    while packing my stuff and going through junk...i stumbled upon a camera that belongs to my wife...and wondered if anyone can tell me the value of it.

    Its a Vivitar V3000s with a 50mm f1.7 lens. This is a film camera.

    if she decides to sell it..i want to know how much i could get for it.

    about $20 tops, film cameras over here that used to be a fortune can be picked up at car boot sales for pennies, I keep looking for lenses but have had no luck. H

    sry to hijack....but ive often wondered this myself...i have a couple film cams i wouldnt be opposed to selling, but the values are so little compared to what i paid (one is a nikon n65).

    just out of curiosity though...why does the nikon F5 seem to maintain it;s value so well? because it's pro grade?

    jus' wonderin'

    Take it with you to Brazil. There may be more film shooters down there.

    My wife is Brazilian. We planned for a while to move there - but some recent events kind of expedited our plans. It is exciting. I'll actually be working for a photographer down there. Both of us will be.
