Nikon old, leather camera compartment case
Are you aware that the Original Instruction Manuals for the Rangefinder Nikon cameras are bloody expensive. But it is mainly a supply / demand kind of situation. I have only three copies of the Manual ready. For others, I have to wait for kind hearts of visitors. Don't send me any original copies of your possession - sell them if you have one ! may be it is good to subsidize a new purchase. However, before you decide to dispose them, why don't you consider do a scan* for me to enable others to have a library to refer to ?

By the way, just treat here as a digital junk yard. I can accept any things in any condition that relate to the Nikon rangefinder system because Instruction Manuals, brochures and leaflets are good source to gather accurate information. Be it for S-36, camera manual in multi-lingo, Reflex Housing, Variframe/Varifocal finders, lenses .. to as minute as eyepiece etc. Appropriate credit will be provided for such contributing effort. Thank You.

* Tips:- No scanner ? Just use a simple solution to solve a tedious process. Like ? Why DON'T just use your compact digital camera just snaps the copies for me ?
