Is this a good match? Also, any thoughts on the ol Ektachrome and how it may interact with the t2? and finally, anyone have examples of said combo? thanks, johnny ps. this is my first question asked on this site or any site like it, so no smartie pants answers or snobby comments or i might not ever come back! LOL

I have one, but I don't know if there are any IR sensors in the camera that would fog the film. there IS a little film window in the back I'd tape up and of course the internal meter is unlikely to meter HIE very well. And though you have some manual override in the camera, I'm not sure you could override it enough to get the exposures right. In other words, I don't think it's a very good match. Oh and you couldn't adjust the focus very well either, not that that is a big deal. Lastly, I'm not sure how you're going to fit a filter to the front of the lens.

I think you're better off with a more manual camera than the T2.
