CP+ 2016: Things we found that had been cut in half

Here's a blast from the past - a Nikon F from the early 1960s, cut in half good and proper. A period of huge social change, the 1960s saw revolutions on several fronts - sexual, social, political and photographic. This was the decade of TTL metering, removable prisms, wideangle lenses and motor-drives. Before the 1960s, the idea that a professional camera could be displayed like this - bisected, with its delicate parts exposed to public view - would have been unthinkable.

How much has changed. Yet how much remains the same.

This Nikon F could be yours for only ¥248,000 (~$2200). Superglue not included.
