Recently acquired a Nikon R8 at an estate sale , seems to be clean and in good shape , but NO BATTERY HOLDER so I can't power it on to see if it works !!! :o Does anyone have a spare battery holder for sale ? This is it: I'm thinking I may need to watch eBay for a non-functional Nikon R8 or R10 being sold cheap -- as-is "For Parts" to salvage the battery holder as long as it's clean and not corroded. .
Hi everyone, I’m shooting a test roll at the moment (my first) on a Nikon R10 but I can’t work out whether inserting the filter key turns the internal filter on or off? My understanding from the manual is that inserting the key turns the filter off - but I’m not sure if I’m interpreting it correctly. It’s confusing as it references old film stock (Kodachrome Type A) which I think was tungsten balanced film, and then talks about artificial light which I’m guessing from the time would mean Tungsten lighting. I thought someone on here would probably know from their own experience shooting with the camera. I've read too that the R10 can work it out itself based off the film cartridge, but I've been inserting the key for different shots so am wondering too if this will have any effect to my shots so far? Hopefully me inserting the key has had no effect. Thanks Dave
Hi all So I just got my Nikon R10 this week and it's in great condition and seems to run smoothly so far (although I haven't tested it with film yet). My only issue is though that the whole thing kinda smells.. like a farm, or like horses or something. But I was wondering if maybe this is normal and if it is just the aged leather as it's a vintage camera of course. Anyone else have this with their R10 or R8? Cheers Dave
