Nikon F3 HP Titanium and Nikkor 50mm f1.4 Ai-S with HS-9 hood

A workhorse of mine. Extremely reliable and tough - it is made of titanium metal! The film advance lever is smoother than my Leica rangefinders. It has an excellent metering system that is highly accurate so much so that I calibrate all meters of my other cameras to it. It has two mechanical backup speeds when the batteries run out and how I wish it is fully mechanical like my FM3a. The 50 f1.4 Ai-S lens is incredibly sharp and well-built. They are wonderful partners in photography.
