Chris,

Still enjoying your posts and I just wanted to thank you for fleshing out the thread. Certainly, you have enjoyed using the F6 as well!

Both of them, since I now have two!

I'll point out that if you go to Shag Harbour:

You can go on to Paradise:


Welcome to Paradise by chrism229, on Flickr

Thirty years ago, Paradise was rather famous among the medical community of NS as being the home of a husband and wife team of sex therapists. I really think they would have been more at home in Shag Harbour... but Paradise will do nicely as the Amex lady used to say.

Thanks Huss,

Did a bit of machining on the aperture ring of the old Nikkor-S Auto. So even though it was made in 1962 or so, and originally was non-AI, I guess it's now sort of AI and works on the latest Nikon film body.

Best,
-Tim

In the next village to Église Sainte Marie (posted above) is Église St. Bernard. I'm guessing that this church, built ten years after the largest wooden church in north America but only a few kilometers from it, was constructed in a spirit of competitiveness. It sits on a hill and as one approaches from the south it looks more like a medieval European abbey than the kind of twentieth century church expected in a rural community of 850 people. Sadly, the source of funds for it is obvious: I passed through many communities where the houses and gardens were well-kept and looked prosperous. St. Bernard doesn't have that look, and one wonders whether the community poured its disposable wealth into this structure, and the results are still apparent.

Lovely work with your F6(s) Chris. I don't own one, but from what I've read the F6 would have to be the greatest of all the modern film cameras. The lenses rate a mention also.

I would not disagree, obviously.

The only thing better than an F6 is ... two F6's... !
Chris has shown the way..

Only two?

As you can see, I do some travelling in my old Miata, and space is at a premium when two of us pack for a four day trip. I generally take one body and two lenses, and use colour negative film that can be converted to B&W.

Here's a B&W version of the church above:

Just out of curiosity, what two lenses do you take.

Always a 28mm and either the 85/1.4D or the 105/2.8D. I use the same combo with all cameras that I travel with (Zuiko 28/2 and 85/2, or Pentax 28/2 and 85/1.4, or CV 28/2 and Summarit 90/2.5. Even the equivalent 45mm and 120mm with the Pentax 645n.) Most of the shots will be landscapes and will need the 28mm, and a short tele lets me do the occasional headshot or focus on further scenery. I wouldn't begin to suggest it would be right for everyone, but it makes a satisfactory compromise for me.

You shooting the old AIS 28 f2.8 or are you one of the lucky few with a 28mm f1.4 AF-D?

I think I've sold all my manual lenses with the FM3a's. I have both the 28/2.8 AF-D and the 28/1.4 AF-D. The latter was costly, even used, and it was hard to find the right lenshood, but worth the price and the effort. I've been quite happy with all the 'D' lenses, and the 28/2.8D is fine too. It's just that you can do things with the 1.4 that can't be done with the 2.8.

Get a F6.
You will not be disappointed. It is an outstanding camera! I love using mine!
But don't sell your F100! Prices are too low. You get more value in continuing using it!
And it is a perfect addition / back-up / companion to the F6.
For example use the F6 for shooting slides, and on parallel use the F100 for the BW shots on the same location.

Cheers, Jan

Anybody on this thread tell me what setting I have in place or not that might account for all of "chrism's" and "Huss's" pics not showing? When I click on the question mark in the graphic, I get sent to Flickr and a black page. TIA
