There’s no mistaking it - photography is hot right now. With more and more people becoming interested in taking better photos, the market for used camera gear has exploded. From point-and-shoot cameras to pro-grade DSLRs to lenses of all types and sizes, the chances are that if you’ve got quality, well-cared-for gear, someone out there is willing to pay you for it.
So, why not kill two birds with one stone and make another photographer’s day by selling your gear and making yourself happy by investing that money into some new stuff for yourself? The question is, where should you sell your equipment? We think the answer is KEH.
Is It Money vs. Convenience? Not Necessarily...
When people think about selling their old camera equipment, the first venues that come to mind are probably places like Craigslist and eBay. After all, you get to set your price, and that price may be more than what you might be offered by KEH.
But, you shouldn’t think about the process of selling in a vacuum. Instead, think about all the extra expenses that add up. On eBay, for example, you have to pay a commission on every product sold. On Craigslist, you might have to foot the bill for shipping and insurance. And there are practical considerations as well. Think about the time involved in creating a listing, writing descriptions, taking and posting pictures, and answering questions about your gear. What if your item, for whatever reason, just doesn’t sell? Or, even worse, what if the buyer decides they no longer want it and back out of the deal or return it to you for a refund after a week or two?
None of these scenarios factor in when you sell your gear to KEH. You don’t pay a penny for shipping, you know upfront how much you can get for your gear, and KEH never backs out of a deal. So not only is working with KEH convenient, but because there are no associated fees or commissions, you might just end up making the same amount of money as you would going through a less reputable vendor.

There are plenty of other reasons that make selling to KEH the best choice. After leading the industry for 35 years, KEH has the trust of photographers worldwide and the track record to warrant that trust. When you sell to KEH, you get some excellent perks too:
You might be able to sell your gear elsewhere, but not with the kind of peace of mind that comes with working with the industry leader in used camera gear. If you’re itching to upgrade your collection of photography equipment, avoid the hassle of trying to sell someplace else and see what KEH can do for you!
“Here’s a fun fact for you: A year before I laid the foundation for PhotographyTalk.com I was in the final months of selling my last company and learning photography at the same time. I had a serious case of gear acquisition syndrome. I was talking to master photographer and friend Bryan Peterson who told me about this great site called KEH where you could buy quality used gear at a nice savings from new. The idea of this instantly clicked with me, so I decided I would give KEH a shot. I started off with a Sigma 10-20mm that was listed as LN (Like New). When it came in, it was IMO new. It looked it, and performed like new. It even came in original box. At that moment, I felt like I just found a secret insiders club for photographers! I then picked up a Nikon 70-200mm and shortly after that a Nikon 24mm (BTW… ended up becoming my favorite lens, this thing is amazingly sharp!). All in all, I saved money without compromising quality of gear. Since then, I’ve become a huge “go buy used” from KEH fan. If you haven’t worked with them, do what I did, start off with a simple lens, when you get the lens and you see how much you saved and the condition… you’ll appreciate my enthusiasm for the brand.”
