    Sometimes you choose the camera; sometimes the camera chooses you.

    Just over a week ago, at the local camera store, I picked up a Nikon camera out of their unlabeled junk bin. It was an N90s. When I asked how much, he said $29.95, but that he'd gladly stick batteries in it to see if it worked. I said if it didn't work, I'd gladly buy the Domke strap attached. He said $4 for the strap.
    He put new batteries in and flicked the switch, but the camera's LCD panel stayed dead. So I got the strap for $4 plus tax, with the dead camera attached.
    When I got home, just for curiosity I reloaded the camera with batteries. It lit up instantly and functioned perfectly! I just recently spent a few more bucks on eBay to buy a MB-10 grip to put on it.
    I'll be taking this instead of my FM up to Wisconsin for a trip next month, since the meter in the FM seems to have given up the ghost.

    That was my thought as well, Sirius, but I wasn't going to say anything inside the store.

    Guys, ya gotta watch Steve. He may surprise you.

    Steve and I were talking about my known and demonstrated addictive tendencies with photography gear (yeah, GAS), and I was telling him about my concerns over this, and that if this continued, I might be looking at such things as "treatment" and "rehabilitation." and just to show what kind of sympathy, understanding, and support I can get, Steve offered to sell me another camera.

    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Ahhh...So you were one of the folks I was bidding against (when the F3P/MD4 was first posted). Congratulations! BTW: What is with the bare metal on the drive handle? Looking at the pics, I couldn't decide if the pattern was a QC issue from Nikon, an idiosyncratic wear pattern ( the way the camera was carried?), or abrasions from saltwater spray!
    Some Nikons (F6, F5, F3P, F3HP, F2ASx4, F2A, F2 and a D800), with Ai/Ais Nikkors ranging from 15mm to 600mm; Leicas (M6X2), with Leitz glass from 28 to 90mm and a pair of Hasselblads (500c/ms), with Zeiss glass from 50 to 250mm. A bit of stuff for a no-longer practicing professional, but justifiable for a now-converted hobbyist who absolutely loves taking/making pictures.

    Bradley, it's the latter. PO used the camera for photographing boats (as mentioned in my Nikon F3 FB post) on the water.

    I bought a used Rollei 35s. I admired this camera in the 70's but it was too expensive. Now it is close to the same price, but I have more spendable income.

    Rolleiflex automat X with tessar f3.5. It was cheap because shutter safeguard release is missing - but beside that glasses and camera condition are great.

    Back to square (I have constant love-hate relationship with square format).

    Good morning, Alan Rockwood;

    Anyone who has ever seen a Kiev-60 or the ARAX modified version of it, or the earlier Kiev-6C, will agree that it looks and feels very much like a 35mm film camera that was force fed steroids as a kid. So in that way, I guess that we can say that it can fit in here, even though it does take 120 roll film.

    You might also mention this here on APUG over on the Medium Format Cameras section.
