    I wish I'd never gotten rid of mine. With the plain prism they had great balance and were such sweet, simple machines.

    The last Adult Nikon.
    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.

    Just glancing at this... a long, long time ago (1978?) I handled what I think I can recall as being an F2 Photomic? Is this what this camera is? For my small hands back then, it must have been quite a haul-up (being confined to a wheelchair with distrophy at that time, since long, long recovered). But a few years later I was the owner of a Nikon F3, probably the next new kid on the block after the F2? Fascinating that the F2 workhorse is still in use and much loved by so many. I vaguely recognised it from the photo in the posts. I haven't seen one second hand for many years so I guess they are rare.

    Not too rare. Ebay has quite a few for sale in various states of repair.

    I found 3 rolls of Fuji Pro 160, in my freezer. Expires 2014.
    I found 2 rolls of XP-2

    I better use it up.
    Out of date?

    My F ('68) is the newest camera I use regularly. The other stuff goes back to 1905 or so, and I use that pretty regularly, too.

    Out of date? really?

    Correct. You need a Graphic or Graflex with the slow traveling shutter curtain, use a low tension setting and the smallest slit.

    Ah yes...the Photomic. The only problem is you have to replace the nuclear pellet inside it every 650 years.
