My wife Kay and daughter Emily Mathews participated in the annual OKC Run Lucky 5K foot race this past weekend. For fun I took my Nikon F3 camera mounted with a 50 1.8 manual focus lens and a couple of rolls of Kodak TMAX-100 film. Picking up and using that camera sure reminded me of why it is my favorite all time camera. It is small, easy to handle, has an awesome screen and great ergonomics. Even though I have all the latest and greatest digital gear, sometimes it is fun to just go back to the basics and enjoy shooting an all manual camera.
