A thread died for this.>>>3764390
>>3764693>A thread died for this. If you loved that dead thread so much why didn't you go and post in it faggot?
Second hand Nikon D80 and a prime lens.
>>3764719thanks this looks pretty good, I see them selling second hand around the £80 - £150 mark. But I would be willing to spend twice as much, is there anything better and more suited than this one? Also I specify the F mount because I have inherited an SLR and three lenses that use this mount
>>3764796>D700What are the lenses?
>>3764796>I have inherited an SLR and three lenses that use this mountCan you post a picture of the SLR and the lenses?Nikon lens compatibility is real tricksy. "F-mount" refers to everything from the original Nikon F from the 50s all the way up to the most modern digital SLRs, and there have been three or four fundamental changes between then and now that affect the compatibility.Most notably, if the film SLR is old enough--I.e., from before the 1970s and using similarly old lenses that haven't been modified--then the lenses won't mount properly (and might break) higher-end modern DSLRs. If they're not autofocus, they won't meter on low-end modern DSLRs. If they're autofocus, they won't autofocus on low-end modern DSLRs. Etc.So to know whether or not there's a DSLR in your price range that fits the bill, we'll need to know what your film SLR is. Post a picture of the camera and the rear mounts of the lenses you have, ideally.
>>3764796>I have inherited an SLR and three lenses that use this mount>>3764690>My budget is £300£300 will buy you a shit tonne of film and a lot more enjoyment then a DSLR
>>3764874>£300 will buy you a shit tonne of film and a lot more enjoyment then a DSLRIt'll get you about 30 rolls, which I wouldn't really consider a "shit tonne". Potential enjoyment is entirely subjective--I personally enjoy shooting film, but I wouldn't want to be limited to it.
D5600 and later VRII kit lens.It's really all you need.As for something that likely takes older lenses, find a D7000 or something with a screw-drive focus motor.>>3764840The only way you can break a Nikon DSLR with an old lens is if it's a super super old 1959-1960 lens with the thicker aperture ring, I have a Df which mounts everything but will not mount those and you can break the mount if you try to force it. Also any pre-AI lens on a consumer D3xxx or D5xxx or D80 and below is a huge no-no
>>3764891>I wouldn't really consider a "shit tonne"it's all relative to how you use it, if you snapshit film sure, but if you're considered in your approach 30 rolls could really last a while, long enough to determine if you really want to invest in the digital meme
D7000 for APS-C (half frame 24mp) or D700 (full frame 24mp) will cost you around £180 and both are quality. I've owned both and both can take older AIS lenses. You can use the remaining cash to get a nice lens
>>3764813>>3764840too lazy to post a pic but it is a Nikon F-801, and it came with a 35, 50 and a 200 prime. Only the 50 is autofocus, but I'm fine with that. >>3764874I plan on using the SLR, but tbqh I would rather use it less than a decent digital. Sorry /p/>>3764913>>3764978thank you for these suggestions bros
>>3764978The D700 goes for 180 now?Damn
>>3765428>Only the 50 is autofocusat a guess that's a 50 1.8 AF-D, pretty much the only lens you'll really need, if you want autofocus you'll need a screw drive body>>3764978>D700 (full frame 24mp)the D700 is 12MP but that's irrelevant as you really only need 6
>>3765461seriously, they're over $600aud here, i wonder what shipping is like ebay.uk here i come!
>>3764978>APS-C>half frameno lol, since when is FF 32x24?
>>3765428>too lazy to post a pic but it is a Nikon F-801, and it came with a 35, 50 and a 200 prime. Only the 50 is autofocus, but I'm fine with that.Okay, cool, that's recent enough to avoid the worst of the issues I was warning about.You will still need a body with a screw-drive autofocus motor if you want to use that 50mm, though, and ideally one that can meter with manual-focus lenses so you can use the 35 and 200. So, as others have suggested, the D700's a good choice for that. If you want something a little cheaper and a little newer, the D7000 is also good. The D7000 has a smaller sensor, but more modern features (e.g., video mode, and I think autofocus in live view) and higher resolution than the D700. But I'd still go with the D700 given the choices, 'cause full frame is pretty sweet.
>>3765461That's for faulty ones lmao
>>3764913>D5600D5200 is the last nice one, they made a tiny grip in the later ones
>>3764956>digital memeFilm is the bigger meme nowadays lol.Early digital was a meme but today it's a no brainer.
>>3765489you mean, downgrade
>>3765475>pretty much the only lens you'll really needThe 35mm f2 could be also considered an obligatory lens for it. Shame Nikon never made a full metal D version of it.
