    What I've got isn't worth spit, except to you guys at Apug. When I die(or long before if my daughter has her way)my gear goes to the kids that still want it.

    Just camera gear - about $3500. With darkroom included - about 5000. But I'd never sell my pop's Rolleiflex. That started it all.

    Interesting thread 2F/2F.

    I think all of my equipment is worth about $2,000. But I have a very svelte collection, because I never believed gear would make me a better photographer, so I don't have a whole lot invested in it either.

    I have an Excel file where I sum up all my acquisition costs, service costs and also give a rough estimate of the current market value for each item I own. I'm not a pro so I like to keep an eye on how much money I have tied up in my gear. My only Leica setup (one M-body, one Leica lens) is worth one third of all of my gear scanners included.

    I'll have to think about my answer later, as it will require some serious counting...
    Well, that's just it. I can't even sit down and make a list of all that I own, much less its small value ...

    i can't really put a number on it
    but i know i could get enough to at least get a
    brooks saddle for my raleigh roadster ...
    other than that i don't really want to
    think about it, seeing i have seller's remorse
    when i sell stuff off.

    nice thread 2F

    The camera 'stuff' I have is not worth much now, but it was many years ago. If I did sell it I wouldn't buy a digital camera.

    Like John, I don't want to think about it.
    By the time I'd be ready to liquidate the cost of the process would probably exceed the value of the stuff.
    Then, my luck would be that a day after the liquidation it would all be valuable collectables.

    Got one of those conundrums already, don't need another.

    Oddly the stuff that I have that I enjoy using the most is worth the least, all of that is worth maybe $100 total and that includes support gear for it.

    Now my specialized gear, underwater, medium format, 3D, assorted 35mm cameras plus related equipment and lenses would come up to about $1000.

    I am only allowed to have all the gear that I can fit into one camera case, and no more, my camera case is a footlocker size trunk with a few camera and film decals on it and has about 14 cameras in it. I was also informed that next time there will be stricter rules on the definition of "case".

    Considering my last experience trying to sell something here, a headache.
