9 Most Expensive Subaru Cars Sold At Auction

From the cutest police car to fire-breathing rally cars. Subaru has been around as a car maker since 1953. It’s a descendant of Nakajima Aircraft Company, founded in 1918 to become Fuji Heavy Industries later. Fuji Heavy Industries wanted a dedicated automaker under its umbrella and formed Subaru. The new automaker’s first vehicles were small cars and kei trucks. Later in Western markets it branded its cars as “Inexpensive, and built to stay that way.” Now, Subaru is well-known and appreciated for its all-wheel-drive family vehicles and horizontally-opposed boxer engines. That tradition started with Subaru’s Symmetrical AWD system debuting in 1972.As Subaru has spent most of its existence making predominantly family cars, it occupies a weird niche in the collector market. While collectible, old Subarus don’t tend to trade at high prices. But there is one notable exception. The company is also known for its rally heritage that it started…

eBay Trying to Stop Steam Deck Scalpers

by Cole Travis in General | Jul, 28th 2021 It seems that every time a new console is being released, scalper have been flooding the preorders to get their hands on it, hoping to sell the console to buyers who want it but are unable to find one in the wild. The only catch to this business exchange is that the scalpers are selling the console for a higher price than what the console is retailed for. This is happening with the PS5, Xbox Series X, the Switch OLED, and now, the Steam Deck. However, Valve has been quick to make sure that the console is getting into the hands of the people who want the console more than the people who are looking to sell the console for a profit.

Where to Sell Your Used Camera Gear

Well, you finally did it. After months of thinking about it, pining over the pictures and recommendations of others on social media, and constantly inflating your budget, someone’s got a new camera. But after spending all that time thinking about your new purchase, you neglected to put any serious thought into what to do with your old stuff. So where do you start?. In my experience, there are three major factors to consider where you will ultimately decide to sell. Those factors are: offer price (for your gear), speed (of transaction), and convenience (or hassle, for you). Uh oh. Now we have an unattainable triangle, and you can only pick two. Really. Here’s how this impossible triangle works: A convenient, high offer, won’t come fast. A fast, high offer won’t come convenient. And a fast, convenient offer won’t be high. Now that you know the three factors which will contribute…

The Best Places to Buy Used Cameras and Lenses in 2021

Ever since I became a photographer, most of the cameras and lenses I have purchased have been used. Most cameras and lenses only come with one-year warranties (though there are exceptions), and since some used gear sellers offer 6-month warranties, that extra half-year is often not worth the difference (to me). And, of course, some items — like vintage or discontinued cameras and lenses — are only available used. Updated 7/28/2021 by Matt Williams: Added LensAuthority. Also, if I want to try a camera out to see how it works for me, I look for an open-box item — I am not a fan of returning brand new cameras because of purely personal preference. I have had experience with all the below-mentioned companies, some much more than the others. So, without further delay, here is our list of the top six (in alphabetical order) places to look at when seeking…
