Yes, I got one in the cupboard, I don´t use, yours for cheaper than that! I doubt you´d get that much for a 10D nowadays! Depends how much you are into photography, it can be very expensive. I had the 5D, that cost around £2,300, and that has been replaced by the 5D MK2, which cost slightly less, throw in a range of lenses costing between £400 and £1,300, it can soon mount up. File sizes are now huge, so a few extra 1tb external HD's, Photoshop, Capture One etc, But I never begrudge a penny I have spent on photo gear, and thankfully sales pays for most of it.

They do sell for around that though, for a good condition model.

I haven't even bothered trying to sell the 10D to be honest, I thought it would be worth so little, I'd just keep it as a spare, but that was about four years ago and have never used it since. A nice camera though, just preferred the full frame camera when it came out.
