Consider buying a used camera
If it’s time to upgrade your camera equipment but you’re operating on a budget you may want to consider buying used camera gear. Used camera equipment can be a great way to have better technology at your fingertips while keeping more money in your wallet. Additionally, buying online can expand your selection of used equipment. Especially if you’re like me and live in a town that has zero camera stores within driving distance.
Think about trading in your old gear
Another way to fund your new equipment is to sell or trade in your old gear. Many of the websites below offer free quotes for your existing gear. Shop around for the best offers to make sure you get the most cash for your old equipment. Remember, you’re not likely to get back what you paid initially, but you can take a big bite out of the cost of a new camera by trading in your old one.
Check multiple sites
When you’re shopping around for prices and trade-in offers be sure to check a variety of sites. Don’t just base your budget on what you paid for your equipment or the going prices on Amazon. By checking offers at multiple locations you’ll get a sense of the true value of what you’re looking to buy and what you’re looking to sell. If you’re looking for vintage cameras or equipment don’t forget to check out our Etsy store, Retrospective66co!
