Now available on over 90 cameras and lenses, plus hundreds of accessories
As a company of photographers, we understand how important it is to be able to rely on your gear. To ensure you can be confident in your purchase, we now offer the Wex Warranty across a wide range of items, including popular bodies like the Canon 5D IV and Nikon Z 6, plus lenses, tripods, lighting and more.
For selected cameras and lenses, the Wex Warranty offers an extra 12 months of cover on top of the existing manufacturer warranty, while a range of accessories and lighting items come with up to 10 years of cover. We even offer lifetime cover on selected hard cases and cables.
Offered in association with our sister company Fixation, the UK’s leading photographic repair specialist, the Wex Warranty means we will pick up the bill to fix any issues that arise within the specified terms. The full list of items covered can be found here.
