I've been using a RRS L-bracket to mount my camera on my tripod.  If I buy a new camera, I have to buy a new bracket to fit it.  I can sell my old camera on eBay, but I'm curious what do people usually do with their old brackets.  Does anybody know?

When I search through eBay for RRS brackets for Canon 5D MK III and Nikon D800, I see nearly none being sold.  When looking at entries for the camera bodies themselves, many sellers include batteries and other accessories as bonuses to attract buyers, but I never see brackets being included.

So my question is, what are people doing with their old brackets when they move to a new camera?  I mean these things are not cheap ($140 new from RRS).  I'm pretty sure RRS doesn't have a trade-in program (please correct me if I'm wrong), so where are people selling their old brackets?

Thanks!

I see them pop up on Craigslist sometimes. I do know one person who used an L-bracket, two clamps, and a Wimberley Sidekick to make a gimbal head for his monopod, to use with a 600/4L IS II.

People are not selling their 5D MkIII's and D800's in the numbers they are selling 5D MkII's. Ebay is the place for old RRS stuff.
