Re: Nobody wants my D70

I am only aware of one company in the UK Advanced Camera Services:

http://http://www.advancedcameraservices.co.uk/

It will cost around 300. I had my EOS 20D converted but it was in good condition. You need to be confident your D70 is in good condition and thus worth a further 300 investment. This is definitely the best way to do IR. There is some advice and pics on my web site which I will update soon.

Re: Nobody wants my D70

Have you tried getting a sale price from either Camera World, London Camera Exchange or Mifsuds ?

Re: Nobody wants my D70

Ive seen them go for 175 ish yet i did recently try and do a trade in at LCE who basically offered me the loose change in his pocket Im not expecting phone numbers but im not giving it away for them to make a killing althou i must admit ive knocked LCE down on a few S/H items ive bought from them which just shows what they try and mark up to Jacobs in New Oxford street are also manovable to a point yet alot of their stuff looks like its been found on a bombsite. I would like a D3s but one daughters wedding and the other daughters university hasnt left much scope on that one for a while if at all. Seems the D300 will be staying for a while yet

Re: Nobody wants my D70

Same here I have my D70 and D300 up sale for months and no replies, yet in the press the D70 will cost you 179 and the D300 600 to 700, I have a package put together and still no offers, I still use these cameras and they are great so perhaps its the mp count or maybe everybody is playing the waiting game!

Re: Nobody wants my D70

As my son uses the kitchen table as a electronics work bench when the various large light units from various nightclubs are repaired and returned ill book it in at "Sod ur sunday dinner im soldering ltd" for a fast and rapid repair. Ive only had wires hanging the ceiling for two years after a "suggested rewire" whilst the builders were in.
