I just know I'm going to get hammered for saying this, but I don't understand why everyone posts pictures of their cameras. Everyone here knows what a S2 or whatever looks like, and truly, because they're all in very nice condition, they all look the same.
For about a pico-second I actually thought of taking one of these very nice staged close-ups and posting it, but then I reconsidered. Why bother? It's only a run of the mill chrome S3, something everyone here has seen a zillion times, so it's no big deal. And yes, I do love my camera. It's great for taking pictures.

Wouldn't expect any other type of reply from you, Robert. You have, afterall, made the same point on numerous occassions

Taking interesting quality photos of equipment is a skill in itself, and I can appreciate it, when its well done. I enjoy these threads, just like I enjoy other photo threads.

Ok, so you're not into gear photos ..... so maybe you could post some pictures you've taken with your S3 sometime. I'd like to see some someday

I have made my feelings on collecting known before. And they haven't changed. but I'm not inclined to get into that again. Nobody wins that arguement. So collect away, if that's what makes you happy. And I'll just use my cameras to take photos.
I've got two shots made with the CV 21 posted in my gallery here, if you're interested. I've got others not yet scanned which I'll post when I do.
Also, you can see more if my work almost all done with SLRs at
www.nikongear.com/alb/thumbnails.php?album=153
I'd love to hear your comments on some of those photos.
regards,
Robert

Duh, which is why I made the comment in this thread.....
No Kiu, I'm not absolutely certain 100% about that. So what? If a stranger or tyro shows up and says, "I've never seen an SXYZ", someone will tell them where to look or post a picture.
Post pictures, or not as you like. Whatever makes you happy. All I said is I don't get it. Nothing more.

You can see a shot of an S3M at Steve Gandy's site in the classic camera profiles.

Hi Robert

I love my Nikon gears because they are so beautiful and charming. Also I'm fond of taking photos with them. (actually, todays I'm using my RF quiptment more than my DSLR!) You can see my photos just click the link which placed at the bottom of my post.

I want to take photos of my Nikon gears before they're worn out and had some dings or dents by using. And some people want to see Nikon rangefinder lenses and bodies with qaullity photos, especially Who just entered Nikon Rangfinder's world. (including me~)

And...Sorry for my poor English, I hope you understand my opinion.

First time posting in this forum. I spend alot of time ( too much ) at fm.com. Lots of great looking cameras and I like to look at them! So, before I share a pic of my newly acquired S2, I got a dumb question--I'm a RF newbie. Is the lens cap for the 5cm 1.4 43mm? Anyway, I love the way the S2 feels. Much nice feel than my D300!

Yes, the filter size is 43mm, so is the cap.

Although the lens you have on your S2 is actually from a Nikon S!

Thanx alot on the filter size thing. The S 50mm will have to do for now--how did you know it was a S version? I've already put a roll through it using sunny 16 rule. I have a Voigtlanger VC II coming. I see the slope is getting slippery!

What I don't understand is how someone who doesn't understand why everyone posts pictures of there cameras made it through 78 posts of pictures before making that comment. You must like looking at them.

I enjoy seeing the camera pics because it is interesting how everyone presents the cameras. Will it be a standard "mug shot", or something more creative? Moody lighting? Plain background or something special? Reminds me of a photography class assignment where everyone is supposed to take the same everyday subject and shoot it however they want.

A 1947 Kodak lens on a Nikon S3... I'm not sure what this lens was made for, got it with a "bunch of stuff". The top shutter speed is only 1/100th (or so), and it is unmarked. An experiment with left over parts from the 5cm f2 Sonnar collapsible lens mount. I believe that the "Anastigmat Special" is a Tessar formula lens, later renamed the "Ektar".

Well, its my first hour here, and I DO like looking at pics of cameras. The only piece of Nikon gear I have is a Nippon Kogaku Varifocal viewfinder, 3.5 to 13.5cm, with the pretty parallax lever at the rear, and that lives on ANOTHER breed of rangefinder....hope that isn't sacrilege or something!

Nikon S2 Black - Moving sale find

Nikon S2 Black - Moving / Estate Sale find

I thought I'd share since the thread is Show off your Niikon RF.

I stopped by a moving sale about 10 days ago and bought a box full of camera odds and ends. I had thought the black case at the bottom was empty since other cases in the box were. The guy selling the stuff mentioned a camera in the box,
that his father had. I thought he was refering to the broken Yashica TLR that was there. It took me 3 days to get around and exam the items in the box since I thought there wasn't really anything to get excited about. I was wrong! When I opened the black case on the bottom of the boxI got pretty excited when I saw what it was. I felt a little guilty about it and returned back to where I purchased it. I was told by his exneighbor that he had left and moved the day before to somewhere in Europe that was unknown.

