I own video production co. for 18 years. I often work with partnering company, owned by afriend. Last year my friend bought two new cameras ($7500./each) to use conjointly on mutual projects and split the profits equally, under our "vocal agreement" that when I made enough money, I would purchase one of the two cameras from him. (mo monetary value set at the time). Now, a year later, I'm interested in purchasing one of the cameras. Has they're "used value" degraded? Should I pay the original $7500. price? Just to add a wrench into the mix, I can now purchase the exact camera new for $5500.
