  • Replied in Nikon FM10
    Bought it as a 35-70 kit on a whim in 2003, just as I was considering getting into a digital SLR. I sold it a short time later. I was already hooked on digital.
  • Hopefully, not while driving.  ;-)
  • I know most of those cameras, having been a Nikon dealer in the seventies and following the Nikon brand ever since.  The beauty, functionality and durability of Nikon film cameras still impresses!
  • I live on the western shore of Lake Michigan, and spend a lot of time photographing in the coastal state parks and dunes, where it's often windy. I don't use a plastic bag, because I have the ...
  • I read other's techniques, and didn't post mine, but here it is. 1. Turn on camera and remove battery, leaving lens extended. 2. Insert a narrow vacuum extension all the way into the empty battery ...
  • Replied in Thanks, André
    DXO's Prime noise reduction gets the credit for the low noise with ISO 3600.
  • Created discussion thread Now that I'm really good at vacuuming,
    My CPA is bringing dirt-free results, and life is good. A few more image posts: Mila's "screen time" at Granny & Papa's; NASA Saturn 5, and Shuttle Atlantis (raw conversions in Photos - Tonality ...
  • -Seems you now miss the S95 a lot, so why not replace it with the successor model that will be familiar, yet upgraded? You might not need the larger sensors of the current G_X series for your image ...
  • Yes, check out the OP's  video link.  Worth it.
  • I just finished a thirty-day experiment, using only my APS-C Coolpix A with an 18.5 fixed lens. I wanted to see how shooting this focal length in a variety of situations would work, over against ...
  • I've never kept a camera for as long as my 1963 Kodak Retinette 1A, rescued as new stock from the back of a closing camera store in 2003, for $9.95.  It's simply beautiful, and the Reomar lens is ...
  • Same for me, Infared. In 1957, for Christmas as a nine-year-old. I immediately loaded a roll of VP127, went out and shot a photo of a police officer standing next to his cruiser, talking with...

  • I joined the Photo Pictorialists of Milwaukee, a few years ago. It's been around for over 100 years. The photo outings are great. We often eat and have a beer, afterwards. We project our images ...
  • Thanks!  The distance to the closest foot prints was approx. 3 ft., and the back ridge of grass was about 100 ft.  I set the focus point at just beyond the 3 ft. mark on the MF scale.  I really ...
  • It needs to be seen at original size to be appreciated!  I'm glad to see that even while owning a D800 and some nice glass, you still see this Coolpix A workflow as worthwhile. The CPA has been my ...
  • Replied in Hey, VaughanB
    I just like your photo!  Really!
  • Replied in P7800?
    If you're as happy with your former P7700 as it seems, the P7800 is even a bit better!  I'd snatch one up, as it's definitely the end of a compact era for Nikon. No more compact 28-200mm ...
