N2020

So as I mentioned I cleaned up Paul's old Nikon N2020 35mm film SLR camera, added a 50mm f1.8D AF NIKKOR normal lens, loaded it up with 4 AAAs and a roll of Kodak Gold 200 24exp. Lightweight. Autofocus, auto exposure. I normally don't use Program mode, but the N2020 treats AF NIKKORS as AI-S lenses, so it switches from Program to Program-Hi automatically based on focal length. Wanted to test how well Program mode works.

Most of the outdoor shots were taken out of the driver's window of the Bravada or the Blazer.

Walgreen's doesn't do a great job of digitally scanning, but its convenient. If I find a really great shot, I'll take the negative to a more expensive lab or get my own scanner.


First Light in its new role -- the new snow down our driveway, Monday before Thanksgiving. The snow looks crispier white than from the D1 digital camera. (Click on photo for larger.)

Reset to Aperture priority mode so I could control the f-stop and reduce the depth of field. Cropped shot of milkweed pod in the early snows, Thanksgiving Eve. (Click on photo for larger.)

December 1st, charging the 1996 Blazer's low battery. While it wouldn't start before the charge, I didn't lose my radio presets. (grin) (Click on photo for larger.)

December 12th, snow falling outside a Grand Rapids Medical Mile doctor's office. The new LED lit traffic signals don't generate enough heat to prevent snow and ice buildup. (Click on photo for larger.)

Last year they cut down most of the big trees on the north side of this road, but there's still this large, pair of bare trees on the south side. (Click on photo for larger.)

Probably my favorite shot from Friday the 13th. Scrub second generation trees infiltrating our stand of jack pines. (Click on photo for larger.)

Bottom line -- acceptable for basic pictures under harsh lighting conditions for a fully automated camera.
