I know some of you are photography guru's. I need some help. Trying to break into film photography (not digital) and I need some advice of which camera to purchase, depth, single lense reflex, F-S, etc...

P.S. I DO NOT want a point and shoot camera. I'm looking for a manual one.

P.P.S. I guess I would call them 3D effects... but not the type that you would need 3D glasses, what I mean is just really GREAT depth that makes it look like a 3D picture. Very clear, not out of focus...

How you found us: Tony
Most of the high-end cameras now have point-and-shoot modes and manual modes in various combinations. Your budget will somewhat determine which way you go.

Personally, I think the decision for a serious camera for me generally lies with a Nikon or Canon with a slight preference for Canon glass and a slight preference for Nikon bodies which are NOT interchangeable.

I haven't shot film in years so I can't help much there but I know films have improved dramatically over the years.

It a pretty big decision, because once you buy a lot of glass, you will want it to be compatible with future bodies, even digital. Good glass is more expensive than the body and to a point your work depends more on it too.
