There are at least two things that grate:
- To be forced to sign up within 30 days seems unfriendly at best. Sony’s pro services ($99 a year) have no such time cutoff.
- Warranty extension is “outsourced to a 3rd party”. Not much of a confidence builder.
- Alaska and Hawaii residents are excluded. Is this just to save shipping costs?
- Registration of purchased products must be done within 30 days.Proof of purchase ought to be enough.
Still, a pro shooter has a lot of benefits that if needed are very worthwhile, such as 2 day turnaround, clean and check, loaners, and dedicated hotline and email support.
Fujifilm Professional Services (FPS) provides outstanding support for professional photographers. For only $499 per year, qualified GFX system owners can rest assured that they have Fujifilm's Professional Service on their side. Members in the GFX FPS Program will receive exclusive phone and email support, complimentary Check and Cleans, discounted and expedited services, and express repairs and loaners where applicable.
