Nikon Historical Society -- hosted by the founding member Bob Rotoloni and members of the society. The NHS, based the US, has a worldwide membership. Our "Nikon Journal," published four times a year, concentrates on the history of Japanese photo equipment from the perspective of the Nikon Camera Company. The Nikon Journal often includes Nikon information not published anywhere else in the world. This forum provides an opportunity for conversation between collectors and users of classic film Nikons. See forum “stickies” for more information about the Society. If you are a serious Nikon Collector, you MUST be a NHS member. Join at http://www.nikonhistoricalsociety.com/!

What is included with your membership to the NHS?
Your membership in the Nikon Historical Society includes the NIKON Journal published four times a year. It is the most important source of information for the serious Nikon collector. Articles are contributed by NHS members. Topics include descriptions and photos of the cameras, interviews with the designers, and news about collecting. There is a free classified ad section, and letters to the editor.

The NIKON Journal is printed on coated stock, so the illustrations are of very high quality. There is simply no other reference like it in the world! Our editor covers every detail of the Nikon system, using articles submitted by NHS members.

Sample page from the Journal



Content:
While the focus of the NIKON JOURNAL is on collecting classic Nikon rangefinder and early "F" cameras, there are articles on camara repair, and experiences by users. More and more "collectors" are using their Nikon rangefinders as they return to film.

Of particular interest are interviews with the designers of these early cameras, many of whom are still quite involved in the collecting or photo societies in Japan. The Society has a long relationship with the Nikon factory in Japan.

The Journal maintains indispensable data, such as lists of all known black paint Nikons. Without this kind of information you cannot safely buy on eBay, or other auction sites.

Back issues of the NHS Journal:

Originals... $7 in US and $9 Overseas, Copies... $5 in US and $7 Overseas, please contact us at the above addresses for current issue availability and copy prices overseas. Prices may be adjusted without notice on the web site, please contact [email protected] for availability.

We look forward to hearing from you, and meeting at the next convention!

Well of course part of the fun is just meeting and showing off your cameras to others who don't think you are nuts for owning 50 year old cameras.
