I wanna sell my low end Kodak camera, got it for about $200 CND. Do you think there would be many willing to buy on the net? Or elsewhere? Or is there any stores or something that buy that kind of thing?

You can always try posting in the FS/FT forum to see if there's any takers. If people reply, then you're in luck. If not, well then your question is answered anyways, right? ;)

my $0.02

I have an old Kodak too, DC3200. I was thinking about the same thing, so I checked out Amazon and I was suprised to see they are selling for $80 to $110 new and used. I think it cost between $150 and $200 when I bought it a couple years ago. Also, do a quick search on eBay to get an idea of what your cam may be worth now. And it always helps to include extras like a case, batteries, mem cards etc... when and if you decide to sell it.

as long as your selling it for a very low price. tech continues to advance too quickly. cameras are still mechanical devices, more zooms more shutter clicks the higher chance u have of failure. kodak is probably considered the lower end of digital cameras to boot. best idea is to just hand it down

Yeah. When I got my Nikon CoolPix 4500, I gave my Fuji FinePix 1.3MP camera to my little brother. Now I'm planning on saving up for a digital SLR. :)
