Nicca III S camera test

Postby PFMcFarland » Mon Jan 30, 2017 4:02 pm

Kodak T-Max 100, W-Nikkor.C 1:3.5 3.5cm, and Tewe zoom finder.

Only problem with the camera is the slow speeds are messed up.

He has acres of these!

I don't know as I'd shoot any of my other cameras if I had one of those! Purty, and fantastic results.

All four items (including the strap in that count) were purchased separately. Body only from a post-Christmas sale at Roberts Camera in Indianapolis, lens was bought for the Canon P (though from the factory Nicca's came with an f2/50mm Nikkor), finder came in a box lot, and the strap from some junk store find I don't remember (but I use it on several cameras).

Thanks, Scott. I'll miss all the refinements on my FSU cameras (such as: combined view/rangefinder; longer rangefinder base; larger 1:1 viewfinder; lever winding; and easier loading), but not the hassle of having to constantly repair them.

Those look very good, and a handsome bit of kit to boot!

Mmmmm. Those are nice. I really like the shadows in the water tower photo.

I saw one of these years ago. The top had been filled and re-engraved with "Leica."

Sort of a shame. It was a very pretty camera. As I recall, the shop was asking $800 or so.
