Si usted compra un paquete de software como Photoshop, y aparece una nueva versión, por lo general es muy probable que obtenga descuentos cuando se actualiza. Sin embargo cuando su nueva cámara después de un año o dos pasa a ser un modelo obsoleto, debe conformarse con un (a menudo ridículo) precio de venta en el mercado de segunda mano.
Estas depreciaciones elevadas también son muy molestas para los profesionales. Por ese mismo motivo, Phase One pretende premiar a sus clientes con un servicio de “protección de inversiones”. Si en un tiempo determinado realiza una actualización de un cuerpo, respaldo u objetivo, de gama superior, se beneficiará desde un 50 hasta un 90 por ciento de descuento en el precio de compra del nuevo producto. Su nueva política entra inmediatamente en vigor, y estará disponible para los clientes que realicen sus compras en los distribuidores designados.
