    yeah i know

    i am going to buy a digital in about 5 months for my own use because i don't want to have to get pay for all the film and get that done.

    I am probably going to buy a D40 or something in that price range.

    This guy on Honda-Tech is selling a Pentax K1000, 3 lenses, and a bag for $200. I'm sure you could offer him $150 because he's been trying to sell it for a while. It's the same camera I used in 3 photography classes. Fully manual. Easy to use. Etc.

    too much of a hassle me being in canada. I need it now not in a week. My dad knows a guy in my city who owns a camera store and he said he will give me everything I need for cheap.
