    Hello I am fairly new to photography and I currently have a Nikon D200 but I would like to get into some film photography for fun. I have also seen alot of Film SLR's on eBay for $100 or less but I do not know what to look for besides it being in good condition. I have seen Yashica but never heard of them before *I don't get out much* and I have also heard of the Canon's AE-1. So suggestions of what you had would be good.

    If you already have a Nikon D200 then you will probably want to stick with a Nikon film camera for lens interchangabilty (sp?). I'm not really sure how much you want to spend, but here's a place to start.

    Does it have to be a SLR?

    A really fun, cheap, film camera to play with is the Holga or Diana.

    I have a 10 yr old point and shoot canon that presents outstanding results on film.

    Go for it !!

    Yes I was actually just looking at the Holga and thought that looked like a pretty neat little camera. With all of the accessories that you could use and such but as for the Diana? I have never heard of it gotta look it up here real soon.

    Well after looking around I think I might end up getting a Holga as I am pretty much going to just use the camera for fun, more as a hobby. I figure I already got a pretty decent camera but want something to play around with and not have to spend $800 for a new lense haha. Well thankyou all for your help.

    Depending if you want to have automatic settings or not, id suggest getting either a canon eos series or i personally love my old fully manual pentax. good stuff. The canon i got and it made it way easier to switch to digital canon. since you have a nikon id suggest getting one of those. less of a hassle to figure out a camera you already have a likeness of. But seriously, the pentax is a great camera. I use it about as much as i use my dslr.

    I LOVE my Holga. This goofy little camera can take some wickedly wonderful pictures. I'm sure you'll have fun with it!
