    Default I was wondering..

    Im still quite new to photography. Ive decided to venture out on DSLRs after much satisfaction of taking pics even though some might look pathetic. Ive an old dynax 3xi camera with a n old A 70-210/ 4.5-5.6 minolta lens .

    my main question is , Im in NS now, just 1 month in and got my pay already $(350 nia) . Oh yes, Im 18 by the way. I was wondering , if there are any places I can go to get a camera and pay by installments ? Am looking for a 350d or d50 oor dynax 7d/5d

    thanks guys for helping out

    i never liked the idea of paying by installments. paying interest for a camera that depreciates in value all the time doesn't sound correct. why not look at the Buy and sell forum for 2nd hand deals?

    Cash instalments? Abit tough. Typically its credit card 0% instalments.

    Since u have a 3xi, use that first. What's wrong with it anyway?

    If it is 0% interest free why not?? Some credit card offer 0% interest free.

    can ask family member for help if no credit card.

    Since it's your first month, you must still be in bmt unless you are PES E. Just see your posting after BMT, where you go dictates the amount of shutter time you have.

    Not in a good position to take photos? Is the body damaged in anyway? Or is it too 'low tech' and 'not in' to be shooting photos with a film body?

    U can check out Buy and Sell for Minolta lenses or check out shops like TCW at Peninsular for 2nd hand Minolta wides like 24-105 or stuff like that.

    That's why I don't advise people on instalment. Do it for a huge sum >$50K. Else pay in full.
