  • Wow! Exactly my thing! I have repaired many FEs and FGs that way! I tried flicking all the harmlessly flick-able levers and springs on this one. Including the one you suggested. No luck. Somebody ...
  • I opened the bottom plate and this is how it is. Wondering if any Nikon geeks can throw any light into what might be the problem under the hood. Film advance and shutter is stuck. Thank you!
  • Thanks for the suggestions and comments! I have a functional F2 with a photomic FTN finder which I use normally. Waist level finders are interesting but hard to find around here. I use it without ...
  • Wow! You have one! Sorry for the embarrassing post. Please delete it if possible.
  • Thank you! I am only used to the metal ones and was confused by the seamless appearance.
  • Moderators! Somebody, please delete this! Just found that it is the titanium foil. I was confused by the look of it.
  • Created discussion thread Rare Nikon F Cloth Shutter?
    Found this one from Junk. Can anybody tell me if it’s the rare Nikon F with cloth shutter? Did I strike gold? Looks more like a paper shutter to me. Please delete the thread if it’s a false alarm ...
  • Wow! The TX adapter fits on a T4? Are you sure it is a T4 and not a TX? I have heard that the opposite is possible (T4 adapter on a TX) but never this.
  • Going through the same pain in Canada. Got a vivitar 200 mm f3.5 with T4 mount and I am looking for an adapter to use it on my Nikons. There is a guy making it in Italy but he charges about $100 ...
  • Exactly! I use it sometimes for red rooftops or buildings against the blue sky and it does the opposite to both. Lighten one and darken the other. It's fun. I stopped using digital for casual ...
  • To be fair it's sometimes really helpful also in bright sunlight on older cameras with pretty slow shutter speeds. For example my Minolta had only a 1/500 Max shutter speed. So many times, ...
  • We have a club here which lets us have 35mm Black and White films and also lets us develop it in its dark room. I started using 35mm film after joining it. I have couple of old film cameras ...
  • Thanks, John! I will keep an eye out for it. Anyone here think that this Vivitar 200mm will focus to infinity on a Nikon body if I manage to get a T4 to F adapter for it? It seems to a very rare ...
  • Lol! I got it for Schnieder filter (B+W 092 Dark Red). It was a package with the filter. So it's just the box but with the filter, it wasn't a bad deal at all. Thanks!
  • Thanks Brian! I frequently use manual lenses on my 5300. They are mostly for my FG. Got this interesting 200mm f3.5 vivitar recently. It's a T4 with a Minolta adapter. A friend sent me this to try ...

  • Created question thread Lens mount identification
    Hai! It's the picture quiz guy again. Sorry for constantly showing up with these weird images asking for solutions. I was looking for a Vivitar T4 mount to Nikon F adapter and a friend gave me ...
  • Thanks a lot everyone. Sorry for the delay in responding. I was out of the grid for a while. It is, in fact, an extra focus screen case.  Thanks again!
