    Hi,

    It wasn't esay to let go my film camera after all these years of
    companionship, but...
    Does anyone know camera shops around Sydney who can offer some
    good trade-in Nikon film cameras for D70 ? What is your experience
    with them ?

    Thanks in advance for any advice/comments

    If you can at all afford it, keep both. If you have the lenses to suit the
    modern AF D70 then this is even more incentive as you won't get a great deal
    for the body only. Digitial is great, and I'll upgrade at some stage, but I
    won't let go of my film SLR's. You'de be surprised how little you may get
    for it too. :(

    why not have both a film and a digital camera? and while you're at it,
    here, have some cake.
    Any trade-in deal is not going to get you very much - usually less than
    half what they would sell it for. If you do need to sell your film
    camera, i'd suggest selling it privately in the tradingpost or on ebay.
    Bear in mind that prices for second hand film cameras have dropped a lot
    since everyone wants to sell theirs and get a digital!

    Cheers,
    Phil

    So what have you got to trade? Film camera prices are very low. F90x go for
    about $400 on average. F801 for $150 on a good day. I paid $400 for my F4E.

    Most camera stores will pay about a quarter of what they can sell the camera
    for. Even taking into account their higher asking prices they will only give
    you $200-300 on an F90x.
