    I want to get a film camera to use for various "alternative" techniques I want to do, and to be able to use the darkroom.

    I currently have a Canon AE-1 (older than I am), and am wanting something a bit more "modern".. I don't really want to spend more than $250-$300 on it, and it doesn't even need to be new, Ebay is my friend!

    Any recommendations on a good quality SLR film camera that isn't very spendy? I also want to be able to do lenses and filters easily, so something that would allow that.

    I was a big fan of the Canon EOS 10S. Another alt. is maybe a Nikon N8008/f801. The AE-1 is a nice camera though.

    sillyphaunt, i was in the same boat as you a few weeks ago. upgrading from the same camera, actually. I found a used Canon EOS elan IIe on ebay for like $130 shipped. It looked brand new. I dont think it was ever used. Im sure there are similiar deals on ebay, and i absolutely love the camera. I recommend it highly.
