Ok,
In a moment of madness ,and looking on E-Bay at film cameras I came across a F50 Nikon with 3 mins to go and bid £20 for it.

It came with a broken lens which might have put people of.

Well, you guessed it :p.I won it for £15:D, NOW.....lol

Is the F50 any bloomin good(y),or have I bought a dog....:shake:

Wrong forum, can Marcel or someone shift to film please.....sorry...

For £15 can you really complain anyway?

I have recently bought an F80 for £46.00 and its brilliant! I think the F50 is a little more basic, cant be sure though!

I think the F50 was the entry level SLR of it's day, sort of the D40 but more plasticky.

But as already said, for 15 nicker, you can't complain.

Get a lens on it and run a film through the puppy.

Got it today, a bit plasticky as sprog says, auto focus sounds like a banshee,
but hey,otherwise it,s cool.

Tried a nifty 50 and the Sigma 28-200 and both work fine .

Clunks like hell but will have to shove a film through it to see results.

Sent for some Fuji Reala? 100 so I,ll wait for that.(y)
