    I'm wanting to buy a FILM SLR, preferably a Canon. It doesn't have to be anything new or have a lot of frills. I just need it to be able to take slides and hopefully be a bit more updated than my 25 year old Canon I am currently using.

    ANyone have anything they're willing to part with?

    Yeah.. I checked there a bit but wanted to try here first. To tell you the truth, I'm totally overwhelmed when I look at all they have on there.. I dont know which ones are new, which are old models, etc etc. I thought if I bought from someone on here at least I could ask some questions. :lol:

    What is your budget, and what features are you looking for?

    The one I purchased, the Eos 50 (Elan II) is a modern slr, with most of the frills of today's cameras. Most of them go for between $100 and $200, and are great cameras. The Elan II(e) just has eye controlled focus, and may cost more, so I'd stick with an Elan II.

    A more modern version is the Elan 7, which would be more expensive. There's also a 7(e) which has the same eye controlled focus.

    This looks like a a potential good deal, worth watching.

    I have a minolta maxxum 5 with an on/off camera flash and a 28-200 lens if you're interested.
