    get a canon AE-1

    the lenses will only fit your rebel if you get an FD-EF adapter.

    thank you i found what i think is a great deal
    but which is better AE-1 or the t-50?
    the T-50 comes with three lens
    and the AE-1 only comes with one
    i only need it for school dark room experiments and after school is over it will probably go back on craigslist thanks you

    I don't have any experience with the t-50, but I have lots of experience with the AE-1 and I love it. I'm just suggesting what I know and like because I think everyone secretly wants to be just like me... even if they don't know it yet.

    I'd suggest you look for a film rebel (or and EOS camera) because the lenses will be interchangeable with your current camera. Although, EF-S lenses (if you have any) won't be compatible with the film cameras.

    It shouldn't cost too much for a film Rebel. I actually just got one (with two lenses) for free yesterday.

    well if you need to use the same lens on both, just get a 35mm with an EF hookup.
