I follow the Nikon Historical Society on facbook and they periodically post nikon gear that is quite unusual. Today they posted a picture of a Nikon H field microscope...

So what is the most unusual or exotic piece of Nikon gear you've seen or used?
“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.” - Bresson

    Definitely the Nikon microscopes. I always got a thrill using them in lab in undergrad because I knew it cost way more than any camera or gear I owned. And I preferred the Nikon ones over the Olympus ones because the Nikon ones were far smoother in action.

    Here's a video of how to use one.

    Back when I had my F2, I had a attachment that helped you see the exposure in the viewfinder it was a little night light. Someone must know the item or have a photo of it. I miss my F2!
