awhile back i showed my nephew some pictures of some of my hiking trips and he loved those pictures and wants to get into photography as a hobby. so i signed him up for a basic photography class in the local community college for fun. personally, i don't know much about camera. i just read look things up at cnet to get an idea and search the web which works well for digital but the professor requires film camera. which it think it's cool for him to learn how to use a dark room. i have looked up some film camera but i would like to have more options before buying. the requirement for the class is 35mm film or larger, adjustable shutter speeds, and f-stop. thanks in advance.
