Some of the cameras I use.

A little bit of information about some of the cameras I use:

Nikon F2 SB.

The Nikon F2SB was introduced in 1976 to 1977; The F2 range was Nippon Kogaku’s second professional SLR, aimed to replace the highly successful Nikon F.

Nikon F4.

The Nikon F4 (1988 to probably 2000) was the first professional Nikon to offer autofocus and is able to accept any of Nikon’s manual focus or AF lenses from 1959 to the present day. It is probably the best manual focus camera ever to be released as it will meter with just about any lens that Nikon has ever made.

Bronica S2a.

The Bronica S2a introduced in 1969 was one of a number of medium format cameras that used both Nikon and Bronica lenses.

Jebel Harim Musandam.

Hello World.

I have been thinking about starting a blog of photographs made here in Oman for a long time.

Anyway here it is – I hope you like it.

A little info about my pictures and the equipment I use.


All images appearing in this web site are the exclusive property of David A Lockwood but if you would like to use any of them please contact me – I will probably say yes.

Enough of that.

Film – I have not gone over to the dark side! I just cannot interact with a digital camera, so the nearest I come is using a scanner.

Most of the images are taken with my trusty Nikon F4 or F2 (both really nice intuitive cameras) and for larger negatives I use a Bronica S2a which was a very nice gift from my daughter a few years ago (very good Nikon lenses).

I use a traditional darkroom setup – getting harder to find suppliers  here in Oman over the last few years…..

A word of warning, I am terrible with giving information about camera setting, film used and even the place the image was made: But I will try. Google Earth plus GPS is now my friend.

Enough for now, I will add more as I go along; after all this is about photographs not me writing.
