look up "S3M" someday, I think 300 were made. Half-frame Rangefinder camera with high-speed motor drive. The half-frame was used to speed up the FPS.

Nikkor-SC 5cm F1.5. And maybe 100 or so other Nikkor lenses. Maybe 60 of those are on Nikon cameras right now.

I remember reading about these models made for the Norweigian Police.


Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.

D7100, D40, Canon M50, and a few 35mm film bodies

If you have a fast enough thumb?

Or a slightly knackered MD-12  -  because they could run film through a standard FM2 at 3.5 full frames per second?
