[Official] OCN Camera Thread - Page 679

post #6781 of 29548
Today I went shopping for a cheap 35mm P&S, something more compact than my pentax that I could lug around on random bike runs or whatever events do not mandate a bigger camera.

I tried a thrift store... but I got nothing out of my trip if not wierd looks from young, hot employees (yeah that's right babe, I own an iPhone and I shop thrift stores, that's how much of a hipster I am).

I then called a place I though was a photo store but turned out to be a pro photographer. I asked him for some film cameras... he told me he had tons of "worthless film cameras". He went on and on about how he had always wanted to get rid of them but nobody ever wanted to buy film stuff, and rambled on how everything that's film depreciated something insane. I asked him to meet up.

I got there, and he whipped out the merch. My jaw promptly made contact with the floor.
  • 3x Nikon F4, each with MB-21 battery grip
  • Nikon F5
  • Nikon F100 with matching battery grip as well.
  • Olympus 35SPn (which apparently is rare as foxtrot uniform charlie kilo)
  • Full Pentax 645 outfit with a 2.8 zoom lens he kept that one far away so I couldn't salivate on it.

We talked a bit and got down to business, I offered (a certain number of Spartan warriors)$ in cold, hard, Canadian currency for 2x F4, the F100 and the Oly, and he immediately said yes.

So here it is:



For OCN, and OCN ONLY!, I am willing to let the F4's go for 275$ with shipping anywhere in Canada and ConUS.

The F100 and the Oly will stay forever close to my heart.

I haven't tested the cameras yet since I don't have an FX lens, but I will be doing so tomorrow. PM me if you want one of the other cameras he has... The Pentax he really didn't really sound like he wanted to get rid of it... but with a little bit of work and a good (by his standards) price, I'm pretty sure we can pry it out of his hands.

Hey guys, my mother's friend has a Nikon FE with a 50mm 1.8 and a Tamron 70-210mm f/3.8. Is this camera any good? I could basicly get it for free.
Also, would the Tamron be adaptable to 7D? Thanks

Nothing amazing but it's not bad.

And both the 50mm f/1.8 and 70-210mm f/3.8 can be used. Just get a F to EF adapter.

  • 3x Nikon F4, each with MB-21 battery grip
  • Nikon F5
  • Nikon F100 with matching battery grip as well.
  • Olympus 35SPn (which apparently is rare as foxtrot uniform charlie kilo)
  • Full Pentax 645 outfit with a 2.8 zoom lens he kept that one far away so I couldn't salivate on it.

We talked a bit and got down to business, I offered (a certain number of Spartan warriors)$ in cold, hard, Canadian currency for 2x F4, the F100 and the Oly, and he immediately said yes.

So here it is:



For OCN, and OCN ONLY!, I am willing to let the F4's go for 275$ with shipping anywhere in Canada and ConUS.

The F100 and the Oly will stay forever close to my heart.

I haven't tested the cameras yet since I don't have an FX lens, but I will be doing so tomorrow. PM me if you want one of the other cameras he has... The Pentax he really didn't really sound like he wanted to get rid of it... but with a little bit of work and a good (by his standards) price, I'm pretty sure we can pry it out of his hands.
Must...Practice...Self...Control...

In all honesty, as much as I'd love a film camera, it really isn't a viable option for me right now. Considering I'm renting apartments for college (and won't own until at least 7 more years after I'm done with Med/Grad school), I won't have a darkroom up anytime soon. I really do miss film photography though, and honestly wish I could jump on this

Good thanks for the advice. I like the feeling of that camera, everything manual, fun. I don't have anything over 50mm at the moment so the 70-210 will be better than nothing, it's brand new, couldn't believe it when I inspected it. It was used one time then put in a box for like 20 some years.
Will the focus assist work with an adapter?

Thanks
