To be truthful, I have yet to discover if there are actually any pro's here, but it matters little. My conundrum follows: Considering the difficulty of finding high-quality/slide/medium format film in today's age, i'm beginning to grow tired of bracketing and burning through a $9+ roll of film and having 3 acceptable shots. (It bears mentioning that I live in Alabama and photographic supplies are not exactly readily available.) I do not yet have the money to go digital on the level I would like, so an idea formulated into my head. Why not buy an older digital that would take my Nikon lenses, like a D1 or maybe even a D100 and run it straight to a monitor, at which point I can bracket with it first, and then determine the proper settings, mount the lens on my F100, set and shoot. That way I can theoretically see my shot before its burned onto film and not worry about using 6 frames on 1 image. Now I know a good pro should be able to capture his image properly, simply by using his meter readings, eye, and brain, but this seemed so much more interesting. Therefore I ask this question: Does this seem like a reasonable alternative to a D2X and a breakthrough in film photography! -OR- Completely and utterly ridiculous. Fire away.
