I sold off my digital full frame camera and picked up one of the best 35mm bodies ever made - the Nikon F5. I will be honest, I wasn't expecting great results - but was "hoping" i got lucky. After all, digital has really spoiled us all. With Live View, LCD screens for instant gratification and results, what is not to like about digital.

So why the change; is what I get asked quite a bit. To be honest, it is to get better. With no LCD to check exposures - and add that I have to wait sometimes 3 weeks for the results (have to finish of the roll first), it is a longer process; at least until I get out shooting more.
I was never one to shoot 30 shots of the same scene to blend, so "slowing down", as film makes you do; I am used to that pace.

These were shot with the F5, which in the second shot it was raining (as it does quite a bit up here) and the spray from the falls was just as bad. The F5 has passed the weather sealing test, which is why I bought her. I am using the same lens as I did with my Canon 1Ds.

F5, Tokina 17mm 3.5 RMC, f/16 on both. first shot is Fuji Reala 100 and 2nd shot is Fuji Pro 160S

Truly beautiful. And if you don't process the film yourself, when the negs/prints come back like this, I for one feel a certain (oddly missing with digital) satisfaction.

Wow, you must have a really nice camera to get shots like that...


Just kidding.

Nice work- makes me want to drag out some old bodies and do some "real" shooting.

That came out wrong. You know what I mean...

What kind of PP did you give them, if any? The colors are amazing.


Any time you start thinking that you're a big shot, try giving commands to someone else's dog.
Direct and blunt C&C wanted, please.

Thanks everyone! For the first shot, I used Fuji Reala 100 and the second shot I used Fuji NPS Pro 160. Both are excellent films. It is too bad that Reala is only made domestically, meaning it has to be imported from Japan.

Once I get the scans back, I run the files through Nik Define 2.0 - which is amazing! Then i treat it as a normal file. One thing I will say is that the film has so much more dynamic range than my 1Ds (someone stated even the D800 - but who knows), so if I bracket, I can do like 2 second exposures apart. I hope to have more stuff to scan soon
