    I assume the reason you don't have DX-coded cassettes is that you're loading your own cassettes from bulk film, as I do. I think you can buy DX coded cassettes. I know I've seen them advertised somewhere, probably Freestyle. For my F65, which also needs a DX-code to set the ISO, I break down and buy film locally. In my experience the non-bulk film is always DX coded.

    I have some Efke KB25 that is conveniently packaged in non DX coded cassettes, and it is fresh, expires 2-2012. I was surprised.

    Also I just found six Kalt DX ISO 400 coded film cassettes. If you want them there yours for the cost of postage.

    Just got back from my trip to Disney with a bunch of screaming kids and the N75 and a Rollei 35. I'll admit the N75 was way easier to use and I shot 6 rolls of TMY with the N75 and only a half of a roll with the Rollei 35. I had no problem leaving the camera lying around briefly while tending to the kids. At the airport I just sent the camera and film through the x-ray scanner--no hassle.

    While at the Disney park I did take notes on what the tourists were using. It seems about 20% of tourists were using DSLRs and the most popular DSLR was Nikon, followed by Canon. These were easily identified by the self-promoting neck-straps. 70% of the tourists were using the non-viewfinder cameras and the rest were using some type of cellphone. I saw no medium format cameras and no classic 35mm SLRs or rangefinders.

    I was also amazed that people would carry these massive modern Nikon and Canon zoom lenses on the higher level DSLRs.

    I think I did well with the N75, rather than the F100 in terms of weight. I used one hand on the camera and had it to my eye for probably 25% of the time I was there.

    I shot the TMY at "-1.5" on the exposure compensator (base exposure ISO 100) and will give feedback as to how that worked out when I process the film.

    I have had an N75 since they were new and I picked up a spare on ebay for a lot less than I paid for the new one. I like the fast autofocus and matrix metering and I also have the MB-18 so I can run them on AA batteries. I have an N80 also and it has spot metering and ISO overide of the DX. You can also set the ISO on the N80 without DX. I wish the N75 was still available instead of the FM10.

    N75 Spot Metering

    The N75 DOES offer spot metering, but it's a custom function set on its internal menu, not something you can set with a button on the body (like most other cameras).

    I pick one up 2yrs ago new in the box for $50. It was local so I didn't have to pay shipping. The guy had a 50mm 1.8 lens for $60 so I took that also. My wife really liked it and keeps stealing it on me.

    I bought one off eBay for about $15 last year. I hadn't used it a lot until last weekend, when I attached a 50mm f/1.8 lens from my d*****l Nikon. I shot a roll of Kodak Gold 200, which I had developed and scanned at the local drugstore. I was generally pleased with the results. For some reason, I couldn't get my monster SB-900 flash to work on it (even though it's supposed to be compatible), but the built-in flash was adeqate for the venue.

    And, FYI, I believe it will sense DX cartridges from ISO 100-3200.

    The N75 I don't think supports i-TTL.... the SB-900 isn't backwards compatible, you need a 600 or 800 for that.
