My dad's old 1,200 film camera which was top of it's class a decade ago goes for about 25 bucks on ebay. So for FILM CAMERAS I'd go with ebay.
For digital cameras your budget was not told but for a beginner why not the top selling point and shoot from amazon? It's on their best sellers list at:
Many are under 200.
I'm aware this forum is to discuss about digital cameras and I may need advice on that later but right now I'm also asking for film camera advice.
This is my situation:
I'm a graphic design student and next year I'm taking photography classes. Because of this I wanted to buy a camera for my class in the next months, but I've heard that (at least in my college) some teachers demand you use a film camera instead of a digital one.
So my questions are:
1.Which would be a good film camera choice for a beginner that has a tight budget (around $200 or under)? (Have in mind that I know absolutely nothing about photography).
2. Which would be a good digital camera for me? (This is an extra because I think I'll buy a digital camera later on)
