I made all these gold mine photographs using Nikon F4's and Nikon SB24 flash guns on E6 RDP 35mm Fujichrome 100ASA tranny (slide) film. Those Nikon film cameras were up to a bit of a battering. Im not sure you could use most digital cameras in this level of humidity with the constant fine spray in the air leaving water dripping off everything. It was a total assault on the cameras as well as the people down there. One thing about Nikon F4's and the later F5's they were a bit like the South African gold miners themselves......... undeniably tough.
