A couple of months ago the little tab on the film door broke off(see white arrow)and the door wouldn't stay closed on the N6006 I inherited from my dad. Tonight I took the part off of one of the as-is bodies I got from KEH for 2.50 each. I was worried that it wouldn't be easy to do since you have to take off the bottom plate. But it as simple-just remove 6 screws and the bottom comes right off. The door I put on looks much better than the one it replaced. I wasted a roll of color neg film to make sure film advanced and rewound properly-it's all good. Now I need to put another roll through dad's old camera.
Got my dad's N6006 going again.

Pixels are like beans, it doesn't matter how many you put in the pot, it's how well you can cook that counts.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x. Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.
Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.
Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.
Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

I used to love that camera. Have fun with it.
Yes I remember when dad bought it new with a 35-80 Nikkor back in 1994. At the time I had a Canon AE-1 and wanted that N6006 really bad, He paid over 450usd for the body and lens-today they go for next to nothing.
Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.
D7100, D7000, D40, Canon M50, and a few 35mm film bodies
