    and add that it belonged to your late grandfather's cousin and you're selling it on behalf of his sister-in-law. THat will give your listing the authentic ebay feel.

    The FA had a fine run, considering it was fairly primitive electronic camera by today's standards: twenty years for a 'prosumer' camera is pretty good. It's Pro brother F3 will run till the cockroaches take over.

    I remember selling FAs way back when. In a pro-centric store, we did our best to talk serious folks into an F3. Like the F100 ( another fine 'prosumer' camera' ) it was excellent, but not nearly the bombproof pro camera folks thought of when they said Nikon.

    If you still have your wood-burning pencil from Boy Scout days, in addition to Eric's eBay suggestions, you could add one sharp photo showing the subtle image of Jesus lightly burned into the covering of the back.

    Where do old Nikons go to die?

    My closet....sob, sob, sniff sniff, I'm now mostly a Canon digital shooter, sob, sob....but wait a minute! During a very quiet time, I sneaked a Nikon F6 into the house, heh, heh...I could try a roll of film...sshhh, don't tell anybody. I think I'll just have to sleep with it under my pillow. It Lives!

    Seriously, eBay the old thing. Somebody may need a part. If you need a replacement, an FM2N, F3, or for that matter any F series camera in good shape will outlast all others. I know...I have quite a few in my closet. All of the batteries are still good. Still hoping to shoot some film again. I guess like the shoe guys say..."Just Do It"
