So in order to balance the book I'm selling some old electronic equipment - old dslr's, music gear etc.
I'm also thinking of selling my DVX100A (UK/PAL) and Manfrotto 745B tripod (701RC2 head).
I was wondering, and I ask the experienced heads here, is it wise to sell gear you don't use or should one keep it for 'backup'/rainy day situations.
My current camera setup is - EX1/Letus, D90, DVX100A - and soon prob 5d mark ii (seems to be winning over the 7D at the mo). I also have a Miller DS20 Solo tripod.
I've not used the DVX in over a year and not used the Manfrotto for much longer.
I've kept hold of them in case the EX1 failed, but tbh I think it'd be easier to rent another Ex1 if I had problems, they're reasonably priced to rent for a day now.
Can the experienced heads give some advice here, at the moment they're collecting dust and have been for a while.

If I don't use it, I sell it. Unless it's making me money from time to time. I held on to my DVX for a while after getting the HVX but once I got it down I let it go.

If you have rental facilities available and know that you definitely won't need a backup camera that you own, sell. Anything that isn't making you money but that you keep around is losing you money in depreciation and storage, so drop clutter when you can.

The back up idea is not a bad one really. Depends if you need the money or just want to make some room in your closet.
