For sale is an used Nikon Chrome FE Camera with Nikon MF-12 data back (cable signal cable to body), a Nikon Nikkor AI-S 50mm 1:1.4 Fixed Prime Standard MF Ai Lens with original Nikon lens cap, a Nikon L37 52mm UV haze filter with Nikon screw-down CP-3 storage case, as well as two carrying straps. The camera body, data-back, lens, original Nikon lens cap, the Lens Filter, and both of the carrying straps are all genuine Nikon parts and made in Japan.This set has been owned by my family for approximately 35 years. Over the last three decades this camera has been sitting in storage inside an insulated building and has not been used once.
It was kept in inside a highly padded camera bag while not being used. It has been handled with care by an adult when not in storage. I do not see scratches, scrapes, or damage found anywhere on the body. There are few very minor scratches on the data-back as pictured, and that is it. There is no evidence this was ever dropped or mishandled.
Functionally this is what I have done to attempt to get it to work for this listing: I installed a set of new coin cell batteries into the bottom of the camera body and installed another set of coin batteries into the data-back. The data-back seems to work correctly and displays information on its LCD as shown. The small black lever on left back of the camera, above the data-back and to the left of the viewfinder, glows a red light when the lever is pushed down, meaning that there is power to the camera body. From what I can decipher the issue is that the viewfinder correctly shows the image and you are able to focus manually with the lens, but immediately after the shutter button is pressed down, the viewfinder goes black and requires a reset of the mechanism. The shutter does not have a clicking action.I hope to get it into the hands of someone experienced with film cameras that can either fix this themselves or is willing to invest in a professional to have it repaired. I cannot provide any troubleshooting for it. This will include a set of four new coin cell batteries installed into the body and data-back. However, what you receive is guaranteed to be as described and shown in the pictures. Be sure to check out my other listings for more camera and tech related listings.
