I found an N90 (Also know as an F90x). Even my first roll produced pretty good shots. I didn't realise this at first though, as the scanning done by the lab that did the processing was diabolical.

Just get them in glass mounts now, and do them myself.

i use a set of davis and sanford 10ft lighting stands, but i have also used a cheap tripod (

) for lighting. the difference is with lighting stands you can get up higher so you can do hair lights, etc.

Just went to best buy. The only camera they had that would even power on was a d5100. It wouldn't allow me to set af on, but the aperture and metering both worked. I guess the camera isn't compatible? How can I tell the AF types apart?


EDIT: I found a little screw that seems to be coupled to the lens's autofocus. Well, I guess that answers my question.

im not sure what mount it is. i dont know the other types of mounts, i can go back and check. they wouldnt give me a price yet only because they just got it and it hasnt been priced yet. i think they didnt want me to rip them off because i went into the store and went straight to the photo stuff. they have a ton of old film gear none of the glass seemed worth bragging about mostly slow zooms. they had a weird lens i might go back and check again tomorrow. it was a JC Penny brand lens that was a 135 f2.8 ill have to double check but i know it was 135mm and JC penny which is a department store in the south.

i might go back and get that JC Penny 135mm just out of curiosity.

I have a feeling that soon I will be purchasing a film scanner. My father gave me this old Pentax MX for free today with 3 lenses. I'm just waiting to use up this roll of B&W in the N70 and I will head off to the lab to get some prints made and see how they turned out! I'm lucky. I've got at least a couple reputable camera shops around for developing. none of this ritz camera or walmart bs

look on front ring, if it says maxxum or dyxum or alpha then thats a 100 dollar lens and i would say flip it on ebay. if it says rokkor then its a 10 bucks lens, its a pretty hard lens to convert since you need to file down the mount to remount.

JC penny makes some decent lenses, i believe they are rebranded honeywell(pentax) lenses. might be worth looking if its m42.
