Need some advice I want to buy a 35mm SLR camera to use for glamour as well as all purpose photography. I have a Canon EOS Digital and want to stay with Canon. One of the main reasons I want a film camera is because many scenary magazines will not use digital images and want slides for publishing photos. Any suggestions/recommendations on what would be a good model Canon to purchase?
Thanks
Jim

Jim,

Convert your digital images to slides. Find a good lab that turns out quality work. I shot for a client a number of years and they would only take slides. I had all my images I sent to them converted. They never knew the difference. About my 3rd year shooting for this client they came to me and asked me to shoot digital. It seems that the publishing company they used was no longer taking slides.

Depends what you want. An EOS 620 is a inexpensive decent camera, as is the Elan 7. The both can use Canon EF lenses (NOT EF-S). If you need new glass anyways, you might want to think about manual Canon cameras like the AE-1, A1, or the T90. These are older cameras, 70's-early 90's, and they have awesome quality lenses available at a fraction of the cost of EF lenses. The reason however fot the difference in price is because FD (manual focus) lenses can not be fitted to modern SLRs.

I would think that any publisher that wants film for scenics, instead of digital, would not be satisfied with 35mm anyway, they'd probably want medium format or really, 4x5. Most of the big scenic guys use only view cameras for the film size as well as swings and tilts. Check out David Muench's (my favorite) work in books and calendars. All view camera.

Hi
Thanks for the information I am thinking on the same lines as you as far as the Elan 7 goes and the lenses would be almost interchangable with my Canon EOS digital I know there is a difference when you shoot though.

A used Canon A2 body runs about 200 bucks now in darn good shape.. Or even go with a used EOS 1N body.. It was their top of the line pro body in the 90's.. I only got 80 bucks a piece for them at the camera store in town.. that means they will fetch some 250 bucks on the shelf..

What would the cost factor of converting digital images into slides vs buying a reasonable film camera and going that route? I guess there are more angles to look at (no pun intended)

I have an EOS A2E with the grip that I'm looking to unload. Great camera: clean, 5fps, takes your EOS lenses (As previously mentioned, does NOT take the EF-S lenses). If you're interested make me an offer. I'll also throw in a few rolls of Velvia that have been in my fridge for a while.

Cheers,

MG
