I've used MPB myself several times

Photography is a real love of mine - and, like most photographers, I love to tinker with my setup constantly. With the usually cost-prohibitive sums that new gear fetches, I've found MPB to be one of the best ways to get my hands on new stuff without completely breaking the bank.

By far and away the biggest selling point of MPB is that you know you're getting gear that is 100% guaranteed to be as described on the product page. MPB has a team of professionals checking every piece of gear that goes through their system so you're not relying on a 'trust me bro' situation on an auction site. All listings on MPB have six months of warranty as standard, with options for additional coverage should you want that extra security.

The trade-in process is exceptionally easy with MPB, too. They simplify the process massively by providing a label, instructions, and even a courier to pick up your gear directly from your doorstep. All you need is a box and you're good to go.

A few hidden gems on MPB

Just because I couldn't resist as the Deals Editor here at TechRadar, here are a few listings on MPB that have particularly caught my eye this week - all for around £1,000, which is a good starting point for most systems.

Fujifilm X-T2: Ideal for street or travel 

I love this Fujifilm setup as a beginner-friendly option for street photography and travel. You get a fantastic body in the form of the X-T2 - a camera that's still capable of outputting great shots - and two lightweight primes that cover both wide and close ranges. 

Despite its age, the X-T2 still features great JPEG film simulation presets, which makes it a good option for those who want 'Instagrammable' shots straight out of camera. Anecdotally, I've also seen this camera body go for as much as £600 at high-street photography stores recently so I think MPB's giving you a great deal here.

Fuji X-T2 (excellent condition): <a href="https://www.prf.hn/click/camref:1101l4sAq/pubref:hawk-custom-tracking/destination:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mpb.com%2Fen-uk%2Fproduct%2Ffujifilm-x-t2%2Fsku-2340897" data-link-merchant="mpb.com"">£479

Sony Alpha A7R II: Ideal for landscape 

A full frame mirrorless setup with 47MP for under a grand? Yep, it's possible - if you're willing to go for an older model, that is. I've singled out the Sony A7R II here as a great starting point for the FE mount - a lens ecosystem that features a massive range of options right now.

Is it the best camera in 2024? Absolutely not - it's almost 10 years old and the battery life in particular isn't great these days (I recommend getting a spare), but if you're a budding landscape photographer looking for resolution, this one is a good option. I've paired it up with a cheap (but sharp) zoom lens here for a lightweight versatile setup that's also weatherproofed.

Sony Alpha A7R II (excellent condition): <a href="https://www.prf.hn/click/camref:1101l4sAq/pubref:hawk-custom-tracking/destination:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mpb.com%2Fen-uk%2Fproduct%2Fsony-alpha-a7r-ii%2Fsku-2376153" data-link-merchant="mpb.com"">£774

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II: Ideal for wildlife

This Micro Four Thirds setup gets you an unbeatable zoom range for under £1,000 thanks to the system's handy crop factor. This pairing is also relatively lightweight considering you're getting a whopping maximum focal length of 400mm in full-frame terms.

The E-M1 is a powerful camera for under £500, with a rugged build, great ergonomics, and an excellent range of in-built computational features. It's still capable of great results in 2024 and a good pairing with the splash-proof zoom lens here thanks to its great in-body stabilization. 

Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II (like new): <a href="https://www.prf.hn/click/camref:1101l4sAq/pubref:hawk-custom-tracking/destination:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mpb.com%2Fen-uk%2Fproduct%2Folympus-om-d-e-m1-mark-ii%2Fsku-2395138" data-link-merchant="mpb.com"">£434
