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?

Yeah ? is it worth the extra money ?


Yes.

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.

Couuld someone reccomend me a decent but not overly expencive medium format film camera. Prefferably one that makes 6 x 6 or over negs.
Sep 18, 2011 @ 13:06
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?

should i cop a canon 28-70mm for 700? thing is. it's been used for 4 years. got to believe there's some wear there.
Sep 21, 2011 @ 04:14
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.

Hah, got exactly what you got plus a 70-300, which I'm planning on selling. Now my question is, I do mostly video, looking at either the Rode Video Mic or another prime lens. What do you guys recommend?
