Deiota,

You would rotate the zoom manually.

There's no button to zoom.

There is not for any lens or just for my old ones?

I'm considering on buying the kit lens either, the EF-S 18-55 II.

Best regards. Deiota

Hi again!

I have a Pratika old camera but I lost the Ocular lens. I was wondering if you know where I can buy one, since I've searched here in Portugal but I simply can't find it!

Best regards!

Why would you want to put that old Praktika camera back in service? I traded mine in many years ago for a Canon T70. Well anyhow you can find this old camera on-line for just a few dollars. Last one I saw the bid price was £2.50.

It's a relly old one! It's pretty good and ancient!

I'd like to put it back to work, just for fun!

I won't sell my Canon EOS 300 (film) either!

Best regards,


Deiota

Well I did trade in my T90, 3 lenses, numerous filters etc when I purchased my 300D. Figured that I couldn't be bother with a film camera any more. Although it cost me a ton of $ on my trade-in theres no regrets. Since I spend a lot of time on the computer, digital was a natural tie in. Besides people would hate to see me come to visit with my 35mm projector and screen. Just wondering what photography will look like in the year 2020?:?

Yes, all have manual zooms and autofocus on DSLR's.

It is actually much better than using button zooms on the camera.

Much faster and precise.

Hello!

I've seen some memory cards for the EOS Rebel XT and I'm considering on buying the Compact Flash. Is the Microdrive better that CF?

Then, I've seen some Kingston CF but with writing speed different! (1,5 mb/s and the other 5,2 mb/s). Will I notice the difference, so much? Both are 1 GB.

Thanks a lot!
