Help selling imacon ixpress 132C

Filipe Pacheco , Aug 20, 2009; 05:45 p.m.

Hi,
I'm a professional photographer and in 2005 I bought the imacon ixpress 132C digital back with acessories for hasselblad and mamya.
In 2006 I had some problems with the connection to the image bank and after testing changing cables the product was sent to the factory in copenhagan where it was fully disassembly , the problem was corrected, the products was tested and upgraded to the last firmware.
After that I had no problems with it.
In 2008-2009 I need 3 more digital equipments but we decided to invest in cheaper compact cameras that were enough for what I needed.

Since then, this digital back as litle use.

I want to sell it now, with all the cables, acessories and I can offer also one mamya 645 Pro that I used with it.

The digital back costed me in that time around 25000€ with all taxes.
I need help setting the market value of this equipment now, where to advertise, how to do it and what information more is important.

Best regards to all.

What is the cost of a current, similar megapixel and sensor size back? Obviously nothing exactly similar is available, but close enough. Hasselblad has 16Mp 37mm square back that may be somewhat comparable. Then take 10-15% per year off that price for it being second hand. Needless to say you will not get close to your original purchase price. But why would anybody pay more today for an old back?
