Kamerastore wants to buy your used photo gear

Do you own a bunch of cameras, lenses or other photography equipment that you don’t use anymore in your hobby or professional shooting? Or you don’t know what to do with a collection of two thousand old cameras from your gramps, just taking up space? Struggling to get rid of them one by one? Hey, no worries – Kamerastore will buy used cameras, lenses, flash units, tripods and other photo gear – with actual money.

Just fill in a request and we will get back to you with a written offer within a couple of days. Actually, two offers: one for direct buy and another one of a bit higher value in case you want to make a trade-in for some of our products. If you’re happy with our quote you can send your gear to us by mail or bring it in yourself to our Tampere main store or to our smaller Helsinki shop.

After this our professional camera service team will perform a closer inspection on the condition of the gear. This happens in our Camera Rescue Center in Tampere with proper measurement instruments. Items that are brought in to our Helsinki shop are transported to the Rescue Center once a week. Within a couple of working days you will get our report. If there are any significant issues found we will modify our offer accordingly. You’re still free to back off if you decide it’s not a good idea to sell after all.

In our testing we will take readings of things such as precision of the exposure, shutter timing, shutter curtain speeds and other functions. All done in test benches built for this purpose. With lenses we pay attention to optical performance, mechanical condition and correct focusing. For this we made the effort to acquire collimators and other tools.

We do all of this in order to pay the best possible price to our customers for their gear. If the customer declines our offer we of course respect that and give the items back as they were. In such case we ask the customer to collect their items within a time frame of two months or agree with us upon dispatchment of the items.

A used camera, lens or other photography device will find a new loving home through our service. Selling to us is fast and easy!
