its a very affordable, basic, compact, reliable camera. i would pick that up or an olympus om-1 in a heartbeat if the price is right.

OM-1/OM-1n is amazing, but a little funny since the controls are all on the lens mount. Oddly enough, a Canon AE-1 is around the same price, a little more advanced, and doesn't use a stupid mercury battery. Since FD lenses aren't that great for modern DSLR use, they're cheaper than the Oly lenses, too.

With the 4/3rds gaining ground, FD lenses are starting to go up a bit, so buy now! lol.

I read it somewhere freestylephoto's Arista Premium 400 is just a private lable Tri-X and can be had for $1.99 a roll. Problem is there is a minimum purchase of $25. That's 24 rolls of Tri-X.

It's the same film stock. Prices have gone up though. Last batch of 10 I bought was around 2.20 a roll for 36exp rolls. It went up again in recent months.

Actually that would be about 13 rolls (12.5) of film but still. If you take care of it that stuff should last a long time.

EDIT: I just checked their site. A roll of Arista Premium B&W 400 ISO 35mm x 24 exp is $2.69 so you wouldn't have to buy as many to reach their $25 minimum.

Their film is good stuff I'm glad it was suggested to you. For the foreseeable future I'll likely only be buying film from them.

I have one. It was my first camera. It's an awesome fully manual camera. Very capable in the right hands. Sears made a copy cat version which I also own. It's packed away so I can't remember the model number of the Sears camera but they were essentially identical.

I will buy some rolls in the future. Probably with more developing chemicals as well.

Dwayne's in Parsons, Kansas. They used to be affiliated with MPIX (and still might).


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Thank you If this film does not come out no big loss.

I've got about 9 rolls on my bed excluding the E-6 roll that need to be developed most go back to like 7 years ago.. I still can't find my T400/CN roll unless I had that developed... in that case I think I did..

I've gotta send my Nikon FE out for service and I might buy some Neopan to shoot with.. one of these days I'm going to try and do my own B&W developing.. nothing like the smell of the developer.

Looong time ago in HS I got to work with a enlarger was the fixer the one that smelled like vinegar?

I figure doing B&W can be done in the bathroom with ease right?

That's acetic acid in the stop bath.

Ah ok I was going to say that but it's been so long lol, I was going to buy some Neopan this coming week what are you using to develop?

I wished I picked up those tank heaters from what I remember the temp needs to be around 100F or so?

If it's low to mid contrast, I use Perceptol at 1+2 at 72F for 16 min. If it's high contrast, I use 510 Pyro at 1+50 at 70F for 8 min. I am using XTOL right now, but have not processed any Neopan 400 with it yet.

No, most B&W is in the 68-72F range. You're thinking about color films, which are typically in the 100-102F range. See this link for the starting points:

I also suggest you go to your local library and check out a book on film development.

DALE LABS right here in Hollywood Florida. Great guys and very good service. I used to be in their office 3-5 times per month when I was shooting with my EOS 3.
