    Default Found Old Nikon Equipment ! Help !

    Hi guys,

    When i jumped onto my wonderful photography journey, i jumped right into digital photography. Pioneering the hobby with my beloved D3000 which has recently been outcast by my new mistress D7000. Thus i am completely clueless with film equipment.

    However, just a few minutes ago. I found old nikon camera gear in my girlfriend's house, which her family does not want. Its a Nikon F401x loaded with a Nikkor AF 35-70 3.3-4.5 and a SB-25 flash along side it.

    Here are my questions :

    1) what is the value of the camera, both monetary and history of it ? (would love to learn more about nikon, although i've yet to do my own research)
    i'm considering selling it off since i do not use film at all.
    2) Can i use my Sb-25 with my D7000 ?


    THank you for all your help guys.

    - Nikon F401 introduced in 1987 is a follow-up to their first autofocus SLR in 1986, the Nikon F-501.

    - Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-70 mm f/3.3-4.5 is a combination of low cost and convenience lens. introduced in 1986

    - Nikon SB 25 first introduced in 1992

    - They are all Low/No resale value sort of old things.

    - SB25 can use on D7000, but no TTL.

    The SB-25 flash is quite the useful strobist flash.
