For the longest time i had always wanted to take up the hobby of photography. I have always wanted to take breathtaking pictures! pictures i could be proud of, but which route should i take? Digital or 35mm? I wanted to take traditional pictures on film so i could get the best possible photography experience this is why I chose the 35mm route and the camera i purchased to get me on my way with my new hobby was the Nikon N55 SLR camera. I have had this camera for a few months now and decided that now as the time to post my opinions on this neat little camera!<br><br>I purchased my N55 and It came with the camera body itself, a 28mm - 80mm zoom lens, two cr2 batteries, a lanyard and some very good hints and tips books from Nikon on how to get the most from this camera. I also purchased another zoom lens 70 - 300mm and a camera bag so i could protect my latest purchase. When you first take the camera out of the box and attach the lens, which is very easy to do, (simply put the back of the lens into the camera and turn anti-clockwise until it clicks) the camera looks complicated compared to the normal easy to use point and shoot cameras that I had been used to in the past., but do not let this fool you, this is one of the easiest cameras to use. The first thing you notice when you pick up the camera is how comfortable it feels in your hands. It is very well designed, I have very large hands and I have no problems handling this small SLR camera.<br><br>On the top right hand side of the camera you will see a large easy to read lcd display. The lcd display tells you everything you need to know about the current set up of your camera including what aperture the lens is currently set to and what speed the shutter will operate at when you take your picture. It also displays if you have the flash enabled whether or not you have red eye reduction engaged and of course it also tells you how many pictures you have left on your roll of film (the counter counts backwards) and how much battery life you have remaining. On the top left hand side of the camera you will find a dial that lets you chose the different modes the camera has to offer, these range from fully automatic operation so you can just point and shoot , right to a completely manual mode where you have to set the aperture and shutter speeds yourself.<br><br>There are other setting you can chose so you can take the best possible pictures. There is a setting for portrait pictures, when selected the camera will change the settings so that the person or object you focus on will be very clear and very sharp, but the background will be slightly blurred so the main object stands out! I have taken some wonderful portrait pictures using this option. There are also settings for night or low light pictures, action or sports pic<br><br>The Nikon N55 is by far, the most amazing camera I have ever owned. I am so glad that I decided to take the plunge and switch to an SLR camera. If you are in the market for a point and shoot camera or an SLR camera, the N55 is the perfect choice. You can buy this and use it as a point and shoot camera and you will be stunned by the amount of improvement there is in the quality of your prints, or if you are like me and want to start photography as a hobby, this camera will offer you most of the features found on the bigger more expensive SLR cameras that are available.Read full review

Great film camera!!
This camera takes sharp, clear pictures and when matched with my Nikkor 70-180 f/4-5.6 zoom lens it takes GREAT photos! It is lightweight and user friendly. You can put it in auto mode and use it as a point and shoot or full manual mode and use your creativity. The lens it comes with takes average photos, so that is why I am giving it a 4 out of 5 rating. Other than that I love this camera!

I love this camera and would reccomend it to all!
I first used this model from my school's and I loved it. It is easy to use and easy for a new student. I have taken some of my best shots with this model and I love it. I love how lightweight it is and how easy it is to load the film.

Great value and a great camera to learn 35mm photography with.
So to get the most $$$ out of the film you shoot with this camera take the roll to any place that will (1) Process the film SHOULD BE LESS THAN $4.00 (2) Do not have any prints made just ask them to put the roll on a CD or DVD as they will be in jpeg format should cost less than $5.00. Now you can view the pic's on your computer, print the ones you want and you can also manipulate your pics with Adobe Elements, photoshop etc..
