Nikon FE2, Kodiang 2009
I can't afford this camera when it came out but
managed to get my hand on it after some online negotiation some years
back. It came with beautiful 50mm f/1.8 E Series which can be seen with
my D80 rather frequently including the one that was used for this shot.
I like the convenience and reliabality of the metering rather than slow
led. The batteries last a very long time so I wasn't actually worried
about the electronics not being able to function. I have shot many rolls
with it and I love the sound of the shutter. This one comes with
honeycomb titanium in pristine condition.
