There aren't many Ferrania models, but if it's a Rondine or Elioflex then I'd say 20-25

The Ilford, maybe a tenner. You'd need to see if they work, you can google a manual and just try out the functions without film.

Thanks. The Ferrania is extremely basic. Looks like it could be one of the first box cameras ever produced to me !
I am clearing my late sister's house and just like to check things aren't quite valuable before taking them to BHF charity shop. If we are just talking about 10 or 20 quid I will give them away , but thanks for all the comments.

Sorry about your sister, it's awful having to do stuff like that. Cameras probably not worth much but they are rare so it's hard to say, here are a few links I dug up:
https://collectiblend.com/Cameras/Fe...rania-Box.html
The values on there are always high
https://www.museonicolis.com/en/ferrania-box-6x9cm/

http://www.collection-appareils.fr/x...c8500b20dd3304
If it's cheap then you can always use it as an ornament, if it holds any meaning for you, or just bung it to charity, or on a 99p auction and let nature take its course - the bank holiday is coming, people will buy anything then.

Yes, half frame 35mm slr. Quite a weighty little thing. It has been serviced and comes with a 3 month warranty. Grabbed it off eBay yesterday and it arrived this morning.

You've had a good weekend Kenzie, and finally got hold of a Pen F. Love the cool logo and it's a beautifully designed camera.

Yeah, it's weird, but having it hanging from the strap the Pen looks small, but it's a decent size when shooting. It's an early version of the Pen with the Gothic F and no meter, it's also a double stroke film advance so I have to remember to wind twice. Got a 24 roll on it which gives me 48 shots, I managed 34 or so today. Not much at the boot sales today, one guy had a Prinzflex (Zenit E) with a Helios 44 but he wanted 20. I don't have much interest in them anyway. Had a haggle on the Electro and got it for 30.
