    Default Where in SG can i sell my bridge camera?

    Hi guys,

    im new here, and have been trying to sell my Canon Powershot sx50hs.
    May I know where can i sell it in sg?
    Tried to sell it online but nobody is interested i guess as it is a more than 3 years old camera.
    So im turning it to shops instead.

    Thanks

    Sell it to the shops? They will offer you even at a lower price, if that works for you.

    Some suggestions in this thread: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1493461

    Just be aware that you'll likely be quoted way less than what you're asking for. Maybe $80-$100+? If they even take in bridge cams. Shops need to cover overheads (rent/staff/etc) and turn a profit. You'll pretty much always get a better rate by selling on your own, but you need to have the stomach to lower your price realistically if it's not selling.

    E.g. If you check the marketplace section, those serious about selling, they tend to repost their WTS thread over a period of time, with a revised price until it is sold.

    ---------------------

    Just did a quick check for ya, the model that replaced the SX50, the SX60 goes for $650 new, and $500 used (last year). So there's little surprise your SX50 is not moving at $500.

    Your camera is not the 'latest version' in the series, which generally gets it's price battered in the 2nd hand market when the 'latest' arrives

    Noticed that you are already on Carousell... a search there showed there are some Canon SX50 for sale 230-300+ but still available after few months.

    (hint: I found the newest version with full local warranty in reputable camera shops at a price a bit higher than your offer price)

    Guess you have to lower your expectations... good luck for your sale

    Shanette, clubsnap B&S is probably the best place to sell 2nd hand cameras in sg. do a search here for previous sales of the canon sx50 for the current 2nd hand market price. (hint: closer to $300)
