Been looking at these. Do they feel as nice as they look? Have a canon g10 and a Ricoh cx2 as compacts st present. Fancy the retro styling.

I think so. The camera feels pretty solid and the picture quality is very very good. The only thing I'm finding difficult to get my head around the many settings you can customise within the camera menu - it's like a SLR. My other digital cameras are like 6 years old and very basic by comparison to the Fuji. My brother uses the higher model Fuji X100 and the XT-1 SLR lookalike and he's neglected all his Nikon gear now!!

Just recently added two Nikon cameras to the collection. First one is the 70's era iconic F2 all manual camera built like a tank and the other is the 80's era F3P edition which at the time of introduction was only available to press photographers. Difference to the standard model is more robust build (titanium prism housing and body plates) and better seals to shield against the elements. Attached to it is the motordrive that allowed it to shoot 6 frames per second which was like a machine gun in it's day. Currently I still waiting in the post for a motordrive for the F2 from the US. I used the very same model F2 back in the early 90's working for a London photo agency and remember covering a 24 hour motorcycle race south of France and having very sore shoulders afterwards. They were bleeding heavy!

I've given up on digital and gone back to 35mm and 120mm film, mostly black and white.

Where do you buy your film?

That F2 looks nice, I think I need one!
Does the Photomic head hold all the meter stuff?
