    I have two PD150's still in the box, never been opened, due to a career
    transition that never got off the ground. Now I think I want to sell
    them.

    What do you think I could get for them? What are they worth, on EBay,
    or elsewhere?

  2. $1,100 - 1,500 (but that's just a guess)

    They are still in the box but they are older than the new stuff.

    No, wait! As a matter of fact they are worthless. Don't even bother
    selling them. I'll get rid of them for you and give you the balance, if
    there is one. :| Please?

    The new stuff (PD170) is $3K. I'm curious...what important features
    does the 170 have over the 150?

  4. Umm...It's...new?

    I don't really know but I think I remember it having better (bigger?) CCD's
    and a couple other things... maybe even 24PA.

    One of the other guys would have to answer with specifics, sorry.

    I just know I'm looking for a 150 or a VX2100 or a DVX100A. All around the
    same price (used 150 vs. new 2100 or 100A).

  5. PD170 has improved low light ability at I lux (The 2 lux of the PD150
    was impressive enough)

    Same HAD 4x3 1/3" CCD's as the PD150

    New quieter audio preamp (No longer necessary to keep the Mic NR
    switched on at all times as with the PD150 and improved S/N ratio in
    Manual mode means it's now usable)

    Double the graduations on the manual iris control now allows manual
    exposure pulls that are worth recording.

    Daylight viewable LCD without the need for a screen shade

    Larger magnification on the viewfinder (Not sure this is actually an
    improvement!

    Comes with excellent wide angle lens adapter that used to cost an
    additional $300 to $400

    All of which are actually very worthwhile improvements over the PD150
