    Nikon F2A body in BGN cond, black, $144
    Nikon F FTN black "Apollo" in BGN cond with motor plate, $347 or so
    Nikomat FT2 chrome, in high BGN cond, probably $65 or so.
    Asahi Pentax Spotmatic in BGN condition, $47 or so

    $2704.00, if I don't include the digi stuff. If that's thrown in, ~$3000 or so. Enough for a decent car or a restoration of my current 25 year old Volvo 240 wagon. I'd probably just spend the money on buying everything back, though.

    Of course, what I've spent on some of the items is a bit different than what's listed. The F I got for $75. Put about $120 into a meter overhaul, and continued to use it. So, $195 for the camera, instead of $347. The FT2 I'd probably take a hit on, if I tried to sell it after the meter recalibration is done. Bought the camera for $30, and am spending another $68 on it, getting the meter back into spec.

    I couldn't get enough to cover what the equipment is worth to me.

    For what I'd get for my equipment if I sold it I might as well keep it, it's value is in what it does.

    I have about 100 old cameras but most are not worth that much any longer. The ones I like best are my Rollei TLRs, my Fuji GSW690 II and my Bronicas. I would hate to sell any of them.

    Today I've been thinking of just that, selling almost everything, just to clear it out and start with a new approach, a simplifier and more streamlined way of working. I'd keep my headless Durst 138 enlarger, finishing gear and plate burner but these cameras and lenses and "extras" are getting to be too much. You leave somethings around and the seals start to get mushy and lenses have to be use to keep them in operating order. See Grimes about cleaning and adjustments, 6 months is the limit I believe. It isn't healthy to collect and not make full use of anything.

    Nothing close to their value to me. My kids can sell it all when I die if they want to. None of it was bought as an investment, all has been rode hard, but put away dry.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    If I had to liquidate my entire inventory of photographic equipment it might be because of some kind of financial or health disaster. So after paying my creditors, or whomever, I'd have at the end zero dollars (probably).

    Actually, over the past couple of years or so I have been selling off stuff I don't use. My goal is one set of equipment per format (35mm, MF, LF). I'm just about there and have sold about $7k to $10k worth of equipment. Less (equipment)=more (shooting)...for me.
