    I left my much loved cannon g5 on a plane on Tuesday night and it looks like someone has taken it. boo hoo. :( I love that camera so much, I was wondering if it would be possible to get a second hand one. Does anyone know of any second hand (digital) camera stores (besides ebay)?

    Are you still in Dublin or London? There's loads in London, you could try gumtree either.

    I'm in Dublin, so online ones would be better but I'll be over in London in March. Where is this gumtree you speak off?

    I'm going into central London today and I'll have a look for you if you like. What's your max budget?

    Well looking at ebay I reckon a Canon G5 would probably cost about 200 sterling. If you could see if they stock them or even if they know if its possible to get them second hand, i'd much appreciate it.

    Thanks for looking, now I'm thinking of getting an eos 3500 if I can find one , and a a640 for carrying around. Though I change my mind every two minutes. I'll be in London next week so I was thinking I might check out camera shops over there.

    Don't go near a Ricoh GR then. Most people I've shown the camera to then decide that they want one!

    ah if only it had a twist and tilt lcd screen I'd be tempted.

    I have used them, and they are excellent. Got a 77mm B+W red filter that would have set me back a huge some of money for £15, in perfect condition through the post. I was recently up visiting my ex in Tain so stopped by the shop, all really knowledgable people - shop is full of absolute bargains, saved me a fortune, especially on filters etc.

    I have a Canon G5 which I was intending to put on ebay, if you're interested. It's had very little use, hence the need to sell it.

    I have a Lumix DMC-LX3 that I barely used. I'd like to sell it but I'd like to avoid selling it online, purely because I'll have to pack it properly, purchase insurance, and then shit myself that it may not arrive in good condition at the buyer's end.

    Are there any shops in London I can sell this camera to?

    Thank you.

    I can't think of anywhere apart from the CEX stores that are everywhere. It's still a good camera but like all electronics, its value plummets over time.

    Nice one, thank you. Apparently there is a branch in Peckham, I'll try them.
