  4. On that pricetag, Canon Rebel (eos 300) is the ideal camera for you, trust me

    There are 3 different rebel models in the US, in Europe its only one, named EOS 300...i have that camera and its a dope buy for its money. Canon has a where to buy link upthere to check for prices but i'm almost sure its close to 300

    screw that hi tech shit.
    go to a camera shop and get a simple old manual camera. none of that automatic focus shit.
    you should be able to get a camera and 2 or 3 lenses for yoru $300.

    personally, i'm a fan of the minolta, but most of the old ones are pretty similar.
  7. True that, however these cameras new are more expensive. The FM3 (nikons last full old style manual in production) comes to 500 with no lens, if i'm not mistaken...of course, give that these cameras are close to unberakable you could easily cope a used one on ebay for dirtcheap

    nice OM-1 Chup.
    i use an OM-2 and just recently bought a canon Elan 7n. def. worth the money. best thing to do is buy the camera body only and just pick up a good lens. its usually cheaper than buying a camera+lens package. you can get a 50mm lens for less than $100.
