Hey Vince, is that a keyboard from one of those fangled new computers beside your camera?

I'm guessing that because of the fancy late-model Nikon you shoot!

I wonder how many of us on RFF still have residual muscle memory for hitting the carriage return. Maybe someone could write a program for a bell to go off when we get near the end of a line.

Jenni's SP is lovely and Kiu's 1.1 50 is awesome. My dad recently found and gave to me his old Nikon manual (book) that covers the S, S2 and SP. A very interesting read covering all the cameras (obviously), all the lenses, lens design theory, film, developing, etc... Anyhow, the SP and the 50/1.1 were the stand-out pieces of equipment as I paged through it earlier this week. Nice to see them both here.

I just got my S3 a couple of weeks ago, and this self-portrait is from the first roll of slides I shot.
The lens is a Jupiter 8 50mm f2.
The image was scanned and colour-corrected in Photoshop CS2.
Ignore the ugly guy in the background.

Maybe it should belong in the "Show off your Contax" thread. One of the members asked me to make a Nikon/Contax comparison for his website.

Here is my Nikon S2 + black Nikon Ftn and Nikon/Contax/Bessa/Olympus team. Strange reflection on lenses came from my moving flashlight and 2 sec. shutter speed.

Man, that SP 2005 is some serious eye candy! Wish Nikon would release for sale the 35mm that accompanies that camera. As long as I'm wishing, I also wish they would price the lens so one doesn't have to sell a major organ in order to afford it.

Regards,

Charlie
