I went at night (8PM) to check out a new sculpture from the artist Kaws at the Plaza in Coral Gables. Unfortunately it was sectioned off with those VIP rope things. I couldn't get close and could only photograph the back of it. I then went to the second floor and a security guard told me I could not photograph it with my camera only my phone...
I pointed at my camera and said its an old school film camera. He waved his hand at my camera, mumbled something and walked away.
I loved using the Nikon Lite Touch AF camera and had many positive experiences with it. But, a huge problem started happening with the shutter— it's now stuck. When ever I turn on the camera, everything seems normal, and sometimes it is... But a growing problem keeps happening. The aperture blades are jammed, causing the camera to shut off every time I tried to take a photo.
I attempted to fix the aperture blades, but it quickly became apparent that my Macgyver skills weren't enough for this repair. This photo marks the moment I realized my fix had come to an end. This camera is now dead.
Nikon Lite Touch AF Update
My awesome camera is now totally broken.
Buy another one? It's more expensive now so probably no. Might try to find something else cheaper.
I lost about two rolls of film before I attempted my last ditch effort to fix it.
As I pulled out the roll from my development tank I didn't think I had anything. Darn, it looked overexposed. I almost didn't even scan the negatives. But I did, and here is what I got. It's not perfect but I got it and I got it on film!
Shot on Kodak Ektar 100 film using my Nikon F6 w/ the Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6 D ED lens. In cloudy skies from Miami Florida - October 14 2023 around 1:30 PM.
The eclipse isn't visible in this one but I love how it looks. Oh how wonderful the return of Jesus Christ shall be.
