    Sorry, I don't really know how to properly phrase my problem. The thing is, when I put a new roll of film into my N80, it auto-loads the film past the first couple of frames. So, when I get the film back from the developer, the first two frames are blank.
    With my old all-manual SLR, I could manually advance the film to start where I wanted it to, with the result that I could get about 27 exposures from a 24-exposure roll. Now, I get 25. Call me a cheapskate, but...
    Is it possible to change that behavior in my N80? I've been through the manual from beginning to end a couple of times, with no luck. It's behaved like this since it was new; it's not a problem that's developed over time.

    Thanks for any help or insights.

    I own two N80’s, and both cameras do the same thing. I think this anomaly is inherent to the camera design and not really a defect.

    I'm pretty sure that feature is by design.

    It is, my F80 (same camera, european model) does it as well.

    Hey, you still get more frames than you're supposed to!

    As we say in the computer world -- "that's not a bug, it's a feature!"
    Thanks for all your responses. I guess I won't bother dragging it down to the photo repair guy.
