I was going to buy a big stockpile of B&W film and some darkroom kit, but my fundamental lazyness has taken over. Selling some bike bits as ive torn my knee again, and currently have about £250 in cash to spend. Would rather get soemthing that won't depreciate like a stone so I can upgrade it in a few years.
So recomend me a secondhand DSLR, I'm leaning towards a nikon D40x, but someones told me the sensor on the D40 was better as it had less pixels (and therefore each one was more sensitive) and I wouldn't miss the extra 800 lines anyway.
Is buying off ebay a bad idea? I'm hoping as theyr not cheep that they get taken care of, is there much to go wrong? Is it worth geting one 2nd hand from a shop for quite a bit more cash but a few months peace of mind, or do they last indefinately like film cameras (my film one was my Dad's when he was a teenager!) ?
