The N75 is a neat little camera, it was an upper end amateur camera than lacked several features found on the N80:
- Only had Automatic DX coding of film, no Manual overide
- Used an IR remote release vs. a cable or plunger type release
- Slightly smaller viewfinder
- Lower flash sync 1/90 sec vs. 1/125 sec (N80)
- Lower max shutter speed (1/2000s vs 1/4000s - one stop)
- No on-demand grid lines

Neither will meter with AI or AI-S Manual Focus lenses.

As far as use, I have not used one, I had an N80 and purchased an F100 after that one died. Before the N80 I had the lack sheep of Nikon's lineup, the N70 - such a funky user interface. I have used my B-I-L N65, great basic fundamental camera capable of great shots.

If you are looking for an inexpensive film camera, I think that you will be well served with the N75 and a good AF lens. The 28-80 were pretty good, I liked the 28-105 for its reach and image quality. Pair it with a 35 f/2 or a 50mm f/1.8 and you'll have a great low light kit.
