    I've seen a few rebel XT's go for roughly $500 Canadian. I'd probably just sell the body alone and piece out the other stuff. I think you'll end up getting more in the end.

    If you are staying with the Canon EOS system you might want to keep the 50mm lens.

    For prices look at KEH at keh.com and figure those are the high end of the range. You as a private party can get maybe 80% of KEH's prices

    Kevin - I cringe at the thought of you taking a significant loss in selling your gear. Are you sure you want to 1) go to film, and even if you do, 2) can't just pick-up a film body in addition to your digital gear (and camera bag)? Film bodies seem to be a dime a dozen these days. I'm going to sell my Nikon N80 on Ebay soon and I don't expect it will fetch all that much.

    I want to go strictly film for a year or so. With a Digital body around I doubt I will use the film much. Plus I could use the cash, so it is a 2-for-1 Deal.

    Considering how cheap this can be had nowadays, a loss is iminent. I am also unhappy with the camera because I feel like it slows me down. I can't afford to go 20D or 30D at the moment, so I am going to do film and learn proper photography.

    I am hoping I can get a decent amount for the camera. We will see. I have it listed on eBay now for $900 OBO. If you are interested please check it out.

    I have been scanning my large collection of negative. In many cases the quality of scanned film blows away the Nikon D50. Digital has advantages but in terms of image quality film is still the winner in 2007. This may change when they come out with afordable full frame digital bodys in the 24MP range. I notice Hasselblad is selling a 39MP DSLR now with a frame size about double a 35mm frame. So right now it's a matter of price not technology they do make DSLRs that can beat film but most can't afford them

    Selling a 350D that you are not planning to use may be a smart move. It's value will decline over time and plumet if Canon releases a new low-end model in the next year. Digital bodies are not an investment like a pro quality lens might be
