TerryGee, are you just selling the camera body, or are their extras added in too. What price?

I'm still considering options, but right now fstopopen's camera would be a great deal.

All original packaging, extra sony battery, 128 stick. $500. includes shipping in US. Paypal payments only.

Also selling a Minolta Dimage 5 3.3mp camera...

Hey fstopopen,
I'm interested as well, have been contemplating getting a new camera for some time. Now seems like a great oppurtunity and a great deal, put me on the list!

2 of my uncles had f717s (one swapped it for a SLR) One feature I really like is the manual focus ring (instead of just buttons to press)
05/24/2004 05:58:50 PM · #9
the f717 is the coolest thing i ever owned. I knew nothing about photography getting into this camera, and now know how to use full manual in about any situation. its a good learning toy.
05/24/2004 05:56:19 PM · #10
cool. you just let me know. I'd love to sell it to someone on this site, just to see the images it is producing. like giving away a puppy, but still going back to the farm to visit.

I must say that from all I have read on this site and various others, it does sound like a great camera. I have to weigh a few other factors, however...
a) my children expect to eat occasionally
b) the electric company expects to be paid regularly and on time (darn them, anyway)
c) for some bizarre and unknown reason, Centex thinks that we should have to pay for the right to live in our home. Who knew?

Seriously, it is a great deal and if I come up with the cash in the next 24-48 hours, you're at the top of my list. :o)

lol. If you are indeed interested, just email me at fstopopen@cox.net Laurie. This is the camera for you. Especially coming from another sony, you will be familiar with some of the sony-specific functions. I'll certainly take a money order, or paypal, or low monthly payments of $1 a month (after a $499 down payment) lol. My wife an I were looking for something to do for memorial day, so I could even hand deliver this beauty to you if you want.

Uh, OK...Boomer, you just send drake a money order for $500 and I'll send him my address... :o)

I would definately reccomend it (of course I am trying to sell it. lol) but seriously, when I bought my 717 I didn't know a darn thing. That is the beauty of the camera. It has a very good fully automatic feature that will take stunning pictures, but it can also be set to manual when you want to tweak the imaging. It is a very, very versitile camera, and I have loved taking pictures with it.

Patience, you see, is not really one of my virtues, I suppose. :o)


Yes, I would (recommend it). It makes sense to me to get one of the best compacts ever made for a good price to start with, rather than upgrading via several cams to get to a point of satisfaction.

I got my Sony F717 this past Dec. I am a senior citizen and have had no trouble learning which button to push. I love it

Sounds like a great deal. I love my 717, and even if I had a DSLR I'd keep it around for low angle-shots (The tilt lens is awesome!).

Good luck selling!

as I have discussed in a previous forum, I am going to be upgrading my camera. If anyone is interested in purchasing a sony f717, which is an awesome camera, I will gladly sell it to you for a mere $500 plus shipping. This camera is in good condion. No scratches on the lens, or bad pixels. Feel free to view my portfolio to see the pictures actually taken from THIS camera. I will include a 128m. memory stick, and a fm-50 battery. I will also throw in a usb memory stick reader.
