Anyone got any tips/places to buy second hand film SLRs? I'm looking for a Nikon FE or a Canon AE-1.
Have a look at rangefinders as well. There are some great deals here too.
Yashica Lynx 5000 35mm film Rangefinder Camera. items in life thru a lens photography store on eBay!
If you're interested in taking a step into 120 film this would be a decent starter camera.
I haven't priced them in a while but it looks pretty on the level. Pity film processing is so fucking expensive though.
Do you have access to a dark room Jonah ?
Anything Russian. Fed especially. Basically Russians don't give two fucks about patents held by western companies. So the Fed is the Russian copy of the Leica. They're great and about one hundredth the price of a Leica. The lenses aren't quite Karl Zeiss standard but I think you can get an adaptor ring to mount them, if you want to spend the cash on a Leica lens. Over all the cameras are excellent.Any particular rangefinders you'd recommend?
I do. I just finished a darkroom course, so am excited to get going, as long as I don't make a massive balls of it and turn my finances into a large mess of unholy nothing. I also have a lot of room in my house, so thought about trying to develop from home.
Will have a look at those cameras! They all seem to be in decent condition from that shop!
Unfortunately no I can't. Mine came as a set I think you can get old Leica lenses and if so anything by Karl Zeiss. But price wise you could be talking about anything from a fiver on up to hundreds given the fact that these are essentially collectors items. So thread carefully.Looks like Pete's auto embedding is acting up again.
Can you recommend a cheap enough lens to go along with one of those Fed-4 cameras? Think I shall get on this train.
Grand for Irish water fuck them but not great for your internal pipes. The major problem is the gradual build up of silver in your pipes. which would cause blockages.Down the drain. Let Irish water deal with it.
