    My Girlfriend is now in the navy and will be home around the holidays, before she left she had taken me with her to walmart at one time to look for a nice film camera...I've then since forgot what she was looking at purchasing and would like suggestions for a decent film camera for her....I don't think she was looking for anything too fancy or expensive.

    If anyone could give me suggestions and an idea of what to look for I'de appreciate it. Also...what dollar amount can a decent camera be picked up for and are there any cameras that are good to "add onto" like I get the camera and she can later purchase her own upgraded lens and stuff...she has more money that me but i dont know what else to get her :o

    For a good film SLR camera, an N80 coupled with a nikkor 50mm F1.8 lense would make a good gift. The body costs around $300 after rebate and the lense goes for about $100.

    I thought of that but she's very artsy and likes taking real photos or whatever...i'm ptobaly not going to go with this idea anyway.
