Any of you nosy enough to scope my profile will see that I am about to begin graduate work in archeology. One of the many tools of an archeologist's trade is photo equipment for documentation. In my experience so far most archeologists use pro-level 35mm SLR bodies with two lenses (50mm and 28mm) and no flash. Because of the cost of photo equipment all the cameras I've had experience with so far have been old Canon F1s. Here's my question to the more photo-savvy: Is there anything wrong with getting a used Canon F1 (since I'm familiar with it) to improve my skills? Would a newer SLR be better? The pictures the F1's took were (to me) indistinguishable from those done by newer, more expensive film cameras. The F1s n ebay aren't really that cheap, but they're chaeper than a new EOS by far. Bottom line: good, cheap SLR?
