    many thx rep left

    any reason Jayice why they want this style of camera. The digital ones are unbelievably cheap nowadays and great bargains out there. Plus a lot of money saved in the future on processing the films- though I used to love running down to shop to pick up my pictures!

    You sure? a second hand 20D (pretty old) will still cost £180 odd

    Lomo cameras are popular 35mm film cameras - check out ebay for :
    Smena, Lomo, Cosmic, Symbol - they are Russian made and give good effects such as double exposures, saturated colours etc.
    try these websites:
    kataan.org/lom…dex
    squarefrog.co.uk/

    "proper" 35mm cameras (Zenit, Pentax & etc) go for little money too on ebay - but best to research the forums first

    some of the older lenses will work on newer DSLR's with the correct adaptor also :thumbsup:
    I have 3 old Carl Zeiss Lenses that I can mount on a Sony alpha and use the camera's on board IS.
    The lenses cost circa £10 each :thumbsup:
