What are good options for selling photo equipment?

I have a Canon 70D and various lenses that I never use anymore. It's all just too heavy to lug around. I usually just use my iPhone, though I think I'd like to switch to a small mirrorless or similar camera. Where do people recommend selling this stuff? I'm hesitant to go the eBay/Facebook route just because I don't want to deal with scams or flakiness.

I'd assume a camera store would buy stuff, but I don't know any good ones in Chicago.

Thanks for ideas.

Craigslist was the best for heavy items

I've had good luck on Craigslist and FredMiranda.com buying and selling.

The safest way is to go through KEH. You will not get top dollar, but you will get a fair price. I would look on KEH.com or call their 800 number and ask when I KEH buyer will be near your city or town. You can of course mail it all in to them, but why? KEH frequently sends buyers to local used camera shops. They have some strange arrangement with a lot of these shops that may work out for you. If normally they would cut you a check for 500 or 1000 for your kit, you have the option of taking local store credit. The store credit is then 10-15% more than what your check would be.

KEH is a good place to buy used kit or at least they were good with me when I bought from them and a product failed within the warranty. Refund, no hassle.

Hope this helps,
