Buying an older Camera

 

 

We all get swept away with the constant feeling that we need the latest and greatest equipment, but do we? How often do we ask ourselves, what are we going to shoot? What equipment do I need? What will I be doing with the images?

Choosing a Camera

 

In this video, I discuss choosing a camera, not based on marketing, or what looks good, but as a tool. What do you want to do with this tool? Do you want to throw endless money upgrading constantly because you can, or worse, just because you are made to feel that you should? Continue reading

35mm Photography and the Nikon F3

The iconic Nikon F3, the first 'Designer' Camera by Nikon. This was and remains a brilliant film photography tool. I have one and absolutely love it. If you have any interest in film photography, these are great value now and they can use any Nikon F mount lenses, excluding the latest G versions.
