No matter if you’re selling or buying used gear, I’m sure you’d like to get a good price. Bokeh Market is a website which will tell you the market value of used gear: cameras, lenses and bundles. This way, you’ll get the insight into the real-time value of used gear, so you can determine the price to sell it or make sure not to overpay when buying.

You can type the exact model of the camera or lens you want to buy or sell, or browse through the brands and select the gear from this category. There are now various cameras and lenses available, as well as bundles or kits. The website also announces that the “Adapters” category is coming soon.

When you type in the name of the piece of gear you’re looking up, you’ll get to see a whole lot of information. There are the specs and an average price chart reaching about 10 months back. There’s the price of new and used gear, as well as the rental price. There are listings through different marketplaces: eBay, KEH, Amazon, B&H, Adorama and Fred Miranda.  Also, you can check out different bundles for the selected piece of gear.

If you’re looking for a specific camera or lens, you can create an account and add an alert with the price ceiling. This way, you’ll get a notification when the gear you’re after appears on sale. You can also create your own collections or bundles to check their market values.

Bokeh Market is still in beta, but the creators hope it will be your “reliable price guide for used camera gear” and “a place where you can set alerts for products in the market you’re searching for.” It really seems useful, so the next time you’re looking for a good deal or want to put a price tag on your used gear – check out Bokeh Market.

    I wonder how they’ll monetize it. Do they hope to have deals with used equipment sellers, so that Bokeh Market gets a commission on sales? Or do they just plan to sell ads?

      Right now we’re not focused on monetization. The product is in beta and the data isn’t quite to our standard of what we consider ready for prime time. We released early to get the feedback of the community so it could be a great product.

      We’re going to try and avoid ads long term as they can degrade the user experience. If we can find a way to do it elegantly we’ll consider it, but very few sites are able to pull that off.
