    Exclamation all the pros!! i need ur views

    just asking

    if i sold my sony f707 + teleconv + 2 x 64 mem stick + extra batt + bag for $1600
    is it err reasonable???

    teleconv olympusb300 = $200
    2 x 64 stick = 160
    extra batt = $80
    cam with warrenty = $1160

    worth it?
    i was actually thinking of just selling the cam away and move to use SLR.
    i figured i could get a pretty good second hand slr and a lens if i chipped in alittle bit more.

    how? all the pros.... i need ur views!

    wah for $1600 you can get a pretty decent SLR man! i not sure about Canon but $1.6k can get you a mint F90x with vertical grip and a 'not-bad' lens or primes, depending on your preference of course. might even have some $$$ leftover for accessories some more...

    unless you're talking D-SLR of course, then you need to chip in a LOT more... :P

    reason?
    i dun see the richness of colours in a f707 that an SLR might give,and i felt that i've been missing alot of moments due to shutter lag and all...

    using film SLR, you might miss many things that a digital SLR can give too. Eg. you will miss lots of shots because you dare not to fire the shutter continuously (printing cost is high...and only 36 frames in a roll), no immediate view of the photo, printing and developing cost, time and cost of digitizing the image to show on computer screen...etc.

    Not discouraging you to go for film SLR, but just listing out a few thoughts of mine.
