Funny, I still have my 995, and I also still have the Nikon add-on lenses, LOL. Up until last year, I was still using the 995 occasionally at work for quick macro documentation projects.


I loved the fisheye lens...........I may have to dig it out of storage and play with it........hell, see if I can get on the front page with it now.

My brother was a news photographer when digital first came out. He's set about collecting all those old Kodak DCS with Nikon bodies that he used to use. He's got a rack full of them at a cumulative cost still well under what any one of them cost new. Most of them still work.

As for me, I think I still have the Sony Mavica with the built in 3 1/4" floppy drive here somewhere.

Both! ;-)

Old School Digital, now there is a new term for me. But then again, my first digital camera was a Sonly FD71, purchased before the turn of the century... Which I still have. (No longer legal for entries as it is pre-EXIF.)

I still tend to think of Old School, as film. Now there are cameras I have too many of... (Sorry ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Lydia For butchering the grammar.)
