    Who suppports an SLR with their left thumb on the side? It's around the lens so you can adjust the aperture, focus etc. He was probably dreaming about the date he had the night before.

    He was adjusting the aperture with his left index finger. The lenses had finger indents for movement.

    His right finger is on the shutter release.

    I think I can read "Nippon Kogaku" on the lens ID ring, but it's hard to say what it might be beyond that. And I still think he has an AR-1 on the shutter release and will actuate the shutter by pressing the AR-1 with the second joint of his index finger, not his finger pad.

    But more broadly, check out this other photo, Yoichi doing a "selfie" before that word was invented. I love the pipe and the Nikon SP!

    Interesting man:born in Yonkers, NY in 1915, U.S. Army photographer in WWII, etc. Read more about him and see his White House work here:

    Yes -- a Nikon that you keep in the glove box of your Rolls Royce, IIRC!

    Hmm. I will have to keep a log re shots with my (black) F2AS bodies vs my (chrome) F2A bodies to test the validity of your remark: Possibly my F2AS shots bear the hallmark of a pro, while the F2A shots suggest the work of an amateur? lol
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    I can't help you there, I had a black F in pristine condition and sold it because it was too pretty to use.

    Really?!?! I thought the "Too Pretty to Use Club" was exclusive to the Leica Fanboy contingent of the analogue community... (Yes, I know, I own a pair of M6s, but mine are fed a fairly steady diet of HP5/Tri-X...with a little bit of E100G thrown in for good measure!).

    What about the focus ring? One finger? Indents assist but one finger? No thumb? Who does that?
