Nikon FM and Ilford Delta 100
The Nikon FM, the compact prosumer workhorse that replaced the long running Nikkormat series in Nikon's product line up in 1977. Debuting along with the Automatic Indexing feature with the F mount, the weird tick of open and closing the aperture could be dispensed with. But you can tell any true Nikon film camera nerd who does this with all their bodies and lenses. The FM was Nikon's answer to the Olympus OM-1 that was released in the early 1970s and shaking up the camera. market. There's not a whole much you can say, it's a solid SLR that works either in the Summer heat or the bone chilling cold of February.
So, about this set. I had to drop my car off at Oakville VW for its annual maintenance, took a long walk home with my Minolta X-700, well, this was the walk back. Now something weird with the Corvette Stingray and Film.Ca Movie theatre photos, I was at a loss why the frames were blown out. I ran another roll of Delta 100 through my chrome FM (the black is pictured, didn't take a photo of my chrome FM) I used on the not quite so long but still long walk back to Oakville VW. I think something happened either durning loading the tank, or while bulk loading the roll of film in the first place. Call it happy accident. I do like both images but, yeah, not your usual Ilford Delta 100 grainless crispness.
