p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · G Lenses love film


I enjoy film work with my MF Nikkors and various other systems, but I'd decided I really needed another F100, which has come in handy with my two G lenses, the 28/1.8 and 85/1.8. I have been using them rather frequently as I run through some Portra 160/400 film and having just scanned some of the film, I'm very pleased with the combination.

Feel free to post your shots using film and G lenses!

85/1.8:

Really nice! I should get out my F100 and go to town ... I have a whole bunch of black and white film in the fridge, just waiting to be shot!

Great idea to start this thread, Alan! I like the expression of your son on the first one - cool!
Here's a Fischer's Eider taken with the AF-S 200/2 (and maybe a TC-14) on my battered F5.
I'm not very good at scanning and the grain from expired HP5+ developed in Rodinal special got exaggerated.

The first one it looks like your portra has some banding issues...better have it sent in and checked for hot pixels as well....

Funny i picked up an N80 a while back (for $24 btw), and put 35 1.8 DX lens on it....and it actually works really really well....little weird distortion here and there, but i really do like the look of film....only sucky part, the Costco stores around here JUST stopped doing film :-( and they did a really good job, now i'm stuck with Walgreens, and they're totally hit or miss....sucks...

A lovely shot with beautiful tones Georg, I've run into difficulty scanning my own home developed B&W too.

Because of the dust spots in the film Nathan, I finally learned to use the infrared scratch and dust removal on my Plustek scanner. It's all corrected now. If I remove the banding, I'm afraid mosquito will get into my house though...

@Lxdesign, get out and shoot it! I want to see what you get!

Deal... I'll shoot a couple of rolls next week, and scan and post some pics. I now have the 1.8 trifecta.. So I'll put those to the film test

Alan, how do you handle a G lens on film camera, it does not have Aperture ring right?

Thanks.

The F100, F5, F6 are film cameras that are able to handle G lenses just like DSLRs do.
There may be other film cameras but I'm not sure, perhaps someone can clarify for me.

I see. So the A and S can be changed from the camera body?

yes, just like on a digital body if you have an autofocus lense.

The N80 and pronea supports G lenses as well, but you can't use VR with a pronea body. I'm not sure about the n65 and n90s, but they probably work, and this can be looked up online.

All those cameras such behave as a digital body- the body sets the aperture in program mode, or you can override it. You don't touch the aperture ring at all, unless it's a manual focus lense which only work on the F5 and F6. The rest require AF lenses with the aperture locked at the smallest value.

Nikon is pretty damn good about their compatility for anything but a speedlight. In fact, they did a great job with the F mount and adding stuff like AF, electronics and all that jazz.

Canon keeps changing their mounts and has really poor compatibility with their own bodies and lenses.

buuuump..

Georg, I have to say that that Fischer's Eider has a ton of character. What a gret looking bird, and the tonality in not just him (her?) but also the water and reflection is fantastic.

Looks like others beat me to your question, but several of the newer cameras are already set up to handle chipped AI-P, AF, AF-D, and G lenses just the same as the newer digital bodies.
