Heres a few photos. Some very interesting machinery inside, I plan to go back tomorrow with a tripod - its very dark inside. All of the external shots are over a fence, LV was handy for that.

Ya, my DSLR is getting shot out of the water, not enough income until I get into the Navy.

I was thinking something along the lines of this.

For $399, I'd rather get a Refurbished Canon Rebel XS w/ kit lens from Adorama for just a bit more...

I'm looking at it now, how are these refurbished, sent back to the Manufacture or some other means?

To be honest, I am not entirely sure, but if I had to guess they were BNIB cameras purchased from Adorama and returned to the store itself for repair, or they were B-Stock items sent from Canon to Adorama.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me can answer this accurately.

Personally, I'd jump on it. Adorama is a well-respected site and even refurbs come with a one-year warranty.

Yes, and Canon slaps them with a 90-day warranty, but as said, Adorama gives them a year warranty.

I barely slept yesterday because I was so excited about my new acquisitions. I also feel like a thief for getting them that cheap... but a happy thief.



It's definitive, I'm keeping the F5. I thought about keeping the F100, but after using it, keeping the F5 is the logical choice, even if it means 200$ less in my pockets.

http://www.facebook.com/video/video....50176681650593

The F5 was stored with the batteries for the past 3 years... It wouldn't start up and I freaked out. I had to take the batteries out and short the battery terminals to reset the camera and make it work properly, it now works like a charm. Just loaded some film in both the F100 and F5 for this weekend, hopefully there are no meter problems!

So if anybody is in the market for a gripped F100 or F4S, gimme a holla!

Honestly, there isn't much difference between the two in terms of functionality. Try out both cameras if you can, and simply go for the one that feels more natural in your hands. This is definitely a personal preference issue, so while everyone on here has their own personal opinions on this, their thoughts might not necessarily apply to you.

As for accessories, both Nikon and Canon have extremely extensive accessories markets along with third party parts. You'll be fine with any brand. I'd check out Adorama and B&H for accessories, as those are the two camera sites I go to the most.
