Analog Diary:

Bypassed by Time

'Five frames with the Nikon N75 and AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm F3.5~4.5 D, and a railway station bypassed by time'

Due to a time constraint, I had the chance of taking only half a dozen shots of this railway station I was at recently. While the passenger coaches were modern EMU's (Electrical Multiple Units) and the station front was with updated services elements, the platform area itself was rather blighted, a sight that seems to have been bypassed by time. Remnants of scaffolded tanks for water storage, dilapidated and fenced up godown units, and lethargic looking platform roofs were the order of the day.

I was using the AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-105mm f/3.5~4.5D mounted on N75 for the shoot. The 16-elements in 12-groups NIC (Nikon Integrated Coating) multicoated FX lens, is a great push-pull zoom that works perfectly on all 35mm Nikons as well as Nikon FX digital cameras made since 1977. Acknowledged sharp throughout its range, from a wide 35mm to a short 105mm telephoto, the lens is well suited for family photographs or for your travel vacations.

The N75 35mm SLR film camera the lens was mounted on is no slouch either. The camera (also marketed ad N75, and U2) which was in 2003, is a very advanced SLR camera built with innovations that makes the F5 (1959), and F80 (2000) legends of their own. Exposure programming is a veritable choice of Automatic, Vari-Program Modes, and PASM, while metering is a 25-segment Matrix pattern with five user autofocus sensors.

The AF system of the N75 works with every AF, VR, AF-I and AF-S lens ever made by Nikon, and with manual focus lenses, a confirmation dot electronic rangefinder system. Finally, the N75/F75/U2 is also last of the breed, the final model Nikon produced before the launch of the digital D100 and later the D70.
