    Hi

    Just wondered if there was a forum for selling cameras / equipment anywhere on Avforums that I've missed? Just that I've got a camera to sell and my experiences selling things on these forums have always been excellent.

    Sorry if this question is out of place at all.

    Cheers

    Si

    My own experience has been that the AV Forum classifieds suck. I have sold a couple of things and advertised several with no suvccess: these latter things that sold immediately via other places. At AV I got time-waster hassles and low offers, even though stuff was well priced for a simple and quick sale. I prefer not to deal with exploitative buyers.

    I find that ebay, fredmiranda.com and photography-on-the.net are excellent. The latter couple highly recommended but, as always, check peoples sales and contribution records.

    Thing about the latter two is that both forums are 100% photography forums. Things that get sold on this forum are much more varied from speakers to mobile phones but not too much camera gear i have to say. I actually sold my old dears Burberry handbag here :laugh: and a Nikon D100 with no bother at all. I don't actually look that much in the sales section here, i'm sure i'll have missed some good buys

    I missed those cards you were selling not so long ago condyk on photography-on-the.net

    I think that's a bit harsh condyk. I've both bought and sold some good bargains on the AV Forums classifieds. I usually advertise them on here so people have a good chance of getting a bargain. Failing that I go to Ebay.

    I have my crumpler bag on the classifieds at the moment as I'm going for a larger one. Someone into photograpy may well be interested and they would get a superb condition bag at a good price. Having said that they would need to look on the classifieds to see it.

    Maybe some form of link from other forums to the classifieds would be good Sean?
