    Where buy used cameras

    Hello,

    I have heard people mention a couple of mail order businesses which have used cameras for sale. I'm not confident gambling on eBay, so would like to acquire a camera from a more reputable photography business.
    I live in the North Midwest, and know about National Camera, and West Photo. The F-stop swap is coming up too, but I am not knowledgeable enough to know whether I'm buying a dud or not.

    Any recommendations appreciated.

    Try RITZCAM.COM, focus is on collectables, but they have a very large selection of users, easy to use web site. It is a real store here in Phoenix.

    KEH. Depending on what you're buying it may even be cheaper then Ebay.

    I'll have to say KEH again, I've had very good experiences with them.

    Nothing beats buying locally where you can actually tryout what you're going to buy. Checkout local camera stores, local paper, thrift stores, etc.

    I'll put in my 'vote' for KEH as well... I just purchased the (wrong) eye-level finder for my Hassy, gave them a quick call explaining my mistake & telling them the one I should have ordered. They were wonderful! They even discounted the eye-level finder (the right one) shipping for me!!!

    Not to mention the fact that I bought a "Bargain" graded finder whose glass is absolutely spotless! Dang! :o
