Selling My Old DSLR

 

I am planning to buy a new DSLR. Should I sell my current one to get some resale value or keep it for nostalgia?

If you are happy with the resale value of your current DSLR or are benefitting from an exchange offer, go ahead with it.

However, if you’re unhappy with its resale value, it would be a better option to keep it. If it’s still in working condition you can always use it as a secondary camera, convert the body into a pinhole camera or even have it modified (from trained personnel) for infrared photography!
