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.
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.
You can still get a Sony F900 camera from B&H for US $80,019.95
Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF = US $1,025.00 Reserve not met
Black Magic Pocket W/ Extras = US $700.00 SOLD
Used Blackmagic Production Camera 4k = US $4,600.00
Sony Cine Alta HDW-F900 HDCAM camera F900/3 = US $2,300.00
Sony HDW-F900 (Body Only) = US $3,300.00
SONY HDW-F900 CINEALTA 24P HD CAMCORDER WITH VIEWFINDER = US $3,499.95
SONY HDW-F900 CINEALTA 24P HD CAMCORDER WITH VIEWFINDER #1 = US $3,999.95
Sony HDW F900 Camcorder Body = US $5,499.00
Sony F-900R Digital Broadcast and Cinema Camera = US $24,990.00
Sony F35 Digital cinema camera with interface box HD-SDI out = US $6,500.00
Used Sony F35 – SN 10116 (3283 Hours) = US $8,250.00
Sony HDW-F35 – SRPC1 & SRW-1 HDCam Recorder = US $9,999.99
Sony PMW-F3 Camcorder with S-Log recording = US $3,490.00
I could go on and on listing Sony F3’s but I don’t have 98 hours to spare.
Suffice to say you can pick up a second hand F3 camera for next to nothing.
Canon EOS C300 Camcorder – Black = US $3,050.00 This one is also copied and pasted into another eBay seller from Romania.
Canon C500 4K Professional Cinema Package w/Internal SSD = US $20,785.00
BSTOCK Sony PMW-F55 CineAlta 4K Digital Cinema Camera Body Only = US $26,591.00
Arri Alexa Classic 16:9 with High-Speed 120 fps license = US $38,900.00
And here is something we did not expect to see on eBay a brand new Panasonic VariCam 35 package, and a For.A FT-ONE camera.
For $55,000 I would want them to know how to write VariCam correctly.
NEW Full 4K Variable Frame Rate Camera = US $134,999.95
