For the individual looking for a Nikon P900 around the $500 mark; just saw a p900 refurbished on Cameta Camera for $514. Cameta's refurbished cameras come with a 1 year warranty, whereas, Nikon sells them with a 90 day warranty, I believe. I have bought several cameras from Cameta Camera in recent years and have had great service. Just a suggestion.
Before he starts moderating, he needs to learn how to spell. ehre?
I have the filter & adapter. The Tiffen cpl works great. So far have only found the tube lens hood which has a tendency to vignette at Long zooms. I have a petal hood for my d5500 & like how it works.
Recently got a nikon d5500 & Tamron 18-270 lens. But have kept my two nikon p520's as back up & for the longer zoom. Really enjoy them. Only complaint was the unavailabity of filters that could be used on the cameras. Recently found an adapter that works with a filter and no vignetting. So far so good. Just can't find a lens hood for them that really works. Don't know if that situation has been resolved with the p900. Would like to know if someone has dealt with that issue. Who knows. I might would get rid of the p520's & replace them with a p900 if a cpl & hood would work on it.
Welcome & good luck. You have found a great forum in UHH. Lot's of knowledgeable people ready to help.
Well said, CHG Canon.
Note to the nikon p900 postings: I just checked Cameta Camera and that camera is priced at $515 refurbished; or about $549 with some kit accessories.
Their refurbished cameras come with a 1 year warranty usually whereas the same thing from Nikon has a 90 day warranty from what I have seen. I have bought several cameras from Cameta Camera and had an excellent experience with them, for what it's worth.
Good luck to all that are interested in that camera.
Oops; forgot to list a GEMINI Auto 2x Tele-Converter.
About the Canon AE-1 (X 2) I had referred to previously. Got them with me now. So will list info.
Canon AE-1 (2 of them) bodies. 2 tone, silver and black
Canon lens FD 50mm 1:1.8, with TOYO OPTICS SKYLIGHT(1A) filter 52mm
Mitakon Mc zoom1:4.5 f=80-200mm, with ROLEV M. G. 55mm SKYLIGHT FILTER
This is info listed on the equipmenT. I am totally unfamiliar with Canon gear, much less old gear. He hasn't used them in a number of years, but said they worked fine last he used them. Since then, they have been stored in a camera bag.
My friend was wondering what the above would be worth, as he may be selling them.
If anybody has an idea what they would be worth, I would appreciate info. If no info available, I will tell him to put them on Craigslist at whatever he would like to get for them. Offered to give them to me; but, I don't need them (I have two nikon film cameras plus several lens for them already and haven't been using them.
Thanks fellow UHHers.
Oh, BTW, both cameras have partial rolls of kodak 400 film in them. LOL
Perhaps you should edit... Thanks for the very useful info, Wallace. Oops, I just said info instead of information. Guess I'm in trouble. Oops, again; I didn't use a complete sentence.
Thanks, amfoto 1. I will get with the friend and bring the gear with me so I can be more precise in what is included in the equipment.
Thanks DaveO for the comment about the personal agenda by some people.
The UHH forums are invaluable to me; so, hope to keep getting good info from it.
I don't mind a correction when I post something; but, isn't this a little much to be on a crusade to correct people to fit your criteria? I see typos all the time on UHH postings, but as long as I understand what they are talking about, I'm not going to take the time and be so presumptive as to dictate to someone how they should compose a post.
Thought I had clicked on the members buy/sell/trade--classifieds section when I made the listing. If not, my mistake.
Sorry about that. Guess I shouldn't have been multi tasking. Cameras are Cannon. Lens is not nikon; either Cannon or other brand that works on Cannon. This is the info he sent. If anyone is interested I can get more precise info.
Any way the rest of us UHHer's can help with questions, I know we would be glad to help.
A friend has two AE1 Cameras (program & manual modes - film cameras). Also a nikon 50mm prime lens, a 80-200 macro zoom lens and a 2X teleconverter lens he would like to sell. Includes UV filters. Can anyone tell me what they should be worth, as he probably would like to sell them?
Thanks, fellow UHHer's.
