Testing my Nikon One Touch L35 AF3 film camera.

Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 color negative film (expired 2019-11). No post-processing. Scanned by the lab.

I’m very pleased with the results of my recent test roll through the Nikon. The One Touch AF3 (987) has a Nikon f2.8 35mm lens that’s been reported to be not quite as sharp as the original Nikon lens used in the first version of the camera, the Nikon L35AF. The autofocus was accurate and I’m pleased with the autoexposure of this image given the late afternoon sun and strong contrast of the scene. I’ll be testing the original L35 soon and I’ll be able to get some comparisons between the two.

Same roll of Fujicolor Superia X-TRA 400 film.

It would have been interesting to have shot with some of the new Kodak films but with the current price of film, I stayed with the Fujicolor. I’m happy with the Nikon’s performance. More pics to follow. If you’re interested to learn more (much more) about this Nikon compact P&S camera check out Mike Eckman’s fantastic post at

This little camera performed like new! Sharp and fast Nikon f/2.8 35mm lens.
