    Canon's EOS 66 or Nikon's F55 is only $399 I think. Comes with a kit lens to start with I think it's a 28-80mm

    Have to use built-in flash for time being, the remaining cash can get a Am-Pro dry box from Carrefour (larger than the NIkon dry box and cheaper), A Bottle of silica gel, Li-Ion batteries and film for your camera, a cheap tripod possibly 2nd hand and maybe the shop will throw in a free camera bag if you persuade them enough.

    Too bad you missed the previous Canon's offer. the EOS 66 was offered for $399 with a free dry cabinet!

    If you really want to learn and master the art, some people will recommend you try to get a 2nd hand Nikon FM2 with a 50mm f/1.8
    Very good way to start learning

    Hi hi, I am new here.
    Anyway, I am buying SLR film cam also.
    Originally saw similar package like the above mentioned.
    2 lens, body and a dry cabinet for $798 as offered by Ms colours.
    But then, is it too good to be true?
    Is 75-300mm lens really that necessary I also dunno.
    I m comtemplating should I get a canon 300 or 300v??
    And I got recommendations of Nikon F65.
    So ermmm....I am confused.
    Can anyone please enlighten me?

    starting out?

    then get a manual SLR.

    something like an FM2 would do very well for ur training and getting to know aperture, focusing, shutter speed.......
    top it off wth a 50mm f1.8 lens.

    it doesn't matter what brand of SLR you chose, a hearty welcome to the film club.

    Congratulations on getting your first camera (probably)! Have fun playing with the different functions.

    Currently, I am starting on my photo story/essay with NTU as the theme and hope to compile it into a small booklet for publishing or exhibiting. Perhaps you want to join me? But think the story will probably take 1-2 years to complete, since I have around 2 years left in NTU so don't want to rush. You can email me at lifesux_80@yahoo.com.sg if you are interested. (if not interested also nvm, we can meet up for a coffee or something)
