I've been looking on eBay and I guess I've settled on the Nikon EM or FG-20 for a film SLR. Anyone have experience with either?

So I am starting a photography class and I already have a T2i but never really had time to go shoot. But for this class for now we have to use film which I'm happy because a lot of people told me to learn on film. Now I just need a film camera. Which do you suggest for a beginner?

Looking for a zoom lens cause all I have is the 18-55 and 50mm lens.
What's the best one for $300 or less.
Trying to get enough zoom for my nephew's football games.

This is with 50mm cropped.



Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Telephoto Zoom Lens - $115

Is this any good? There's no IS and I can probably use a tripod.

Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS Telephoto Zoom - $140

Giving up 50mm for IS?

75-300MM is one of the worst canon class you can get both IS and non IS. 55-250 all the way.

i had the 75-300mm when i first started out in photography, and i agree— it is one of the worst canon lenses ever. luckily i bought it used, and sold it the next day i got it in.

if you're gonna get a telephoto lens (with a long focal length), IS is a must (unless you plan on using your tripod at ALL times).

35mm 1.8, runs you about 200$.

I'd stay away from budget telephoto zoom lenses. you'd be happier if you saved for either the 85 f/1.8 or 70-200L f/4. you can get the 85 for 350 or less and the 70-200L f/4 for $500

The 70-200L f/4 is a really good deal if your doing sports. Your shooting at such a high shutter speed that you would not use IS.

^ exactly. Also I doubt that peewee/midget league games seldom happen at night, so the lighting will be excellent, most times.

I'm looking for a small "fun" camera to use as a side hobby. It has to be small enough to carry around my neck like I'm trying to make a fashion statement. Nothing bulky like most of the d-slrs people have.

After a quick google search, I'm thinking about getting the Sony Alpha NEX-3 or NEX-5. The only reason I'm considering the NEX-5 is the magnesium alloy construction vs the NEX-3 plastic construction. Is it worth spending a little extra money for a more rugged camera?

the number of shots or years don't really matter. as long as it's well cared for. If you are buying from a professional, I'd avoid it, as they will most likely put the most wear you can ever imagine on a lens. You should inspect it in person if possible. The price is about the average price you'd find a really good copy lying around for.

Keep in mind that the lens in question is the first version of the 24-70L.

Personally I would opt out for the 24-70. I had it for a couple of days and the lens of very perdy. But if it helps your decision a well cared for lens should last for about 10 years. Maybe longer. Otherwise if it hasn't been well cared for then you will see that it wont last as long.
