Should I sell my Canon EOS-1 film camera?
« on: November 07, 2013, 01:25:39 AM »
I'm going to be selling some camera equipment and I have a fully functioning Canon EOS-1 that I haven't used since I went digital in 2008. Does it have any value on the used market? Thanks! :)

I sold my 1V is 2011 for $500.  I regretted it shortly after the sal, soI recently purchased a 1V-HS for 300...so sadly, they are not worth that much

Personally I'd keep it unless i was really in need of same cash - you can always put a roll in it from time to time and just enjoy the experience :)

As others said before, it's no good time for selling film cameras.

If I were you, I would keep it, treat it well and one day show it to my children and grand children  ;)

OK, well let me know when you want me to show it to your children and grand children. :D

Hang onto it unless you are chronically short of cash or storage space. You'd get so little for it.
Someone might stroll into your life who would be genuinely over the moon to accept it as a gift.

Yeah! Pulseimages, I will do so, if I need to.
I have an old Nikon F601 (Yes! The dark side...!) and I suppose, one day I will get my fathers AE-1.

But thank you for your offer  ;)
