I'm still sticking to film because I am waiting for a reasonably priced full frame nikon.

Would you go for such a kludgy camera? Noise seems to be a problem and I don't know what the resolution is at ISO 800.

$800

6 or 3.4 MP at ISO 800. Not bad. But I have no idea how it looks.

Can't meter with manual lenses because it is based on F80. Bad. :(

No Aperture support. :(

SILKYPIX works, but it ignores the WB info.

Bibble Pro works.

ACR and Lightroom work.

I think you'll be waiting a while then. It's a fair studio camera, but I don't think I'd pay $800 for one.

Well, I got it. I was pleasantly surprised, I thought it would be more bulky.

I think it was a good price. It's going for $870-$1500 on ebay.

We'll see how it performs with good light outside, RAW, and postprocessing.

Now to really justify getting this instead of the Sigma 10-20 DC, I would have to buy the Sigma 12-24 (FF).

Absolutely not!

Run a mile, even if it was half the price. Why put money into what is a defunct camera with little or no support? For $800 that is the larger part of a current fully supported camera with far less issues than the 14N.

Because a current full-frame will cost $5000 for quite a while.

Kodak DCS Pro 14n

I have a Kodak DCS SLR Pro 14n for 3 years and a Kodak DCS Pro 14n for 2 years and now they both have the same problem. The LCD screens are black and won't display anything and the pictures aren't going to the memory card.
I have a feeling they're going to be expensive to repair. I've loved using them because of the high resolution but now I don't have a camera to use unless I go back to film. It's very disappointing.
