Had an old F1 years ago STUPIDLY let it go
I still have my black Pentax Super A which was purchased in 1988, Still in bloody good condition and I gaze at it with love in my eyes for a bygone age. Perhaps it's why I sold all my Canon gear, including a nice batch of L glass for a Fuji XT4 kit.
The Fujifilm kit is a great release from the heavyweight stuff most of us have ended up accumulating. They have successfully produced easily portable equipment of quality, with the best of retro feel for those who appreciate such attributes.
I put a roll of film in my Nikkormat ELW two weekends ago, never actually took a pic before the weather turned though. That's a bit of a tank to lug round, it's markedly heavier than my Zenit. Must put a roll through the F3 sometime, though as I use all its lenses on the D200 it'll feel a bit odd.
The odd thing that you'll notice, Adrian, is how much looser your subject look ...... Plus, I wanna know how many times you chimp
with the F3
Well, it's got a little film label holder in the back, I might put a little photo in it...
.... great idea, Adrian
One acquaintance put a note in here reading "Have you wound on pillock?"
That's just awful. Should be "Have you wound on? Pillock."
You'll not be chimping the back of your F3 as much as I chimp the back of my Minolta Dynax 7 !
No matter what button I press , sometimes it can be months before i get to see the images .
Oooh, interesting - matrix metering, I assume?
I'll have a P please Bob.
He's not. The Dynax 7 is a film camera, as was the Nikon F3. You've just missed the joke, which has led to you posting unnecessarily rudely.
OOPS SORRY If all else fails read the instructions
My great regret is that the fabled digital film project never came to anything. Nor am I sure that "I'm Back" is anything more than smoke and mirrors. It would be fun to make digital images using my old cameras!
Revisiting the Kodak DCS May as well go the whole hog and stick a NPC polaroid back on your F3 for instant results.
Matrix metering for Nikon , Multi-segment metering for others , but Minolta called this a " Brightness-Distribution Display " .
Very fancy . How many people have ever used this function I don't know .
Another display setting available when used with "D" type lenses ( those with a distance encoding chip in them with ADI flash metering ) showed the range of acceptable focus at any given aperture and focus distance when the DOF preview button was pressed .
Another function I'm not sure was used much .
Called the "Digital DOF Display" .
You do see this feature on some digital cameras .
Thanks, Neil, consider me educated! I've never bothered with the fancy metering on my D200, but as I'm using AI-S lenses anyway, it would probably sulk. I did discover that it doesn't support shutter priority with them, after a day shooting airyplanes!
As for film cameras I have only 2 cameras with really accurate Light meter: Canon T70 and Canon Eos300.
