    Well for 150-200 dollars, an old (tax deductable) Cambo or two is simple cheap indestructable and replacable. A casepacks it away between classes.

    I'm looking for a camera I can let the students use, as well as use it myself if the need arises. Most of my students I expect will be adult learners, not teens, and they'll be using the camera with direct supervision, so I'm not too terribly worried about indestructibility. I do want enough functionality that they'll be able to use the camera for whatever subject they want, be it tabletop still-life, macro, portraiture or architecture/landscape without limitations of the camera getting in the way.

    My vote would be for the Sinar. Pretty prevalent in the used market, lots of add ons. Bullet Proof.

    It is true, I regret starting out with Cambo for one reason only; the Sinar shutter and barrel lenses. But it took me quite a few years to progress to that stage of disease. With all my lenses on Cambo boards, I have adjusted by using an adaptor to put the shutter into the system. Before that I was happy with the less expensive Cambo.
    I agree, if you are going to use it yourself, go Sinar for the shutter you will want in the future.
