My results have always been superb. (I, on the other hand, have always needed improvement!)
If you are interested in film photography and want to get away from digital, but don't want to risk a lot of your pictures "not turning out", this is an excellent first choice camera. If you already shoot film, already use Nikon digital, or just want the best film camera you can buy, this is also an excellent choice.
This baby has nearly all the pro features you are looking for in a camera. Built-in light meter, TTL flash, DX ISO, 1/4000 to 1 second, plus B. I usually choose the semi-automatic mode; by setting the aperture manually, then allowing the camera to set the shutter speed automatically.
As such, this camera is perfect for landscape photography. If you are like nature, and enjoy bush-walking or mountaineering, this Nikon is great. It only weighs 570g. This means that you can get away with using a light-weight tripod - if you don't mount big glass (a heavy telephoto lens). And it does not take much space. Good for travelling as well.
The only feature I sometimes miss is mirror lock-up. Without mirror lock-up, camera shake can cause problems at slower shutter speeds. But you can get around this issue by using the self-timer (causing the mirror to flip up before the shot is taken). A spot light-meter would have been nice, but you can still take spot readings by using a longer lens (or by zooming in).
The good thing about this film camera is that it provides me with the best of both worlds. I have the quality (and cheap price!) of film, the convenience of (slide) projection, but I can still scan the images into the computer if I need them digitally. And I can use the same set of lenses, should I decide to buy a digital body one day.
This is a simple to use semi-automatic camera - yet you can get find accessories for it (Nikon and third party) - including a motor-drive and flash.
Classic camera. I love it. Highly recommended.
This is a camera for photographers, not those shooting film on the weekends. Compared to moderm cameras, it is not as user friendly, it does not have a lighted viewfinder, and yes, it can be hard to operate in the dark. If you want to use a film camera in the dark, get a used Nikon N80 or some other electronic body.
This is a classic camera, which will be appreciated most by people who have used and loved the classic Nikon film cameras. I applaud Nikon for having the guts to bring this camera to market in the digital age. Bravo, and well done!
I want my Canon F-1 back.
