    I always loved the look of newspaper style images from the 1980's and, although digital gives superb IQ I was struggling to find a look I really liked for street photography.


    Anyway.........to cut a long story short I purchased a Nikon F3 (a camera I dreamed of owning as a teenager - I had a Nikon FE2 in the 1980's) and put some Ilford HP5 film in it; which is another old favorite.

    Took the camera out last weekend to check for light leaks and exposure.

    Gosh, I love film and the Nikon F3:

    Yes but did you feel the urge to look at the back of the camera every time you took a shot? :)

    I never look at the back of my digital camera when I'm taking/have taken a shot either, only if I'm using my wife's compact which doesn't have a VF :)

    Hi Matt :) Yes is the answer but having an ever-ready case on it stopped that very quickly!

    Welcome back to the world of film and old cameras Fraser, plenty of like-minded folk here in the F&C section. :) Be careful though, it can be quite addictive, especially if you discover how nice the images from some of the 1950s medium format folding cameras can look; I still reckon it's the best image quality you can get from a camera costing under £100! Enjoy your 'new' Nikon and don't forget to post some results on here, there are plenty of long running 'post a photo' type threads to take part in. (y)
