I have decided to get a new camera.Since I can't afford the 20D ($1200 camera) that I want. I've decided to go the opposite route and buy an antique Russian camera. It's called a Lubitel 166, and it freakin' ROCKS! I have been more and more interested in old school photography ever since I started using a 35mm SLR back in december. It just intrigues me to know end some of the things that these old "outdated" cameras can do without the help from digital post-shot manipulation. Plus they produced images that are so beautiful and archaic that can't be recreated digitally.
Needless to say, I'm a little excited. I haven't bought the camera just yet, as it will be about $50 after the shipping from the Ukraine, but as soon as I get it I will start pounding out some shots and putting them up at Aesthetic-Mindset for all to see.
my friend justin has one of these, as well as several other odd cameras. look for him on flickr.
