I was looking for an Nikon FM2n (with a flash synchronization of 1/250), but it seems so hard to find even in second shops nowadays.
Finally, a chain of photo shop cum studio in Manila changed their studio cameras to a DSLR. (I heard they are getting a Canon hehehe). I just saw rows of Nikon FM3As with a Sigma 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 HF Macro being sold. They are selling it for AUD 175.00, I got one and am using it as a fall back camera to my Nikon D40. Now, I'm searching for AF-D lenses for this body here in second hand shops in Brisbane.
Film (and mechanical manual) cameras are simple to operate. It just takes four steps: focus, set aperture, set shutter speed, and press the shutter! And no one can beat the view of their viewfinders - its big and bright!
