    just got my canon elan II this morning. man this thing has more buttons and settings than this polock has ever delt with. I ordered a magic lanterns guide to my camera to help me learn how to use everything to it's fullest. Now i just need an adapter for my contax lenses to work on my elan body. I have seen some on ebay for around 20 bucks shipped. my question.. should i order one from a camera shop, or should these work fine?

    also, does anyone use polarizing filters with black and white photography?

    A very nice SLR you picked up there. ;) Congrats on the purchase and especially for the desire to learn how all of those bells and whistles work! :lol:

    You'll find using various colored filters will benefit you when shooting B&W, such as yellow, green, and red.
