today i got to realise a dream :)
from a long time ago, the image of the Nikon F5 comes to my mind when people talk about cameras...
this is my favorite camera body :)

today i got to shot a roll of film on the F5, the camera was on loan to me cause i wanted to see the result of the 80-200mm lens on film, and this was the best film camera body to handle this lens :)

the handling of this camera is sweet :) very similar to my D2x, slightly smaller and a more quiet shutter sound...and the legendary auto focus speed is just awsome...i hav since return the camera...i'll miss it...:)
maybe some day i'll own one of these truth beast among film cameras :)

Beautifully captured, Koh. Nice street scene but you have managed to isolate one person which makes it very interesting but at the same providing good context aroung him. Very good light & rich colours. His face is maybe a bit dark but that is very difficult to manage. Well done!

Hi BK,

I really this daily life photo! It's so vivid in colours and sharp in details even though it's film! Indeed a fantastic quality camera!

Very well done and TFS

Honestly, this is an image we see the world over every day. It gives no insight to the reality of the subject. I would compare it to a photo of a man taking groceries to his car in Canada or America.

Hi Xu,

Nicely captured, excellent moment.

Hi BK,
Nice colours and composition for that daily life shot. Bamboos and other foliage make a nice framing.

Hi Xu,
How come that you are able to use that many different cameras. I think it has to do with your job, but then I wonder where you work. I can´t imagine it is Simlim Square.
This photo really brings back great memories. I used to spend a lot of time in Little India. I just loved the atmosphere and the livelyhood of the place. This is a great street photo.
