Leica IIIg in the Downtown Core

 Haven't shot with Kentmere 400 in a while so I decided to load up some into my Leica IIIg and try out my Nikkor H 50 F2 on it for a wander aound downtown Toronto while I took care of some errands. 

First off, haven't used Kentmere 400 since Frugal Film Poject 2023, I used a Nikkormat with an H 50 F2 lens. So why not try the Leica screw mount namesake on the IIIg, technically it was period correct, compared to say the 50 F2.5 Color Skopar from Voigtlander. The Nikkor H 50 F2 cemented Nippon Kogaku's reputation as a lens maker and was shipped on Japanese Leica copies called Nicca. Saw one at the June Toronto Film Shooters Photo Walk and, resisting the urge for yet another rabbit hole. 

The Nikkor H 50 F2 is sharp glass in Leica Screw Mount (LTM/M39) and loves both colour and black and white film. The IIIg was a fun camera to shoot with wandering around downtown Toronto. The dual focusing and view finding windows were easy to get used to and with contemparay shutter speeds easy to figure things out on the fly. 

Camera: Leica IIIg, Nikkor H 50 F2 lens. 

Film: Kentmere 400, Ilfotec HC 1+31.
