    I should think that any SLR should suffice. You can choose your preference of AF or Manual SLRs or even digital SLRs. Have one already?

    u can take bus from Commenwealth MRT 197,196,198,147... few bus stop away, alight right outside SAFRA Bukit Merah...

    course fees for Basic is $50 for Club member...

    u can attend the course before buying your camera... the instructor will guide u in buying camera...

    for your info, for those who are SAFRAPC member, u can use the darkroom for FREE... provided u've being thru the course... for non member, and being certify for the useage of darkroom, u pay $8 for the whole day... Kodak B/W chemical PROVIDED....

    think about it... over 13 enlarger...
