p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Where to sell a non-working D700


My D700 got nailed by a large wave at the ocean last year. Nikon says it's too expensive to repair. Now that I have my D800 (with accident insurance), I guess I need to take the old D700 off of mantle above the fireplace and see what I can get for it.

Any ideas on who would be willing to buy it? Anyone have any experience with this kind of thing. There is no sense in just letting it sit around. I had flushed it out immediately afterwards and dried it, so there is no visible corrosion, but it definitely doesn't power up anymore. I know it can't be worth much, but something is better than nothing.

Thanks,

Jim

off topic: what sort of cost are you looking at accident insurance wise? Always wondered. (and had though perhaps renters might take care of it... apparently not)

I bought the add on accidental coverage, there are a few different companies that do that, you purchase it along with your camera. I think it was like $400 for the D800. I had done that for the D700, but didn't get the accidental policy, just the one that extends the warranty as it was $100 cheaper...

eBay is your best bet, someone would buy it for parts maybe even KEH.

Ebay is probably your best bet. There are quite a few cameras and senses sold there in as-is condition for parts. You would be surprised how much older outdated laptops sell there since they seem to be mainly stripped down for parts.

I'll take a donation! I've always wanted to disassemble a dslr and reassemble it without worrying about destroying it accidentally. I actually would pay, I just can't afford much. PM me if interested!

ebay. My water damaged 8008s sat in the closet for years and then I put it on ebay as-is with full disclosure. Got more than I expected for sure considering it was an older electronic film body and working ones weren't selling for much anyway.

HERE is a water damaged 5D Mark II that went for almost $1000. Put it on eBay, you'll get a decent amount still.

Be sure to state that it was flooded with salt water. Salt water is extremely damaging to electronics, as you know.

Salt Water Damage is THE worst of all since even parts like small screws and buttons might be ruined and unusable. So the value of the cameras as a parts camera is greatly reduced to almost nothing. Most likely all boards are ruined and obviously anything made of metal. Some things might be usable but its impossible to know without thoroughly disassembling them camera first.

Even a very brief spraying with salt water can do a whole lot of damage.

Regardless of how severe the damage, if you post it on eBay with an opening bid of $1 and no reserve, there are enough dumb people out there you may actually get close to the price of a new camera... seriously.

I saw where someone bored a hole in the back of a camera and installed a light socket and cheap lens and made a cool looking lamp.

+1!

14-24 would make perfect adjustable reading lamp lens, shades included! Now you gave me a worm to my brain that i should do it with some of my camera even if it works
