    Hi, I have a very feature-laden Nikon camera that looks almost new. It
    was among a lot of professional photog. accessories that my husband
    had but didn't use. On the front of the camera is F3 and inside the
    lens it says micro-NIKKOR-PC f=55mm 799521. On the back is Nikon
    1364842. It is about 10 times heavier than my little digital camera!
    In the same box were a lot of filters, extra lenses, slide
    duplicators, flash attachments, cables, etcetcetc.

    Would appreciate knowing if it is worthwhile to pursue selling & for
    how much. Are the filters worth anything? They are in zippered leather

    I don't know what to do with this stuff, yet I do believe it is worth
    something, and I would like someone to buy it who can use it & knows
    what to do with it. (I am happy with my digicam & disposables.)
    Appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

    If you surf over to the KEH website

    Click on sell your equipment. Feed in the various items. The website will
    spit out a value. It'll give you an idea of the value.

    The filters depend on make and which ones. So does all the other stuff.

    In short it all depends.

    Your husband's camera and micro-Nikkor are not worth the space they take
    up. I'll gladly dispose of them for you. Simply mail them to me and you
    won't be bothered by them again. :)

    Just kidding. The stuff should be worth a few fundred bucks. Check eBay
    auction results for some recent sales of F3 and 55mm Micro-Nikkors.

    Yes it is worth selling. You could take it into some reputable camera
    shop and have them sell it on your behalf, or buy it from you. Or you
    could auction it on Ebay. The body on its own should be worth $250 or
    so, the lens $50 or so, and all the other bits and pieces will be worth
    money as well, either sold separately or as part of an overall deal.
    Depending on the brand and condition, filters should be worth $5-10
    each. The flashes and other lenses will be worth good money depending on
    what they actually are.

    I have the HP version of this camera and use it regularly. It is a great
    solid (yep its heavy) camera. It is worth selling, maybe on E-bay. And all
    the other stuff is worth selling as well. Assuming they work and are in
    good shape. Try plugging Nikon F3 in Ebay search and see what pops up.
    Realize that the F3HP is worth more. If you feel like giving the lot away
    keep me in mind!
