I want to play with a film camera for a bit, found Nikon F-301. To be honest I do not understand what it is, my friend who owns it have never used it himself. How good is it, how accurate is the meter and shutters?
My previous film camera was an ancient mechanical Pentax Spotmatic, but is is almost dead now. I have been using only digital cameras for some 4 years now, so that's nostalgia for manual focus, good viewfinder and a feeling of real solid film instead of digital photos that are nowhere.
So, the main question is, is F-301 worth the trouble? Is it any good? Can I shoot positive film with it, and is it necessary to use a light meter?
