    And just for fun- tried to capture the moon (cropped quite a bit, of course):

    Overall- a very good first ("test") roll. Very very pleased, actually.

    PS- was surprised how good this 'antiquated' autofocus system drove my "G" lenses!

    Really cool. Glad to see you jump into film head first. It is very satisfying. I actually prefer to shoot film over digital. I hate to scan though. One of these days I will plunge into prints, definitely by retirement. Time is what I lack. I can't wait to finish my role of Portra 160 that I loaded into my newly aquired Minolta Maxxum 9. I am not into auto focus but this one has me rethinking that, lightning quick. I took some cute (hopefully) pics of grand daughter last night. The view finder is glorious on it. Viewfinder is very important to me as I have learned.

    Yep- the viewfinder on this camera is SO much better than the classic Nikon FE viewfinder I use. I prefer digital for much of my shooting, but I like the way that faces in portraits portray with film- especially B/W, but all film, really.

    Looks like it's operating properly. :encouragement:

    I had mine out over the weekend powering it up and exercising it some. Took the strap off for another camera. But have a couple more straps coming. I have quite a bit of film, all exp though.

    My "old school" FE is a fun bit of nostalgia to use, but this F100 just feels so comfortable, going back-and-forth from the D610. About the same same size, and the controls are so similar! Really a nice shooting experience. This one is a winner!

    Expired film is often A-OK, isn't it?

    It can be ok if stored fairly properly. Heat reduces its life span quickly.
