    Hey I currently take some pictures with a canon sd700 is. I was thinking about picking up an SLR to see if I will enjoy taking some decent pictures. What would be a good slr to start with? I am thinking a k1000. Is film readily avalible for these and are they cheap to shoot with? Thanks.
     
  2. what's your budget.

    used canon 20d's are going for next to nothing these days, might want to look into that if you're on a tight budget.
