    Rather is whether you will be able to find any shop that accept trade in/2nd hand.

    i'm not sure of melbourne but in perth,i only manage to find 1 reputable camera shop and they only sell first hand.Other shops that sell camera stuffs are those photo labs.

    The price there is high for equipment,so if they accept 2nd hand,then congrats.Provided they don't anyhow quote.

    Go to Camera Exchange. They have it there in Melbourne. Not the one in Singapore.

    I have done sold some of my old stuffs. As long as your equipments is well maintain, you will get some good price out of it. Plus the exchange rates is towards your favour.

    Other than Camera Exchange, these are the camera shops in Melbourne:

    - Horizon Photographic www.hp1.com.au
    - Camera Lane alan22@bigpond.com.au
    - Photographic Warehouse photow@tpg.com.au


    Alternatively, you can alway put on Ebay Australia. Then state you allow pick up in person......maybe that way u get the best price.



    Good luck,

    Sorry, din realise

    Well, I thought selling privately would have fetch a betta price than trade in price from shops.

    Coz if you can't find a buyer for ur equipments....u can alway sell to the shops right?

    I normally sell my stuffs in this classified: http://www.tradingpost.com.au/
