Let me first say, I am not posting an ad to sell anything! I, like many of you, made the jump from film to digital. Last night, I was moving some things around and came upon my old camera bag with a lightly used Nikon 6006. This is a great camera but since getting the digital bug, I don't need it. Is there a used market for such things? Advice needed.

http://www.ebay.comis probably your best bet.

Many dealers also buy and sell used gear. Here are a few:

http://www.keh.com

http://www.bhphotovideo.com

http://www.adorama.com

You can buy a used N6006 body in excellent condition for around $100.00 from some dealers now. So, a dealer is not going to give you very much for one that they need to mark up to make a profiton (plus, you'd need to worry about shipping it to get a quote if selling to a non-local dealer).

A page with some examples at Adorama

I'd suggest keeping it as a backup.

What about looking into donating it to a local school? I am sure there are photography classes in high schools that could use it for students who are not able to afford a camera.

Just an idea.

I think that's a great idea, i'm on the yearbook staff at my school and the cameras that we have are far from good condition. I'm sure if you went to a high school they would be more than happy to take the camera off your hands :G
