Photography equipment can be expensive – it’s not a cheap hobby. If you want to save yourself a little bit of money on that next photography purchase, think about buying second hand. As long as you are careful, it can make for a really good investment. If you do decide that this is the way to go, we have put together some expert advice for you:
- Try before you buy. Make sure everything is in good working order and you are happy with how it functions.
- Get a second hand case. This is perfect if you are going to be carrying your camera around and need to protect it. You can get some very cheap cases that have been used before and it won’t compromise their functionality.
- Speak to a camera shop. Rather than buying online or in a large store, go to your local camera shop and ask for their advice.
