I have two Canon A-1 bodies in very good condition with an assortment of Canon lenses, a Canon power winder, two non Canon flash units and an assortment of filters. I haven't used any of these items in quite sometime and I don't plan to in the foreseeable future. Any recommendations on how I can sell/dispose of these items? E-mail me if you would like a list of what I have. Thanks!

After realizing how little they were worth I donated my old Minolta gear to the local University for their photography classes.

Hello there! I'm Paula from LA and novice in the site. This is actually my first post and to start with I'd like to say that your so nice folivier1.:) I'm pretty sure a lot of student will benefit from that old Minolta gear you've donated. Anyway, aside from photo editing, I'm sure most of you will agree with me that video editing is as interesting as photo editing. Regarding video editing, many longtime customers of Apple's Final Cut Pro non-linear video editing software were upset when the business upgraded to Final Cut Pro X last summer. The software has been a staple for video editors, pro and novice, since 1998. But the new edition is incompatible with files from old versions of the software, and the interface has been completely redesigned. Apple released upgrade 10.0.3 Tues in an attempt to correct some of the problems. Source for this article: New update for FCP X addresses user complaints.

Recently, I disposed on my old A1, a couple of AE1s, a couple of winders, some Canon and Vivitar series 1 glass. Oh yes, a Pentax SP 500 and a couple of nice super takumar lenses too. The price I got almost paid for the petrol to take them to the dealer! LOL

Stinking Canon changing their mounts, making all their lenses obsolete.

I do think you can sell your lenses at a good price, if it was a quality one.

I remember getting my Canon 24mm 2.0 for $200, it sold on fleabay for $455.
