Walking home from school, a brief chat, cameras and class one of them took. Diggie D-3100 Nikon. Focus F 2.5 105 mm manual one of the sharpest lens Nikon has made. But not here, not on “Auto” the camera works well when using auto lens but unless you have 20-20 vision the D-3100 diopter only goes to +.5 my eyes want +2. Ten feet away and they are not quite sharp. Focus! Stress! Distraction over to B+H diopters available for D-3100 models that don’t have built in Diopter, mine has built in diopter. Damn! Focus coffee and phone calls.
This Tulip shot with Auto Focus Nikon 28mm-105 macro Zoom. But in the interest of selling more product and upgrades this older Nikon lens doesn’t talk to the D-3100 so the Auto Focus doesn’t work. Manual focus on an auto lens has a small turn radius and with the wrong diopter well focus escapes me and the D-3100. I remember when Nikon was about great images not more plastic product to push. Hell you can fix it later in PS. Let Artificial Intelligence do the creating for you. Focus! Stress! It ain’t me babe.
More students more 105 not quite sharp but with Modern Emotion/creativity free software well it is Goodnuff. The new American standard GOODNUFF! I have a lot of trouble with good enough. But I am not comfortable with my smartphone making my life decisions. Wait wait I don’t have a smart phone. The idea of making ones own choices is a subversive idea, guess I won’t be on a reality TV show.
Even my excavator operator isn’t sharp but that could be how fast she moves or the different focus modes. More tests to do another stroll downtown, new bus pass lunch more coffee. Focus! Stress! Relief is spelled Nikon F 1967 B+W film. enjoy pjc
