FE2 and T4 is a weird two cameras to choose from. I recently copped an Olympus XA after asking a bunch of photog friends about film P&S. It seemed like the best option under $100. After being used to lugging around bricks like my Yashica electro its really nice having some shit that looks like a toy. The ease of use : quality of the pics is better than any of my other cameras.

heard alot of good things about the Olympus Stylus models as well.

though I'm thinking dude's right recommending an SLR if you're just starting. something completely manual should teach hou quick. you'll eat up some film, but fuck it.

Wish i never sold my XA, absolutely awesome camera.
Stylus Epics are dope too, but the hype is driving the ebay prices up.

The FE2 in general is just a far better camera, regardless of whatever gimick the T4 has, sure Zeiss glass is sharp as hell, but that camera's construction is embarrassing, and the lens is uber slow, especially with that shutter delay.

Trust this guy.

I asked julian about which camera to cop. A week later, I got an Olympus Stylus Epic (not black color though, ;x) for $42 off eBay.

Word thanks for the info. I'll definitely consider the XA and Stylus Epic when I decide to cop a P&S. I already have experience shooting manual considering I have a D90. I just wanted to make the switch to film to see what it's like haha. Definitely looks like fun and well worth it judging from all of the photos I've seen in this thread so far. Can't wait. &)

how much they charge?


they charged $26 for 2 rolls next day pickup. i probably paid way to much but they were my first 2 rolls ever shot so i really wanted them for next day.

I'll take your word for it Julian and cop the FE2. Thanks!

Found a FE2 with a 50mm 1.8 for 250$. Should I cop?

These are amazing dude, what film are you using?

also, a little bit off-topic, but could anyone recommend me a somewhat decent scanner for like 100-150 dollars?
March 27, 2011 @ 12:15:29
Copped for 10$ at a local thrift store. Just some minor scratches, but everything else is working perfectly. &)

March 27, 2011 @ 15:59:11
to be honest... I'm not sure what kind of film im shooting with, but it's shot at 400 ISO. I'm not sure because I enrolled in a photography class and we get film wound for us in empty used canisters. It's shot with a pretty old but decent camera, a Pentax K1000, that we're allowed to borrow from the class. I'm looking to invest in a film camera because the differences from film and digital are astonishing... You really can't feel the difference for yourself until you tried it
