What equipment is BCC interested in?

 

Bergen County Camera purchases many of the more desirable SLR film and Digital SLR cameras, lenses & flashes. Keep in mind though, that the market demand for older film equipment is rapidly diminishing, so vintage film camera values are dropping.

 

Please call ahead to discuss the suitability of any item you are interested in buying, selling or consigning. Paul Brodek our used equipment buyer can be reached at 201-664-4113 ext 218 or via email.
