Our first film camera!



I and my boyfriend bought old Nikon film camera last week.
When we bought it, we soon tried put a film in it.
But we couldn't even open the back cover from where we put the film...
We read some instructions at the book store, and somehow we succeeded to put the film in it.
But,,, we put it in a wrong way. We knew that at the camera shop where we went to be developed it.
We disappointed very much...

Then we bought a new film and ask the man of camera shop to put it in our camera.
And finally, we could take some photo with it.
It's different from the photo which I take with my digital camera.
I like the photo of film camera more, but it costs...
So we decided to take with it several times a month...
Here are some my first photo, with Nikon FE(I think it's about 30 years old camera).

hey mai- how funny, I have the same camera! My dad gave it to me. I don't use it much anymore because of my small Canon Ixus, but maybe I should... It's a classic! Very good.

Hi Annie,
The same camera!? It's a little bit heavy, but a very good camera.
I like classic very much!

I found the umbrella when I walked alone. I like the scene.
Thank you!

Oooh these are lovely! I like the flower one best! I still use a film camera too, cause I like the way the photo looks more than a digital photo.

I really like the umbrella photo too. Especially the imprints from how the umbrella was laying before. Very cool!

I like the umbrella photo too. It's cool how you can see the imprint in the moss of how the umbrella used to be laying.

Hi Clare,
I think so too! But it costs more than digital camera... So I cannot use it always.
Thank you!

I didn't know the way to put the film at first also, and went to a bookstore to see the way...
