    Default PnS Film Camera still can sell?

    I have a Rollei PnS Film Camera sitting untouched for 6 years now.
    I figured I'm probably never gonna use it and might as well sell it.
    But I wonder if this type of camera can still be sold?
    Where can I sell it? Any idea how much it can fetch?
    Thanks.

    if you have totally no idea how much it can sell and you don't provide us with the model, i suggest you take some pictures and post it on B&S. bid starting from $1. let the market decide how much is it. just an idea.

    Even if I gave you the mode, you would not know!
    Anyway, it is at least branded, being Rollei.
    Took really good IQ photos.
    I bought it for $300+.
    If it can't fetch at least around $100 (which I think is hard to fetch lah), I think I will keep it.
    Think of it as antique collection and backup and sentimental item.

    This is a strange way to ask for help or opinions ?

    why don't you try using it. run a few rolls, pay a few dollars.

    if you ask me, you aren't going to get much for film p&s now. not unless it's a rangefinder that is highly demanded.

    Yeah... I figured too.
    I'll just keep it as a spare then. Continue to sleep in my dry cab.
    Doesn't take up much space anyway.

    Can try cash convertors, but i doubt they even want to take it in, probably give you $1 for it.

    yes, u can still buy film now. it's still very common in singapore, as long as u are not fussy over the exact brand or variety of film. some are more common than the others.

    i rather u sell the camera on CS than to sell them to Cash Converter. first u can't sell it for much, and they do not handle the camera well (at least that's what i see).

    keeping and using it is prob the best way, if u think its not going to fetch a gd price anyway.

    have fun.
