Sell or Keep Chronos 1.4 8GB? Paper weight?
« on: March 10, 2023, 06:51:59 PM »
I believe this is my first post, so please excuse me if I'm stepping on anyone's toes.

I purchased this camera in 2019 on eBay as a used item. Its specs include:

1 x CR14-1.0-8C
1 x TV Zoom Lens 1:16/12.5-75
1 x GE TV Lens 25mm 1:1.4
1 x 20mm extender tube
1 x 40mm extender tube
1 x 32GB V30 Micro SD
1 x carrying case

I used this camera for shooting slow-motion hail ice cannon impacts on various shingles in late 2019, but since then it has mostly collected dust. Earlier today (March 3, 2023), I contacted support to check its current value, which I estimate to be around $5,000, including the extras. However, after researching on Facebook and eBay, I couldn't find any recent sales, except for one completed eBay purchase for $118, which is almost a joke. I'd rather keep the camera than sell it for such a low price. I'm hoping to get what I paid for it (around $3,100ish), but if that's not possible or if nobody's interested, then I'll keep it for future random needs.

That Camera is currently selling for 4.5k USD, those Lenses you have do not add all that much value (maybe 70 to 200 USD in used Condition i guess).
 A Thing to consider is that the Chronos 1.4 Cameras that are currently sold have a updated Internal Screen from the version you have, which adds a bunch of value.
 Still, depending on Cosmetic Condition that Entire Kit you have there should still be worth at least something like 1.5k USD as long as the Camera is working / Properly Recording and does not have any major defects.
 If it is in Like-New-Condition and comes with original Charger and Batteries, you maybe even able to get close to what you paid.
 But it is far from Worthless fyi.
