  1. #1

    Default looking for film slr.

    im looking for a film slr.
    not sure what model and hoped someone could help me.
    looking for one with the following features:

    -lightmeter with auto exposure (like LC-A), everytime i manually expose always overexpose or underexpose.
    -can set iso dial (so can double expose and stuff)
    *can choose aperture is also good

    ya. so if possible, tell me the model and stuff.
    thanks so much!
    hope i can buy a slr soon!

    are you looking for those MF SLR's or AF?...

    for MF, Canon AE-1P & F1 or Nikon FM2N & FM3A are quite popular & nice...

    for AF, Canon EOS 1V or Nikon F6 are the top of the line during their era, & you can use the latest lenses (from their respective mounts) on these SLRs...

    TS is looking from film SLR. He probably doesn't know what is the difference between a rangefinder and SLR. Leica R3 R5 are rangefinders, not SLRs.

    Btw there's a proper Buy and Sell in this forum.

    They are actually SLRs.

    I will recommend Nikon EM, cute, aperture priority and has everything you asked for
    However there will be no Depth of Field preview button and manual exposure is take away from you.

    My bad, thanks for correcting. Somehow the mind was on the M-series.

    Other than the Nikon EM, the FE is also a good budget SLR, with DOF preview, multi-exposure, and full manual control in addition to aperture priority.

    Why don't you post a WTB ad in BnS? People here can recommend you stuff, but you have to find the stuff too, since film slrs are no longer selling new.
