Yeap. always interesting shooting in PDX. always a surprise. Will be trying my new d4 tomorrow if its dry


PDX is a street shooter's dream. So much more to see than the boring, lifeless hamlet that I live in.

shameless film thread hijack plug time.

If anybody in the Chicago area wants to process and print some black and white film themselves, or to learn how, this is the place to visit

www.chicagocommunitydarkroom.org

The free open house is nearly every Wednesday from 7-10pm. All sorts of fun things happen there such as bucket processing of motion picture film and direct positive 16x20 prints from pinhole cameras and lots and lots of 35mm and medium format work.

Alan - Great idea for a thread!!

I've gotten my 28/1.8 (only G lens I own) out on my F5 for a family wedding recently. Here are a couple shots. Tri-X 400, home processed (xtol 1:1) and scanned (V700).

Tony, as usual great stuff out of your hands! Thanks for sharing the film/developer-infos
Made me think about adding the 28G to my arsenal...

Dylan, love your street-shots! How does the F100 feels like (ergonomics, built quality, finder) compared to a D700?

Jorge, very nice set! The 85/1.4G is still a dream for me. Glad to see it works so well with film too ;-)

Thanks Georg.

To me, the F100 feels better in my hand. The grip is deeper, the body thinner from front to back, it is a little shorter with grip vs D700 w/ grip. The D700 with grip feels a bit too large, the F100 is perfect. I only use it gripped, in fact I have lost the original battery door, so I have no other option. In practice this does not matter to me.

The only complaint I have with the F100 is that front and rear control wheels are plasticky and stiff, and don't feel nearly as nice. They feel more like the one on my old D50 than those of the D700. Because of this, I give the D700 the edge in terms of build. The viewfinders are similar, but after switching out the screen on my D700, I am hesitant to shoot MF lenses on my F100. I think I will swap its screen as well, I have a spare one from a F3 kicking around.

Thanks Georg, coming from you that means alot! The 28G is a huge no brainer to me, so much so that I've been toying with selling off my 105/2 DC and getting the 85G even... crazy? I love the silent and accurate focusing and it's tack sharp.

Thanks Dylan! A fellow shooter was using a F100 for daily work back in the late 90's/early 2000's. I've handled it a few times back then and loved it, but had already a F5. Somehow this camera looks really good, just like a D700 ;-)

Tony, another question regarding the 28G - does it focus pretty fast on a decent camera? The 85/1.8G is not exactly a speed-king...

Georg, I would echo Dylan's comments about the handling of an F100 vs. D700. I always tell myself that I will buy an F5, but I really don't need the extra heft and high speed shooting or long exposure options that are afforded by the F5, so my F100 stays with me.

As for the speed of the 28/1.8G, it is very fast. It blows my 85/1.8 out of the water on either the F100 or the D700. I haven't needed any manual adjustment for it on my D700 either.

Alan, thanks! I have way too much cameras already, but when I see a decent priced F100... we'll see
The 28G is ordered - thanks for sharing your impressions about the focusing speed. When I need AF, I need a fast and reliable AF, so that's an important point for me.
In the meantime - here's more waterfowl shot with the fat 200/2 VR. The ducks are nothing special, but I like the look of the waves here.

F5, expired HP5plus in Rodinal special, AF-S 200/2 VR, maybe with TC14E, sorry for the crappy scan

Georg, I agree, love the ripples in the water.

I've got a couple more with the 24-70...I forget the film, but I think it was expired kodak gold.

Since its mostly on topic... when you are using your G lenses, which flashes are y'all using?

I only have SB700's which dont support TTL on the F100.

I don't use a flash really for my personal photography. And that's all I really post here, personal stuff.

Chris,
When I use flashes for film work, it is manual YN560-II's which I've already checked with my lightmeter for strictly still shots. If I needed TTL, I'd pick up an SB-28 again.

SB80DX if I'm using an AF Nikon body.

I tend to use this flash with any non TTL camera. Auto Aperture mode is great.

If I need more light the sunpak or quantum get used.
