Hello everybody. It's time for me to join this excellent forum after some months of lurking around. My acquaintance to analog photography is short, as I started shooting 35 mm in May this year with a Konica Autoreflex T3N/50 mm f/1.7 lens I found at a local goodwill store for about $5. I am pretty fascinated by analog technology and have for some years been working with restoring Revox and Sony open reel tape decks, studio mixing desks and vintage hi-fi receivers - and enjoying the sound of analog equipment.

The next camera was a Konica FS-1 my Uncle had in storage, was fitted with the 40 mm f/1.8 lens and he had a 135 mm f/5.6 Hexar lens too. Great lenses, a decent camera - but the fully manual T3N is still my favourite of the two.

Did a photoshoot at night with a friend whom I have been luring into analog - he bought a Nikon F4 to use with his existing array of AF Nikkor lenses. Very appealing to the analog lover with all the dials and buttons for every function and a joy to use; I want one!

I am collecting a Nikon F4 with a 35-70 mm f/2.8 and the original 50 mm f/1.8 kit lens, MB-21 battery pack and SB-24 flash tomorrow - list price is $400, let's see if I can haggle with the seller.

Looking forward to become a part of the community.

Cheers,
Søren aka. Copyhat

Welcome to apug. The F4 is a good choice, especially if you want to use manual lenses.

I'll bet that's actually a cold hello. I wouldn't think anybody in Denmark is suffering from heat exhaustion right about now.:smile:

Thank you everybody!

It is rather cold here, just below the freezing point.

Velkommen til.
Herligt at se endnu en F4 "skytte" er også arbejdshesten her sammen med et par andre Nikon's inkl. et DSLR ( de passer jo objektiver :smile:)

Mange tak,
Kan godt se hvorfor folk elsker F4... Har lige været ude i mørket et par timer og skyde en rulle HP5, den er godt nok tung at have rundt om nakken (2.2 kg...), men hvilken følelse at bruge et analogt værktøj med alle de muligheder; og ingen komplicerede menuer at navigere rundt i.

Mørkekammer? Pfff, er selv en billig studerende som bor i 28 kvm lejlighed - nøjes med mit "store" badeværelse som indtil videre er stort nok til at rode med Paterson tank og Rodinal.

Puha ja den ser også stor ud men på den anden side, i forhold til F3 ser selv min F100 stor ud men det er altså også et fedt apparat og ikke helt så tungt som F4. Hvis du virkelig vil mærke tungt skal du kigge efter Pentax 67 eller mamiya RB/RZ 67 :smile:

hørt hørt. Rodinal er gud :smile: Badeværelset har også fungeret for mig i mange år og det er intet problem med formater op til 6X6 (Opemus 5) men fra 6X7 (Durst M70) og op (Omega D3) bliver forstørrelses apparaterne for klodsede og tunge at flytte rundt på. Så er det rart med et lille rum i skuret, mit er dog noget mindre end de 18m[SUP]2[/SUP]
Mvh

Ja de kære studie dage, mit lille kollige køkken var mit mørkekammer og budgettet kunne lige strækkes til en enkelt rulle film på 30m. hver måned.

F4 er en tung sag her kan jeg komme op på nær 3 kg med den store zoom. Faktisk føæes mit F80 som i en del år var mit trofaste kamera meget let i forhold ( ren plast også).
Målet med et mørkekammer af den størrelse er ud over 35mm formatet at komme op og lege med et RZ67 med tiden, og især forsærene kræver lidt mere plads og luft omkring sig til det.

Hej Søren
Velkommen til.
Mvh Søren

Søren!... velkommen til hvad? ("velkommen til" er ikke rigtig dansk!! Det er digidansk.. :wink: )

Welcome to APUG Søren!

If speaking in Danish, you should go to the Scandinavian sub forum... ( (there was a url link here which no longer exists))

We have all been poor students...
Come visit (Vrå in Vendsyssel) - I'll buy you a cup of coffee - help if I can - and I have a LOT of equipment with no real owners.... :wink:

3kg is nothing! I have a lens that weighs 8kg's without the camera....

Seems like there are more Danes than I ever hoped for - interesting!

The MB-20 battery grip followed too, I think that will be my preferred one for the most time as far as bulkyness goes. Had it with me (with MB-21) at a musical where my Cousin made some on-stage drawing where I got to use the 35-70mm with Agfa Vista 400 (really Fuji Superia 400?), I was drawing a lot of attention at the back rows as I clicked away.

I have just bought cheaply a 50mm 1:1.8 E-series lens; should I invest in an AF 50mm 1:1.4 D? Doing some night photography and playing with slower film, so it seems worthwhile to have a whole stop more light available. It'll also enable me to do indoor photography with no flash...

What budget-minded Nikon lens is worth owning? I think primes are my thing as they are sharper, lighter and with less distortion... Anything in the 28-55mm range would be my immediate preference I think.

BTW - are there any APUG members residing near Aarhus?

Welcome to APUG, Soren! I haven't used the 50mm D but I have the AiS version -and it has very nice bokeh. Why not get the 85 /105 or 135?
