Somewhere out there, there exist piles and piles of used camera equipment just waiting to be sold. In garages, on top of shelves, and in attics, these wonderful artistic tools needlessly collect dust. Their owners either have forgotten about them, or have no idea what to do with them!

If the above paragraph describes the state of your used camera equipment, why not do something about it? There are many individuals and companies out there who are eager to purchase older camera models or simply those that have not been used in a year. Photo-philes and photography artists are always on the lookout for previously used cameras, used camera lenses, and other items which are not at full price but which are definitely still useable.

Students and Novices Love Used Camera Equipment!

When a photographer is first starting out, she usually does not have the experience (nor the funds) to purchase the most expensive brand of camera at a new price. In arts college, many students prefer to purchase used cameras to save money for the present and for the future. After all, she probably won't be purchasing a new camera until she graduates and begins making her art her living as well.

Those who have never held a camera in their life work in the same way. A great idea to introduce children into the art of photography is to sell their parents a used camera rather than have them hem and haw over the price and expensive accidents that may happen if a new camera is purchased. Thus, for those studying the craft or for those just being introduced to it, the word "used" is the term to watch for.
