    hello im a beginner to photo and buying my first slr right now i have narrowed it down to the Nikon N70 with a 50mm F 1.8 for $242 and a Canon EOS A2 body w/ no lens for $179. Which one would be the better camera and what would be better for skateboarding pictures.

    Well you can't shoot anything without a lens.

    N70 no doubt, at least it's got a lens with it.

    it's film...they're light tight boxes that hold film.

    Choose whichever one feels better in your hand.

    Unless you are looking to buy "new", $242.00 seems kind of pricey for a N70.

    I have the N70 it is a good camrea, i got it of ebay it worked good for me untill the light meter starting messing up. If you can get one new it would probably work better. I like to shoot skating too best thing ever ha
