Quote from: jumbojak on September 07, 2019, 01:41:20 PMI'm considering a film camera. Looking at a Nikon N75 to get my feet wet in B&W film photography. It's a mostly plastic body but seems to have been well reviewed at it's release. My thinking is that a used consumer grade camera might be in better shape than a used pro camera, due to lower use and wear. Lots of people buy things like this and set them on a shelf after using them one time. Does that sound reasonable or am I off in my thinking?

Quote from: jumbojak on October 01, 2019, 03:28:31 PMIt looks like my D3200 is beginning to die. The display in the viewfinder is failing and manual composition is becoming more and more difficult. The light meter is particularly troublesome to see. So, I'm considering a new camera body and a possible switch from the SLR to mirrorless. It would be a new platform but the video options are much nicer. I've been experimenting with video lately and I think I like it.
