Yes, I know I’ve been going on about using old film cameras and yes, I promised to show the 35mm camera I payed the extraordinary amount of thirty five English pounds. So cast your eyes above, the wait is over!
This is a Nikon 8008. In the UK it was labelled F801. It shipped with a 35-70mm D series zoom lens, attached. My version has a 50mm E series F1.8.
The image immediately below (which you’ve hopefully seen somewhere else on the Journal) was taken with an Olympus OM1 or 4 with a Zukio 50mm f1.8 in the late 1980s. The image below that was taken a couple of weeks ago (March 2021) with a Sony a6000 with a Sigma 30mm f1.4.
The weather conditions and the bridges are about the same but after approximately 32 years, a lot has changed!
