    My uncle happened to mention the other week that he had a professional film SLR he bought years ago but only used a couple times. Being asian anything more than a hundred dollars is professional to our elders. He said it was a F and some number so I figured it would be a F100.

    I stop by today and it turns out to be a MINT CONDITION Nikon F4. This thing alone with only 4 AA's and NO extra battery pack attached is a lot heavier than my D200 with battery pack 2 batteries AND flash. Probably has less than a hundred actuations.

    Just had to share the new addition. To the left is also a nearly 30 year old manual FE and only has two modes. A-Priority and fully manually. No AF.

    1988 technology. Full frame, 5.7 fps. The AF motor on this thing is also a little faster than a D200, much louder too.
