EBAY!!!!!!!!!

If you “sell” your camera to a camera store, they will only be giving you a small cut of the sale price. You’re not really selling your equipment, more like you’re supplying it to other people at a discount to sell it for their own gain.

It’s not hard to list a camera or lens on eBay. Take good photos of it, give a general description of appearance and function, write the name of the product correctly in the title, put a $1 starting price and it will go for fair market price every time. The same people bidding up eBay auctions are shopping at KEH and other camera stores, so there’s not really any difference in price. If eBay is too “hard,” then why not try the classifieds on this website? I guarantee you that you’ll get more for your camera than a camera store will pay.
