Can’t fix Stupid

WTF Nikon. Don’t forget that film made you and digital will kill you in the end…and it’s not just NIKON… camera makers have lost their minds in the quest for profits… all photographs are valuable.

  1. What? That is really hard to believe! I wonder what their reasoning is — if they have any! And at a time when film seems to be having somewhat of a revival. We are having a film challenge of on and I’m mildly surprised at the response and how many are actually participating.

    Keep of the great work Stephen. Thank you!

    1. I’d guess that this is as much a marketing exercise as it is a photographic contest; and Nikon sells digital. No reason to promote film, and every reason not to.

  2. I have one Canon g12 and a digital studio camera. But I do all of my personal work on b&w film. All formats inc 8 x 10. Digital is for convenience only. Fight on.

  4. Absolute lunacy. I do not enter contests, period. But, what if I did want to shoot with my Nikon F, F2, F3, or FE2, and enter? These are all cameras that were part of Nikon’s legacy to professionals and advanced amateurs. Makes no sense at all. Ironically, I had Nikon install a new light meter LCD panel into my F3.
