    Newbie, loving every minute just bought an N90s and F5

    I shot my first roll of film with my F5 and am BLOWN away ! I started with a D70 years ago--improved my skills and moved up to D90...I'm still learning.

    Moving to film has changed the way I shoot and my photography is improving greatly. This F5 is taking amazing pictures.

    I think many that came from film to digital might not have a need to go backwards ( all the pros at my shop laugh at me for my new fould love of film)...But for those of us that started with gigital, a move back to film is a GREAT move. I think if you never try it, your missing something very important.

    Alone?

    You are among hundreds of active film users here on APUG. Hardly alone.... I do both digital and film. But for my personal stuff and what matters, I tend to shoot B&W film and process it myself. Spend hours and hours and days and weeks in darkroom for just one image.... There's something different about hand-crafted prints.

    Welcome to APUG to both of you from Central Florida... land of alligators.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Yes, the F5 is an amazing camera. I thought it's plethora of features would overwhelm me-trigger ADHD or something-but no! There is something intuitive about using it. The one thing I haven't mastered, yet, are the two dials: which one is for aperture and which for shutter speed? Do I go left to increase, or right? I eventually get there

    Nice to have another film shooter! but why did you jump to an F5? Yes it offers many features, but it does not benefit a beginner to use such a camera imho, and the price point is also very high still. The N90s on the other hand is a very good choice for someone starting out, it offers pretty much all the pro features minus continuous speed and build robustness and a few other non-critical doodads. I would suggest grabbing the manual for your cameras either in print or online.

    I went with the f5 as I find many of it features similar to my d90. For example aperture priority and manual mode are very similar on both. I know my way around the Nikons and so far the f5 and n90s seem very similar to the digitals.

    To the guy above one dial controls shutter speed and the other controls aperture. (just like the d90).

    I also like the way the f5 feels in my hand . If I could go back I could go back I might try an f100. (at $250 excellent condition the f5 was hard to pass up.

    You have two of my favorite Nikon electronic cameras. My all time fav was the F2.
