Recently we traveled to Southwest Harbor in Maine, which is just outside Acadia National Park. For this trip I brought my Nikon F3, and my new Nikon S3. As far as 35mm film I’m bringing […]
Shooting With a Classic Rangefinder: The Nikon S3
I’ve always been interested in rangefinder cameras – thus my post about the Kodak 1A Autographic Special from a few weeks ago. That Kodak was one of the first cameras to utilize a rangefinder. I […]
