After posting on Cinescopophilia “With the Weapon Camera Coming What is a RED ONE Now Worth? A Scarlet? An EPIC?” I received emails asking / demanding to know why other camera manufacturers were not included in the original post and what the other cameras are worth now.

Sony F900 Used camera prices

Again, it has to be said that the value for any secondhand camera, will always be what ever anyone is willing to pay for it.

So what are other leading camera manufacturer cameras worth now a few years on?

A quick look on eBay reveals a few of the major cameras are indeed offered for sale.

Prices and sales are mixed with Buy it Now / Auction / Make An Offer, and expect some price change than that at time of print.
