Any photographers unable to afford a camera?

I have a K10D with Kit lens and grip, all in working order.
I don't expect it would make a lot at re-sale and to be honest I would much rather it went to someone who is passionate about photography but unable to fund a camera.
Do we know of such an individual?

That's very generous of you Karl, hopefully somebody does know such a budding photographer. A K10D would be very serviceable and give good results.
Best regards, John

Perhaps there are local charity organisations that look for donations of photographic material?

Or colleges? They might have a use for it for photography courses in the (hopefully not too distant) future.

If there are no takers, The Disabled Photographers Society (see https://www.the-dps.co.uk for contact details) accepts donations of kit which they sell to fund adaptation of kit for use by disabled people.

They usually have a stand at The Photography Show, which is where I came across them four or five years ago.

Yes, very noble.

Given that I thought I would get peanuts for a samsung version of the camera with the 2 lens kit I was surprised to have 10 people get in touch with me within 5 minutes.

So, if you are still thinking of selling the K10D on it still has plenty of residual value, and admirers.
