    HMC150 - Should I keep or sell for barely anything?
    #1

    Hi All,
    I have a personal dilemma, I'm moving to Europe but my HMC150 is NTSC only (23.98 vs 25p). I know that nobody will really buy a used one today with the large sensor craze. It's in mint condition, even though I've shot documentary & corporate interviews with it. It's always lived in it's Pelican case and always had a filter on it. The lens and body look brand new.

    Is there any reason to keep it for Europe? Maybe as my family and YouTube camera?

    Or does anyone want to trade a 25p 50hz version of the camera for an 60hz NTSC version? I'm not willing to sell it for nothing, but then do I actually want to deal with shipping it over to Sweden from San Francisco? It's probably not even worth the shipping cost by itself.

    Any opinions? Thanks.

    Sell it ASAP, highly doubt anyone will want it in Europe with it being NTSC,
    I had a PAL version, great cam upgraded to the AC160 a few years back.

    Sell.

    It is worth very little in the USA.
    But will be worth even less in Europe!

    Part of a much bigger issue that affects us all. Or most of us. It's so much easier to acquire gear than to dispose of it. Logically, we all know we should dispose of things we don't use. But when it comes to it.... there was so much financial and emotional investment in the initial decision to buy. It brought us so much happiness/frustration while we used it. Plus the hassle of dealing with ads, buyers and postage. Easy to say, "sell", and you know logically and obviously that's the correct step, but if you just put it in the cupboard with all the other gear you should have disposed of, we'll understand.
