    Just curious if anyone could give me some feedback on what I should ask for this camera.

    It's a Sony DSC-S85. Review is here. Click Me.
    The camera is in near perfect condition and I have not taken ~300 pictures with it. I have a 16MB, 64MB, and 128MB memory stick along with a card reader. Original box, owners manual, etc. I may not have the software that came with it but it was pure junk anyway.

    I bought my wife a Canon SD200 and we use it so I never use the Sony.

    It's an older camera but the spec's on it are still pretty on par with camera of today. Not top of the line camera but you get the point.


    I really don't want to go through ebay so I'll post it here in the For Sale section first, just was hoping someone could give me some honest opinions on how much I could get.

    I recommend looking at completed listings on Ebay and seeing what they go for in similar condition. If you are offering it on a forum, generally you'll get less than on Ebay.

    Good idea.
    I just figured with ebay fees it would be better sold elsewhere. I'll take a look and see though.
    Any other suggestions?

    Quite honestly, you won't be able to sell it anywhere else. Any enthusiast sites won't be interested in older technology, and you are more likely to get LESS money anywhere other than Ebay.
