Great shot. I think I can actually make out germs, the resolution is so good.

oh...it's a little heavy with the vertical grip...but you know you have a substantial camera in your hands...thats for sure.

Default Nikon Film

I adopted Lin's Highschool yearbook staff camera. Nikon EM with a 28-80 lense on it most of the time. I have the original flash and the autowinder for it too. "It was the smallest and cheapest SLR ever made by Nippon Kogaku."

It is smaller than an F body Nikon and has fewer things to mess with, but shares lenses with the F body cameras. It has proven very durable and is often described as the camera most likely found banging around in the boot of a car. (ours happens to be in Lin's Audi's trunk right now!)

Ours works perfectly. And, It has a full mechanical mode (1/90th) so it is EMP (or dead battery) resistant.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_EM

The camera was styled by none other than Giorgetto Giugiaro. Same guy that designed the Subaru SVX, the Delorean, and The Toyota Lexus GS.

You should get the miniature digital version of the M3 to make your collection complete!

Wow. Great stuff. Nikon for about 25 years now. Put two shutters in an old FM2. Then did the same in an N90. Got that the first year they came out. Now I playing with a D90. Got lots of good lenses. 200f4macro, 60f2.8AFmacro, 20-35f2.8AF, 35-70f2.8AF, 80-200f2.8AF, 300f4AF, 24-120f3.5-5.6AF-D, 18-105f3.5-5.6AF-VR, 500f4P, Bunch of manual lenses also. I learned along time ago that the only the film or sensor sees is glass. Spend your money on glass, good glass. The rest is just a box with a door in it that's dark inside.

I've attended many seminars from the likes of John Gerlach, Rod Planck, George Lepp, Dewitt Jones, Art Wolfe, John Fielder, forgot some of them. Read many books, many magazines. Have thousands of prints and slides. All this learned me to shoot good the first time or there abouts.

So now that this digital stuff is vogue I have a problem. The computer. I can shoot well from all the photo skills I have learned. I firmly believe do it right the first time, in the camera. But I don't have the comfort with the computer side of it.

So If I can get help with the computer I will help with the rest. I love to teach this stuff.

Sony Cybershot family here

After years of lugging around a bigger camera on vacations and such I got tired of it...Simple point and shoot for me now - seems to work just fine but it will definitely keep me out of the guy camera club
