Hello all,

Long time never post in Clubsnap liao...glad to see all that are still around.
Just recently, my wife and her sister are going to take up photography. And I recommended them Nikon FM2n plus a AF Nikkor 50mm f1.8D to shart up with.
I dunno if I made the right choice or not? Comments anyone??

Whoa you reccommend them to start with film? Dunno how much a FM2n costs now but IMHO digital would be better for learning as you can get instant feedback. If I'm not wrong the FM is a fully manual camera so learning curve might be a little steep. Unless of course you are planning on finishing 1 roll within 1 day then it shloud be fine..

I actully reccommend starting out with a consumer digital P&S with manual functions. When you feel more comfortable then maybe move on to film or digital SLR (depending on budget)

No, I am not related to xxxger la! :sweat:
Digital camera that have manual controls is too expensive la...so my wife's sis picked up a FM2n (for $350 only) plus a 50mm lens (new $170).
It maybe tough to learn with a fully manual camera but I think its fun and also best of all, Nikon FM2n would last you for many many years to come. :lovegrin:

yes quite true :) film bodies do seem to have much longer life spans... actualy for about $520 there shloud be 1 or 2 conumer digicams what have manual control.. but like you said those wont last that long and a fully manual one makes you appreciate it more..
