The only one I checked that was accurate almost exactly was my Nikon N6006 thirty-year-old 35mm camera. It has an electronic shutter. I was amazed at how accurate it was especially after all these years. It had also sat on the shelf for half that time.
    Here's a bunch I shot recently with the N6006 with Tmax 400. Everything on the camera worked great after all these years. The zoom lens is not so sharp. What do you think?

    Nice work! Tmax is great film. Makes me want to pull out the old PZ-1. I purchased that camera Houston Camera Exchange 29 years ago next month. It's great to hold and I still get a kick out of shooting with it.
