Wow, thanks for all the helpful and welcoming responses!
I'm actually a undergrad studying in California (but currently in Massachusetts for the summer).

So I've downloaded and looked over the user manual and I think I have a basic understanding of the camera now. I will also be going to a library to check out some of the books that you guys have mentioned.
As for the film, the more I look into the different types of film rolls, the more I'm uncertain as to which type of film I should get or where I should get them from. Can anyone recommend me a affordable but OK quality film? I was thinking of buying bulk, maybe from amazon?
