    I'm stoked!

    I've never even tried anything with film photography before, so I sense a steep learning curve coming up... I'll be around here often, I think :wink:.

    Darn straight! That's how I got my FE.

    As for your score, congrats. I've never used an MV, but I bet it's a great camera. I "learned" on a Pentax K1000 and still love it. Can't wait to see the shots you get.

    Bear in mind this is the first time I've ever done this...

    I finished the roll, went to wind it back in and it kind of 'cracked' as i wound it back, then it suddenly went slack and I was winding for ages, thinking 'wow, this is a long roll of film!'. After a while, I opened the back and that jumped out at me!

    Turns out there's a useful little button that stops that from happening... why, oh why didn't I check how to do this before just assuming it was a simple task...? Lesson well learned, I suppose :blushing:

    The camera seems fine despite my assault.
