Why buy used?

At KEH Camera, we know a thing or two about buying and selling used camera gear—after all, it’s been our bread and butter for nearly 40 years. And while we live and breathe this stuff every day, not everyone is as aware of the benefits of purchasing used photography equipment as we are. Let’s change that, shall we?

Here are some benefits to buying used at KEH:

Better value

Camera equipment is generally durable, well-built and reliable, so by buying pre-owned, you can get quality equipment at a fraction of the retail price.

Smart choice

Buying used gets you more for your budget. For less money, you can upgrade to something that may otherwise be out of your league if bought brand new.

Environmentally responsible

Camera gear has a long lifecycle, so when you purchase used products, you’re extending the usefulness of those items and keeping them from being discarded.

Guaranteed satisfaction

Every used item you get goes through a 10-point grading process to assure quality and comes with an extended warranty as well as a return period.

There’s no downside to buying used when shopping at KEH!
