shall I try to sell my trusty nikon f 60 my old nytech compact
digital and my sony digital camcorder to raise money for a nos
eos 30?(NOT digital!) I know I will get peanuts for a used film
body,a12 year old compact and an SD camcorder, but really the f60
is nothing to write home about, and the other 2 see very little
use as everyone is using their phones now.hes giving me the eos
300 for 300 euros with a usm lens and probably he will accept
credit.he-the guy I bought my f60 from and he will stock slide
film again as i bought all his old stock.the eos 30 was the best
st its category with the famous eye focus.

I hate replying to myself but here goes:I got thd eos 30 NOS as
mentioned 300 euros with credit kit lens24-90 EF USM body made in
japan lens in taiwan.I was longing for an enthusiast film camera
since `85 when my aunt and her family came from Canada with the
famous Minolta maxxum 7000, the first auto focus slr ever.she
brought me a freedom ii compact also autofocus.I shot half a
slide film nowthe canon is loaded with tmax 400 unfortunately
slide film can only be processed in athens.so probably i will
process the tmax sooner.the f60 was loaded with the velvia and i
wanted to putthe velvia in the canon but how? No darkroom no tool
to pull the filmleader from the canister ( the f60 alwayz rewinds
the filmleader jnthe canister) so after some thinkjng i took a
steel cable tie bend its end and after some efforts took the
film leader out! But how to advance the film past thelast
without double exposure? i put the canon allin manualandtook
the shots with 2 black tshirts on the lens! There was no lens cap
or batteries in the box the camera came with, probably they
wereused elsewhere by the shop staff.
