This time i have an idea of what I want
I'm trying to find a 35mm slr with

-aperture priority
-regular rangefinder size, nothing too big

Also a slim case with enough room for an extra 1-2 rolls of film
preferably one that will fit an x100 as well(not at the same time)

Probably going to get the canon a1

Givin' us ya budget is gonna help.

Aperture is also usually set on the lens so you don't really need to worry about AP mode.

i just bought an Olympus Om2, it's relatively affordable and smaller than the nikons and canons i believe...
the OM10 is even smaller and less expensive.

Olympus XA if you want a rangefinder. its aperture prioratey, has a meter, and is defiantly pocket-able.

Good size but in the flickr groups i can see that on average the quality is worse than slrs
still might buy due to portability

Also looks like a good cam

Now I'm deciding between Canon A1, XA2, and a 35RC

i would go for
Canon A1 (several mode and build like a tank, was a pro cam in its days)
35RC (nice compact rangefinder)
XA2 (plastic junk imo)
in that order.

Right now I'm looking up your suggestions

film
fuji superhq is cheap and looks kinda cheap
i'll probably get a lot of superia

are there any bulk places to buy? or just amazon

/////////
Probably going to get an XA(not XA2) first because it's pocketable and has decent quality

next semester for my photo class I'll probably get an slr or better rangefinder

thanks hb
