Camera Jungle promises an ‘instant quote’ system for those wanting to sell or trade in their old gear, without them having to visit a store or ‘haggle over price’.

The Surrey-based business says photographers can sell kit for cash, or part-exchange used digital cameras and lenses for other gear on the website.

Camera Jungle manager Niki Needham, a former product manager at Nikon UK, said: ‘Used equipment offers superb value for money, meaning you can get pro-grade optical performance and build quality normally well beyond your budget.’

The new retailer says it provides a standard six-month guarantee and that all used equipment undergoes professional cleaning – including camera imaging sensors.

It has pledged to replace any missing accessories.

Customers can pay using credit and debit cards, or by using the PayPal online payment system, added a spokesman.
