Now, don't get me wrong, I love my D90 and will not be trading it in anytime soon. However, my Canon 35mm EOS 500N is a nifty little worker. I got the shots back from Kodax today, one hour service and was very impressed with the shots. They look gorgeous, the sharpness of the lens was just perfect.
I spoke to my guru Nigel of Spectrum TCR LTD on Tottenham Court Road and he told me that the camera is fine and I don't need anything else for it, possibly a zoom, for now, it is good to go.
Considering how old this Canon model is, I am very impressed with it as a 35mm.
It struck me today as I was working with it, given the fact that this camera is 35mm and shoots 35mm film, technically speaking, I am working "FULL FRAME" on film Camera. Now, contrast that with my D90 Crop Sensor 1.5, I think I can now explore the full benefit of Full Frame Photography without the financial burden of purchasing a Full Frame FX DSLR Camera - at least for now. This is great news for me and my wallet.
Today was great because I went back to Camden Market and shot exclusively with this camera. Given the fact that I could not see the results of my shooting, I feel very secure because, I experienced feeling at ease working with this analogue Canon and working in Aperture Value Mode, Program and Manual Mode. I am in no rush to see the images, I will process them in a few days. For now, enjoy the slide show below, these are from yesterdays shooting along with the blog from yesterday.
