I’ve found using Nikkor Ai manual focus lenses with a Nikon digital snapper fun to use. These old style lenses work well with Nikon’s DSLRs as most digital models are F mounts. Using Nikkor Ai lenses adds a different perspective to taking photographs. Especially for street photography where manually setting aperture / focal distance and putting your DSLR into manual mode makes it easy to point and snap.
You simply point in the general direction and push the shutter. It’s that easy. I find setting the aperture to f/8 and focal distance to about 6-7 feet and setting the body to manual mode works best for me. This set up works best with a 35mm focal length or even using a 50mm lens.
