SUNSTUDIOS Trade & Upgrade

SUNSTUDIOS Trade & Upgrade

Thinking of upgrading your equipment or investing in new gear? The SUNSTUDIOS Trade & Upgrade program is an easy way to get there.

SUNSTUDIOS' Trade & Upgrade FAQ

What is the SUNSTUDIOS Trade & Upgrade Program?

We provide an opportunity for you to upgrade your existing equipment or invest in different equipment by trading in your current gear for an amount off the new gear.

What type of equipment is eligible to be traded in under the Program?

  • Canon EOS 5 series and Canon EOS 1 series cameras
  • Canon EF L series Lenses
  • Broncolor lighting equipment

How can I submit my equipment for assessment?

Come and see us at SUNSTUDIOS Sydney or contact us to discuss and arrange an evaluation. You can do this via email at or phone us on 02 9641 5544

What requirements does my equipment need to meet in order for me to trade it in?

Your equipment needs to be genuine and in good working condition. Shutter count, error logs, sensor condition and general wear and tear will all influence your trade in value for cameras. Lens element condition and general wear and tear will influence the trade in value for lenses.

How do you assess the condition of my equipment?

SUNSTUDIOS will evaluate your equipment using a trained technician, taking into consideration several factors, including age, condition, included accessories, current resale prices and how much stock of that item SUNSTUDIOS currently has.

How does trade-in work?

Bring your equipment in to SUNSTUDIOS so that it can be assessed by a technician. You’ll generally need to leave your equipment with us, and assessments can take up to up to 5 business days. If we choose to make you an offer, we’ll provide you with a trade-in amount, which you can either accept (and then leave the equipment with us) or reject (and collect your equipment). The accepted trade-in amount will be taken off the purchase price of approved nominated product/s.

What can I use my trade-in value towards?

Trade-in value can be used towards the purchase of any brand new products available in SUNSTUDIOS’ showroom.
