F-301-SLR-DIY-Refit-Tryouts

1989: I made myself a present for highschool graduation with a Nikon F-301. _____ 1999: I forgot the Nikon parked on the roof of my car (a huge van). Just the body was broken, so I bought a new one, replaced the broken body - but it still didn't work :-( _____ 07.07.2012: I found the old camera in some unexpected place, I was taken by nostalgic feelings, disassembled the whole camera, cleaned it, reassemled it again, put new batteries in - aaaand: IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!! I took her and my new Kiev 88 that arrived just one day before out for a walk in the Nordsternpark in Gelsenkirchen, then I took some photos at Zeche Zollverein... And you wanna know what? I am happier with my fixed old F-301 than I am with my new old Kiev88 - even though the F-301 cannot really compete with the Kiev88! It's a matter of imaginary values... ;-)

    Achso, meckern wollt ich auch noch: Hochformat und aufgerissene Blende würde mir hier besser gefallen und Dein gelbes Quietscheentchen hätteste ruhig auch mal in die Pissrinne setzen können ;p

    @knipsomat Du wirst es kaum glauben, aber die Blende stand auf 3.5, mehr gibt das Objektiv nicht her. Hätte ich das Ding doch nur auch mit der Kiev abgelichtet. Und zum Thema Quietscheentchen: Könntest Du mir beim nächsten Mal Deins leihen? Ich gestehe voller Schuld und Gram: Ich habe gar kein Quietscheentchen! Würde sich nämmich in der Tat ganz hervorragend machen! :-D

    Ouh Mann, mit so nem Quietscheentchen könnte man tatsächlich seine Aufnahmen aufwerten- In meinem Kopf setzt sich grad so ne komische Assoziationskette zusammen- Ich geh mal liebver pennen ;)
