    So for the people who want to get into film photography (for fun of course) and doesnt want to dump a **** load of money on gear, This might be a good way.

    Nikon FE in mint condition (75$)
    50mm 1.8 (everybody has one!)
    Epson v500 scanner (100$)


    The only post processing done to these pictures are a little bit of contrast and dust removal since i picked up some dust when scanning the negatives.

    All these pictures where shot on AUTO shutter speed and mostly at 1.8 since i wanted to test the meetering on the camera... I am really happy with the result!

    film was kodak BW400CN


    Everything was scanned at 6400 DPI in 16bit grayscale with all advanced options OFF (Digital ICE and all the other options)
    I tried all of them....it works really well to remove grain and scanned dust but they soften the image too much for my taste

    all image were 8810X5610 +- pixel after the scan. I resized all of them at 3000PX1910+- for web usage.

    Very good results from an inexpensive scanner. Have you tried color negs or transparencies yet?

    Nikon 1.8 G, doesn't that not have an aperture ring which the FE requires? I'm thinking you're stuck with using 1.8, like it or not.

    You're right in that G lenses have no aperture ring but the 1.8 isn't a G lens. The newer 1.4 afs is.

    The 50 1.8 does have an aperture ring.

    Not yet. these where the 2 first roll with this camera. I bought 50 rolls of color film today. (Kodak Gold 200). I know they are not the most amazing film on the market but 50 roll for 40$. They are expired since July but were kept in a fridge at all time. Ill get some shot tomorrow to see whats going on with that film.
