Modern Classic SLRs Series :
Various Nikon camera models - Message Board/Gu

Since with the inception of Nippon Kogaku until the current Nikon Corporation - they were probably hundreds of camera models as well as million of Nikkor optics being sold thus far. It is very hard to satisfy everyone intention when each surfer coming to this Pictorial History Website (first created since 1997). Over the last few years, I have constructed quite a number of sites featuring a selective Nikon camera models (Nikon F(based on Mike Liu's previous effort, the Nikon F2 series, F3 Series, Nikon F4, NIkon F5, the digital SLR series as well as the midrange models such as Nikon FM series, FA, FE series, Nikkormat/Nikomat and the compact EM/FG/FG20 etc..). Each of these featured model has their respective Message Board to support specific owner of each camera types. However, there are a number of very good Nikon SLRs (as well as the film and/or Digital compacts wer quite exciting too. But due to various reasons, I cannot featured them one by one. This Message Board was created just for that purpose - to provide a gateway for those that were not being featured. You may use it for whatever you think suitable - questions & answers (Q&A) or just make good use of it to share experience among one another. The use of this section of the photography SITE is not confined soly for this purpose, you may also make use of it for other photographic matters. Some of the remarks presented within the pictorial history site was entirely personal and I do not wish to influence any decision prior to any potential purchases or disposal of your equipment. You may make use of this convenience here to present your own views as well. Enjoy.

You are missing some specs on the FB-7 Nikon Compartment Case on your website, that I think I can help with. The case has the following dimensions: H-8" (21cm) W-12.5" (31.5cm) Depth-8" (21cm). It also has a zippered hard lid and a front accessory pouch.

You have a great website for classic Nikon reference. Keep up the good work.

Hi Bob: I don't have a lot of adivce, but here it is for what it's worth:

1) Make a separate listing for each camera and each significant accessory; don't try selling it all as a lot, because there may be buyers who really want, for instance, the 1974 F but not the F4 (and vice versa).

2) Describe each piece clearly.... both in the text and in the heading. People will search for "Nikon F4", or for "Nikon F-4"... so include both versions in your heading so the searches will all find you.

3) Include clear, sharp photographs. If there are any flaws in an item, point them out both in the text and in the photos so that buyers can judge for themselves.

4) Don't worry too much about the price; set a reasonable or below-reasonable starting bid and let the auction establish the value. If you want an idea of what sort of price you can expect, search for the same items under "Completed Auctions" - the prices in green indicate that the item sold successfully; prices in red did not sell and so may have been set too high.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

They say, "That time comes when ... ." Well, I suppose, for me, you could say "That time has come." After thirty-five years of enjoying the purchase and use of Nikon cameras, Nikon flashes, Bowens studio lighting, Nikkor and Nikon lens, motor drives, various filters, etc., the time has come for me to "get real" about the notion that I can't take the stuff with me, no matter how much I love it. So, I am preparing to put all my equipment (which is quite a collection, as compared to that a normal person might garner through life) on the auction block.

My four Nikon cameras (F/1974, F3, F4, and EM) form the foundations around which my entire collection is built. Presently, I am photographing all the equipment as best I can to demonstrate the pride I have exercised in keeping my equipment in clean and faultless working condition. I can honestly say: If I were in the market for a nice piece of used equipment I would be unrealistic to think I would find any in better condition than that which I am selling. The collection, as a whole, really is a testament to careful and prideful ownership.

So, given my intentions — to sell my entire collection, I am soliciting advice from those of you, fellow nikonians, who may care to share your knowledge and experience in selling equipment through internet auction. If you feel you know some obscurities of the process that would benefit my selling of the equipment, I would greatly appreciate your sharing that knowledge with me. Maybe more importantly, I want to give potential buyers the kind of information they need to have confidence in my integrity, and the true character and integrity of the equipment they may be interested in purchasing. I would like for each purchaser to be surprised in only one way — that the equipment condition, mechanically and aesthetically, exceeds their expectations. I look forward to any advice you may choose to share. For you to take the few minutes it will take to share your thoughts will be most kind; and, I assure you I will be most appreciative. Thank you for taking time to read this posting. Bob Fillpot.

Would you have any idea of a source for a capacitor (condenser) for the Nikon BC5 flash unit? The only markings on it are 39.6. Cheers from Oklahoma.
