    Also I kinda dig the provide your own lens SLR deal, I can also offer up an olympus OM40/PC, which i used to shoot in great shape if theres enough interest with everyone to go OM lenses.
    I have a nice, well-stocked used-gear shop nearby, with a 30 day return policy. Send any 35mm SLR and I can 'borrow' whatever's required.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    If you are going to go that way, why not go old school? Pentax Screw Mount. Available all over the world, cheap as dirt, funky optics available.
    My fav is a Zorki Jupiter 9 85mm with M42 thread. Lots of great Takumar lens out there too.

    IMO, we need to keep it simple. Not everyone has access to extra lenses for which ever camera would be chosen, so a P&S is the only way to go.

    With a point and shoot we would not have the delay times as people got equipment together to go take pictures.

    Or stick a dirt cheap Tamron 28-200 zoom on it.

    But the P&S is cheaper to ship.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    No Nikon or Olympus here... Sigh...

    Do have M42, FD, EOS, and K-mount.

    Both ideas are good ones. Same camera shows a differing vision with the same equipment and film. Same body lets you experience lenses that you may not have, as they might look on your camera.

    Actually, I have a Fujica STX-1 sitting on a shelf that would work perfectly for this. The only forseeable problem is somebody would fall in love with the little jewel and keep it. I can see where we would be right back in the same place we're at now, no camera and getting pissed at a horder.

    I got my photos in last night after work. First of the supposedly haunted St. Marks church, not sure if i got enough depth of field, but I selected +Flash mode. The others were of the annual Village Halloween Parade, one shot from the staging area, and another from within the parade procession itself (I walked the parade).

    Shawn lets meet up!

    Absolutely! I'll send you a PM. Friday after work? I can swing by Brooklyn or we can meet up in the city.
