It's been a while since the last random film...

Today's film of choice is another roll of Boots 200 (DX code 001304 so probably Fujicolor 200 - the Fuji Super G 200 settings look reasonable) dating from my Brightonian days. In fact I can date this film fairly accurately - the first few photos are of pleaseremove unboxing what was at the time a shiny new Nikon D80, which would likely make this mid 2007. For a laugh I took the lens from his new camera (a Zoom-Nikkor AF-S DX G lens, I forget the focal length), stuck it on the ancient F-301 and took a photo in Program mode. The result: a perfectly exposed photo of pleaseremove, albeit with camera shake due to the slow aperture. The F-301 is fairly unique in that it does proper closed-loop metering and so gives a correct exposure even with lenses without the mechanical aperture coupling.

Hilariously, going the other direction doesn't work anywhere near as nicely - if you take a non-CPU lens and mount it on the D80 then the camera just throws its hands up and drops back to full manual mode. I don't think it even gave focus or metering assists. I do recall it behaved itself better with the SB-16 flashgun and would happily drive that with some level of automatic exposure (though digital cameras can't do proper TTL flash metering) - impressively, the SB-16 could keep up with the D80's motor drive mode for a good dozen or so exposures.

Anyway, enough rambling and time for the photos!

Probably the South Downs. Possibly even Ditchling Beacon, from the same outing as last time.

A rainy day in Brighton.

Yet another Brighton sunset, complete with seagull.

Sometimes my abstract photos are intentional, but other times they happen by chance or by error.

Surfing on the sky. Amazing how different it looks when rotated 180° from how I took it.

And finally the last photo on this film, of a thorny plant stretching out towards the sky.
