If you want a Nikon film body that has fast AF and a shutter that
doesn't sound like the doors opening on the old Star Trek, get
something OTHER than the N80. I have one, in addition to an F5,
and the N80 is not enjoyable once you're used to actual fast
focusing on another camera. Go for a used F100 instead.

After having 8mm film reels digitally archived, film looks very grainy/ filled with static. Is this digital-looking noise normal? + more 8mm film questions Phil Edry Digital Photography 11 10-10-2004 11:57 PM
