Tic tic tic tic tic tic goes the scanner on frame 14 of 36.
Today I'm scanning the first roll I shot with the Nikon F that I acquired last year. Acquiring it was really more nostalgia than anything else ... I paid $30 for the body, it's the black body F, now fitted with a plain prism finder, that I always wanted in 1970. I had a chrome one, bought the year before. Compared with the Leicaflex SLs that I acquired a couple of weeks back, it feels crude and clunky.
But the old pre-AI Nikkor-H 85mm f/1.8 and slightly newer Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S still shine. It's pleasing to see such nice negatives out of an old friend like this.
I hope I have time to shoot with the Leicaflex SL sometime soon.
