Title: A quick note on Nikonís new retro Zfc
Post by: stevebri on August 05, 2021, 02:42:27 am
Hi all,

Just wanted to share this with fellow Ďolderí pro shooters on here..
We have our fair share of large and expensive pro kit to enable us to do our jobs, MF, DSLRís, FF mirrorless plus all those lights and grip. But what do we use at the weekends..? Our smartphones normally.

So for the first time in my life I prefer ordered this camera with the 28mm (42mm) retro kit lens.

I love it for the following reasons:

It reminds me of my early days when we snapped for fun.
Itís small and light and retro.
Technically itís amazing, great focus, super sharp, super image quality and super colours.
You can set the lens to change aperture when you rotate itÖ! How old school is that..?
Using SnapBridge itís so easy to send a file to your phone, itís rock solid and works seamlessly.

But I will confess, as a guy in his 50ís itís a cool capable camera to take out after work, just for fun, to try funny, silly techniques again.
Photography with not clients opinions, not shot list, no products to includeÖ.

Just fun again.

Iím glad I broke my rule and pre-ordered itÖ
