My 1000s has the AE prism, which is great for quick shots. This is an aperature priority system with the shutter speeds being selected. If you really like the camera this might be worth a look. For indoor shots a Sunpak 555 is used with 6 x 6 mount, letting the flash to be used in automatic mode. I like the fact of getting 15 exposures out of a roll of film, Steven.
