Back to film...
Nov 7, 2008

So I ordered a used Nikon FM2N. I shot with a friend's Pentax K1000 and absolutely loved using it. The images will come out about the same, but the whole process had me hooked, from the focusing to advancing the film with my thumb.

I had never shot film before, and have been using a D80 for about two years (which I still love).

Has anyone had this experience? It just seems strange that after shooting digital I would go back to an all-manual film camera.

Of course, I plan on using the D80 for any paid work, but for my actual "enjoyment" photography, I plan on using the FM2N.
