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
