    Alright guys (and gals)... My dad has this older Nikon and he wants me to find out how much it's worth, so it can be sold and replaced by a new digital SLR because he thinks I'd be a great photographer. I really want to get into it and be able to take some good shots. I took a photography class in highschool with the pinhole cameras and some 35mm work including developing and whatnot.

    I'd keep this camera if I could get set up with developing gear and do it in my home, but I don't have the time for it right now.

    So... Do I keep the old 35mm and hope I have time to do my own developing later down the road, or do I sell it and get an entry level digital SLR?

    On with the camera.
    I'm not exactly sure what model it is, but maybe you guys can figure it out with the pictures.

    Looks very good shape! Not sure what it would be worth. PandaJerk might be able to help you if he stumbles upon this thread. If not shoot him a PM and ask him if he doesn't come strolling around soon. There are several others on here that could possibly help. Wish I could. All I can say is nice camera!

    That is a real nice film camera you have. Easily worth 100$ just for the body. That is one of the higher end models from Nikon. As long as you clean up the dust and any spots on the lenses/viewfinder, you could sell the whole package for at LEAST 200$. The whole thing is worth more than 200$ no doubt, I'm just not sure about what each of the lenses are worth.

    i was selling my rebel 35mm when i was shopping for my dslr, i decided to keep it as an emergency camera. theyre getting harder to find and i didnt pay much for it to begin with. unless you can get the $1k that theyre fetching, just let the value appreciate and sell it later if you have to.
