    binbeto, which canon and nikon low end slr cams do you recommend? And at what price and where? TIA
    I would recomend a F65 or F80 depending on your budget. I wouldn't call them low end. Really have to depends on how much you are willing to spend.
    If u need to go manual, FM2 seem a good choice.

    For Canon, I am not too sure.

    Hi Hazardman,

    Your question is bringing all who view this post into a flamable hazard zone....

    Whichever brand you chose is not important because what Canon has, Nikon lacks out. And what Nikon has, Canon lacks out. What is most important is that you have to feel comfortable using it.

    I think you read wrongly. he's asking a film vs digital question and not a nikon vs canon question.

    Cool

    Exactly what I guessed it to be.

    I am at the moment 75% analogue. I use my Fujifilm finepix only when I need the image for web application and nothing more. For the serious stuff I will still use film.

    I will only use digital more extensively when the price of 35mm type DSLR is <=S$2K AND there is no 1.5x lens factor AND the quality is 14 megapix or better, since that's what 35mm film (24x36mm frame) is equivalent to. I figure that should happen within the next 2-3 years.

    Cheers

    When going out alone for shooting, I would use film but when with my girlfriend I would use digital.

    Cheers.

    Besides that, when you go out with gf, basically can't shoot any interesting stuffs anyway. So just bring along a digital cam will do, shoot for fun.

    Togu you got part of the reason.

    Another reason is, if my girlfriend wanted me to shoot her, the digital cam is so small, I can chunk it somewhere else. he..he..he..

    Cheers.

    The options should appear as

    Use exclusively film cameras
    Have both but use film > 75% of the time
    Use both film and digital equally
    Have both but use digital > 75% of the time
    Use exclusively digital cameras

    So that people can see the distribution of users as a spectrum of the two extremes.

    100% pure digital. Good enough for my needs and uses.

    Have snapped 17,000+ pix since my first CP950 in 1999, with 1,500+ printed 4R to keep and the rest pressed to CD.

    I am one unique example of file to digital and then back to film again.

    I am, sort of, sick and tired of digital due to the following reasons:

    1. Digital photos are usually too unrealistic to me. There is no.... I don't know..... too flat I guess, no 3D mood in it.

    2. I need to do post processing in digital.... which I find is a real Hassle.....!!!!

    3. I don't need to care about composition, metering etc etc. In a nutshell, digital spoilt you as a photographer. You can just take and take and then go back, recompose edit etc etc ... and wackoo!!! you have an award winning picture. This is not photography... you have become more like an editor.

    4. My most hated feature of digital.... WHITE BALANCE!!! I am admit I am not fated to control this guy.... my shots in digital are always.... not that colourful. haiz........

    So, in conclusion, although I know digital has advantages over film, I still think that film makes you think before you shoot (which is good right, otherwise you will be shooting blindly). You have a more realistic feel with film. Hence, I sold my D100 and stick to FM3A and Bronica medium format!!!!!! HAHAHA...!!!!
