Nikon FG20 

I picked up this old camera yesterday from my good friend Raymond Cotter. A 1984 Nikon FG20. It was in a pile of cameras in the charity shop. I wrote it off as worthless and he let me have it for display purposes in the studio along with other old camera examples. Last evening I got it out, fixed a Sigma manual focus lens, cleaned it up, and tested its meter. It’s perfect! There’s a wee problem with the film winder, but otherwise it’s in good enough condition. 

Today I’ll load it with Ilford 400ISO Black & White and take it in a test drive. 

If it works – my conscience will be severely tested and I’ll be down to make a donation asap!

I’ll update this post with the results!
