Sell Photography Equipment

If you have a few cameras, bags, tripods, or lenses lying around the home or office, you may be in a good position to sell photography equipment. Most people think the easiest way to "get rid of" their camera products is to either donate them to a non-profit organization and write it off for taxes or simply give it to a neighborhood kid and accept the losses. However, selling camera equipment can be profitable and enjoyable if you only know how to do it.

There are many online companies who are designed provide a camera appraisal and hand out checks or cash for used cameras, especially accessories and lenses by top brands and models. Any person can contact these camera buyers and ask for a quote, whether the equipment is 20 years or 1 month old. Some discerning buyers only wish for top of the line cameras that are only a few years old, so check to see what they are looking for.

How Much Can You Get if you Sell Photography Equipment?

The price quote you receive after giving the camera appraiser the information on your equipment varies depending on the current demand and market for certain types of cameras, or which top brands are valued higher. Digital cameras may fetch a great price because they can be resold quickly and at a higher price than some 35mm ones. However, some previously expensive film cameras can be sold at very good percentage rates to the prices when they were new and first bought.

To sell photography equipment without a hitch, we recommend you take a few moments with a pen and paper and write out in detail all the information you know regarding the age, make, model, and history of the pieces in question. If you can see any visible scratches or know of a few flaws in the mechanics of the camera, do not leave these out. Total honesty is invaluable when performing an appraisal, and the buyer will appreciate it.
