Welcome to the New Nikon F6 Project, devoted to exploring all things related to the Nikon F6 35mm camera, Nikon’s final, flagship, professional single digit F-series camera.
Do something different. Shoot film using Nikon’s Creative Lighting System and challenge yourself to make unique, creative photographs. Having a tool like the F6 that is able to respond to virtually any photographic situation is a true blessing.
OK, so maybe I jumped the gun a little. Maybe I still do have something to say regarding the F6. Allow me to explain. Over the past several years I've enjoyed shooting with a variety of cameras, including all the Nikon single-digits F-series, as well as a few...
10 years ago when I first put up the F6 Project I was re-invigorated with passion for film photography, the camera, and this new journey I had embarked on: stepping off the digital camera merry-go-round onto solid, analogue ground once again: film, and the film way....
Not long ago I decided to spend some focused time shooting Ilford's PanF 50 Plus. In an effort to minimize variables the decision was made to focus on 35mm using the trusted and favored F6. The F6's venerable meter virtually eliminates exposure error, and I really...
One of the great joys of shooting and developing one's own film is the ability to tweak and experiment. While it's true one needs to be prepared to have experiments fail - it's also true that when they succeed, it can introduce a new component to your shooting,...
Flying with film doesn’t need to be intimidating. This brief list of do’s and don’ts will help get you and your film on the plane faster, easier and help insure success upon your return.
The Nikon F6 35mm camera is the most technically advanced film camera ever made. Understanding what makes it special is the primary purpose of this section. So put your Tech on and dive in.
Possessing the most sophisticated 35mm film camera ever made is great. But what to create with it? This section is focused on inspiration. Be prepared to be inspired by what others are creating with the Nikon F6.

You’ve landed on the mother-load of information about the greatest 35mm film camera ever made, the Nikon F6. As digital cameras progress to staggering levels of sophistication (and in many cases, cost), somehow – right along side – the use of film has continued on the rise, and even accelerated.
You’re lookin’ at it. The F6 Project 3.0 is here, back from the jaws of death. O.K., maybe a little melodramatic… but after 10+ years he’s still kickin’. I want to say a hearty ‘thank you’ to a certain someone responsible from talking sense into me when I was thinking of throwing in the towel. You know who you are. Thank you.
One of the big changes for me creatively since the beginning of the F6 Project is developing my own black and white film again, . Ironic, I know, to have such a colorful image behind this topic. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? More about that here.
Today’s photographer has more creative options to explore than any other time in history. What a great time to dive in, shoot film, learn to develop both color and black and white, then print old school in a darkroom – or – on one of the high-quality inkjet printers available.
Still King of the Hill.
