5 Frames with the Nikon One-Touch Zoom 90 – By Mike Caputo

June 13, 2019

If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is already running a bit long at 5,016. To sum up my sentiments, every point-n-shoot is the same. It’s called, “The Point-n-Shoot”. Paying more than $10 for any of them is crazy in my opinion. I wasn’t always of that mind, but I am now. Who knows, I’ll probably change it again tomorrow.

The following photos are from a test of the Nikon One Touch Zoom 90 I got for a dollar at a garage sale. Shot with 30 year old expired Kodak 400TX, developed in stock Kodak D76 (no idea of the temperature or how many rolls I put through the gallon previously), and haphazardly scanned in jpeg while drinking Guinness and listening to the Misfits.


For some additional fun and a middle finger to outrageously priced point-n-shoots I decided to make a 16×20 darkroom print from one of these negatives, because why the hell not!

And that’s all she wrote.

    Spot on – what a ringing endorsement for just making images with whatever is at hand, and fantastic images they are too! @littleshannonsheep on IG takes some fantastic macro shots and when asked which lenses she used, said she didn’t know, as she uses a digital bridge camera! That’s put a smile on my face for a Friday. Cheers
