    If you specifically need a manual film SLR, something like a Pentax K1000 can be had for a modest price from eBay.

    Nikon N65. Its a $500 camera and you can find it relatively cheap. Check it out on Amazon. Go under the 'buy new and used from...' and a list will show up. I got mine and love it.

    Pentax K-1000
    Nikon FM-2
    Canon F-1N (this one would be the most expensive ... but it is close to my heart)
