Kodak Junior Six 16
Kodak Junior Six 16
Chrome Nikon F. 6801xxx serial. Currently no finder.
That's the one I'm looking for: a Nikon F built in Feb. 1967, when I was born.
I have an older and a newer Nikon F, but would like to use a camera and lens as old as I am.
So if you don't want/need it anymore .... Please let me know ....
Pic of the F3P, which arrived today:
^I'll keep you in mind. I'm currently looking at another F that's from mid-'73 and may grab that one.
First, I was able to watch as John Nikon F acquired his latest chrome Nikon F without a finder, although there was discussion of a viewfinder to be located later. We were very close to the hour for the shop to close at that time.
And now for my confession: I do not really know what I have. Honest. Yesterday there were handed to me two (2) cardboard boxes with about half a dozen 35mm film camera bodies, and somewhere around 35 or so lenses in various mounts, types, brands, configurations, sizes, and condition. Some of them might even work. I don't know. I have not yet had a chance to see what is in there. This was one of those "get these out of here for me" type of deals.
It is a terrible thing to become known as someone who likes old cameras. You get offered all kinds of things. I may need to add onto the house for storage.
Nikon F4s, bulit 1995, good condition, to be used wirh my tamron adaptalls for S/W
My first (nondigital) AF, motor, matrix monster...:(. But i use it with MF lenses anyway...
Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515/16. Pre-war, I think, with the 4.5 lens, but a shutter that only goes to 1/175.
Just delivered by a friend of my wife, whose husband found it at the dump! The lens was a bit dirty, but it seems in excellent shape, came with a case and shutter seems to work fine. Bellows like new. I need to pick up some FP4 from the store on Monday to try it out...
Edit: The slow shutter speeds are too slow. Looks like I have some cleaning/relube to do Wish me luck, I have only done this once before on a Yashica GSN...but it did work when I finished, so here's hoping :-)
A collegae gave me his old Konica Autoreflex TC with a Konica HexanonAR 50 mm F1.7 lens. It's like new.
It needs new batteries so I have to find a replacement for the 2 Mercury batterirs PX625, to get the lightmeter operating.
But since it is a fully mechanical camera I can already use it.
I have never used a Konica and I wonder how this lens will perform.
So I had a perfectly good Nikon F with a plain prism as well as an F2A and F3 but wanted F2 plain prism too so I kept an eye out for that. Was checking out my local CL and spotted yet another F also with a plain prism and thought maybe I could use it to trade for a plain prism F2 since it was offered at a great price - one of those investment options. Just as I got it, a plain prism for the F2 also came up! Now I am not so sure I want to get rid of the second plain prism F since I am not one of those catch and release types.
Besides being good picture takers, it also provides compositional symmetry . . . :whistling:
