Last summer I sent my Nikon F3 to International Camera Technicians for repair and CLA. The winder was good and stuck. Jim Holman did speedy, good work, and shortly the F3 was back in my hands. In the box was a USB drive with the ICT logo on it. I thought it was odd to throw a promotional item like that into the box, but I kept it because you never know when you’ll need a USB drive.
Not long ago John Smith wrote about sending his Nikon FM to ICT for an overhaul. He mentioned that John included a USB drive with photos of the camera torn down, and then showed several of the images.
“Is that why Jim included that thumb drive?” I wondered. So I fished it out of the drawer and plugged it into my computer. Bam, there they were, nine photos of my winder under repair!
I thought you’d enjoy seeing them. Here’s a slideshow.
