Hey guys, I was wondering how hard is it to sell camera gears here? Because I'm about to put up a brand new Canon 1D Mark II "N" version for sale. It's going to be about almost $500 cheaper than retail price and if you live locally, I will even give you an extra discount.

    wave.gif Welcome to Dgrin! The flea market is great. Provide some references and creds and you should have no troubles! Photos of the gear help, too.

    Thanks for you reply Andy. This will be my first camera gear sell in forum but I do sell computer parts at other forums and I have an Admin can vouch for my trustworthiness. And usually, if I bought or sold an item, we'll have this system called heatware to provide users feedbacks. Well, I hope my camera will come in sometimes this coming up week and I'll post my deal and my personal contact information if any of you guys are interested.

    Also, and I may be speaking the unspeakable, but you could also check fredmiranda.com's buy and sell forum.

    BTW, when you post, if you say "live locally", be sure to say where "local" is in the text of the ad (os readers don't have to look it up in your profile, and newer DGrin'ers might not even realize they can look that up).

    I have bought and sold a few items here on Dgrin. I find the buyers are much easier to deal with than on eBay, typically I have received the payment in the same day. Also buying items here has been great as well. I bought my 10D, and other lenses.

    A word of advice, make sure to price your items according to market value. Just search Dgrin and FM then price in that range, usually will sell in a week or so.
