    You would be with the cool people if instead of getting the latest multimegapixel whizzbang image vibration stabilator digital SLR, you went the other way and bought a Holga, a Lomo or even a cheap rangefinder like a Canonet QL17.

    I highly doubt that the latest technology is required for a photographic module in a polytechnic.

    Caleb, you don't even know what you want - want to shoot, and want to buy.

    Go read up more first. Please do not end up plonking $$$ to buy something you wouldn't like instantly.

    EOS30 vs EOS A2

    Both are light tight boxes (known as 'camera') meant to contain a capturing medium known as 'film' which essentially is a piece of plastic coated with light-sensitive emulsions.

    Yes, that's just abt EOS30 and EOS A2.

    Can't help you much here since I'm not experienced with this.

    But for raw information, try here:

    http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/f_camera.html

    Look under the EOS section and compare the EOS 30 (ELAN 7E) and the A2.

    However the camera might matter less than the lens in the end, so do bear that in mind.

    That's for the digital age. For the film age, it's lens+film I think the only significant difference between both bodies is the spot meter on the A2. That's about it.

    Hey,

    I'm from MCM.
    Get the camera from the cage.

    If you need permission, ask the lecturers.
    Then show them the results.
    If not, get a cheap second-hand SLR. There are lots floating in the market nowadays.

    Film isn't *that* expensive. $4.50 for a standard roll of film, D/O is $3.00. If there are especially good photos, get the negatives scanned. Photography will cost you around $10.00 a week, which isn't much if you save up $2 everyday.

    I saw EOS 500N's and Other old consumer rangeilm bodies going for about $100+ in the b&S before. You can proboably get those and pair it with a second hand 50/1.8 for a good start. COnsumer range film can be bought for about $3+ per roll and if its just for expermental or learnign you can get expired films for even less.

    Congrats!

    Indeed, film is not that expensive for some of the consumer varieties. Not sure what others here think of Konica Centuria 200, but I quite enjoyed the colour. It can probably be had for $3 a roll.

    Speaking of film (although getting a bit OT), I'm looking for some decent consumer ISO 800 film that can be had without blowing a hole in my pocket...any suggestions, and price? So far I've only tried Fuji Press 800, and they were given to me as part of a deal.

    Hey, save up and buy film in bulk. Much much cheaper. Buy 20 rolls at one go. The stores will probably give you a 15% discount.

    Good idea. Though during lull periods when I don't do any shooting, or shoot digi, all my film will expire. Or perhaps they'll keep well in the fridge?

    There's a Nikon FE2 with a 50mm 1.4 for sale below $300.

    I always believe that you should start small, and that in a way forces you to push yourself and your skill to a set limit, before you move to the next level.

    It reduces complancency too.

    Yeh baby, go old school at that. I was too young to experience shooting with film. Always shot with digital since I first used a camera on my own.
