Ah, if you can find a digital back to fit or a retro film photographer, this is nice kit! Sadly, probably not worth more than a few hundred?

In reasonable condition - This is worth far more than a few hundred!!!!! I have seen 501C's  recently go for £300-£750 minus lens. There is a 500 body on E Bay right now for $949.00. As V series are not made anymore they are widely expected to climb in price.

This company will be able to check out, restore, repair and value it for you:-

Do your research and you could get a lot for this kit.

(As for digital backs, film is gradual clawing back popularity. For some aspects it beats digital hands down).

Oh Jivago, you maybe right about the price of a second hand Hassleblad, but I don't really think that film will be making much of a comeback! The good thing is, you can probably get a decent second hand digital back for maybe a few grand?

If you spend just a few hours on eBay you will see that quality film gear, any format, is selling for silly money compared to a couple of years ago. I personally would like to pick up a decent s/h film scanner and they are selling for more than their original release price. MFcamera and lens prices are particularly strong as well.

I am always surprised when people make statements about film useage with no evidence.....the sale of B+W film has increased year on year for some time now according to a report in B+W Photography.

Film certainly IS making a comeback and analogue equipment is gaining more and more value. Films like Fuji Velvia are selling for silly prices amd MF stuff borders on crazy sometimes. Hopefully in the next few months I'll be in the market for some MF gear but I wouldn't mind betting your kit will sell very quick for the right price.
Film is not dead, it's just been sleeping for a while ;-)

This is the 500c...before even the 500cm. It will be a ct lens, not a cf I am guessing. In really nice condition if fitted with an A12 back rather than a 12on it could be worth around £400 +\-.

Film will be around for many more years...sales are increasing again, like vinyl records. Problem is what to do with the film when processed. You could flat bed scan it on an Epson Perfection for ok results but really good scans or a mf scanner will cost a lot more than the camera.

As it happens I scanned a roll of 35mm HP5 this morning that I deved last night. A bit surprised it came out ok as it had been in a fridge for several months since the shoot.....and I used  1yr old D76 so well past its storage life.

I used my Epson V700. I bought it after reading several reviews stating it matched the available film scanners. I know from personal experience that when using it I can get better inkjet prints from 35mm negs than I could wet prints from the same negs.....so that is one thing that can be done with film......scan it.

I get good quality 35mm scans but move up to MF and the quality of the resulting prints is outstanding....A1 is no trouble at all (not that I have an A1 printer but I have cropped images such that I am working on an equivalent enlargement.

Tucked away in a cuboard is my previous Epson flatbed...a 3200. That too produced very good prints from MF negs.....and I have seen them on eBay for well under £100 s/h.

Just to put things in perspective, I was offered a Nikon MF film scanner a couple of years back at a very good price, and was able to experiment with it for a couple of hours. Later I scanned the same negs with my V700. The Nixon images when pixel peeping seemed marginally better...but when comparing prints....the V700 was easily good enough and a close second to the Nikon in my opinion.

In some situations something like the Nikon might be justifiable but for 99% of cases the Epson will be more than suitable for most people. In most cases the ability to properly expose and develop suitable emulsions will be more critical than the scanner.
