    Hello!

    Next year I will be taking a Photography class. So, I need a "single-lens reflex, 35mm manually operated camera" for the class. Without this, I cannot enter.

    Remember, I am a student and I don't have THAT much money to spend (although I could get some cash from my parents).

    In another topic, I asked for some good 35mm SLRs and I got this:

    Canon AE-1
    Minota X-700
    Pentax K1000
    Olympus OM4
    Nikon FM-2
    Ricoh KR-10
    (Thanks KevinR! And Hobbes!)

    Although I would prefer one of these above, I dont really mind any other working 35mm SLR camera.

    Thanks for reading! :hug:: :thumbup:

    (If anyone sees any good deals on eBay, could you please PM me the link; I have been searching there for a while, but, I have no clue what anything means.)

    Look at my add titled “Canon 35mm EOS and FD”. This is exactly what you need. The AE-1 is perfect for you. If the package is to much for you then I would be willing to sell the AE1 body and the 50mm lens for $75 plus shipping. This is really all you need and a perfect first camera. Just let me know what you think, email at dana@aplace4us.com

    Take a look at my camera for sale. I have a Canon Rebel EOS KII for sale (shoot me an offer, I'm asking around 135, but am flexible). I just used this camera for 2 months for my Introduction to Photography class. It is really a great camera.

    What is wrong with your K1000? Its a good manual camera. A camera I would add to the list is any Nikkormat model. I still use my FS bought in '68.
