I don't have any Nikons, but I do have 3 of the 4 synths that Nick Rhodes typically used in those days - the Sequential Circuits Prophet-5 (seen in the video for "Girls on Film"), the Crumar Performer (used for string sounds), the Roland Jupiter-8 (think the arpegiated notes in "Rio". Some day, I hope to find a Fairlight, one of the first digital samplers which they bought while recording Rio, and used to make that backwards cymbals sound used as the mirror breaks in the video as the start.
By the way, one of Nick Rhodes hobbies is photography. I understand he has a darkroom and he also took the photos used on the cover and inside their latest album, "Red Carpet Massacre". The photos are of 4 very beautiful Russian models...
