Used Lighting / Grip Equipment

As the title says, Im looking for some place reasonable cheap, that sells used lighting and grip equipment.

Hopefully someone may know of a place in Canada, but am open to suggestions from places in the US.

I know its againt DVInfo to post names of other businesses. If anyone knows of a great place, would they mind PMing me or E-mail me some info.


Thanks

If you want used stuff, you could try posting a looking for post on the classifieds board here. There are a few people from Vancouver.

You could also try B&H, as their prices are good to check against (i.e. they are low). Unfortunately, when you buy from them the shipping may kill the deal. Don't ship UPS or Fedex, they charge excessive brokerage fees (unless you get their really fast service). Ship USPS (united states postal service), which will charge $5/$8 ($8 if it's express) on top of GST and PST.
They only sell a little bit of used stuff, but obviously check that you're not paying more than for new stuff. Their website is excellent.

Wouldn't that be against board policy too? Not that I would know.

definitely be careful with b&h used!

I've walked around the store and up into the used section to see what prices are like on superclamps, grip heads, etc... and found that often the used are MORE than new. Not true with everything, but you may be hard pressed to find really good deals in their used department.

This place seems to have a good selection, but it's all over the board in terms of what you'll find.

There's always ebay, which is generally pretty good for lighting, but not so good for grip.
