Except when they aren’t used for fill but is deemed sufficient for everything.
I'm smarter than that. I have proper flash guns for when I'm in serious mode, and the F6 and my digitals make using them super easy.
But a touch of fill on a sunset shot with the overbright scenery behind, or in the old days when the sun always backlit the people I was strapping into a glider for a ride, or even a dog eating whipped cream indoors when I have 100 speed film loaded... Not worth carrying a big flash all the time, but damned nice to have the popup on the camera.
They usually can't be repaired (economically) if they break
and all will at some point. They don't take up much room.
Yeah, Bob, that's my thought. Though I have a habit of "lending" them to people, so my n65 and 8008 are in the hands of young friends who are interested in photography. Same with my work record and Zoom 90WR, though the girl who borrowed the work record almost immediately offered to buy it. I just don't see selling any of them for the price they pull. They should run rolls of film until they have problems and can't be economically repaired.
They're not going to last forever. But they take fantastic photos now, while they're in good shape. I'm now pretty set on getting another N80 for the box, and using it as a backup for my backup.
