24 Jun SHOP.- ASSEMBLING THIS BEAUTY WITH A FISHEYE
Full process of assembling a beautiful vintage set:
NIKON F FTN + NIKKOR 15MM F/3.5 AI-S + NIKON F-36 MOTOR + NIKON F-36 BATTERY PACK
The F-36 Drive Motor is a 275 g lightweight motor drive for film up to 36 exposures (to extend automatic fire power to applications where frequent film changes are impractical you may use the Nikon F-250 Motor Drive).
This drive completely replaces the Nikon F’s back and, when mounting it on your F camera, you will need to replace a button plate coming with the body with the F Motor Drive Plate. This accessory plate synchronises film transport with the motor.
The F36 was designed specifically for Nikon F-series cameras. It shoots sequentially between two and four frames per second at shutter speeds of 1/8 to 1/1000 of a second. Single shots are fired at any speed.
The F36 Cordless battery pack, attached directly to the F36 motor drive, transforms the Nikon F into an automatic unit.
For this video, as lens, we used a lovely Nikkor 15mm f/3.5 Ai-S. The 15mm was Nikon’s widest lens back in the 1980s, apart the 13mm f/5.6 and the 8mm f/2.8. With lovely exterior appearance still is an expensive lens.
