    i may b a bit unconventional but feel like volunteering

    recentlyjust got a minty and flawless eos 1n (gripless,so the size wont scare off newbies). bought it for a good price with the intention of using "till it dies faithfully in my arms" and also as a "vintage classic collectible item that i can pull out and show to my grandson in the future" too bad i wasnt born earlier to really witness and experience canon FD classics and the subsequent EOS revolution...anyway my canon ranting aside; this is for those who just want to try out the feel of a higher-grade film slr and those potential canon users. (and also to psycho them into the canon gang ) it wont be used for the next few months coz i busy...can maybe leave it safely with the rest of the collection or dunno what consolidated arrangement u guys can come up with.?

    the 9xi is one hell of a body, the 9 stands for rugged, durable and heavy.
    Objection !!!

    I am touched with the generous offers by the old birdies. Wish we had such a great forum over here.

    Wow, was doing a search on minolta cameras and stumbled upon this thread, i'm really pleasantly surprised,

    Well it's my first post here, i'm a photography newbie as well. Not sure if anyone would entrust me with his camera, but if anyone's willing to lend this new guy an SLR for a hands-on experience, I'd be more than delighted to borrow it from you.

    Hey there siaoon, noticed you're staying in hougang as well. Maybe i can borrow your 700si when you're not using it. I've only had experience with an Olympus 740UZ, so SLRs and non-digitial cams would be a whole new trip for me.

    My equipment still available for borrow.

    Point to note is that those that make it available might not be monitoring this thread, so if you want to borrow a item, PM or contact the person directly.

    Hey Gary! You may want to direct your questions in the Minolta forum, since there are quite a number of people there who could give you opinion about the different flashes.

    Alternatively, you may want to join us for the SEED this wednesday. Vader and forbytes would be giving clinic for the usage of the flashes.

    hi there nice people! i don't intend to borrow SLRs, but wondering if anyone can lend a cheap but nice Digital(SLR or not) with my eos 5 as mortgage? Even though my Eos is spoilt(yet to repair it, battery problem?) but i really wish to try to take up photography for fun again. I started photography because of film....ended it because of it too... too expensive lol

    Even though pixel wise, digital is still behind on film (catching up at an alarming rate still huh?) I'd like to just practise and not to worry about film and developing charges =/ . Thanks for taking time to read.
