    don't open the back until you have wound completely, and preferably in 'subdued light'

    The eos-1 is a way beastlier camera, but not as much of a classic :o

    Being able to use EF mount lenses that are also compatible with my DSLR is >*

    I have a canon ae-1 setup, I would love a nikon slr to use my lenses but I only have a 50 and 35 for ff :/ I already have that for my canon flim setup so its not worth it

    Yeah, nobody bid on it because "the meter seems to be off". I dunno what that means but for $20 it's worth finding out.

    ahh my meter broke on my ae-1, I had it fixed :big grin: It is tough to shoot in manual, with manual everything, and not be able to atleast meter the light and see how the exposure will be

    1.8 Guest

    Well if it's off by a certain amount I was just going to adjust the exposure bias. For how much I paid I guess I could send it somewhere to have it fixed maybe.

    Worst case scenario, take the focus screen and put it in your dslr :big grin: I am tempted to try that sometime, it seems way sketchy though

    Worst case scenario is not being able to compensate for the "off" meter and being forced to shoot in M :hs:

    Yeah, well I have 2 other canon film slr's so I'm going to line them up and see what the meter on the eos-1 is up to.

    I have to say that developing B&W film was one of the most fun & interesting photography classes I've ever taken. Loading the film onto the reel was always a bitch though. In the beginning, it was tough to get a complete roll without wrinkles, even when you thought you had it right. I later learned that we were using ancient fucking reels and the newer plastic ones are MUCH easier to load! Hopefully you won't be with a bunch of idiots who fuck up the chemicals, the smaller the class the better.

    Here's a basic refresher...

    Funny story, this being my last semester of college and I'm totally finished with everything and have an open schedule... I also signed up for BEGINNING photography in addition to advanced :bowrofl: Anyway the prof in this class sackrides the K1000 like it's going out of style.

    BTW both professors were pissed but they're going to let me do it :bowdown:
