Why not add to the thread by taking some home camera porn photos? I will get out the old Minolta and post later. :)

sounds like a good idea to me. I've just been to the tip this morning and thrown away the packaging, and manuals from some of my old cameras. :(

they would have been good for this thread.

From wikipedia, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_FE2) "The FE2 is a member of the classic Nikon compact F-series 35 mm SLRs and was built upon a compact but rugged copper aluminum alloy chassis similar (but not identical) to the ones used by the earlier Nikon FM (introduced in 1977), FE (1978), and FM2 (1982) cameras. The FM2/FE2 twins were improved successors to the successful Nikon FM/FE cameras with enhanced features, but minor external controls and cosmetic differences. The Nikon FA of 1983 also used this basic body design and the limited production Nikon FM3A of 2001 continued to use it until 2006.
One of the most memorable image from the Tiananmen Square protests of China in 1989, "Tank Man", by Jeff Widener, was shot with a Nikon FE2"
