Well my grandfather passed away a few days before Christmas, right as I ordered my Canon Digital Rebel XT. I wash showing my grandmother my camera and she was like "is that a Canon?" and I said, "yes, it is" She then went on to tell me that my grandfather shot with a 35mm Canon camera and she still had it, but she was willing to pass it down to me. She told me a story of when she jumped in a pool wearing it around her neck and ruined it so he upgraded. This was "sometime in the 80s" as she put it. I;m hoping it was the dawn of the EOS series (for lens compatibility with my XT). Anyway whatever SLR he owned, it was new in the 80s. She also said he had "an assortment of lenses". I am so excited to be getting a film camera to compliment my digital. I am hoping to also get the free upgrade of additional compatible lenses but even if not, some nice FD lenses to go with the film camera itself will be awesome. Only problem now is deciding which I want to shoot with more, film or digital? I'll post more up when I actually get the gear, my grandmother is coming from Florida in a week and she said she is bringing it then.
