March 2, 2012. My new job has relegated me to being a small product photo monkey. Great.
Austin Powers, International Man of Mystery (1997) with a Nikon F Photomic FTn (1)
Such an iconic camera this one - and a black body too. Austin has an F-36 motor drive and a Nikkor-Q 135/3.5 lens fitted.
So, for my birthday, my grandpa gave me his old Nikon F camera he bought when he was in Japan in like… 1979 I want to say? I find it just fantastic that since he did buy it in Japan, its instruction manuals are entirely written in Japanese. :|
I now realize that I shouldn’t be learning French, I need to be learning Japanese.
Buuuut, it looks EXACTLY like that silver camera in the picture. Precisely. It’s beautiful. In mint condition. MINT. It’s got a bunch of different lenses and everything. I’m so excited to test it out. I just… need to find a manual for it. In English, preferably.
