I saw this question here and people are recommending OP to throw it away because repairs will probably cost more than a new item. OP seems to say that is indeed the case in one of the comments.
But in general, do you think it's a good idea to just throw it away? Why not sell it through a used items store as a damaged item? Or give it away?
Personally I don't think throwing away a piece of tech (any tech, not just cameras) is a good idea, especially if most of it is intact, and someone with experience might be looking to buy these for parts or to fix at home and get a lot more use out of it.
What do you think about this? And what do you think about advising one way or another to users?
