Hey everyone,

Currently I have a bunch of Olympus equipment and some Nikon equipment. I am thinking of selling my Olympus stuff and using the money to buy more Nikon stuff.

Question: What is the best venue to sell used camera equipment?

To get the most money you need to sell here on DPC, Ebay or Craigslist.

If you sell to a dealer they will want a substantial discount from retail so they can turn a profit.

I see you are from Texas, but you don't say where. Houston Camera Exchange and the Camera Co-op (both in Houston) sell used gear. They used to take consignments. You'd get a little more with consignments than selling it outright to the dealer.

Digital cameras older than a couple of years won't have much value in most cases. Lenses hold their value better.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

I would try to sell them here on DPC first.

Another site that has a very active buy and sell forum us Fredmiranda.com. I think you need to be a paying member or there's a small fee to sell something.

Thanks guys.

I really appreciate it.

(BTW, scarbrd, I am in the Dallas area)

I've been pretty successful selling stuff here. Also, Amazon isn't a bad place to sell.

I second the FM recommendation.

coming from another Oly owner (who is thinking of jumping ship and going to Canon), I've had good luck with the buy/sell forum here

<edit>

If I decide to stick with Oly I might be interested in your 50-200... PM me and let me know what you're asking for it...

-Mike

I might've been interested in the Olympus stuff if I didn't buy a Rebel XT just this past weekend. I was seriously looking at the E-510 for a while.

I can't find the classified section here. Anyone know how to get there to buy or sell used gear? Thanks.

It's in the Members' section.

Oh, so pay $5 to get in? Is it a good place to sell a Nikon 5000 Coolscan scanner you think? Thanks.

I can vouch for the FM system. There's far more people on there than the DPChallenge equivalent so you should be able to sell your stuff faster for a better price.

I bought a 5d2, 70-200 2.8 IS, 27-70 L and a 50 1.4 all on FM for great prices and form great people.

FM= heartily recommended.

You could also try the Flea Market forum on DGrin.com. User accounts at Digital Grin are free.

How odd, that after a gap of nearly a year and a half, you both spotted this spam within a few seconds of each other!

Or am I missing something?

The funny thing is, if Mick didn't see what was posted before it was removed then saw the next posts he'd think he was reported for spamming.

Same here. It's pretty active, but there is a fee.

i sure hope he sold his gear as he originally posted this over four years ago.
