Not sure where to post this so if it doesn’t belong here, please let me know the proper section and I’ll move it there…

I’m going to sell my wife’s old powershot soon and I have no idea what fair market value is. It’s a PowerShot SD850 IS 8.0 MP Digital Elph. It shows signs of wear: scratches on the body, chips in the paint, etc. but functionality, screen, and lens are all excellent.

Any ideas? $50? $70? $90?

Unfortunately, Point & Shoots don't retain much value, primarily because the technology in these cameras move forward so quickly. The 850 was a great camera for its timeframe, but it's about 5 years old.

If I were in your shoes, I'd list it for $60 and see where things go from there. There are a few folks asking upwards of $100 on Amazon an eBay, but they aren't going to get many hits.

Best of luck with the sale!

Not really worth selling all banged up so i'd give it as a gift to someone (maybe a family member) who can't afford a camera. Thats what i did when some of my cameras were no longer of use is give them to my nieces. Might make the perfect gift to save for someone you know who might be much less fortunate.

That is a great idea. Great way to pay it forward!

based on completed listings, i'd say it's more like 60-70 for most working used ones...

i gave my nephew my old P&S for his 4th b-day...i'm not sure if my brother lets him use it much though
