My first film camera

I bought my first film camera! The inspiration from Xavi’s pictures, trying a Hasselblad from my friend Sara and CaDs who tempted me until the end blended my digital heart.

I end up buying this Kenko camera, it is a special edition by Map Camera similar to the Kenko KF-2N. It is a extremely simple camera that works almost with any Nikon lens.

This is the special edition box.

I’ve been trying it with my 50mm F1.2 and iso400 / iso3200 films. These are some of the first results I got, what do you think?

    Great shots!

    Did you consider a used Nikon body? Like an FM-2 or F3? Lots of great accessories for some of the older Nikons.

    Thanks! Yes, I was thinking to get an FM-3 but I will start with this simple camera to learn and then jump to other models.

    Beautiful photos! Digital technology has advanced so much, but it still cannot do what film can do. Greater depth and texture, the grain adds a velvety quality. Especially lovely in the rain.

    Over 30 million Nikon lenses have been produced so there is plenty of choice second hand.

    I have a lovely setup with a Nikon FM I bought when I was 18 (31 years ago!) it still works fine having been serviced a couple of time.

    @RMilner My idea was to get and FM3a but I end up with this Kenko, very similar 🙂
