One more silly one...
I realize the Question I am about to ask should be in the analog thread
but here goes anyway to All you Nikon Heads
I have been recently bit by the SLR Bug...the Evil SLR ...
and have Fancied a Nikon FM3a & nikkor 50 1.2 ais
the shutter goes up tp 4000 / Is that correct ?
Any THoughts about this Nikon ??
THANX IN ADVANCE... Best -H
Seriously though, I am not sure. There are a few around here in Iceland...I don't think they view it as a problem...perhaps it is so that it was more visible in the snow? Most of the churches here are white with red roofs...
thank you all for the compliments...
here is another black church, though this was with the DMR...
Helen re: the FM3A... Yes, if I remember correctly the shutter max is 4000. Many find it to be a very lovable camera. Built strong, good metering and TTL flash capabilities, unobtrusive, reliable.
See the above link for the details. Looks like it does go to 4000.
Thank You Tim & Doug...
re: nikon Fm3a
playing around at night in chicago....with the D700!!
Thank you Alex! It may be that the church is well-placed. Up on a small hill, looking out over the landscape. The weather is typically Icelandic too -- cloudy, transitional...ready to be either sunny or pouring rain within a few moments.
And nice job Viablex! The D700/D3 really scream out for night work...they are really at home in the dark as you have demonstrated.
Some pics from yesterday walk (D3x and 24-70):
that last one is great!!!
stairs at the palace theater, it says Jackson five tonight out front!!!

Hello AlexLF and viablex1,
As usual, your images are fantastic! Though Super Star Michael Jackson is gone, a sign that says "Jackson Five tonight" still remains at the Palace Theater... All the best, Leica 77
Viable, how come it always looks like that when you've been there ...
Impressive rendering, btw.
Matt and Alex, both very nice work again! Really like the waterfront image at night.
But I agree with Bondo how come all these places look torn up after you've been there... hmm looks like a pattern is developing here.
nice shooting what company is that?
Thanks. It's the Ballet Etudes of South Florida. I am the official photog.
Hard to believe such grandiose (at one time) buildings are thrown to the bone yards like the second image here. What ever it was must have been nice in its heyday.
Whats with the clothes image, was that in one of your destructed buildings?
Nice work Carlos!
the first one is the fisher body plant, then Michigan central terminal, the clothes are left over in the packard for some reason...
Very smooth shot of South Pointe, Carlos. And man Viablex, you're like a magnet for that decrepit look. Amazing!
This is from some other direction. Playing with the lensbaby.
Here I'm away for a few days, and WOW... some photos!
Stuart, Viablex, Alex and Carlos, so many great shots
Here's my humble contribution, from Saigon this time, trying to get manual focus right with large apertures and moving subjects. Not easy
Just back a couple of hours ago, so I'm still copying photos to my computer, but here's one that has made it to the hard-disk.
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 AIS @ f/1.8
And here's one from Chinatown this morning with one of the small apertures
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 AIS @ f/2.8
One more, then sleep
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 AIS @ f/2.8
Last one, I promise...
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 AIS @ f/4
Nice work on all of them Jorgen, well done! They all look good to me.
Fun Pictures with Nikon. Thanks for looking. Leica 77
Jorgen, those shots are wonderful! I heartily congratulate you. But I can't keep from wondering what those colors would look like, had you not used the S5)
I just cannot get the same quality models as Jorgen - but I will keep trying. Cambodia, floating village near Angkor Wat.
D2Xs, 70 - 200 mm lens, various.

Another recital by yours truly. This was a dance camp at my kids' school. The girls in the dance camp produced, choreographed, designed costumes and lighting themselves. I was impressed. Here are a few samples:
Fun Pictures with Nikon. UNESCO's World Heritage Site -- Rice Terraces of Banaue. Thanks for looking. Leica 77
Fun Pictures with Nikon. Historic Church in southern Cebu. Thank you for looking. Leica 77
John, love the third shot.
Carlos, this is getting better and better. The two b&w shots are beautiful.
Alex, there's really nothing that compares to the S5. Coming back home with a bunch of photos from that camera is such a pleasure; all the colours are there, and whatever misses I did with the exposure can easily be corrected, thanks to the enormous DR.
Here's one that really challenges the DR: Midday tropical sun, faces in the shadow and pastel coloured dresses in shiny material in direct sunlight. Still, details are preserved everywhere.

... and one from a colder climate
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 @ f/2.0
I seem to be veering into the weird lately. I found this rock today and couldn't help but notice how much like raw meat it looked. Not a "pretty" picture, but sort of interesting. The coloration is strictly natural, no paint or wild manipulation in PS.
It wouldn't be interesting if it was manipulated, in this case. At first glance I thought it was a raw pork shoulder, until I read your text and saw that it was a rock.
Jorgen, thank you for the kind comments. The girls put their all into the show and I hope my photos reflected that. I may pick out a couple more and post them.
Hmmm... I don't think I would eat that. How did it taste?
Here's some real meat, but the corn seems to taste better anyway
S5 with 105mm f/1.8 @ f/2.8
On a technical note: I do like the way this lens handles the OOF areas
Considering that she has a bag of "sweetbread" (braaaaiiinnnsssss!) I would go for the corn too.
