There was a time when people KNEW you were a news photog if you carried one. Of course it was big, akward and slow but some people took 'em to the battlefield.
    For example, Joe Rosenthal, who took the picture of the flag-raising on Iwo Jima.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Dont konw if this is mentioned but my Nikon FE wont click the shutter unless
    the wind lever is partway out. So it sticks u in the eye when u look thru viewfinder.
    Did they not use this camera first???

    If you attach a motor drive, you don't have to extend the lever. But if you DO extend the lever and trip the shutter using the motor drive, the stupid thing will jam.

    Apparently all Nikon designers are pirates with just one working eye - the right one .

    I understand what you mean, as I too use my left eye for viewing.

    Nikon's last proper camera was the F2.

    If any of my former customers are reading this, I apologise for selling one of these to you, but at the time I had a mortgage and two teenage sons at university, one in the U.K and one in America and I needed the money

    I think I have one around here somewhere if anyone is interested. RH version, though.

    The Konica AiBORG was mentioned on the first page of this thread and it must be an outright winner. I wonder what Oskar Barnack would have thought about this design?
