I've just bought a Canon EOS 600D body to replace my 400D.

Apart from eBay, is there any other place to sell the 400D for a good price? It is in a working condition.

Hey bigboss

dpreview.com has a for sale forum, but it's quite US-centric now so don't know how many bites you'd get.

Gumtree is the other obvious place.

Note that you probably wont get too much for it now, its several generations old and theyre like AV receivers in terms of depreciation. If it was a 50D I'd have had it off you Smile

Thanks JD. Yes, I know I won't get much, but anything is better than nothing! Seen a few on eBay going for £150+. I'll put it on eBay & see how it goes.  Smile

£150 would be nice.  Put it towards a Sigma 50mm f1.4 Smile

Need to recoup cost of 600D.  Wink

I got it at a lightning deal price of £330. Add £40 Canon rebate to that, effectively making it only £290!  Smile

I've got the Canon 50mm 1.8......that Sigma is tempting!

Canon kit goes fast on Facebook marketplace.  Got £800 for my 7D body only the day after listing.  After fees I would only have made £750 on eBay.

Well done on getting one of the deals, enjoy it! I was thinking of picking up a 600d also until I realised they don't do VAT discounts for non-EU sales on the deals. I understand the 'One price for all' nature of it, but I wonder what they do with the VAT?!

beauty, eh

I'll try Facebook marketplace first then. How much do you think will be a reasonable asking price?
