Exploring Film #7: Fast lenses and a benchmark SLR but more light bleed
A few photos from some friends child’s first birthday, Lyra, and a goofy pirate.
Okay, so you probably noticed the white blotch that appears in most of the photos. This is from a small tear in the second shutter curtain and varies in intensity depending on how long the shutter is loaded with light coming through the lens.
Nikon F (Photomic T)
The Nikon F is a benchmark SLR that was introduced in 1959, with this particular model (TTL lightmeter) being released in 1965, and established the F-mount system still used in Nikon SLRs today.
