  1. We even have the same keeping-it-level problem.

    Nice capture Ed.

    Thanks for sharing.
  4. Heh, heh! A good one and good for a chuckle. You do know why I like the grid lines in the N80!
  5. I want that camera!

    Nice shot,
  6. Thanks for looking.

    I have the grid screen in my F100. Very nice!

    I was so unhappy that when I went to buy an FM3a they were no longer available new in the US. But I kept on looking and found this one in pretty much new condition and have been in love with it ever since. If it were the only camera I owned, I'd be happy I think.

  9. Nice pic, and a nice camera as well :wink:
    Hope the strap was around his neck!
  10. As already been said, this one could have been used for a Nikon Ad...

    Nikon is the only major digital company to offer a current top end film camera - and the F6 is a beaut! I do wish their FM10 was more like the FM3a though! I think mechanical wonders are a bygone thing, so treasure it, but work it hard as well!

    Oh, I tilt my camera too much too. I claim it's artsy!

    I started thinking the same thing after using my parents' OM-2N ... man an old "real" film camera is just wonderful to hold :866:

    Beezle I hope your kid knows how lucky he is to be using that camera :wink:
  13. Ed,

    A Nikon FM3a and a Nikkor 50mm f1.2, he is going to develop expensive taste in an addictive habit. You really need to install an E2 screen in that thing so he can keep it level.:wink: At least he can tell his therapist, I learned it from my dad.

    Speaking of focusing screens, one of the first things I do to every camera I get is to install an E Type screen. Does wonders for helping you keep things straight and level.

    Clever snap.
  14. I have the E in my F100. I even removed the reticle screen behind it. Works great. Well, it does the lines well, I still don't shoot straight. :rolleyes:

    Me neither.
  16. A wonderful shot. Like many of us, I too don't hold 'em straight.

    What does the boy think of film vs digital photography? :biggrin: :biggrin: (in 5 words or less) :Whistle:

    That film images are always crooked?
  18. Thank goodness for image rotation in PS!

    Yeah, I use rotation in digital images, but with film images, I am inclined not to crop, and even show the frame line around the image, since the corners are not pixel-perfect. That means that I cannot rotate the image without doing drastic manipulation (which I am not above doing, but loathe to admit.)
  20. Chris,

    I am with you on this one, I like to keep the frame line on my scans, so I try to make a great effort to keep things straight.
