Once again my friend Enrique has lent me a camera whose previous job was to serve as a decorative object and collect dust. When I saw the Nikon EM the first thing I did was check that it worked, without batteries it would shoot in B, M90 (1/90 sec,) and Auto (1/1000 sec), I immediately decided that I could make an article with it, so I took home. It was like new with no scratches or wear.
I recently visited The Photographers’ Gallery in London which has changing and varied exhibitions. It’s just off busy Oxford Street, and if you are going to be in the area then check out the website to see what’s on.Along with a cafe on the ground floor, there’s a shop in the basement which stocks an impressive range of specialist books, magazines and journals. They also sell 35mm and other format films including products by Bergger, Washi, Kosmo and Silberra. I couldn’t leave without buying at least one roll I hadn’t tried before and there’s a big selection.
It’s like the deodorant Secret: “Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.”…
The Nikon EM perfect! I love it. There’s nothing it can’t do. Well… that’s an exaggeration. There’s nothing I can’t make it do that it shouldn’t be able to do. There’s plenty of “features” missing; I simply use my vast and overpowering will to crush those obstacles. I’m the boss, not the machine. I say what goes, and for the 5 bucks I paid for this camera I’m willing to boss it around a ton.
