  16. Trade in or sell privately?

    I fight with this dilemma often. You can stand to lose 40 to 50% when trading in or selling to a shop that will resell your gear. So, I am inclined to sell it directly thru eBay or a place like that. But the lazy me, which can be a strong force, just wants to sell it to B&H or KEH. Those two places I just mentioned, will give you an online quote....not sure how that would work for Canadians selling.

    Part of a bulk sale at a super low price....a pic from over ten years ago. A community puppet show.
  19. Black Mushrooms on a Pizza?

    I think it is possible that they are crimini, not that expensive, I buy every week at the grocery....but maybe they were marinated first, giving them a darker color.

  24. How to see my photos for sale?

    Never put your own watermarks on images going to Alamy or any other agency for that matter. They put their own on.
  25. how common are refunds on sales?

    There seems to be fewer and fewer, thank goodness. There was a time when I could expect around one a month, some years ago.
