    u mean a normal camera can load slides instead of films?

    I don't get what you mean here.


    Anyway, here goes:

    To standardise: one bulk roll of 30 metres (100 feet) of film will be called a canister and the smaller one that you load in your camera will be a roll.

    1) Buy the canister
    2) Get a bulk loader (can borrow or buy at 75 bucks in Ruby Photo - comes with empty rolls or get empty rolls from labs).
    3) use a dark place to load the canister film into the bulk loader
    4) load the film into rolls.

    For slides: one roll of provia 100F is 8.80 or 9 bucks on the market, bulk loading is about 5 bucks (slightly less) per roll. Saves 4 bucks per roll lah.

    Print film is 3 something on the market but the catch is processing print films to print is more than slide film to slides(4+4 refer to the other long thing).

    Once you get the roll which looks like the roll you buy from the shop, just load into your camera and shoot lah.

    Again, please be pro-active, all this info is in the forum, please do go and read the threads and learn!

    Okay ... get a EOS500N or 300 body with a Tamron 28-200 XR.

    All second-hand ... should cost you no more than $500...

    Even cheaper ... get a EOS500N and a EF50mmf/1.8 ... should cost less than $300

    Yup, you must be able to cultivate the interest too ... to buy once without upgrading ... is only possible if you are willing to sink in an initial investment of more than $2K. Just a rough estimate ...

    It is an auto camera with manual overide ... I suggest you borrow a book from the library on basic photography ... if I explain everything by posting here ... I might as well publish a book on this forum ...

    I think the links I posted up earlier for newbies should have something ...

    You can check out Minolta's Dynax 3, 4 or 5. They are SLR which are listed in ascending price and features. The Dynax cameras are always very competitively priced (can see the photo magazines in the library to see for yourself, compared to similar range of cameras from Nikon and Canon).

    Then again, Minolta is not as popular as Nikon and Canon, so you'll feel like a Mac user amongst all the Windows user.

    Well, you don't really need to buy a light box. you can easily make one with a couple of flourecent tubes, white opaque plastic sheet and a wooden box.

    As for a loupe, if you've got a 50mm prime lens, flip it over, and hey presto, you have your loupe.

    Today is a gift; that's why it's called the present.

    Cherry,

    Welcome to ClubSnap

    I do hope you don't find all the 'help' from others overwhelming, it's a good idea to take things slow, do lots of research and take what many here post with a large grain of salt as many are still at the 'my brand' is best level of knowledge

    cherry, in all honesty, every1 will have their own opinion about what cam to get, what to get, which accessories to buy.

    my 2 cents - nothing beats some hands-on experience. come on down to SEED... chances are there will be something of everything for you to try. i'll bring my nikon manual with a 50mm prime down for you to try if you'd like, and i'm sure i can dig up some other beginner-level SLR for you to get a feel of...

    ...............

    oops i see you've already signed up for my Newbie Table... i'll see you there then!
