....do you guys still exist? Unfortunately I don't have nearly enough money to get a DSLR, or feel I have enough experience (or skill?) for one at this point, so I will have to use what I already have. My P&S is a Canon Powershot A70.. not too hot, but its okay. But.. I was given this by my brother, who upgraded to a D50 not too long ago Nikon N55 SLR.. pretty good condition, with the exception of a semi-dirty lens and slightly chipped filter. Lens is a 28-80mm 1:3.3-5.6g (i'm guessing thats 3.3-5.6 f stop?) Now heres my question.. Should I try to learn the ways of an SLR with a film camera, or would it cost more in the end buying roll after roll of film, probably wasting 75%, or take the hit and buy a D50 kit? Or... what kind of film should I be looking to get? I'm probably gona end up taking the majority of my pictures outside.. and I lack a tripod , if that matters.
