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
check at KEH and see what the price point might be.
I say keep it then sell it when we get the next generations of SLR's.....Optical SLR's? lol. IDK maybe
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'
out of curiosity i want to know why you are moving to Brazil?? How exciting!
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.
Wow! That is great! Congratulations and good luck!
I'm from Brazil!
Where are you gone to live?
