Sell Your Camera and Camera Lenses

How do I sell my used camera gear on eBay?

Whether you’re looking to sell a used DSLR camera or camera lenses, the first step is to prepare your item for sale by restoring factory settings and clearing out any personal data or settings. Once your item is ready, take clear, high quality pictures of your camera or lenses - you can get more tips here: eBay Seller Center - Take Great Photos. If your used camera comes with additional equipment or a case, make sure that you include pictures of those items also.


The next step is to create your camera listing on eBay. You need a short, yet descriptive title and a precise camera description. You should indicate approximately how much your camera was used, what model it is and if it has any signs of usage e.g.: scratches or marks.


Your description should be as specific and accurate as possible so that potential buyers know exactly what they are getting. If you are selling lenses, you should also include in the product description these features:

  • Focal length/aperture
  • Mount compatibility
  • Construction
  • Focus format
