    not really sure what my requirements would be, do not know much about film, want something that will give the old time photo look, I would think that would depend on film and paper as well? can those results be achieved by having a film processing place do it?

    also can I get something under $50?

    The "old time photo look" is more dependent on the film/processing then the camera. Canon hasn't been around long enough to create a camera so primitive that it would look different then a new camera.

    If you post some images of the "look" your going for it we could help you.

    Old time photo look could be any combination of:

    1) very high contrast black and white
    2) color shifting
    3) Vignetting
    4) dust/dirt/scratches
    5) barrel distortion
    7) film grain
    8) flash bulb photography (long exposures with flash)

    Canon AE-1 or Canon EF. The AE-1 is an inexpencive entry level film SLR that served in the hands of many a pro during it's term of production.

    The Canon EF is a slightly more expencive model, A member of the F-series of body that was Canons Professional line of the era. Has more features than the AE-1 and a far more durable body.

    The Canon EF and AE-1 use the same line of lens so upgrade with lens compatibility is always an option.

    I own and have shot both models and preferr the EF but the AE-1 will likely serve your needs acceptably.
