Merry Christmas and happy New Year! I suppose it's time I started blogging again. For Christmas I did a little trading, buying and selling of cameras. A new Hasselblad 500cm, Nikon 301 and this... The infamous Nikon F100 made it's way to my mailbox. I bought this particular F100 from a seller in Japan. The Japanese are renowned for being great sellers and often over deliver with great service and mint condition products. This F100 was no exception.
The F100 arrived on Christmas Eve - just in time to test run some Tri X 400 through it on Christmas Day!
I rated the film at 1600 as this camera can shoot up to 8000th of a second, so at 1600 iso I would be covered indoors and out in the Queensland summer sun.... or so I thought. It rained all day Christmas day here on the Gold Coast, but I had a ball punching through 36 frames throughout the day.
It's too early to give this camera a full review as I've only finished the one roll, but already I feel it's going to be a regular on my hip at weddings and engagement sessions. A beautiful camera to use along with the amazing glass Nikon offer.
Stay tuned for more from the F100, not to mention all the new orphan cameras I re-homed over Christmas.
