Camera Porn Friday

Often simply written as "W/NW" - your favorite photos. Explain them, or let your photos (film or digital) speak for themselves.

Nice! I kept looking for one of those to go with my N2020 but all of them I found had the same problem of severe battery corrosion. Maybe someday I'll find a decent one.

I gave the N2000 away a few months ago, sorry I didn't know you wanted one.

Oh, that's okay. I have one, it's just that the poor thing had the bad corrosion, but cosmetically looks okay. I kept it just as part of the collection, but since I don't shoot much film anymore, I've not been interested in getting a working example.

Cute little camera, seems to be more than capable in your capable hands.

I've got a similar "format" Ricoh 500G. The only downside is that it is shutter priority and manual - I much prefer aperture priority.

Thanks, Paul. My first compact was a Ricoh 500G. It's still around here somewhere. I need to replace the light seals and had to find a large enough piece to be able to make a custom fit. Just haven't gotten back to completing the job.

The Minolta HiMatic series is great, and the 7 model of the series is probably the most sought after. That 40/1.7 lens is very good. Excellent results in your outdoor test!