I am still excited about it .I can not wait to get some time and shoot my first roll of film through it. The only problem I have with it is a good problem - its condition is near mint and I am afraid to use for fear I might ding it, scratch it, or have it stolen.

Can anyone venture an amount that I should try to get it insured for?

Thanks,
Calphotography

Is this the same camera that's on Craig list?

A while back someone over at fredmiranda.com found a Leica RF--can't remember model--at a thrift store and paid only $5.00 for it. No one believed him until he posted pics of the camera and the price sticker still on the camera. Since then I always look out for "old" cameras in thrift stores and yard/garage sales!

Nice find, but I too wonder where the $13,500 price came from.

The price came out of both a little ignorance about Black S2s, about the current marketplace, and not so much greed but REALLY liking the camera. I felt if someone liked it more than myself and wanted to pay the price then that's fine. I have not been in touch with the current marketplace.... I never thought I would have a Black S2. Looking for current comps was a little difficult.

I did list it on Craigslist along with my MS - I unfortunately can not justify having both cameras ... I am wishing to only keep one - right now I am more excited about the S2 Black. I have an appointment tomorrow to show the MS outfit.

The Yashica was a Yashicaflex that had been abused and forgotten about. It was in terrible condition ...

The serial number of the camera s 6170997 .... I beleive it to be a fairly late version of the chrome dial. From my understanding they started making the black dial pretty close after that along with the black/chrome lens.

There is some question if the camera would have left the factory with the black / chrome lens ... I do not know. It seems with the amount of use that the camera has had, which isn't very much judging by the condition of it, why would the lens have been replaced like so many of them supposedly did? Like I said I am pretty ignorant about S2s, I just have alot of questions

By the time this camera was manufactured, the black and chrome lens was being produced, it is likely that it left the factory that way.

Most interesting is the black case.... Now, that's VERY uncommon, although common for a black camera.

Kiu
You're right that's not the popular belief .... I was trying to figure out why so many black lenses were separated from the S2 Black bodies - nothing made sense. I first thought there may have been something inherently wrong with the black lens that it had to be replaced but that's not Nikon's M.O. and the lens is the most sought after with the S2s. There could not have been so many lenses damaged after they left the factory.. It only makes sense to me that they did leave the factory with the lenses. I think it was on CameraQuest site that I read that Nikon had mixed and match parts to use up the stock they had. That was the reason there are different variations of the S2. To me it makes sense that they would do the same with the lenses and bodies. But here again I do not know, I consider myself ignorant pertaining to Nikon RFs. To me, it seems like the only logical explanation.

Again I am trying to learn more about the camera. You said the black case was very uncommon. I take it thats because black cameras are uncommon ? were there any other type of cases for the black cameras?

Thanks for sharing you knowledge,

MS - another estate sale find

Thought I would share this one as well.... do not worry I am not as confused on this one as I was or am on the S2 Black

I know no one will probably believe me, but this was also an Estate sale find a couple of years ago. What makes this one nice besides all it came with is that it has the guarantee , all of the factory inspection certificates on the camera, lenses and varifocal.

It also came with the orange and white Nikon M manual but along with it is an instruction sheet from the factory explaining the sync operation of the camera that appears to be type written. Did the MS have its own manual or did Nikon just hand out the extra instruction sheet until they changed to the S ?

My choice is the 85mm, definitely. I used to have a 105/2.5 in LTM (my first Nikon RF lens at all), but I used it quite rarely, due to it's large size and the fact I prefer 85 over 105. Although the chrome 85/2 (LTM) is somewhat heavy as well!
Now I add my black 85mm here (maybe I'm a collector of this focal length)
I love the size so much that I always wondered why the 105/2.5 is so much more common. Until I found some original retail prices: 85/2 was 175 USD whereas the 105/2.5 was just 152.50! So probably most buyers bought the just released 105/2.5, more "lens for the buck" than the "older" 85/2...

If it were not for the fact that the 50/1.4 Millennium is such a great lens.... It would be a 35/1.8 and an 85/2 black on an SP!

Here's one of my chrome dial S2 cameras with 5cm f1.4 lens, correct shade with its box, boxed filter, body cap, and instruction book.

CLACK! The sound gets a bit getting used to, but with the S2 it becomes endearing.

Going for a ride this weekend to test the fix.
