A call for help with a personal project.

Nikon FM2 and Self Developing Film!

I would like to take a few minutes today to welcome a new addition to the family. Her name is Nikky. She is my first Nikon camera. It took a lot of research and time watching ebay auctions till I found the right one for me. But when she arrived yesterday (from Japan) we realised it was worth the wait.
