Why would anybody pay $500 for used stuff when it can be get
new, say from B&H for much less than that?

You should check the current prices...

Whoa, guess I should've checked the price before I put a price down. I was merely going for what I paid for it $-200

Alright, so what would be a better price for all of that stuff included then? No way I'll drop the price below $400...

I would say that It might be easier to sell just the camera related equipment.Would you still be using XD memory and just upgrading the camera? Prices of digital cameras are dropping fairly quickly,so its hard to get back all the money you put in them,like Dacol said the prices have gone down quite a bit.By buying another camera that uses the same memory you might not quite lose as much.This plus the fact that there are also remanufactured cameras out there also which can be gotten at quite a discount. If you sold just the camera,you might be able to get between $250-270 including one set of batteries and the 2 smaller memory cards. Just what i've seen on Ebay

I'm upgrading the the FZ10 or FZ20 which uses SD cards and a battery pack. Thus the reason why I am selling everything as a big package. When I get the new camera, I won't have any need for it.

Thebest way I've found to get rid of a camera is to find someone you really like and give it to them.

I sold my C-730, 128MB card, two sets batteries, case for about half of whatI paid new after a little more than a year - and was happy to get it. Prices on new point & shoots just keep dropping, its just the way the amrket place is right now. Anything is only worth what someone is willing to pay, so I advise you do your research on ebay completedauctions before you list.

I've had great luck posting on www.photo.net. They generally have a very active classified area & the folks are there for photo equipment (not beenie-babys).
