    That should be fun. I've been looking for an excuse to get to the Farmers' Market...

    The END of film cameras?

    Dear Fellow MSAers,
    I have some devastating news to share! My beloved N75 developed a glitch. When I took it to my dealer to be repaired, I was (literally) laughed at and told that film cameras have gone "bye-bye" ! The only thing I can do is send it to Nikon. IF they have the necessary parts, they will give me an estimate of what it would cost to repair it. If the repairs are too costly, they will return the camera to me, no charge.
    All this time I've worried that they would stop making film for us to use. It never occurred to me that they would discontinue film cameras! I am SO sad.

    Wow. What a good way to lose business. Sounds like it is time to find a different repair shop.

    That would be the same Nikon that still sells a couple of brand new 35mm film camera models? Right?

    I don't know who you're using, but I would find someone else. I always had good luck with Bergen County Camera - their Westwood store is only about a half hour or so from Kenilworth. If they can't fix it themselves, they will find someone who can.

    Thanks for the info but Nikon will no longer send parts to repair shops! And they are no longer making parts for the N75. When their supply runs out, my camera will no longer be repairable . Also, I understand they will probably charge more than the camera is worth to fix it. I have another N75 (I used to keep one with B&W and one with color film) that I can still use, but when that one breaks, I guess I'm done...

    Luckily there are millions of other Nikon bodies available for cheap. I don't think there is any chance of working film bodies running out, ever.

    This sounds really interesting. I am new to APUG, so can anyone shed a little light? I tried to find threads concerning this but may be I'm not looking at the right place?

    So I shoot photos that reflect the theme... and then? Upload here for all to see? Or is this supposed to be something like an incentive to shoot for oneself only?

    Well, either way this sounds interesting... I think I'll shoot a couple or so rolls!! =)

    When you upload to the gallery, choose the monthly shooting assignment sub-gallery and post a link to the image here too. This seems to be the best way.

    This is my post for the assignment.

    It's from my archive: Fish market in the covered market of Santiago del Chile, end of February 1999. What I like of this picture is that everybody is looking everywhere else with the exception of the boy in the centre of the picture, who is looking straight at the camera (his expression is probably not caught in the low-resolution attachment).
