Collecting Cameras

I’m still freshening my film-camera reviews (and will be for some time; I’ve written 121 of them). I now come to two Nikon 35mm SLRs that couldn’t be more different from each other.

The Nikon FA was a remarkable technological achievement for Nikon, and a darn fine camera to use. See my updated review here.

The Nikon N60 is an entry-level SLR, but with good Nikon glass attached it can take wonderful photographs all day. See the review here.

  1. A couple of great reviews Jim, and nice ot see them in the same post – you couldn’t get more poles apart than those. I’ve never actually used a Nikon SLR but it’s on my to do list – hopefully. The thing is I’m willing to bet if I had those two the N60 would get more use. When you’re out and about with the kids – AF/AE makes life so much easier, no matter how much I love manual cameras.

    • One thing I’ve learned already is that for the first five years I reviewed cameras, my skill at framing subjects was terrible. Also, the tools I had then to post-process my work were not very good, and I’m making some of those old photos much better in Photoshop now.
