Well not really. This camera was first introduced in the early 70’s. Its my fathers old Nikon F2.

I took this image with my Fujifilm S7000 and then edited the heck out of it in Photoshop CS5 by over exposing it and maxing the contrast and colour balances and tweeking it in curves. The idea being to give it a swinging 60’s retro feel. Hope you like it! yeah baby yeah!

Exposure: 0.5 sec
f-stop: 2.8
ISO: 200

    I think the Nikon camera referred to was an F (the one before the F2)
