    I saw someone using this camera out West, taking a picture of a Jackalope!

    It looks clean for a digital camera. I'll bet that it can take some really good digital jackalope photographs on Kodachrome, HIE or Royal Pan 1250.

    Of course its a digital, notice the LCD screen..... on the back...

    Gee, silly me, and all these years I thought a film tab goes there....

    Looks like way, way too much noise, should check his/her histogram :D

    Keep telling them, film has way more latitude :D:D

    I've seen "digital" tripods, and "digital" camera bags. If it's "digital", it'll sell. Oh, I've also seen "Windows compatible floppy disks" ... oh dear, is my U2 cd Windows compatible? :wink:

    "THIS AUCTION IS FOR A NIKON F2 SLR CAMERA W/ SOLIGOR 28-80MM LENS. THIS ITEM IS IN VERY GOOD USED CONDITION WITH TYPICAL WEAR. THIS CAMERA IS FROM THE 1970'S."

    CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.


    "Texas Instruments engineer Willis Adcock designed a filmless camera and applied for a patent in 1972, but it is not known whether it was ever built.[3] The first recorded attempt at building a digital camera was in 1975 by Steven Sasson, an engineer at Eastman Kodak.[4] It used the then-new solid-state CCD image sensor chips developed by Fairchild Semiconductor in 1973.[5] The camera weighed 8 pounds (3.6 kg), recorded black and white images to a cassette tape, had a resolution of 0.01 megapixels (10,000 pixels), and took 23 seconds to capture its first image in December 1975. The prototype camera was a technical exercise, not intended for production."

    See, It's possible!

    Yes, but fit that technology into an F2... camera, not fighter plane. I'd dare say it'd be more likely that it was indeed fitted into the later.
