I missed out on the 35mm film era altogether and would like to try my hand at it. What’s a good but inexpensive Nikon film SLR? Jim Handcock, via email
You can go all the way back to Nikon FE and FM models, but these retro chic models are often expensive to buy and lack autofocus. The classic F501 (N2020 for the Americanmarket) was Nikon’s first SLR to feature autofocus, and is a bargain secondhand buy.
