The staff at Looking Glass Photo was very welcoming to our sketch group. I asked them to show me the oldest camera they had in the shop and they brought me an original Nikon F to draw. This very heavy (film) camera was introduced in 1959. It was so durable it became known as the hockey puck. It was the camera used by photographers covering the Vietnam war and the first space launches in the 1960s. (Original price $186.) I also found a great lens and light meter in the resale cabinet to sketch.
