Nikon F from 1971

We are pleased to offer this wonderful Nikon F for purchase. It’s a one owner camera (bought new in Chicago). It has never been offered for sale before. The serial number is SN 7293919 which establishes a production date between October 1971 and February 1972.

The camera is in mint condition – just a bit off from a mint new condition. It has been very gently used with probably no more than 20 rolls of film ever run through it (that’s likely way high). If you’ve ever wanted to own the legendary Nikon F, then here’s your chance. Everything works as it should and quite simply put this camera is stunningly beautiful!

Nikon F 35mm SLR Film Camera

Simply one of the best SLRs – ever. It’s in mint condition with only the slightest traces of past use. It comes from a one owner home that has a smoke and pet free environment. This camera is ready to roll – just add your favorite film, attach your favorite lens and go create! The Nikon F is a fully mechanical camera – no battery needed so there’s no built-in TTL exposure metering – pure old school shooting. Contact me for a shipping quote to your location. It must be shipped via accountable means with door to door tracking with signature and insurance. With that said I’m sure we can work out a very affordable shipping option for you. Don’t let this opportunity to own this wonderful camera slip through your hands. Additional pictures are available at http://www.ccstudio2380.com (it can be purchased in our Etsy shop if you would like). Thanks, Chris

In the Studio – Kodak Retina Reflex IV

I had a chance to get some new images in the studio of my latest acquisition – this beautiful Kodak 35mm SLR from 1965. I purchased it from a retired Kodak executive who obviously took very good care of it. It’s completely working, even the selenium cell exposure meter! The lens optics are crystal clear and the shutter fires like new.

Kodak Retina Reflex IV – 1965

The Kodak Retina Reflex IV was the last in a long-lived series of 35mm film cameras from Kodak. These were manufactured in Germany.

This nearly pristine example is in fully working condition and it will be available for purchase in our store soon. I’ve just have a few more tests to run and it’ll be set to go.

A beautifully clunky work of art and design.

Filmo – Bell & Howell’s Little Gem

Bell & Howell Filmo Double Run Eight Cine Camera (Model 134-B) made in 1936 – 1937. These cameras from B&H (Chicago) were everywhere and they even went to war during World War II and were still on the battlefields during Vietnam as combat cameras.

It’s a funky cool piece of heavy metal!

It’s a rather small movie camera but it tips the scales at nearly 700 grams! This one still works – wind it up and off you go – just like Disney used to use.

The 12.5mm lens is interchangeable with at least two telephoto lenses!

Check out how small the lens is!

The removable lens is a Mytal Anastigmat 12 1/2mm f2.5 – f16 lens made by Taylor-Hobson in England.

The viewfinder is a direct vision optical finder with two hinged masks for telephoto lens framing. The camera features a variable speed clockwork motor running at 16, 32, 48, and 64 fps.
