Re: Question on a film camera...

You'll want a fully manually-adjustable camera, preferably one made in the past decade. It should be an SLR with a reasonably popular lens mount (K-mount, Nikon or Canon, etc.).

Ebay can be your friend, just check the seller ratings first.

You might also want to check out this thread and PM the author (his cameras are older than 10 years, but they're Nikons).
