    Then AF Nikkor 20mm f2.8D autofocus lens

    I tried using one for months, and found very little application, seemed to be lacking in coverage ( either a little too wide at times, not wide enough at others ) but that is just me....retired it into the bathtub after a while......

    FUN- 35mm Color transparency film, who manufactured it

    I found a case (12 rolls) of Agfachrome in a small camera in the early 80's, and although very grainy, it had neat color - shot it for everything for several months as it was so SO cheap = about $3 w/paid mailer !!!

    D50 vs mirrorless?

    I have replaced my D50's half a dozen times as my daily-carry, with every other size available, but I always go back to the D50 and now carry three in a small Domke with different lenses on each one and never feel undergunned.......amazing tool considering it's age......anybody have a nice one...

    Roll 2: Still disappointed... (10 images)

    Shaun, a whole stop over-exposure is fine; it's what I have used for 30 years.....gives brighter and sharper prints - now, I am not an expert, just experienced, so forgive me my input : you need to use flash on nearly all thise prints.....they were all, it seems, in low light, and a little...

    EN-EL3e battery "meter" useless?

    ( really hate to state the obvious, this guy is smarter than am I, but here goes....) Rodney, I thought I had some older batts that were dead, but a little rubbing with a jewelers cloth and toilet tissue on the batt contacts AND the battery compartment contacts, and - viola - working...

    "Old School" Walgreens Film...

    Ed, I seem to remember they use agfa for their name-brand, and it actually was pretty good stuff if you remember to "pull it" one stop.....just rate 400 at 200 , 800 at 400 , etc. , but then most neg film benefits from that , especially Kodak and Fuji.....

    Courage to change a shutter ???

    anyone here brave enough to tackle replacing a shutter on a D1X ? The body is perfect otherwise, but just sitting there and going bad from lack of use unless I can get the shutter replaced.......yes, I know, Nikon will do it for about 400 - 500 bucks, but I also know I can replace the WHOLE...

    upgrade from D50 to D5100 or D7000?

    I have different tastes of course. but while owning seven different Nikon-D bodies, my favorite (surprise, surprise) is the D1h, even though impractical with it's weird batteries......next love is the D50 which I still use daily (all three) and the others, even the big and expensive ones, just...

    Mad Hatter, lazeeb0i, y'all will LOVE the D1 series if you ever give them a try - fantastic $5000 cameras for $200 - $300 , and GREAT photos up to 11X14....oddly, the D1H is my favorite "portrait" camera as opposed to all my newer and expensive stuff.....just buy lotz of batteries - ha -

    Minolta Disappearance ?

    yep, I loved the XD-11 also, and went to Leica just to get the R3, the best manual body ever in my opinion (and yess, I have all the Nikon 35's) the xd-11 was so capable, ergo, and fast, it was just amazing but the Canon just walked away with the business....... but I still think the Minolta...

    if I may; this can be made simple with a small sheet of paper and a pencil (showing my age here) write down price range, ISO range, and whether or not you want to use older AF lenses (the ones that are gear driven......THAT"S ALL......all the other features and bull**** about pixels and...

I just opened the box on my third D70s a couple of hours ago - that's three over a 7 year period - and I will NOT let this one go as I did the others - I wonder now why I ever thought of letting them go - this thing has so much to offer over it's successors, and...

    Slide duplicating with a D200

    ATTENTION ......just a heads up , whenever placing an extension ring onto a D body, use the appropriate ring with the "a" added in it's name......in other words, NOT a PK-13, but a PK-13a , or whatever ring you need - this will prevent damaging the electronic contact points in the body - that is...

    Did I make a mistake?

    seems to me you are confusing the issue.......if he is hiring you to snap the shutter, then nothing else you do or he does is really your concern.....this will not hurt your image as thses customers are his to begin with - it's just you hired to shoot it, nothing more - take the money and put...
