    Who's Buying Cameras

    Hi,

    Stepping in from the blizzard (or 'Terrible Storm', whatever we're calling it) to drop a quick post. Does anyone know of a good place to sell used cameras? I have three I'm trying to sell in an effort to downsize a little. I've tried the obvious ones, but I guess if anyone knows vendors/buyers in New England, preferably Maine.

    Thanks.
    Jim

    Honestly, you're likely do get more selling here, at rangefinderforum.com, largeformatphotography.info/forum, ebay, etc than at a dealer. Even craigslist would likely be better.

    I understand wanting to sell locally and painlessly, I'm sure people here would love to hear more about what you have (posted in the correct place, etc - not trying to turn this thread into a ad)

    There is also ebay. But I would not be limiting your sales to the local market unless it is a PITA to ship.

    Not terribly close to Maine, but the PHSNE (Photographic Historical Society of New England) auction is this weekend on Sunday in Wakefield, MA you can read about it at www.phsne.org.
    No membership is required to buy or sell.

    Thanks for the feedback. I tried Craigslist and KEH, and a handful of others. KEH, B&H, Adorama..all those guys just don't see a market for used film cameras, I guess. I tried to post an ad here, but you have to be a subscriber. Maybe when the IRS gives me my refund this year....

    I may try eBay, just sell them as a 'lot' or something.

    I can post what I have but as was previously mentioned I didn't want to hijack the thread, as it were. I'm only selling them if I can because I'm downsizing a little and these three were the least used objects.

    Ricohflex VII TLR. Everything appears to work as it should. The original case on it is quite faded and torn at the snaps.

    Kodak Brownie Cresta II.

    Canon Canonet 19 35mm rangefinder.

    Everything's in good shape, save a little yellowing on the Brownie crank. Glass is fine, etc. If you're interested, feel free to shoot a message with an offer. I can ship it/them.

    Not to be incredibly rude, but there is a market for used film cameras, just not the ones you're selling, except maybe the Ricohflex. The other two are $20 cameras give or take. That's why the dealers weren't interested. The Canonet was made by the tens of thousands - the brownie, even more. If you want to get an idea of what they might sell for, take a look at Shopgoodwill.com and Ebay.
