What kind of camera do you use?
Posted 07 December 2003 - 10:21 AM
the second shot I took*I shot 5 rolls*one of which was of a spirit in front of a Mausoleum...[glow=blue,2,300]DUDE[/glow] I asked if I could take his picture and he was-on my skin-actually preening, straightening his jacket, tamping his mustaches, even my sister who could walk into the middle of a -2 cold spot and not feel anything felt that something was there and I was all into my little snoopy
dance of joy for the potential capture.
Unfortunately, when the pics came back from Walgreens, there
were only two pictures and the rest were totally blank, re-wound, but blank [smiley=cwm3.gif]
Okay, enough of my tale of woe, it was a setback and this area of study requires perservereance and patience, I was just wondering what kind of film camera you all use since I'm in the market for a new one

I also use an old Minolta XG-1 SLR from the early 80's... that's still my favorite camera. If you are looking for a manual SLR, I would say that either a used Minolta or a used Nikon would be the best way to go. Many of those old SLR models from the 70's and 80's are still superior to anything you can buy today. Check out this link for more info and comparisons of old cameras to new:
The great thing about buying a used camera is that it will only cost you a tiny fraction of what it would cost to buy a new one, leaving more money for things like lenses, filters, and other accesories.

That's a really good idea, thanks. Um...accessories? Oh, my friend, I am the RANKEST of amateurs and very possibly, the most tech retarded person in the world [smiley=cwm20.gif] so
simple is WAY good.
It sounds like you take your photography very seriously, not just as a paranormal investigator, like professional or a very dedicated hobbyist

Well if you want simple, I would buy a new model. The old ones have good quality, but they have no automatic settings on them. My canon still takes great pictures in full auto mode. I am serious about photography, but only as an amateur. I have been fascinated with it since I was a lot younger, but I will not make a profession out of it because I hate taking photos under a deadline. ;D

some KICKBUTT captures and<sniff sniff>died with his boots on.
Hey, Cajun*pardon my ignorance please*but is the Poloroid one step you mentioned a digital or film camera?
Hi, KarenSue...mine had that, too but it was always a few months and hours off. It is a really cool feature, though.
Hi, Demon_Speeding, my friend, don't downsell the less expensive cameras [smiley=cwm1.gif]
Hey, Mastermind, thanks, man

Hmmm...I don't use a digital for investigating for the sake of authenticating captures, but I do like them
