Oh man yes! I remember the old days of viewing the small inaccurate LCD. But that camera certainly had a charm to it. Really took some nice photos too.

Yes the D3 and to a certain extent the D3s, but the D3 was a step up. As far as classic go I feel the D800 will fall into that category too.

For Nikon the D3/D700 and D300 marked a step forward in their high iso noise. Making them catch up to Canon.

I also have a 100 year old folding camera that is sort of on display. But otherwise no, these TLRs are tucked away with the rest of my old gear (I'm a packrat).

I shoot with my Nikon F2sb's as often as I can- just a pleasure to handle!. I have a Retina ReflexIV, with a complete set of Schneider lenses, from 28mm to 200mm. While a bit "Rube Goldberg" it's fun to use. and the lenses are incredible. I got the whole set on e-bay for less than $200.

I got a set of several Retinas and a bunch of lenses in my collection. The guy who gave them to me said they were his favorites. When I got them I was still shooting film, but I'd already given up on 35mm, so I've never really used them. I was a big fan of Schneider lenses on my view cameras and enlargers.

MissMinh I liked your photo in the other thread, nice camera and a lovely photo of it. Thanks Kelly for finding this thread, great stuff too John and Matt.

I just got an autographic Kodak that actually has the stylus (although of course they don't make the autographic film anymore). The camera's copyright was 1913 - 26? but it's in beautiful condition, I lucked out to get it in the condition for the price. I found something on how to use 120 film in it (seems a lot of people are figuring out how to adapt different sized film for old cameras).
