I have used Havel before for both my camera and video equipment.

The guy does a great jobs. 

He is known through out the state.  He is that good.

I would avoid Camera Exchange.  They will try to get you to sell them
the camera and then low ball you.  They are into reselling used
equipment so they need to buy your stuff cheap.
