thanks gerald -
yeah, this would only be for family snapshots &C.
just something to put a load of film through, and not have to deal with setting shutter speeds, fstops, focus ... oh, i guess i should have said "just something to put a load of film through and point and shoot"
i know slr's are cheep and abundant these days, and a lot of them are lame and for the most part breakdown and churn out bad photos ...
thanks again gerald
