Apraisals

How can I find out (online preferably) what my used camera equipment is worth? I already checked with B&H and laughed at them.

Check if simular equipment is for sale on Ebay. Look at sold items.

You will get more money selling it privately than you will selling it to a retailer, because they have to in-turn sell it to a consumer. Look at Keh.com as well as ebay, you can laugh all you want...but film equipment isn't worth very much these days.

Unless it is truly old, collectible stuff. What is it, exactly?

plus a quantaray 2X telaconverter.

they offered me 120 dollers for it all. I hate this. it's like computers, nearly two mear years ago I paid almost, collectivley nearly 900 dollers combined for it all. i wasn't wanting what i paid ofcourse, but was hoping to trade this and 200 dollers cash for a d70 body and a standard 19-35 or 28-35 lens. geuss i bought the wrong stuff again.

Sell it privately...you could probably see $225-$275 that way, but the shop is just going to give you about 50% of what they would expect to sell it for.

You might consider keeping the accessories, sell the film body and go with a KM dSLR or the Sony Alpa dSLR when it comes out, the lenses should work for either. If you really want a nikon, look at the used D70 at keh.com, they had them pretty cheap a couple of months ago, thats the D70...not the D70S.

The d70S has a larger LCD, there are a few software improvements as well, but all of them are available for the D70 through a firmware update.

Oh ok. I'm not really concerned with LCD size. I'll just keep what I got and keep putting money away till I find a good deal then. I was just reading someones Review on the d70, and how it has a faster flash sync rate over the 20d, and also that it was lighter and comparable in image quality to some higher end pro model cameras.

Artical here

I admit I only breezed thru it.

Thanks everyone.
