March (2019) Nikon Rangefinder Month

A longstanding RFF tradition, going back a few years at least, is Nikon Rangefinder Month, each year in March. Dust off those old Nikon rangefinders and load them up with film, and post what you got here in this thread! Less than two weeks away...

I'm a right wanker in my old age. Just got back nine rolls of film I had developed and scanned from last year's photography production. I was missing a couple of rolls that I expected to be in the lot, so I got to digging through the camera bags, and there it was, the roll from March 2018 still sitting in the S2 (and a roll from Red Oktober in the Zorki-6, but that's another story). Thing was, according to my records I didn't even finish the roll until June.


To say the least, last year was a time of change and turmoil for me, and I hope to do better this year. But here it is the middle of March already, and I completely forgot about getting the Nikon out for a session. Will have to rectify that situation soon.

I have a roll in my S2 almost finished..... I started it in February (shhhh don't tell anyone!) but if the weather cooperates this weekend I'll finish it and post some by Sunday night.

HA!!!

To be honest, this has been the worst winter I can remember, possibly in my lifetime. Never had to deal with so much ice everywhere. Sidewalks, Driveways, Streets, Parking lots, you name it. All slicker than snot and continuously covered in a thin layers of snow or water. Quite treacherous out here in the burbs. Hope it's safer where you are.

Best,
-Tim

Don't know how many of you have been following TomA's Flickr, but the Head Bartender has been inventorying Tom's Nikon rangefinder stash. Tuulikki took a nice photo of them at https://www.flickr.com/photos/rapidw...951778/in/feed

I only own a Nikon S2 with 50mm f/1.4 for about 5 months. These were some test shots with the first rolls: first HP5+, second Portra 400.

Shot some Ektachrome in the S2 this past week. It's off to Dwayne's for processing. If I get any good ones, I'll post.

Best,
-Tim

I took my S2 to Bali with a brief layover in Taipei over the last two weeks. Will try to post some photos I shot for this year's Nikon Rangefinder Month.


In the meantime here's my S2 getting some attention in Bali

While I wait for my Ektachrome to return from Dwayne's, here's a shot from last week with my Nikon Rangefinder lens (3.5cm f1.8) on a Nikon body (Z6).



Best,

Missed this year's Nikon RF month as I've been shooting almost exclusively with my Widelux in 35mm. However in February I did shoot some with my Nikon SP so have a few images from that excursion:

Fort Pulaski, on the GA coast:





And two from around Savannah, GA:

Is anybody of you Nikon-rangefinder shooters using like me the incomparable Voigtländer S Skopar 50mm F2.5 on a regular basis? Since I have mine, I do not use the Nikkors 50mm f/2 and f/1.4 anymore. I'm so happy with this small and super handy lens. I've never seen a sharper lens in my life. Distortion free too.

Erik.

Nice combo! I have looked at the S mount Color Skopar 50/2.5 several times because they are so reasonably priced here in Japan, but never purchased one. Your comments on this lens are tempting me even more

A few photos from late March from my trip to Bali. I was carrying my S2 with the 5cm f1.4 mounted, and loaded with HP5+

I finished my roll of film in March and loaded a second one, which I finally finished and developed a couple weeks ago. Most was from May and June I think! But this one was at the beginning of the roll and it looks like March.... Fog always comes out really grainy for me but that may be a function of how I scan. This is with the S2 and Jupiter-12.
