    erm i am not really short of money. i just hate the long wait. thats all. and switching to film has been on my mind for a pretty long time. yeah so think of a way to save more money in a shorter time.

    It seems u still bent on selling ur DSLR, but u already stated if DSLR u would be getting a Canon for ease of sharing with ur frens then go ahead. IF ur frens willing to share.hehehe.

    I also find film very addictive so I had both and same lenses can be use on both also. There are always good and cheap SLR around. Just look around B&S or area around peninsula to find them. The only place I know selling 2nd hand SLRs are B&S,Ebay,TCW,ALEX Photo. There is another one but would not recommend it haha.

    All my slr cameras cost me 50 to 200bucks max.
    What is the model of the slr that you are eyeing on? Why so ex?

    If your intention is to explore film cameras now, and you deem that you wanna switch to canon, then sell your d200. No point keeping somethings that you wont use.

    But a dslr is not cheap, if you hate the long wait (to get a slr), then how about one day when you decided to buy a dslr?

    so advice please!!! thanks!
    Film is for people with deep pocket.
    If you cannot afford a film SLR, it means you will end up in financial debt to develop your film.

    not really. cos i usually sent my film to develop all a on shot and i usually plan before ahead of time and i slowly save up. so i guess for me developing film is not too big a problem

    true true. i was think of that. cos i seems to be using my dslr lesser and lesser to the point that i think it's collection dust(not literally lah of cos). i currently use my film toy cameras and polaroids more than my dslr. and i was thinking if i dun use it den it'll be a waste. but for now a d200 wouldnt fetch much either. so there is the pro and con lah. and plus i want to change system oso.

    anw, i am aiming for a nikon fm2 or some where along that range one. erm i was thinking of getting a nikon em or sth like that but the specs lack sth i want so fm2 wil be the one i would one.

    Nikon FM2? Previously someone selling the body for 200Bucks+, is that the acceptable price range for you?

    If this the case, sell you D200.

    With the money, get a FM2 for your photography works and maybe a decent digital p&s for more casual and everyday shoot.

    Good to have a digital camera.....sometime i use it to check on the exposure before i shoot with film.

    they are good.

    the biggest thing that bugs you after a while is the huge amount of money you spend on processing film and printing them out and in the process making the photo lab owners extremely rich. But they don't really take care of your negtaives, slides or photo prints.
    Yea agreed. Film processing and printing cost alot in long run.

    but i feel that it's risky to be without and plus i am afraid that it wouldnt earn much or at least fetch a good price. yeah.
