These used digital cameras can be had for a song!

Between supply chain disruptions and chip shortages, new electronics (like digital cameras) can be tough to find. For example the Nikon D850 hasn’t been in stock for months, and was recently rumored to be discontinued (spoiler alert: it wasn’t). This week, we took a look at some of the options out there for used cameras, and identified a number of models that represent tremendous value.

Our top used digital camera recommendations

  • Fujifilm X-T2
  • Olympus OM-D E-M1 MII and E-M5 MII
  • Nikon D750 and D810
  • Nikon Z6
  • Sony A73
  • Panasonic G9
  • Canon 5DmIII
  • Canon 5DSR
