Second-hand focus for new online dealer

April 26, 2013

Camera Jungle promises an ‘instant quote’ system for those wanting to sell or trade in their old gear, without them having to visit a store or ‘haggle over price’.

The Surrey-based business says photographers can sell kit for cash, or part-exchange used digital cameras and lenses for other gear on the website.

Camera Jungle manager Niki Needham, a former product manager at Nikon UK, said: ‘Used equipment offers superb value for money, meaning you can get pro-grade optical performance and build quality normally well beyond your budget.’

The new retailer says it provides a standard six-month guarantee and that all used equipment undergoes professional cleaning – including camera imaging sensors.

It has pledged to replace any missing accessories.

Customers can pay using credit and debit cards, or by using the PayPal online payment system, added a spokesman.
