We Buy Secondhand Cameras and Lenses

Selling or trading-in your secondhand camera or lens is easy and hassle-free with Cameraland Sandton.

Step 1: Bring in Your Gear

Bring in your gear to Cameraland Sandton, Shop L48, Sandton City, Rivonia Rd, Sandton. We will inspect your secondhand camera or lens and give you a value on the spot.

If you are unable to visit the shop you can email us at sales@cameralandsandton.co.za or give us a call on 011 884 8036 and we will give you an estimated value for your goods. If you are happy with the valuation, then courier the equipment to us. We will then inspect the gear and give you an official value.

Step 2: Get Paid or Trade-Up

If you are selling your secondhand camera or lens we will pay you via an EFT to your preferred bank account.

If you are trading-in your gear you will receive a credit note for the traded-in gear and get invoiced for the new gear. Should the traded-in gear value exceed the value of the new gear purchased we will pay the difference to you via an EFT to your preferred bank account. Should the value of the new gear purchased exceed the value of the traded-in gear you can pay the difference via credit card, EFT or cash.

Please remember to bring with you your Identity Card or Passport when selling your secondhand camera or lens. By law, we can not purchase any gear from a person without proof of identity.
