Default Re: Any advice for my first camera?

Don't go for film. It's like using a horse instead of a car or gas instead of electricity. The film is dead. In a few years, the pixel technology will surpass film grain in quality. Sensors are getting better and better everyday. They react to light using the same principle film does. Even today you will do digitally what you would do with film without noticing the difference. What is the point in shooting film for then scanning the negative digitally and processing the picture digitally and putting it in internet? None. Because I don't see that nowadays a normal person could afford the time and the TONS of money to develop color film and print color pictures at home. And this would be perhaps the only justification for using film, going the whole process through.
