This page is made up of two sections. General Terms and Conditions then detailed Legal.

It covers using enlight photo websites, buying our gear, our unique TryAtHome™ guarantee and more.

enlight photo websites” refers to www.enlightphotopro.com, www.ioshutter.com, www.orbisflash.com, www.friocoldshoe.com and any website wholly administered and managed by enlight photo Ltd.

Terms & Conditions

Guarantees

“I am 100% sure you’re going to LOVE my inventions… tens of thousands of photographers worldwide, like you, do! That’s why I back that up with a no-quibbles money-back guarantee I call TryAtHome. Here’s the lowdown below…” James

Our “Try At Home” guarantee means that you can return your enlight photo gear to us within 14 days if you don’t absolutely love it, subject to the following conditions:

Your order must be un-damaged and in saleable condition with all packaging. This offer does not include return shipping fees; we suggest using a tracked service, preferably tracked, traced and insured, as we can only refund you when we receive your returned order safely.

If you buy an orbis® and orbis arm System and decide to return just the orbis arm with the “TryAtHome” guarantee, the orbis arm is valued at its listed MSRP in your currency.

Manufacturing Guarantee

All enlight photo accessories are also covered with a one-year guarantee against manufacturing defects.

Returns Policy

No tolerance policy regarding Fraud

We will report any attempted fraudulent use of any enlight photo website to the relevant authorities closest to you.  Any purchases through any enlight photo website that are deemed to be fraudulent at the sole discretion of enlight photo, whether intentional or not, will be cancelled at your own risk.

Some sections of this website represent a shop; if you’re not the kind of person who would shoplift please remember that fraudulent use of a website ordering system for material gain is theft.

Credit Card fraud in particular is a crime that is being committed daily over the internet, that we and our partners at PayPal treat very seriously.

International Orders

We deliver our gear around the world to countries served by our distribution centres, covering the USA, Canada, the European Community, Australasia and beyond. Take a look at the enlight photo Store Finder page for a link to our official Dealers and Distributors.

Please read the following before listing an item with the name “orbis®”, “frio™” or  “ioShutter™” for sale online. This message/page provides awareness of the USA Trademark Laws applying to enlight photo trademarks registered in the United States.

Trademark and Gray Market Warning Notice


enlight photo, an New Zealand-owned company not related to foreign suppliers, has registered the ORBIS Trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), and has recorded these marks with the United States Customs Service for legal import restrictions in accordance with 19 C.F.R. Part 133. The trademarks for FRIO and IOSHUTTER are claimed by enlight photo and pending registration.

Under Section 526 (a) of the US Tariff Act of 1930, the importation of any foreign-origin merchandise bearing the ORBIS, FRIO or IOSHUTTER trademarks, without the written consent of enlight photo, is unlawful and prohibited. Unauthorized importations are subject to possible seizure and forfeiture by the United States Customs Service.

enlight photo is actively working with US Customs to enforce these trademarks aggressively. enlight photo will also pursue all of its available remedies for injunctive relief and damages against any companies or persons who import, distribute, sell or otherwise deal in gray market merchandise bearing these trademarks.
