I really enjoyed seeing those videos, Miguel. Thanks for bringing them to our attention.
John, I used to have a black F like that. Sold it to fund a black F2. I missed having it, so later I bought another F. I love the F, but not quite as much as the F2. I have read that the F2 is the perfection of the F. Whereas the F is somewhat of an evolution from the rangefinder line, the F2 is said to be an altogether new camera.
I wonder.... Do you suppose that Nikon would ever make a commemorative edition of the Nikon F? What do you think it would cost if they did?
The fact that they did this with their rangefinder makes me wonder about this possibility.
FWIW, my F's Photomic head's metering cells must leak, as they "report light" even in total darkness (lens cap on, viewfinder window covered). In bright light the meter is relatively correct, but in dim (room) light it indicates more light than is actually there by as much as two or three stops.
I just use a Sekonic incident/reflective hand meter with it. Works great.
