Re: DCS 100 - DSU/SCSI nightmare

We used to use a liquid that we wiped on contacts. I can't remember what it was called cause we called it snot. That's what it looked like a clear thick consistency that made the name appropriate. I can't really say that the stuff worked. Nothing seemed to work that you could tell. Don't use that h...

Re: 3 FOR 1! (Fujix DS-515A)

It looks like all three have just reappeared on eBay (assuming from the same seller), but are being offered separately this time.

Re: Nikon E-series serial numbers

Speaking of Nikon E2's on eBay, I might point out an E2 (not E2N) currently on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-Fujix-E2-Camera-and-Nikkor-50mm-lens-/331429109415?pt=Digital_Cameras&hash=item4d2ab6dea7 The seller claims "condition is like new,' and does not point out any particular flaws, but loo...

Minolta RD-3000 ?

Every so often I'll see a reference to the Minolta RD-175 (Minolta's first digital SLR, based on a Maxxum/Alpha body), but you hardly ever seem to hear about the RD-3000. The RD-3000 was based on an APS-format Minolta Vectis SLR body, and uses a split mirror/prism optical system similar to that of t...

Re: Nikon E-series serial numbers

I've added a few more to my collection the past several months (except for one which is already in the database): FUJIX DS-505 S/N 5200040 FUJIX DS-515 S/N 5400012 FUJIX DS-515 S/N 5400016 NIKON E2 S/N 5200079 NIKON E2 S/N 5200097 The odd thing is that over the years I somehow have managed to acquir...

Re: Kodak DCS 100 sales on Ebay.com now. Be careful to bid

I have to second vqscorpions's sentiment in thanks to folks here for keeping an eye out on things like this. I was watching that item as well, though I too was a bit skeptical about it, and noticed today that it had mysteriously disappeared from my watch list. Like nik0web, I searched completed item...

Re: 3 FOR 1!

[I was just catching up on this board; I thought I'd already responded to this post, but I guess not] Great! I saw that eBay listing too, but I'll admit I was a little gun-shy in part since it was a non-USA/Canada seller with little feedback and I didn't see any similar items sold by the seller. Gla...

Re: Nikon E-series serial numbers

Hello! Long time member, first time poster. I've been collecting these for some years now; they used to show up on eBay rather regularly and sometimes inexpensively, but now they don't aside from a few of what I call "sucker listings" (Buy It Now listings with excessive prices which get re-listed fo...
