    Posted: 13 November 2010 at 02:57
Looking for some help if possible. I have inherited a Minolta Maxxum 7000i 35mm film camera with battery, a couple of lens, 28-75mm, and 60-300mm, a flash, and 4 rolls of fujifile 400.

I have no use for this equipment, it is in like new condition and I would like to sell it but have no idea what to ask.

Can any of you suggest a price?

Thanks.

I guess this shoul be in the sales discussion forum

Anyway, look at KEH, B&H and the like, and go a little under, or check closed items on ebay and decide what a competitive price is.

What lens is that 28-75? The only 28-75 I know of is the Tamron, if that's the one, it's expensive (i.e. over $200,-). If you mistyped and it's a 28-70 (like the Sigma 28-70/3.5-4.5) it's probably worth only $25,- or so. If it's a Minolta 28-85 it's worth about double that, maybe even more.
The 60-300 is probably the Sigma, it isn't worth much.
And that 7000i also is worth a couple of tenners.

Hope this helps.

Oh, and you could of course use the 7000i to photograph and share your results in the film sub-forum.

Oh, and by the way - this is not a K/M camera, but a genuine Minolta camera

Moved to the film cameras section and edited the title such that it's a bit more specific; may get more help there.

Well it doesn't change the fact that those items aren't worth much - but maybe Flying Fossil can be convinced to use this 7000i and show the results here

2ndhand bodies of almost all popular dynax/maxxum bodies sell here for a max of 15 ($20).
I have even seen advertisements were you can buy a new 2CR5 battery for your camera and will also get a good working body for 10 the two together.
Unfortunately you inherited something that will not make you rich.
I have my old filmcamera's and use them with B/W-film and scan the negatives and process them as digital pictures. A very good and funny experience.

I was looking at a 7000 (not 7000i though) with a 50 mm F/1.7 on Ebay at a Buy Now price of £ 73.

I asked the seller if the lens caps were included and got a "No, but I also have another 50/1.7 on sale without camera and with lens caps and a skylight filter included.".

Found that one. Price was £ 75.

So apparently, two lens caps and a skylight filter is worth £ 2 more than a Dynax 7000!

Edit:
$(USD) works. (EUR) works. L(GBP) does not work in this forum. Need to find another trade currency or another forum.

Edit #2:
£
Thanks, Nigel.

Edit #3:
Hm. Apparently, the & pound code does not survive an edit. And apparently, a a space after pound is necessary.

Since Dyxum moved, ironically, to a UK server the £ symbol does not work.

There is a wrokround by typing & pound ; (omitting the spaces) or just use the ISO code for Sterling GBP.

Back on topic, 7000's on their own rarely fetch more than a few pounds on eBay, sad, but true, for a capable little camera.
Away until August 2014 at the earliest.

i bought a Minolta 7000i in excellent condition, with no LCD bleed, on ebay for a grand total of US$50

if you've got one that has bleed in the LCD on the top panel, you're going to get even less for it. Sad, because they are quite capable little film bodies.

Jim,

Is that a Minolta 28-75 f2.8 D lens? If it is, then that is a first class lens and should fetch a decent dollar.

If you can sell the 7000i for decent amount, let me know who bought it, and I'll sell mine as well    Seriously though, a number of colleges still insist on film cameras for courses, and you may be able to get $50 from a student or a little less at a camera store near a campus.

The camera itself is worth nothing, literally. I see them go for $1 on ebay.

The lenses have value. Can you post more info about the lenses like brand and model.
