    If I sell everything

    Where would I do the best? That includes my cameras and all my darkroom equipment. I am thinking maybe KEH or B&H, but also here. I am facing a medical decision maker. Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted. Don

    I can't help you with the equipment. But I hope everything works out medically. Best regards, Alan

    Selling up is sad news, but guess you have a decision to make.

    Depends how motivated you are to get the absolute best price. Probably here is as good as anywhere. Selling through commercial outlets is probably easy but won't bring the most $ and breaking up into small lots on ebay probably has potential for highest return but is hassle. If its good kit, as I'm sure it is, and money isn't the prime motivator, why not contact the local colleges where photog courses are held and see if you can advertise there. I always think selling kit to someone you know is going to use it has more satisfaction.

    All the best, Simon

    I think it depends how much work you are willing to put into it. I would put the crown jewels up here first. If they don't go for a fair price, off to eBay. KEH would be the easiest, but probably the lowest return.

    Definitely agree with this. eBay may look better on the surface but you have fees in their system + Paypal, so net will likely be less, plus you have to go off of the actual "Sold Listings" for price estimates versus doing a current search for what is available (i.e.: hasn't sold yet). This throws people off at first, thinking that if there are 5 up there with Buy-It-Now prices at $200, they will get $200 for theirs.

    If you live in/reasonably near a larger city, you could try putting up a Craigslist post, although I don't know if it is used much in your area.

    Try here first with a nice list and clear photographs. If that fails then eBay has to be the best place. The audience is massive.

    Agree. Write a short description and take a few pics, and place it in the APUG classifieds. KEH, B&H, Adorama, and all the big outlets, will give you about 50% of what they will sell it for.

    Sorry to learn about the reason to sell. Don't discount local markets through Kijiji, UsedOttawa and Craiglist either. I've bought and sold successfully through these channels. Some real bargains for me as a buyer but also realistic prices both as a buyer and as a seller. With good pictures posted it might work and it saves you the hassle of packaging and mailing. I might be able to help you with some darkroom items if you decide to sell.
