Nikon N8008

I picked up this cool 35mm Nikon N8008 SLR about 6 months ago.  I'm a digital Nikon shooter in studio, so I have a natural affinity to Nikons.  It is a classic SLR film camera.  Easy in your hand and fairly light weight.  I decided to use it in studio during a model shoot and later while walking around downtown Indianapolis.

OK, I loaded it up with a roll of Kodak 400 color print film and mounted an old Nikon 28mm f/2.8 lens.  I've had that lens for who knows how long...years.  Off I go.

For this shoot I used aperture priority and matrix metering.  The camera focused very quickly and the shutter slap is very apparent.  The light meter seemed very true, but I didn't confirm it with my external meter.  Not stealthy at all.  I really think I'll enjoy using this camera regularly.  Here are some photos of my model Emmy Lindgren in studio and a shot in downtown Indianapolis near my studio.  I simply set the camera on the street.  Why? Why not.
