The return of the Nikon S3

On today’s offer we have a superb condition S3. It is in such fine condition that you’d wonder if it was ever even touched before, with the shutter protection also still in place. All of the surfaces and finishes are absolutely perfect. This is an entirely mechanical camera hand assembled in Japan and it looks like it’s straight off the production line all the way back in 2000.

The more you delve into the rich history of Nikon and discover all the incredible stories of manufacturing advancements, triumphs over competition, and how they were used countless times to capture history in the making, the more you gain a greater appreciation of not only the company, but what they have done to bring us to the point we are at today – A pocket sized, super complex image capturing device conveniently on our smartphones. Nikon was one of the main companies that paved the way to modern camera technology, but in the late 90’s, when film camera development almost entirely ceased, they had the crazy idea to remake a camera from their history books, the S3. If you haven’t already read the story of Nikon painstakingly remaking this S3 for the year 2000, I highly recommend checking it out here:
