    WHere an I find old, and used camera equipment?
    I'm talking like an old 35mm SLR, with no automatic features whatsoever.
    I've used my uncle's Zenith a bit this Summer, and I fucking loved it. Shooting B&W film with manual exposure and focus was much easier than I expected, plus the whole thing had this fee to it DSLRs just can't replicate.
    So, where can I get that shit. PReferably not online, and if it has to be online, then not Ebay.

  4. Tomash you already know that there is no LCD to preview your shots on the back of 35mm cameras right?

    Try local pawn shops or camera stores for used trade ins. If you are looking for an old 35mm I'd recommend a Nikon F3, or F3HP. They are bullet proof and spectacular in every way. Optional motordrive available, and you can find some nice AI-S prime glass for cheap nowadays.

    How muh would one cost? I don;t care about quality, or dings and scratches.
