'Full Frame' Photography!
One of the best ways to get into 'full frame' photography, without breaking
the bank, is
the purchase of a 'second hand' 35mm 'film' SLR camera and some compact manual focus
I have used various 'film' cameras for years and one of the best
is the Nikon FM3a SLR with some very nice Nikon
AI-s lenses. I purchased one in 2009 and I thoroughly enjoy it.
As I have written before, I get 'Jessops' in the UK to develop and scan
my negatives. I can still post process the scanned jpegs using computer
is a relatively new camera by 'second hand' standards and it
can still be sold on with very little loss of money.
There are other
options, Canon, Pentax and Olympus all made excellent SLR
'film' cameras and they are also available on the second hand market.
I know that Kodak Ektar 100 and Portra 400 are the best colour films and
they provide an excellent 'dynamic range' with a great deal of
flexibility for exposure.
There are very few other 'second hand' routes into 35mm full frame photography,
perhaps a second hand Canon 5D MK1 DSLR as the digital route would prove
the least expensive?
