I love this camera. Everything about it feels right: the weight, the way it fits into my hand, the controls are where I want them to be. Thom Hogan has a nice review of it on his site

The funny thing is that I didn’t even buy this camera. In some cases I see listings for a camera with a lens. Sometimes I’m just looking for the lens, but if the price is right I’ll buy the combination. The body is a plus. In this case the listing was just for the lens, but when the lens arrived there was a body with it: this Nikon N90s (or F90x as I believe it’s called outside of the US).

It’s a very solid camera, which I very much enjoyed using. I also tried a different film: Fuji Superia X-tra 400. It was on sale at Walmart for about $7 for a pack of four. It’s not bad but the results had a little too much contrast and were a bit too green for my taste.

My last attempt a having film developed and scanned at CVS was not a great success (although that could have been because the film had been in the camera for a very long time). So this time I decided to try something different. I sent it off to “The Darkroom“. I haven’t yet received the CD and the negatives, but the scanned images were made available on their site within a day or two of them receiving the film. All in all I’m pleased with the results.

There are more pictures (this time in black and white) of the Maple Ave. Cemetery (And Combined Church Cemeteries) in another post.
