Re: Trying film again after years of shooting digital

Thanks for the suggestion of giving Portra 160 a try! I may just do that, but I first want to shoot some b&w film. I'll probably go with Tri-X (it's what I used back in the day when I developed my own negatives and made my own prints), and this time I'll probably use my Nikkormat FT2. Changing ISO and shutter speeds on that beast is a pain, but oh does that build quality feel good! I only have two lenses for the Nikkormat: a 50mm and an 85mm (both 1.8); interestingly enough, my three Minolta lenses (28, 50, and 135mm) seem to be optically better. I've come to the conclusion that back in the 70s, Minolta did a better job than Nikon coating their lenses.

Cheers,

Daniel
