    I bought another Nikon N2000....

    I came across a new listing on eBay for this camera with the AIS 50mm f/1.8 pancake version for $40 and I just couldn't say no. The camera was untested but the photos looked good, just was dusty. When I got it, it was in better shape that I expected. Not a mark on the camera, I don't think it...

    My film drawer

    I figured I should take care of my working film cameras instead of them sitting on my desk collection dust when I'm not using them haha. The only other film camera that isn't pictured is my Yashica FR-II that I am currently shooting with and testing.

    Hello out there!

    Hey everyone! I'm April and I'm from Texas. My dad was big on photography so I grew up with a lot of his little Kodak hawkeye and instamatic cameras. As I got older I had a few newer point and shoots as well. I always wanted something that I could do more with and my dad for as long as I can...

    What converter should I buy for this Spiratone lens?

    So I recently bought an old lens for quite cheap at a thrift store (the specs on the sides say "Spiratone 1:5.6 f=300mm Mirror Lens No.8300968 ø72 Minitel-S Plura-Coat"), and it appears to be built for SLR cameras rather than my Canon Rebel. I've done some research and it appears that a t-ring...

    Hi everyone! I have a Canon 1000FN that has been functioning perfectly for the 6/7 years I have had it (it was a hand-me-down to begin with).

    Timestamp on my SLR?

    I just found my old Promaster 2000PK Super Manual with a Promaster Spectrum 7 lens. I haven't used it in forever, but there is still film in it. I put down the hobby of photography originally because I was too young to get everything out of it, so I told myself I would wait til I was older and...

    Hey all, I just recently found a Minolta (St si Maxxum) film camera, and shot a roll with it. All of my shots turned out black with white streaks through them. I know this could be a problem with light coming in through the camera somewhere or something with the mirror, but either way as of...

    Looking for a new (old) camera for Landscapes and Travel

    Hi everyone, I've been putting a lot of thought into buying a new camera over the past couple of months. Currently I own a Canon 60D which serves me well, but its bulkiness and weight make it a pain to bring along on trips, especially when hiking. I also have access to film SLRs that I use...
