What to Consider When Buying Used DSLR Cameras
It’s easy to purchase DSLR Cameras at Jumping Jack Cash and we’ve always got some great inventory for sale. Keep the following tips in mind to get the best camera for your money.
- Condition –DSLR Cameras are often used in outdoor environments, so a little wear is to be expected. We take great care to refurbish, price and merchandise our cameras properly to ensure customer satisfaction!
- Test the Camera – Taking a few practice pictures and then examining them to make sure they come in clearly without sensor scratches is advised. Take a photo of a white wall and review the image to check for sensor damage. To check the auto focus, attach a lens you already own (or know to be perfectly functional) and snap a few pictures.
- Dead Pixels – Typically an issue more common in older cameras, a dead pixel looks like a black dot on the LCD screen. In some cases, this may translate to the digital file as well. Some cameras have a cleaning program built in that can be run to fix this issue.
- Check the Picture Counter –Since most DSLR Cameras allow you to check the number of pictures taken thus far, check the count to get a feel for how much life the current shutter has left.
- Other Components – Lastly, be sure to check the basics such as buttons, connectors, and the flash.
Tips on Pawning or Selling DSLR Cameras
Modern digital and DSLR cameras can sell for a good deal of money. Follow these tips to maximize the amount of cash you get to put in your pocket.
- Film Cameras – The digital cameras market is currently very active, while the film camera market is a bit more niche. As film has declined in popularity, fewer businesses are offering film processing and developing services as well. Understand that these factors have depreciated the value of many film cameras.
- Lenses – Before selling a DSLR camera, locate all the lenses you have for it. Lenses are highly sought after, with some being worth more than the cameras they attach to. Locating all the lens caps can further increase sale value.
- Memory Cards – Preload the camera with a memory card. This simple step increases overall value since you’re bringing a complete package to the table. Plus, it allows for easy testing as well. Since memory card compatibility changes depending on the camera, this gesture removes a lot of guess work while putting more cash in your pocket.
- Charging Cords – As with any electronic product, include all charger cords and needed peripherals. Charging cords are especially valuable, since many brands use proprietary cables or connectors. Replacing some original manufacturer parts can be challenging. When missing this essential part, the camera is hard to sell. Your camera is more marketable if its battery is fully charged before bringing it in.
- Packaging and Paperwork – Increase sale or pawn value by presenting a like-new product with important information such as the instruction manual, any remaining warranties, and manufacturer contact information. To prove ownership, locate the product serial number and ensure that it is legible.
