So, you want to upgrade your camera, but you don't know the first thing about reselling your photography equipment in place of new ones. There are several methods to do so, with some being more effective than others. It all depends on what you want to upgrade, and to what extent.

If you have a great camera body and all you need to do is to upgrade the lens, you are in luck. All you need to do is simply to sell your lens and purchase either a brand new one, or a used lens that is at a higher value than the old one. Because many parts of the camera can be interchanged with others, you can mix brands and models as long as it all fits together and functions properly.

Upgrade Your Camera in its Entirety

Maybe you purchased a camera, bag, tripod, lens, and any number of accessories five years ago, and wish to replace it all with brand new gear. The trick is to be able to find someone who is interested in purchasing all of the above items and not just the lens or the camera. The best way to do this is to contact camera resellers who will look at a number of different types of photography equipment.

These camera resellers can take a look at the information you provide them and give you a price quote based on the ages, models, and conditions of the gear. You can shop around for a few other quotes or choose to accept this price if it meets your needs. After selling to the buyer, you can then go shopping again and upgrade your camera gear to the next level.
