eBay is a popular marketplace for all kinds of photo gear, from the newest digital cameras to rare antiques and accessories. And since photography is one of the most popular and accessible hobbies in the world, I find that my company’s consignment sellers, called FoundValue eSpecialists(TM), are often asked by clients to sell camera equipment.
As is often the case with consumer electronics, the technology is steadily improving while prices are dropping, leading many shoppers to eBay in search of newer models at bargain prices. There is still a market for digital cameras that are a few years old or have fewer than 2 megapixels; however, prices are relatively low. I advise our eSpecialists to research the specific camera model online before accepting it for sale. Best-selling brands include: Canon, Fuji, Kodak, Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Sony.
When creating a title for a camera listing, include the following information as keywords: Brand name; Model name or number; Resolution (number of megapixels); Optical zoom (2x, 3x, etc.); Amount of memory; Format (SLR, Compact “Point-and-Shoot”, etc.); Lenses (make and sizes); Memory card, carrying case and other accessories; and NIB if New In Box.
