i think the minolta has finally bit it. even more than it did after i broke it. i thought it was just the batteries being dead on sunday, but put new batteries in it today, it is still stuck at full zoom. the slider makes it look like it’s supposed to be zooming, but it’s not. may be looking at cameras tomorrow. gah.
so the outing today was shot on film. chris and i went to sattler theatre. upon walking in it wasn’t as fabulous as i was hoping. but by the end it had grown on both of us. unfortunately i can’t shoot color film, plus i used one of the expired rolls, so the colors are way messed up. i’m not good enough with photoshop to make it look normal haha. most were switched to black and white, and i have 2 real black and white rolls to pick up tomorrow. it’s a neat little building. i’ll need to go back with a new camera if i get one, for color shots.
so looking for a camera, i still want to go with nikon. it seems silly to spend 900 on the d70 when for 100 more i could get the d80…but i’m still having issues spending that much money. gah. so expensive. and i don’t know whether to get the kit with a lens, when the stock lens was reviewed sorta badly, or not. i know nothing about lenses, and maybe mine is shit right now too and i just don’t know any better. will i really notice a problem with the stock lens? i doubt it. gah so so so much money.
