    ok, since alot of you guys are into photography and posting threads with personal photos etc.
    I like taking photos and have wanted to do it for a while now, blah blah blah. Ok, actually I figure if I rock an SLR over the neck with a camera pack and a khaki vest, chick's will be more likely to get butt nekkid uh for "art" and stuff.

    So I hear all you nerds talk about SLR's etc. So tell me what's the big deal? Tell me all the cool shit they can help you do. Also any recommedation's on a cheap starter model. ie. price, durability, functions, ease of use, etc. Or should I just buy whatever Andre Agassi tells me to?

    Don't trip Pistol will still continue to bring you unartsy half naked pornstars flashing plastic tits. I still have testicles.

    a single lense reflex (i rock...) camera is yer basic big, bulky camera... you can get a decent one pretty cheap... you end up with a crisper shot than with a disposable, or similar type camera... mainly, you get the cool sound of the shuter opening and the mirror moving and all that, so the girls know you know what's up... i've been rocking a TLR more recently, tho... it makes you look even cooler...

    Shooting photos instead of pistols? I don't know much about photography because I'm not a big fan of reality but if I were to get a camera it would be that credit card sized one that fits in your wallet.

    Basically SLR means single lens reflex. The view finder reflects off of a mirror and through the actual lens. This means an SLR system will require a Body and a lens and depending on the lighting situation, a flash. A good start would most likly be a Cannon AE-1. The body is simple in design and these are genereally inexpensive. Ususally run for about $180 for one in good condition and sometimes as low as $75. I find that these cameras are very reliable and for how outdated they are, it is easy to find accessories and additional lenses for them. With SLR system you will need to buy a lens seperate from the body. Sometimes you will run across the package deals but you might not be intrested in the standard 50mm lens. The 50mm lens is decent but does have some limitations as far as feild of view is concerned. If youll be taking up close shots of attractive yet fake females i would suggest purchasing a 35mm lens to start with. These run you about $70 - $120, again this is depending on its condition. If you live in SF or NY youll prolly not have a hard time finding a decent setup. However, be aware that alot of dealers out there are shady and will ahve some crappy prices so do your research before purchasing a lens or body. I myself rocked 2 AE-1s for about three years, with a about a 5 lens assortment. Now my weapon of choice is the Nikon N90-S with a nikkor AF 24mm-70mm at a 2.4-3.5 Fstop. I also have s speedlight SB-26 with the multiple flashing lens. GOOD LUCK and hit this thread up if you ahve any other additional questions, especially about film.

    the difference between a canon elf and SLR is that an elf is APS (advanced photo system) camera, which i think is not very advanced. it basicly is a smaller format (smaller negative) which gives you less quality of an image. this is why they make their cameras so small. also, APS has little variety in film and is more expensive than 35mm to get processed.
    an SLR gives you many more options in film and creativity. being able to use your camera manually (f stops and shutter speed) gives you total control of the image. f stops control your depth of field, and shutter speed allows you to capture motion or freeze it.
    good SLR for starters is canon rebel series. has auto and manual settings. for full manual, canon ae-1 is good, like when said...although i think $300 is a little much...i got mine for like $100 at a pawn shop.

    okay i think i've rambled off here enough...but i rather be talking about photgraphy than actually doing any work here on the job. feel free to e-mail me too.
