specific brand and what it's rated then see how many clicks it's had. Generally if the camera is only a few months old, you are probably not near the clicks it's listed as. But if someone does alot of sports photos like I do, that can easily take 1000 pics per game/event could have used alot already
