Default Wanted:Canon FD body...

Hi folks! As its my eldest daughters 11th b'day on 11/11/11, I thought its about time I started to teach her the dark arts of photography Recently I was gifted an absolutely mint unused miranda 28 2.8 macro in FD, and whilst I may be a nikon user, I thought what the heck, I might as well et her a canon body to go with the lens. So if anyone has an old ae 1 or preferably a1 or something with aperture priority that they dont need anymore, I'll be happy to exchange some cash for it
Thanks, Sam

Unfortunately I haven't got such a camera but apparently the FD lenses while top quality are as cheap as chips in comparison with comparable makes - allegedly due to Canon making so many and not following a policy of retro adaption unlike Nikon.

So there's a range of lenses and cameras that are a real bargain. Great for an 11yr old, starting out. Best of luck with getting a suitable camera.

Thanks! I'm gunna try for a 50 1.8 combo so shes got a normal to go with the wide. Teaching her film should give her a pretty unique skill, I'll also teach her how to dev a bit further down the line.

Kids love saying: "I made this" Take her into the darkroom and let her do the developing( it's pretty mechanical after all). I am sure she will do a great job.
