Looking for appraisal on DVX100a

Hi everyone--I'm wondering if anyone could give an educated guess on how much I should ask for the following DVX100a package:

1. DVX100a in great condition with 609 hours on heads
2. PortaBrace bag
3. UV and Polarizing filter
4. Century Optics .6x Wide Angle adapter

Curious to hear thoughts. Thanks!

Peter

I don't own a camera YET, but I noticed no one has commented yet so I'll give my input...I'd say that since the dvx100b is out (and while it's not drastically updated, it is a new model) you, and most people selling the 100a, shouldn't expect to get anywhere near the $3000 you pay for a new 100b. Also, if I were looking to buy a used camera with accessories like filters and lenses, I don't think I'd want to buy a filter or a lens with a scratch on it...if the lenses and filters are in perfect condition, though, I'd be willing to pay close to retail price for them, assuming they're lenses or filters I'd buy anyway.

I hate to give a number, for fear it might insult you, but as long as you're asking, if I were to make an offer for your gear, I'd say about 2000-2300. I think people ask for way too much when selling a camera, but they must realize a used camera or accessories do not come with warranties or any indication of their history, besides outward appearances, and cameras (and any other electronic, for that matter) lose value by the minute, because technology advances so quickly.

That is a huge amount of hours. Considering I got my DVX100A with 18 hours on it for $2300.00 a few months ago Id say try and get atleast $1900-2000.00 for it. The century wide angle will help out, im sure youll get near $2300.00

Thanks for the advice guys. Sounds like something around 2300 would be appropriate for the package. I'll go for that.
