Hi!

Somebody just gave me a Nikon F55 (N55 in the US) as a gift. I'm so excited!
There's an AF Nikkor 28-80mm 1:3.5-5.6D on it, too.

It wasn't easy to find CR2 batteries and films on a Saturday afternoon, but I did it

The camera is small, light and fits my hands perfectly. It's also rather quiet and responsive. I love it so far!

I know this isn't about digital photography, but it's my first non-vintage SLR, so please don't delete my thread!

I bought a mint F65 and it handles all of my lenses with AFS and VR compatibility.  I have an Ilford BW 400 film that I'm waiting for the right moment/subject to use it.

Film still has a quality that I like but doesn't get a lot of my time. the camera is worthless on eBay but not to me.

good luck with it..

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness.' :'!':
