well as we get closer to the end of this year i think i need to start next year with a different camera. I have a minolta X-370 with a hmm 300mm tele, and a 50-85 mm lens. so my question is with price in mind what would be a nice upgrade to a higher end camera that would be mostly manual but with automatic features, so i can switch from automatic settings but have the option of full manual control. I would like to use my camera in college as a means of income like freelance so would film be a good idea? I dont know why I have such limitations to digital but i just like to know that i haven't altered my photos in any other means than darkroom only. Im not sure what additional details i should include. But i guess to really emphasize the fact the money is a main factor. OH and im in the U.S.
