Places That Buy Cameras


So, without further delay, here is our list of the top six (in alphabetical order) places to look at when seeking out your next piece of gear. Obviously, all these places offer gear well beyond just cameras and lenses too!




places that buy cameras



As far as digital cameras and lenses, its used department is my favorite of anyone on this list. Adorama has tons of used gear available at any given time, with new gear being added every day. Best of all, it has very, very good prices with some unbeatable deals popping up now and then.


eBay is where you stand to get the best possible price and have the largest variety of options at any given time for any given item. For some items, namely vintage lenses, cameras, and accessories as well as rare or niche items, eBay may be the only place where you stand a chance to find what you are looking for.


The two best things about MPB are its massive catalog of available products and its very good prices. For example, at the time of writing there are twenty Nikon Z6 (starting at $1059), thirty-four Canon 5D Mark IV (starting at $1959), and twenty-seven Sony a7R Mark III (starting at $1889) cameras available to purchase. I do not know of anywhere else, except eBay, with that kind of inventory.


There are a number of reasons you might find yourself upgrading your camera equipment. When it comes to a camera body, you might want need additional features like a larger sensor or capabilities like faster autofocus that an upgrade offers.


Finally, selling our used cameras and photography great is good for the planet. Reusing equipment and letting it have a second or third life helps reduce the amount of new cameras that need to be manufactured.


In order to get that used equipment inventory, B&H buys used photography gear from photographers. The process is very similar to KEH and MPB. You can get a free no obligation quote via their website, although you do have to provide an e-mail address.


One benefit of B&H is that they actually have physical stores. The NYC Superstore at 366 West 34th Street allows you to drop off gear for evaluation, which you might find more convenient if you happen to live in the NYC area.


The main advantage is that you can set the price for your product yourself, so there is a possibility that you will be able to get more money for your used camera equipment compared to selling via somewhere like MPB or KEH.


eBay is also a good option to consider for those who lives in parts of the world which do not have a lot of physical or online photography retailers. While people in some countries like the US, UK, and Europe may have a lot of different options for where they can sell used cameras, there are more limited options for regions of South America, Africa, Australia, and Asia.


The disadvantage is that they are quite a new service, so they have fewer users, meaning your gear might take longer to sell if it sells at all. However, I would expect this to improve over time as it becomes more well known. There are also few reviews for the service online, although I have not found anything negative about the site either.


Price wise, Canon 6D bodies currently list on Craigslist for between $400 and $600, which is roughly in line with other sites. Just be aware that many users will haggle on the price, so you might want to factor this in to your initial listing.


Craigslist is really designed for in person product exchange between local buyers and sellers, and you will definitely want to read their guide to avoiding scams and personal safety to keep yourself safe. Having such a large volume of users means that scam e-mails are definitely a problem on the platform.


MPB is similar to KEH in that they specialize in selling used photography equipment, but they have a wider remit, covering the USA, Europe, and the UK. They also sell video equipment and related accessories like bags, tripod and filters. Their equipment comes from photographers who are looking to sell used camera gear.


The disadvantage is that you have no control over the price. Obviously, these stores have to make a profit, and that usually comes about by buying items at a slight discount, and selling them at a slight premium, compared to a direct sale site like eBay.


If you are including accessories like a charger, battery, memory card, carrying case or original box, then make sure you include this in the description. If you are leaving out accessories that people might reasonably expect to be included, like a battery or battery charger, be sure to make this clear as well.


You may find that some of your equipment is difficult to sell or is just not worth much. You might then consider donating it to someone, selling it for display purposes, or finding a recycling program that can properly recycle it.


For older items, you might consider if they might be useful as display items. For example, I have a few old film cameras that are just not worth much. Your best options there may to be able to sell or donate them for display purposes. For example, some shops like to use old film cameras for display purposes. A local museum may also be interested in having it.


This website contains affiliate links to products and services that generate a small income to us if you choose to use them, at no cost to you. We only recommend products and services that we use ourselves, and will always link to relevant information, regardless of whether or not there is an affiliate program. See our Code of Ethics for more information.


An even bigger bonus is that you can ship your gear to them for free! If you accept their price quote, KEH will send you a prepaid label. Or, you can drop your gear off at their retail location. If you were quoted over $300 in value for your gear, they can come pick it up from your doorstep for free as well.


Camera gear very frequently finds its way to OfferUp, and many photographers peruse that platform when looking for used gear. OfferUp does very little regarding the sale itself, it simply offers an easy-to-use system to upload photos, set your price, and find buyers! You then decide whether you are willing to only sell locally or if shipping is an option, and take it from there.


With a name like GearFocus, you know exactly what this shop is about. GearFocus is a marketplace for photographers to sell their used equipment, great for those looking to list their equipment on a website that is dedicated to these particular products. The potential buyers that visit GearFocus are specifically looking for equipment, rather than the more general population of eBay, OfferUp, and Facebook.


If you just need to clear out some spring cleaning space, options such as KEH are a good idea. For those looking to make back as much as possible, marketplaces such as OfferUp and Facebook Marketplace might be the place to look.


There is a live chat feature on the website, as well as a used department. B&H maintains a wide selection of used cameras and other secondhand electronics. You can find sound systems, smartphones, and video equipment.


A bonus for regular shoppers is that they have a loyalty program. You can earn points on your purchases and later redeem them for discounts. However, there is a limited timeframe to do this. If you are not a regular B&H shopper, this may not be a benefit.


Unlike some of the retailers on the list, they sell their used equipment through eBay.Their camera and consumer digital department carry 35 mm and small format digital cameras. They also carry lenses from every major manufacturer in the world.


Precision Camera & Video is dedicated to providing excellent customer service and photographic education. They carry a wide array of cameras, lenses, lighting gear, accessories, and even printers and scanners.


They have expert technicians that use a ten-point rating system to inspect and grade gear. This way you can be sure that what you are purchasing is in excellent condition. KEH offers a 180-day warranty and a 14-day return policy.


The range of photographic equipment on MPB is vast. They are thousands of items passing through the marketplace every month. In addition to used cameras, they sell accessories like filters, camera batteries, and memory cards.


The images of the product should be close up enough and large enough for you to assess the condition of the body for nicks and scratches. There should be several pictures that show all sides of the camera. These should not be blurry or shot from too far away.


They also have storefront locations in Mississauga, Calgary, Ottawa, and Edmonton. Free shipping is available for non-oversized items up to 10 pounds. Shipping rates and methods for products that do not fall into this category can be found on their site.


At Art's Cameras Plus, we offer top value for in-demand cameras and accessories so you can feel confident selling or trading in what you don't use or need anymore. Art's staff knows equipment values! Our process is safer and simpler than you posting an ad and trying to field inquiries, then having to meet up with potentially dishonest strangers.
