Making Photography More Affordable: Trade Up, Buy Used, or Rent Equipment
Photography is a growing interest—not only are more people discovering the art of taking pictures, but once they start, their enthusiasm tends to grow as well. And so does their personal inventory of equipment. Developing your skills with new cameras, lenses, and accessories is fun, but it can also become expensive. At Art’s Cameras Plus, we don’t want cost to come between you and the best possible images, so we have a number of affordable options you won’t find anywhere else.
Three Ways to Get More Camera for Your Money
As one of the only stores in the area focused exclusively on photography, Art’s has some unique ways to help you save on cameras and equipment of all kinds.
- Trade-Ins—Getting a new camera usually doesn’t mean your old one is broken. It’s more likely that you’ve just outgrown it, and are ready to step up your game and take better pictures with new technology. When you upgrade at Art’s, we may be interested in buying your old equipment so you can put that money toward your next purchase with us. Not many places take trade-ins like this, but it helps you get what you want while giving a beginner a chance to buy a nice camera without overspending.
- Used Equipment—Sometimes brand-new is not best. If you’re not sure what camera is right for you, or if your wish list is bigger than your budget, consider buying gently-used equipment from Art’s. It’s more affordable than new, and because our team thoroughly inspects all used equipment, you can trust that it’s in good working order.
- Rental Service—When you need a certain piece of equipment for a special day or project, or if you just want to try something new without making a commitment, Art’s rental service is the answer. We have a full range of cameras, lenses, flashes, tripods, and studio and video equipment available for rent. It’s as easy as logging in to reserve what you need, when you need it. Also, if you would like to know more about using a specific item, you can schedule a one-on-one session with one of our certified photographic consultants to make sure you get the most out of your rental.
Photography can be addictive, with every great picture inspiring you toward the next. With a little help from Art’s, you can indulge your passion without breaking the bank. Call or visit our local stores to learn how you can get the equipment you need for the images you want, at a price you can afford. At Art’s, we love helping you grow as a photographer—that’s exactly what we’ve been doing for 50 years!
