No Classic Nikons Were Harmed in the Making of this Film

No-Nikons-Harmed
No Classic Nikons Were Harmed in the Making of this Film. Well, at least not too badly…

In all seriousness, this first Df Inspiration shoot used ― to the best of our knowledge ― more contemporary and classic Nikon cameras gathered together for a single production than ever before.

The veterans came out mostly to honor the newest edition to the family…and pose for a family photo.

Here’s the list, not including all the countless accessories employed during the shoot (for those keeping score at home, every camera, save the SP, was in mint or excellent condition). Brand new gear is *bolded:
