    Free Nikon FE!!!!

    Given to me by a bud who plays in a band, it's a brassed FE with the Nikon MD-12 winder, Tamron BBAR 80-210 f3.8, Quantaray 28 2.8 and Nikkor 50 1.8, Cokin A system and bag, and to top it off it had an unexposed roll of Velvia 50 in it, my favorite E6 film.

    I had always wanted a black-body Nikon with brassing, something that shows its age yet functions perfectly. He said the meter doesn't work, and after a battery replacement, seal replacement and fresh batteries in the winder all is well. I could easily turn it around for a good lick but I'll keep it, just when I thought I could get out of 135. Lol

    Yeah, gotta keep it.
    Sometimes 135 format is just right, and it's nice to have a setup as part of your tool kit just in case.
    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.

    Wow, this story sounds familiar. A couple of years ago a guy who plays in a band gave me a chrome FE that was his Dads. I kept it and it is one of my favorite cameras to shoot with.

    Only had one complaint so far (and it was a one-time learning lesson for me). I left the MD-11 power switch on for an extended duration and it depleated both the MD and the FE batteries.

    I'm with LX...Yeah, gotta keep it.

    p.s. The FE given to me had a roll of some kind of C-41 film in it, which I re-rolled and gave to my long-haired friend. He had it processed and it was some pics his Dad took of their family many years ago. We both benefited from the 'transaction"... I got a great camera to use, he got rid of some "junk" he didn't have storage space for AND got a few memories back.

    A Nikon FE for free?

    I'll take it. How much is the shipping?

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    You missed the OP's gloating point. Apparently you have to be some sort of groupie to get a free FE.

    I am an avowed equal opportunity receiver of any free cameras of any format film.

    I'm actually in need of a door hinge, the part that screws to the body, broke this one on the first film load. Go figure, lol.

    Few questions

    Can I stop-down meter and shoot my pre-Ai glass?

    What does the two-pin connector on the front of the md-12 do?
