is Nikon F80 suitable for a newbie? found one going for around $200 with the 28-80 lens, no flash. cheap or not? :sweat:

Is it from CS member the sale ? You can check out Peninsula Shopping Centre
Camera Workshop lots of film cameras for sale. You'll be spoiled for choices.

No point crying over spilt milk; there are lots of film cameras out there that are cheap, and you won't be restricted because you already have an army of lenses from one system. Have a look around the Peninsula area, you might find something you like for a bargain.

And yes, plenty of us still shoot film :)

there are many film users here, however, not everyone uses f80

if you think it is good it will be fine. there are always compromises. who cares what other people think?

precautions? you just need common sense. :)
