Old School Cameras are the best school
Review of Olympus OM-10 by dbuk2000

Advantages: Great Quality
Disadvantages: Little dated

This is one of those classic cameras, and probably more of an antique in this day and age with all the digital cameras. However it was the first camera I received and a cast off from my Dad, and the start of a passion in photography for myself. I have d ... Read review

Making the Most Out of Every Photo (Film Camera Review)
Review of Pentax K1000 by mc_uk100

Advantages: Basic, Robust, Perfect for Beginners
Disadvantages: Basic - Lack of features may frustrate enthusiastic or professional photographers.

Introduction Technology is like fashion. Most people want to buy the latest thing to show off to their friends and to get their approval. I, on the other hand, have taken the opposite approach by going ‘retro’ and buying a film camera from Ebay. ... Read review

Best AF Film Camera for Amateurs
Review of Nikon F 80 by mc_uk100

Advantages: Ease of Use, Image Quality, Options, Shooting Modes, Compatibility
Disadvantages: Flash sync speed, Film (disadvantage for some), Developing Costs, A couple of buttons

...talking about film cameras, the Nikon F80 (also known as N80 in the states) is particularly new as it came onto the market in the year 2000. In terms of camera models, that may seem like a long time ago, but wit ... Read review

I have an F55 - mainly because I managed to buy it off someone complete with a 28-100mm for £10, I sold the lens and use my higher quality lenses purchased for my digital Nikon's on it. I bought it last year and still haven't managed to finish 1 roll of film yet - I'm being picky so as not to waste processing costs! I'm one shot off finishing the roll in my Nikon EM too. by JLRphotography

The Best I have owned- Mathew Sebastian
Review of Nikon F3 by appacheindian1

Advantages: robust! still works wonders
Disadvantages: none

I bought my first Nikon F3 in 1981 as a replacement for my excellent but ageing OM2n. I had only a few AI lenses to start with, a 28mm, 80-200 , a 2x converter and a Panagor Micro 90mm/2.8. Over the years, I have also moved from film to DSLR and own th ... Read review

Sorry, but you've not really gone into any detail about your opinion of the camera's various functions. How easy is it to load film (I'm assuming this is a film camera rather than digital)? by sandemp

As good as 35mm ever got
Review of Olympus OM 2 by dobieg

Advantages: Compact stare of the art (for 1974) still to be reckoned with
Disadvantages: Isn't digital and never will be

The Olympus OM-2 is my all-time favourite 35mm film camera body. Historically, Olympus were known for producing excellent small cameras, either in ‘compact’ full frame, or half frame format. Whereas most other SLR manufacturers were trying to make thei ... Read review

Looks like you got the last laugh BNibbles; your Canon lenses would still fit a DSLR body these days, likewise Nikon als still use the same mount by dobieg

CANON T90 -THE BEST NON DIGITAL M/F CAMERA EVER.
Review of Canon T90 by NIGELXK

Advantages: only thing it lacks is m/f ,and that adds to the fun of taking the shot.
Disadvantages: if it breaks you might as well buy another,but read that they keep going so not too worried

I read quite a few reviews before purchasing a T90 six months back ,was a hard call ,i wanted a camera i could carry as a backup that could also serve as a full frame shooter rather than spend shedloads more money on ultra wide lenses.i narrowed my choice ... Read review

OM10, the only film camera i'll use.
Review of Olympus OM-10 by joshurawrrr

Advantages: Variety of lenses, quality of photos
Disadvantages: Need of an adaptor to make manual.

I was bought this camera for my A levels, and initially i didn't like it. It seemed blocky and heavy, but that was compared to a DSLR. It didn't take me long to get to grips with the camera, and the quality of my initial shots I felt was great, and I car ... Read review

Olympus OM-10 Quality and performance way beyond it's price tag
Review of Olympus OM-10 by DJPOKI

Advantages: Olympus quality assured, truly comprehensive and versatile system
Disadvantages: Rewind button is fiddly. Manual adaptor is essential not optional for full control

A light and easy to use camera way more capable than the price tag suggests. The camera as standard is an Aperture Priority automatic exposure, 35mm Single lens reflex. In Aperture Priority mode the user selects the aperture and the camera selects the shu ... Read review

Olympus E-30. Still not up there with the big boys?
Review of Olympus E-30 by rabidbadger

Advantages: Fold out LCD screen, Image Stabilization, Zuiko lens quality, Picture quality, Flash options
Disadvantages: Noise in low light, Too many buttons, Badly laid out, Too many gimmicks

The E-30 is Olympus's own stepping-stone between the so-called "prosumer" models (what an awful word) and the E-3 professional SLR, being loosely comparable with the likes of the Canon EOS 50D, the Nikon D90 and the Sony Alpha A-350. It shares a lot of th ... Read review

Good, but basic, 35mm SLR
Review of Canon EOS 300 V / EOS Rebel TI by MrShemp

Advantages: light, easy to use, enough features for the amature, slr, interchangeable lens
Disadvantages: limited features

I have had this camera for about 3 years now and its still a delight to shoot with, its nice and simple to use and is nice and light. It has an optional strap but its so light so it never feels like a chore carry it. You can attatch a great range of le ... Read review

Excellent Bag of tricks
Review of Nikon F 80 by AJUK

Advantages: durable, reliable, big viewfinder, fast.
Disadvantages: 1/125th flash sync, does not meter with manual nikon lenses.

Like most people who have bought this camera in the last few years I bought this second hand on eBay for about £80 with a zoom lens, which I soon swapped for a 50mm standard lens. For someone like me who had only used digital cameras and manual film SLR ... Read review

Review of Olympus E-30 by JudgeIronFist

Advantages: Excellent auto-focus performance
Disadvantages: NONE!!!

Last Saturday, I purchased the E-30 from a local dealer. My old camera was a Nikon F-301, bought more than 15 years ago. Just last week, this old Nikon became faulty. I took it to Nikon's service centre to repair it, but the repair man told me it is beyon ... Read review
