Yeah the fair value of stuff is pretty well understood....eBay, fm forums listings etc. Low ball offers will come...if you need to sell something quickly and it's a low demand item, you might take a 10 haircut to get it sold, but anything that is reasonably in demand should have enough offers to push towards a fair price.

Woo hoo, one of my favorite camera shops (Cameta Camera) comes through for me yet again. I wasn't expecting this until Tuesday leaving me without a lens this weekend but USPS just dropped this beauty off.

Also got my extra battery, so I think two batteries should be fine and even better news they fit in the Think Tank DSLR battery holder with a nice snug fit.

USPS is solid in terms of getting to you quickly these days. Congrats!

Sadly i found the best way to do it is to go through past items and price accordingly. It's difficult because asking price doesn't always equal selling price. I usually price mine around the lower end.

I've sold a pretty good amount of gear here and have also started selling some on FM. It's really quite easy.

First.....don't sell back to B&H or Adorama. As someone else mentioned, they will only give you ~50% of what you'd get by selling here or on FM.

Second....Don't over think it. Just do a search or two here and on FM for the items you are going to sell. Then list your's for about the average price of what you results yield. It's really easy.

Once listed just sit back and wait til someone makes an offer. Most transactions are smooth and quick with only a minimal amount of haggling through a couple PM's. I usually get a few lowball offers which I politely decline. I'd recommend paypal non-gift payments only. easy peasy!

Also protect yourself and send everything with insurance. It's more costly, I just sent my a6500 up to Boston with shipping and insurance ($8 for shipping, $14 for insurance). Just want to safeguard yourself as you're shipping expensive gear at the mercy of the post office.

Thanks for the advice and encouragement about selling my gear. I do tend to worry about the details too much. Once I rephotograph everything I want to sell, I'll provide a list here just in case someone here is interested.

I sell most of my stuff through eBay, less hassles, and top Dollar even after fees. Amazon could be another place to sell, but since I have no feedback there, I'd have to build some. They don't do PayPal, and I need PayPal.

If anyone wants to know my formula for top Dollar, you're welcome to PM me, I just don't want to post publicly and blow up my own tricks :-P

$14 for insurance? That's a great price. How much was covered? I hate dealing with USPS since the workers are rude. I prefer UPS but it costs more.

$1,035? I always Insure for the selling price, but I was under theninpressions that insurance was a fixed cost and scales with the amount you insure.

Set up an account, get a food scale, and you'll simply do of at the post office, no lines. Reason why I absolutely prefer USPS is because of the speed. When a customer received an item fast, they are happy, and less likely to cancel an item that arrives so fast!

The post office also offers a lot of free supplies...

Anyone in this august body pre-order the FE100-400GM?
I bet Eriet and TMaG have.


You know I actually am confused on it. I am very surprised at the Tam 150-600v1 So I am more wondering if i should clean out the 55 1.8 90 macro and 70-300 and just get the 70-200 2.8

I do have it on a request to test from sony pro :-)

Gene something else that might have been stated (my work week, trying to stay caught up with posts), they pay then you ship.
It's a trust thing. Though to one purchaser I did ship a lens and told him 'try before you buy' but that was me and with no guarantees.
FM does get hit with spammers/con artists but I think that is rare rare rare. Communication can even lead up to phone calls. In fact I'll
be speaking with a man about the 500 IS ii this evening. We began a business relationship via FM that has continued beyond PMs.
But the trust thing is on them since they pay first!
When I sell something I always sit on the item and wait to hear they are happy. If not (so far hasn't happened) they ship back and I refund
via PayPal, all super easy. That way I keep my rating up for my next transaction.

Well at least this is not a bird :)
Kinda for Eddie or anyone else who might be interested in a campervan and how to carry two
12 foot kayaks and not pull a trailer or climb onto a roof.
You can see the folded up kayaks on the left Slide-master. Both slides go into the van or outside the van
making getting to store items easy :)
OK, I promise no more pics of the camper!

And here is Poof on south Holston Lake via the RX100v

Those slide master units look excellent

From a purely selfish reason - please keep posting!

I think on this forum, here is the safest bet to post non photography stuff. People in here are very easy :)

And if its in a picture you post, its not even non-photography related :P
