    umm.... I don't think Nikon ever made a roll film camera.

    I have a Nikkor lens for my 4x5 (large format), but again... I don't remember Nikon making any film cameras other than 35mm.

    I'd look for the Nikon Phantom-Flex, the original model, made April 1, 1950, from 1:00 PM to 2:45 PM in the world's shortest camera production run ever.
    The Phantom-Flex used the no-longer available 620 rollfilm size, came with a 75mm f/2.8 Nikkor-Apparition lens standard, and the system had the option of a 50mm wide-angle Nikkor-Rumored f/3.5 wide-angle, plus a 110mm f/3.2 Nikkor-Bogus telephoto, as well as the matching 2x Nikkor-Comedica telephoto converter. There was also a flash unit, the Nikon Parody Flash, and there was an accessory back system called the Nikon Put-on.

    Obviously, these are very,very,very hard to find. You could spend years on eBay and not find one of these medium format Nikon rollfilm cameras.:sexywink:

    ^ I've always wanted one of those but, sadly, I'll just have to be content
    with my 110-format view cameras.

    :)

    I'm pretty sure that an F5 will fit on that thing- as would an EM.

    It takes a lot of searching Googleing "Nikon medium format" to get that far. ;)

    Oh, I got that, Mike.

    But that would then be digital photography, and not film photography. There is no point of mounting a film camera on this thing when you can slide in a sheet holder without it.

    Still, the "taking" camera will be whatever 4x5 camera you mount this onto. The Nikon is simply acting as several small pieces of film that need to be stitched into one image.

    ^ The F5 and EM are film cameras.

    But, why anyone would want to hook them up to that
    contraption ... I dunno. Maybe to impress chicks?

    Ooops. Looks like I was editing my post while you were entering yours.

    Yeah... this thing goes on the back of a film camera in place of the 4x5 film holder back. It has no practical use with a second film camera mounted onto it.

    We are confused by your reference to "medium format". That's Hasselblad etc.

    My humor must be off today, any searching at all would have nixed the question. :lol:
