anyone got anything to help mi understand it more... been surfing tonns of webbies got 50% of it....

after using digital all the way i was thinkng of getting film...maybe use it to shoot black and white...... and a range finder seems great , compact and fast. don't want a film slr since i already have a DZSLR.

i see the leica m6 and m7 , 2000+ really out of my budget... any range finders for starters like mi?

Thanks!

you can get really cheap second-hand russian viewfinders (leica copies) on ebay for about S$50 to $S60. most are really old as they were made in the 60s and 70s. try looking for fed, zorki or smena series.

don't need to have CC to trade on eBay, money orders are widely accepted too.

as long as you go to reputable sellers (there's a rating system) and choose insured shipping, you will be safe.
