How I Made Rs. 10,000 With An Unused DSLR Camera

It is absolutely fascinating to know that 4 out of 5 DSLR owners do not use the camera frequently. In the excitement of an event of their life (like a trip to Ladakh), they end up buying the DSLR and then it just sits there. Literally like an un-used product which you brought just because you thought it looked good on the internet! 

About 5 months ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Wlend. It is a platform to Rent DSLR & Action Cameras like GoPro. There was an opportunity for DSLR owners to list their cameras and in return they would pay a fixed sum of money every month. 

I was skeptical about it in the beginning but then I wanted my Canon 600D to be of some use! It was about 8 months old and was used about 14 days in its entirety. I took my chances with Wlend and it was one of the best decision of my life! 

December 1st, I received an acknowledgement of my first payout and ever since, on the 1st of every month I get the notification of the payout. It has been 5 months since and I have made Rs. 10,000 on a DSLR which otherwise would have made ZERO.
