    After giving up on using digital cameras, I found my dads old N2000 he has had most of my life (he started using digitals, and hasnt touched in it 5 or 6 years at least).

    He had the original lense, as well as a sigma 72-220mm telephoto lense.

    I just had a few questions. If anyone is familiar with the camera.

    1. right next to the exposure dial, there is a small button and a sprung switch labeled R (push the switch, and you can depress the button), but I have no idea what it does.
    2. The exposure dial, what do the A (green box around it), P, and P-HI (both with orange boxes) settings do? About the only thing I could tell, is the light sensor lights inside the viewer no longer show when in any of these three settings, as well as the B setting).
    3. The timer button has a small switch around it, and it seems the light sensor does not work if this is switched (towards the lense).

    Thanks for the info, I am going to try and use up a few rolls figuring out the basic settings. I was out with a friend of mine tonight taking some random photos, and I didn't even notice there was no film in the camera (woops). Most of the pictures would have sucked anyway I'm sure. But now that it's loaded, we are good to go. I am going to try and get a DSLR for christmas, but we will get to that later :x: (I can only hope at least).

    until i get the money for a digital SLR, i have been disappointed with normal digi cams in the past year or so.

    seems the idea that higher MP rating = better camera has taken over the necessary improments in image quality, color accuracy, etc

    ive got a 2mp nikon coolpix, which did a GREAT job of taking quick snaps, automatically setting itself up for any kind of picture, and my brother just got a sony T-33 5mph, and on that thing, sure it can create a huge picture, but unless you hold the camera PERFECTLY still, the shots are out of focus. that and settings are extremely limit for a $300+ camera.
     
  5. I'll sell you my 8mp sony :eek3:
