“What’s the best 35mm film camera for street photography?”
People often ask, "What's the best 35mm film camera for street photography?" While there isn't any one correct answer to this question, I can offer my experience with the various cameras that I have used over the years. In this short video I give a review of the following cameras:
Nikon FM - You can still purchase a new Nikon FM-10 35mm SLR Camera with 35-70mm f/3.5-4.8 Zoom Lens!
Nikon F-2 - The Nikon F2 is a professional level, interchangeable lens, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera.
Nikon F-100 - The Nikon F100 is a 35mm film-based single-lens reflex camera body introduced in 1999. Nikon F100 35mm SLR Camera Body. My best-pick for overall camera.
Minolta 202 - A classic fully manual film camera.
Minolta XD-11 - My best-pick for street photography.
