The D1X again. At the Queens Botanic Garden. April or 2006. I forgot about the lens I used. It may have been the 60mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor.

Photo of the day Nov. 20, 2009 Nikon D1X


May of 2005 with the Nikon DIX, I don't remember the lens. The only thing I can say is that it was one of the most phenomenal camera when it came to color. I really miss it.

Photo of the day 11-19-09 Canon Ft


Shot in the summer of 1969 in Sicily with the Canon Ft, the Canon 50mm f1.4 FL on good old Kodachrome II. Yes it had an ASA [ISO] of 25. That was sufficient then to take photos in day time. Now we expect cameras to take shots at ridiculously high ISO settings. How times change.
