My Nikon D500 has been hospitalized :(

Inspiration, Q&A, Teaching point

After one year of flawless performance, my Nikon D500 is in need of repair…

Fortunately it’s still under warranty.


Tonight was the night of my son’s choir solo!

So, I loaded my Leica M3 with this:

Yes, my Leica M3 + Undisclosed Lens #1 + ASA (ISO) 1600 Fujifilm.

Next week, I’ll have the roll developed and scanned.

Fingers crossed!

  1. Well
    A), having just received a D500 and fallen in love with it, I’m troubled.
    B) ahh, the good old days when ISO1600 was crazy-stupid fast. The last stop of sanity before breaking out the TMAX-3200. I guess we were willing to live with noise (grain) back then in favor of actually capturing an image.

  2. Undisclosed lenses are the best lenses. 🙂 Sorry to hear about your camera. These breakdowns are very annoying. I have to admit that I have not yet experienced a camera malfunction. I wonder how long I’ll get away with that.

    BTW, Louis, you might like to know that pros were shooting Fuji colour negative film at ISO 3200 in the mid 1980s. I can send you an email with a scan from a short article from 1985 if you like. Film is more capable than its proponents know. 😉
