im trying to help a bud of mine who wants to buy a manual camera... non digital...just regular camera you know. i think it would be best for him to go with either nikon or cannon but i could be wrong. anyone have any advice on what camera to go for? he just wants to do some casual photography with the ability to get a little advanced. wants to do landscape shots and shots of old buildings... etc. etc. it has to be an automatic... or both if there is such a thing. what do you all recommend?
