    Yeah, it looks more like a non-metered S-mount 'tax... Seems rather interesting how both Pentax and Nikon made their early '80s pro bodies about the size of their '60s consumer models. An F3 is the same overall dimensions and weight as a Nikkormat FTn. Was rather amazed to see that I could fit a Nikon F3 body into a Nikkormat CTM eveready case. Sure, the tripod screw for the case was in the wrong spot, but the camera slid right in, even though the camera has the built-in handgrip.

    2 Yashica TL Electro-X cameras with lens. One black paint ITS version and the earlier chrome non-ITS.

    My first serious camera was an Electro-X. Many fond memories of that camera.

    I just picked up a Canon EF (FD lens mount.) I had never heard of one of these until recently, although I have used a Canon A-1 since 1991. I sought out an EF for its voltage regulated power supply, mirror lockup, copal shutter (125 flash sync) and light meter which works with f1.2 lenses. I found a FL 55mm f1.2 a while back for $25! and found the A-1 unable to meter properly with it wide open. The EF is shutter priority, but since both aperture and shutter speed are indicated in the view finder, it reminds me more of EOS 630 program shift with FD lenses.
    I am waiting on a light seal kit, but shooting a roll anyway cause I can't wait. The EF is my most expensive 35mm SLR at ~$50 shipped. I got it from http://www.kenmorecamera.com/ it was in better shape than I thought it would be from their ratings. They are usually outa my price range on e-Auction and I felt better getting one from a dealer.
    This camera has renewed my interest is shooting my Canon FD lenses. Nikon FE goes on shelf for a while.

    ^Nice. Have had four of the later H3v/SV versions, one of them being my very first camera, back in 1984.

    Nikon F3 in heavy used but working condition. You have to have a F3, but I think my Canon F1-N is better and the body is higher qualituy. The F3 looks a little bit cheap in comparison. But of course it is avery good camera...

    These are my latest cameras mentioned in previous posts this past month (with no photos). The camera on the left is a Zeiss Ikon Contessa S 310 w/ 40/2.8 Tessar from the early 1970s and on the right a Zeiss Ikon Contessa 35 (early-mid 1950s) with a 45/2.8 T Zeiss-Opton Tessar. Except for the meter on the Contessa 35 they both work beautifully.

    The S 310 lens takes 30.5mm filters. Because of the Contessa 35's 27.5mm filter size, all of my Zeiss Ikon Contaflex filters and lens hood (for the 50/2.8) fit perfectly. Happy birthday to me!

    You know, the meters on the Contessa can often be brought back to life. Great cameras - both of them.

    If you're handy with tools, here's how to try a home repair on the meter.

    Well that's exciting! I will give it a try. Thanks Mike. And thanks for your website. Your info helped me decide with these two purchases.
