How to sell your camera, lenses and gear to get the most money

By Anton D. Nagy December 28, 2018, 1:00 pm

One of the main criteria we classify smartphones here at Pocketnow, when it comes to multimedia, is the camera performance. You know the saying: “the best camera is the one you happen to haven on you“. Since smartphones have come a long way when it comes to photography, we rely more and more on our mobile devices to create memories, to immortalize a moment in time. Most of the times you can’t simply get back in the moment or turn back time, so it is crucial that your photos are on par with your expectations.

Happily, in this day and age, most mid-range and flagship smartphones satisfy basic photography needs. So what should you do with your camera, lenses, and gear? They’re a pain to carry around. You’re probably going to want to sell. On the other hand, if you’re a professional photographer, or a prosumer, you will likely want to  not only hold on to them, but also diversify your “collection”. Well, Swappa is the place you should definitely check out!


About two months ago we told you that Swappa is not only the place to buy and sell smartphones, but also cameras, lenses, and even laptops. The folks over at Swappa have a solid “no junk” strategy, which means that they heavily scrutinize all products listed on the website. This means that you are certain that what you are paying for is exactly what you will get.

Now, whether you are looking for a DSLR body, accessories, lenses, action cameras or, even 360 cameras, chances are you’ll find what you are looking for on Swappa. Brands like Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Tamron, Leica, and Pentax, just to name a few, are already well known if you are passionate about photography.

If you want to sell your camera, lenses, or gear, Swappa is the place for you because you simply get the most money for what you are selling. Opposed to other websites which charge you heavily, Swappa has no seller fees, unless you want your product to be promoted or featured. Opposed to eBay for example, which charges a 10% seller fee, on Swappa, it is the buyer who is paying a fee which is fixed, and significantly lower than the fees on eBay.

You simply create the listing for you camera, lenses, gear, accessories, or whatever camera-related toys you’re selling, and when your item sells you get paid. That simple. Head over to their website and see how simple it is to sell your camera and/or accessories.

We thank Swappa for sponsoring this article!
