Another walk in the forest, this time with the Nikon F3, a Nikkor 35mm f/2 lens and a roll of Kodak Gold 200 film. I would have likes to use the Pentax 6x7 but it is definitely too cold for it now (bellow 0°C the mirror often get stuck when firing the shutter which is really annoying!). The Nikon F3 on the other hand seems 100% reliable and any conditions, I have never had any issues with it. For this roll of film I chose it over the FM3 because I assume it is a bit tougher and it is better for long exposures (shutter speed goes down to 8 sec instead of 1 sec for the FM3, it has a mirror lock-up and a reliable timer). In terms of metering however I had not used the F3 for a while and I really do not like the LCD meter, the needle in the FM / FM3 is so much better!!! In addition, the meter in the F3 is totally unusable in the dark. There is a small light to light up the LCD but the button to turn it on is hard to impossible to push, especially when wearing gloves! I ended up several times using my digital camera for metering. Anyway, here are a few pictures I got.
