Re: My new DCS 14n

I emailed Kodak Professional as suggested by Jarle, and amazingly to me received a nice personal reply the next day. Apparently the part is available from Nikon, but what has probably happened is that the end of the plastic post in the centre of the button has broken off, and doing the repair proper...

Re: OT: Original Apple 1 sold for $50,000

I have most of an early Apple-II boxed up on one of my left-over bits shelves. These things originally didn't sell with cases, so mine is in a homemade wooden case. No neat paperwork or photos to go with it, though. Maybe it'll be worth something someday? ... I hadn't thought about the Apple-I on t...

My new DCS 14n

I've been looking for a 14n, 14ns or SLR/n for a reasonable price for ages, mostly because I wanted to play with my Sigma 12-24 full-frame zoom (bought in 2004 to use with a D70) on a full-frame camera. Just today, was delivered a 14n, bought on eBay Australia for $A83. Was advertised as in rough sh...

Re: Nikon E-series serial numbers

Just picked up some cameras shipped to relatives in the USA. Only one new serial number, E2n 7200099, the others are already listed from their eBay listings.

Very odd that although I now have a number of E series, I have yet to get a Fuji DS labeled one; they all have Nikon labels.

Cheers,
Ross

Re: NASA 28MM F2.0

The sticker on the lens says class III not for flight, so I would guess it has only been used on Earth. The lens cap is really strange; the lettering style looks like 1950s Nikon to me, and it is a screw-in cap; I've never seen anything quite like it with an AI lens, anyway. I am certainly not inter...

Re: Using the D1

Well, after years of trying to get a bargain D1 series on eBay, I finally scored something reasonable, a D1x with several batteries, charger, AC adapter, all rubber intact and not bad cosmetic condition, all working fine, for about $A380. I settled on the D1x as model of choice because it has (just)...

Re: Who won this DS-505A?

Don't know who won that one, but I won this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=380075397534 which I think is an even better deal, considering that it came with 60mm and 105mm AF Micro Nikkors, batteries, charger, etc. I suspect that after selling the lens...

Can DCS 200 work with N8008 body?

Another question. I have a DCS200 bought as a complete outfit, which came with an N8008s body. It works fine. I have three DCS200 backs, bought on eBay some time ago for very little, that work fine but have no camera bodies. The other day, I bought a couple of N8008 bodies very inexpensively. The 20...

Output voltage of DCS330 AC adapter

Hi, all Went to fire up my DCS330 today. It has 3 battery trays and has always been very finicky about which one works and having to have it in just the right spot, etc. Now none are working. Maybe it has died from lack of use, or maybe it has just become slightly more finicky. I would like to try a...

It seems to me that most or all of these must have been used for something unusual. They may look new, but may have been fired a lot of times, mounted on a tripod or in a cradle or some such. Looking at the images of them, many of them seem to have the remains of glue or something on at least the ed...

...I think the accessory was the reason for the very high price. The E2/E3 cameras are often sold with incomplete or without accessories. I think that must be it. I am still impressed by the sale amount. I had thought about bidding myself--it is a particularly complete outfit, and I really liked th...

Re: and a ds-515

But 450 USD is a little bit too much for a DS-515. Also when the included AF-Nikkor 4.0-5.6 70-210 mm is considered. It got 2 bids and sold; I like to see evidence that interest in these cameras is growing, it's just nice to think that others are interested, and who knows, maybe they will eventuall...
