– Tripod with carrying bag                                      — you don’t say which tripod or bag, so $50 ’cause the two I bought with bags cost that, each

When I add that all together I get:  $1139.94

Tax is  $148.19

Total is $1288.13

So, I fudged a little on the bag and tripod because detail was sketchy, but prices are from Henry’s web page today.  I think the bag must be a smaller size, and the tripod must be a lighter model, or you would be keeping them along with the flash.

How much would someone be willing to pay for used gear, instead of new with a full warranty?  I don’t know.  That’s probably why I still have almost all my old cameras, bags, tripods, and other stuff.  But I still find a lot of it to be useful and will argue that it is more useful to me to have it in a drawer where I can pull it out when I want to, than the little money I would get by selling it.  And, I know it’s history.


If you are picking up a lens, you should know the major stores do price matching.  It is worth a minute to check Aden, Henry’s, Merkle Camera, and Vistek, web pages to price most items before handing over your credit card.  Print the web page showing the item at a better price and take the page with you.   Henry’s will even adjust the price a week later in most cases.
