I’ll probably end up on eBay again, but after an unpleasant run-in with a nutter on there a few weeks ago I’m trying to avoid it at the moment.
Does anyone have any suggestions for the bets place to advertise and sell a camera in the UK?
You know: low fees, low headbanger quotient?
Thanks in advance.
Sorry then Aside from a camera shop such as Ace optics or the Wam I cannot think of any alternatives to Ebay
I have bought from these guys and it was hassle free, never sold to them though.
There a couple of well run UK photog sales groups on Facebook.
Loads of great suggestions - thanks very much folks.
I’d second the Leica Forum.
+1 for Leica forum or London Camera Exchange. MPB good too.
Nice camera, I have one - do you mind me asking why you are selling it?
Thanks, and it is indeed a very nice camera.
I simply don’t use it enough to justify owning it. I fished it out of a cupboard yesterday only to find that it was completely flat. Realised that I hadn’t used it since last September, and that if I do take a picture I just reach for my phone. Out it goes.
Also my eyesight is sufficiently shit these days that the act of taking a photograph with all the concomitant faffing to find the correct glasses etc. actively annoys me.
A private sale would probably give you the best return, but for a hassle free deal try Red Dot Cameras http://www.reddotcameras.co.uk/
I’ve a couple of camera friends who highly recommend the shop.
That’s where it came from in the first place, they’re really nice people.
There’s someone on here who sounds interested, but I need to get my act together and think of a price, and fight the usual pitched battle with SWMBO - nothing must ever be bought or sold.
I too would recommend Red Dot.
I’ve dealt (only bought) with them a couple of times.
The Q is a nice camera, but if memory serves me right, it’s a fixed lens.
I’ve got several Leica lenses, and also, I’m limbering up for an M10
Fixed 28 but the Q is really the first digital camera that Leica got right IMO, I’ve had a few cameras and it’s genius.
Whether they can take that innovative thinking/execution forward… I’m not the person to ask.
M10 looks tasty, especially if you have some lenses lying around.
Yes, I thought it was fixed, but yes, nice camera.
I’ve got several M’s to go with those lenses - film and an M9
Do start a thread if you get one - bit elitist, like the Porsche thread might persuade me to part with £££ to get one too.
