"They say you can't use any tricks to photograph with the Nikkormat.
You have to master the basics in order to push it to the limit.
The Nikkormat is a camera that trains the photographer."

"It's got wonderful AF."
"What are you saying? Don't be dumb. How could a Nikkormat have AF?"
"Because.."
"That was human AF.
Those photographers who've gotten use to modern cameras equipped with AF would never be able to master quick changes in subject distances in time. AF is computer controlled, so it can't surpass the eye and left hand of a well trained photog."

"The emblem on the front of the camera is from the 1 of the unbeatable legend! Can you keep up with my 1?"

No prizes if you guess where the lines come from. ;p

Hey, it came out after I found a Nikkormat at my friend's place. Even with PS-8 slide copy adaptor! NEATNESS!

:light: I just got an idea! Wahaha!

Actually, seasoned photographers who swear by manual equipment can indeed focus faster than the 1V. They can judge distances rather accurately, preset it on the lens, and by the time they lift the camera to their eyes, they just need to "touch up" a bit or let DoF cover any errors.

And better still, they have better light meters in their eye/brain than what the Big 2 makers have. In the condition that their camera batteries die, they can still gauge exposures rather accurately. :)
