Hey Everyone,

As you all might recall, about six months ago all my gear was stolen. Well, I've since replaced everything, but today I a police office called and they found my camera at a pawn shop.

I already bought a 1D Mark IV so I don't need it, BUT GET THIS ... the SHUTTER is broken.

What would you all guess I could sell it for broken? It looks like one of the little bars that come down to close is loose.

I don't need it and figured I'd sell it, but what's it worth?


Thank You,
joeandpuppies

That's a costly repair. Looks like it'll only be about $1. I'll give you $10 for it :)

All kidding aside, I'd estimate the repair to be $500 or so if it's out of warranty. However, it's only been at most 6 months, so why not send it in for repair and sell it at or near the going market rate?

Several POTNers have sold their broken cameras on Ebay (as-is, broken). I guess people are buying them for parts.

Call canon to get an estimate, shutter replacement is $200-$300 depending on the model, so even if you put that much in it you still get it back. The other option is to call canon, get a quote and then sell it on ebay or here with the estimate from canon.

Depends...

if it's beat to hell with LCD scratches and paint chips everywhere and it's sitting at 250k actuations, I'd say just sell it on eBay as parts for whatever you can get for it.

If it's in good cosmetic shape, with a replaced shutter it's worth 600-700 bucks (if you're lucky)...with a shutter costing you about 300, you can make around 300 bucks if the camera is otherwise in great shape...whether that's worth your time and effort is up to you

I'm shooting with a 5D MkII now but my 1D MkII was so solid, I've kept it for a backup and special purposes and won't even consider selling it. Even if I wind up buying a 1D MkIV, I'll still keep the MkII. It focuses.
