    U can try searching the Personal Classifieds or put a WTB post but I doubt u can get one at such a low price

    u probably will have better luck looking for some good old manual film SLR cameras ard that price.

    thanks for the warm welcome!!!!! 2nd day of trying to cram and digest all the info..... actually..... i dunno wats the difference between the diff kind of cameras.....
    i like the look of the RF... the vintage kind of thing.... but it seems like its really difficult to hand....

    should i start with a SLR instead??????

    Do note that the startup cost of film camera system compared to digital usually is lower nowadays.. however, the cost of print in the long run will show up, especially u r still in the learning stage.. juz my 2cents
