    AE1 is about $100 to $150 , unsure about the N4004 , the AE1 might sell for more but there dreaming , is over 40 years old and therefore the electrics wear out or dry out and no warranty.

    A quick way to find out is to go to eBay and search for these kinds of cameras and see what their current sale price is. The price fluctuates, depending on whether there are people looking for cameras. Right now spring is approaching, and people are more likely to buy cameras than during the winter months. 

    The AE-1 is quite common and it is not autofocus so it has very low retail value. It has the Canon breech lock mount, which has been obsolete since the late 1980s. The Nikon N4004 is autofocus, but it is not a camera intended for serious amateurs, let alone the pros. It does have the ability to accept practically all Nikon mount lenses made so it is more valuable than the Canon AE-1. if you are looking to sell them you are unlikely to get more than $100 for both of them. If you are buying them, then look for the cheapest prices and you can return them if they are not working.

    For the Canon I'd say 150 US$ on a good day, for the Nikon let's say some optimistic 70

    If you put them on ebay make sure you spell Canon correctly.  You can get some very good deals by looking for misspelt items which no one found!

    To be fair, the bottom has pretty much dropped out of the film camera market, and while these are reasonable SLRs, you won't make a fortune on them.

    DCM5150 has a valid point, as the only real shot of selling these things is on eBay - even if a dealer will touch them, he'll give you a stupid price.

    Either go to a camera store and ask or really the best way to find out is to search on eBay and make sure you click in the filters "sold items". This will tell you what people have actually paid for the products on eBay.

    A quick glance on eBay shows the Cannon AE-1 w/ a 50mm 1:1.8 lens  is around $150 (some less, some over $200, some with different accessories and such)
