X-Posted from the GAS thread... Picked up a second Nikon F locally - previous one was from Japan and it worked fine but the seller didn't mention the stuck prism head (not really a big deal but it would be nice to clean it out). This one is in better nick, prism comes off as it should and only has a bit of cosmetic wear to it.

Quick inspection just in case any of these exhibited signs of imminent failure due to the recent Oly announcement. I should probably mark this section of the shelf out with yellow hazard tape.

Actually, they all, more or less, look as they're on the verge of breakdown. Boy, am I happy that I go for Pentax! 📷

Replacement(s) have arrived, long story I purchased the first one untested but was told it worked fine to only get the second one that has been stripped down cleaned and checked, they both appear to work fine so will run a roll of film through each of them and make up my mind what I'm going g to do, I may end up keeping bothView attachment 804631m
I know you posted this pic several months back but I've only just seen it. The Trip35s are nice but much more interesting to me is the fact that you appear to have a radiogram....
If we can diverge from film cameras slightly (!) can you tell us more? For example age, manufacturer etc?
If others are interested maybe we could start a thread.

Hi Richard
its a Ferranti A1016 valve radio from 1959 that has been restored (not by me) and fitted with a bluetooth receiver so I can stream to it from my PC/tablet/phone while still maintaining that lovely valve smell/glow, sounds great, i'll take a better photo when I get home

My impulse buy earlier this week arrived. And I’m dumbfounded. The seller advertised it as “unsold stock” or something along those lines, and I just highly doubted this 40 year old camera has been languishing in a box it’s whole life. Well, I’ll be damned if that hasn’t been the case. There isn’t a single sign of any use whatsoever. Yes, the seller replaced the leather (this models leather notoriously falls apart), but otherwise it’s literally perfect. Any imperfections you see, have come from me in the last few hours of playing around with it! I just bought a brand new 40 year old camera...factory box, warranty card, strap and all! Can’t wait to put some film through this!

Not a classic by any stretch, but I wanted the lenses for a Sony A mount I just bought. Everything you see here including the original receipt ($700+ in 1990) and all paperwork. 7000i, 70-210, 50/1.7, 2000i flash, wide angle flash diffuser, eye cup, eyepiece block for shooting in bulb, case, and 6 rolls of film, $50.
