A number of years ago, I sold off a number of film cameras in my conversion to digital.  Of late, I've taken to shooting more film, so my itch for another manual focus Nikon grew.  I already had the FE, FE2, FA, and FM2.  They're all great cameras, but I still wanted another manual focus "pro model"

 

A young senior at University of Michigan is graduating, and relocating.  He was quite anxious to sell, and obviously needed cash to help accommodate his relocation.  He listed this F3-HP for several weeks, and finally lowered the price to something I considered reasonable.  The camera came with an immaculate 50mm f/1.4 AI-s, 6 rolls of Tri-X and 4 rolls of Portra 400.  A quick agreement was reached, and I was on my way.  The camera was built in 1982, but it's as close to N-I-B as I've seen.

 

Last night I decided on another MD-4 in anticipation of my coming deal.  A local dealer had one on eBay, I bought it, and picked it up later this morning.  It has a few scratches from use, but it's fully functional and runs nicely.

Sweet

Thanks, Dennis.

Love my F3!! Congrats.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
