The other day here in Vancouver, I happened to come across a guy who immediately caught my attention.
The reason was that he seemed to be using one of my all-time favourite cameras, a Nikon Photomic F2….one of, if not the only film camera built so solidly and with such precision, that it was chosen as the camera to be used by NASA during it’s space missions.
And in fact, the Nikon Photomic FTn was used in the Apollo 15 mission.
But anyways, back to the guy with the Nikon….his name is Miroslaw Gwiazda, who just happens a fervent film user, shooting huge quantities of Ilford 3200, as well as moving pictures and large format. He also does his own film processing, too.
I think this guy is going places….see his work here
was selected as a special manufacturer of 35mm cameras for NASA.
