    I am selling a Kowa Six in good condition. There are a few signs of considered use, but no damage or defects that I am aware of. There are not too many this nice left these days!

    Price: $230 plus insured shipping. I can take a check or money order in payment.

    Kowa Six and Accessories

    Hello and sorry to bother you but I don't know where else to go! I have a Kowa Six my father left with 2 lenses and an exposure meter and I would like to sell on Ebay but don't know what I should ask for it. The condition is acceptable with some cosmetic defects and the waist view finder may need to be replaced. Other than that, I remember my father saying it works but as I'm not well versed in photography I wouldn't even know how to really answer questions people may have.
    I would appreciate any advice on what to ask for it, I was thinking of listing it as a bid starting maybe around $150. Does that seem too low?

    Thanks in advance and again, sorry to bother you with this!

    Ron

    Ron, welcome to APUG. I recommend you subscribe here and sell it here. You more likely will have less problems than eBay. JMHO.

    I would put it up on ebay as "Buy it Now", not auction. You might only get one bidder since these aren't very well known cameras. With 2 lenses and a meter you could get $400/$500 easy. My father also left me his Kowa Six and after all these years of sitting around the thing still works perfectly! Anyways, good luck.

    And yeah, APUG would be less trouble.

    Thanks so much for your input everyone! What exactly do you mean I'll have less trouble selling it through here though? Thanks!

    The classified section here, is a place many find better for buying and selling, than the online auctions. While I have not sold anything here on APUG, I have bought several cameras, and accessories.

    As one who has used the online auction to buy cameras, I prefer to get them here. The quality level is higher, and the people you deal with are more approachable.
