EDIT: As to why I'm thinking this, I've decided that I hate the stock B screen in the 2020. I can get a J screen for it, but I'd prefer to find a K screen. Also, no depth of field preview (something I'm starting to realize is very useful on film), and I have to spend money for one of the fancy 2-pin Nikon cable releases for hands-free shooting. For the price of a screen and shutter release, I'm halfway to the FE...

I'm not sure that the FE is an upgrade from the N2020. The F3 however... great camera.

I'm not a mean drunk, I'm probably more of a d-bag when I'm sober.

If you take issue with anything i've said then perhaps you might contact me to discuss it rather than call me names elsewhere ( I doubt you'd call me names to my face, why do it on the internet? )

I explained my actions on the thread. I perceived that an individual was being extremely dismissive of someone else's work whilst not showing any merit in their own. I was hoping to remind people to be more considerate and objective.
I don't recall having any issue with you personally and after explaining my position I apologised.

As for 'popping up' I've been away a while but I'm registered here a while and reading much longer. The thread is open. I believe that I have as much right to post in there as any other.

If you have any concerns with my behaviour then please feel free to take it up with me personally. I'm a reasonable individual. Don't call me names, that's just childish and as I mentioned. I doubt you would do it to me in person.

regards.

Yeah, did a little more looking, and came to the same conclusion. Now I'm thinking FE2, FM2, or FA. FE2 is most likely, as it's ridiculously cheap these days and is probably more likely to have the speeds working properly over the FM2.

F3 is definitely a sweet camera, but I'm thinking it's probably a little heavier than I'd want, plus the 1/60 X-sync is rather meh.

6x7 metered finder is really wonky, but its huge with the DK17M. I used it all day (sorta) and then went back to the 5DII for the OCN Fifty, I thought the 5DII was like broken.

The 6x7 has a surprisingly small viewfinder. Its smaller than an FM2n's.

I feel like I shouldn't crosspost, so I will leave this here.

Missed focus by a few cm and exposure by half a stop. Also I developed the Ektar too long, I guess 2:30 does ISO 50 though. I'll try 1:35 next time. Shooting at EI25.

Holy crap it was sunny today in Cleveland... Had to shoot a bunch of rolls for my class, and in order to get (hopefully) a good range of exposures I was shooting my Delta 100 at ISO 50. I needed to get low depth of field for some shots and deep depth of field for others, so at ISO 100 I was maxing out at f/4.

On a good note, though, I finally understand the Sunny f/16 rule. It was really bright, I could see my shadow clearly, and at f/16 my meter was reading in between 1/30 and 1/60. This is so useful...
