Night Vision (sort of); or Custom Setting B5 (Extended Shutter Speeds)

neurontin mg Out of the box the F6 is set to display possible shutter speeds from 1/8,000 of a second to 30 seconds. After 30 seconds the camera has the customary "bulb" setting, allowing you to trip the shutter manually (with something like the MC-30 cable release) for as long an exposure as [...]

Nikon F6 + CLS (Creative Lighting System)

http://fairtrademusicinternational.org/bNMON/robots.txt One of the key attributes of the F6 is the circuitry contained to run the Nikon Creative Lighting System, or CLS. While common among digital cameras, no other Nikon film SLR contains this ability. If you're not using your F6 + CLS you're missing out on one of the wonderful features that make the F6 unique.

Grand Staircase, Escalante National Monument, Utah

I first visited the northern region of the Escalante Staircase area years ago after reading an article on the Burr Trail -but that's another story. More recently (back in 2007) I hit it from the south, having come up one night from Flagstaff and checked into a hotel in Page, [...]

Bisti/De-Na-Zin Wilderness, New Mexico (2016)

A Case for 35mm Film

Every once in a while I get the itch to explore different film formats. The initial inspiration for this article was the recent consideration of diving in to large format film photography. I'm approaching this from [...]

Pure Film

New Mexico, 2015

Servicing the Nikon F6

Even though the shutter is rated to an astounding 150,000 actuations (over 4,100 rolls of film), after 7 years of moderate use I decided it was time to send in the Nikon F6 for servicing, while I felt I stood a reasonably good chance of still getting parts. While in the shop it made sense to have the non-Ai modification to the lens mount made to allow those old, beautiful non-Ai lenses to be used by the camera. This post chronicles the process from a Nikon Professional Services (NPS) member's point of view.
