“When I have a camera in my hand, I know no fear.”

We’ve been known to feature a life-sized camera or two on the Brothership over the years, which seems only natural when you consider how much our hobby depends on them for sharing our creations. The latest outstanding entry into the category comes to us from Alex Jones (Orion Pax) who takes on 1983’s NIKON FE 2. The model has everything you’ve come to expect from the always reliable Mr. Jones; accuracy, inventive use of parts and glorious chrome. I think my favorite detail is the printed Jedi Starfighter canopy dish used as the lens, but your results may vary. For a complete selection of photos and information on this model, be sure and check out Orion Pax Designs

    An odd spot of inaccuracy from Mr Pax I believe. His camera has a lens labelled as VR or “vibration reduction” a technology that Nikon would not use until at least nine years after the FE2.

    ^ I can’t claim any specific knowledge on the topic so I’ll wait for Mr. Jones to offer a rejoinder, but you bring up an interesting point.

    ^^ Quite right, Big D, I shall change the description.

    Well, Mr. Jones has had much time-traveling experience, a la Back to the Future. It’s entirely possible that he pimped out the camera with some nice lenses from 2015. ;)
