Gday, ok im probably about to answer my own question but thought id have a shot anyways. Im very new to photography as a hobby (i.e i dont have a clue ) and have been looking around for an SLR to get into it. Originally i was looking for a DSLR, but a guy at work has offered me a canon EOS 1000F ( Rebel to my north american friends) with the std lense ( 28 - 55?) , a larger lense ( 78 - 300) and a canon wide angle lense. all of the above for $100. what im wanting to know is , is it worth it? am i going to buy this and wish id waited and bought a DSLR? personly, i like the idea, as ive always had a soft spot for film. However, is film still readily availaible or is that going to become a PITA? besides the above camera seem to me to be a great way to get into the hobby without spending a bomb, while allowing me to build my skills. comments?
