    Another film user here.
    I currently have Nikon F75 with AF 28-80G and AF 70-300G(yeah, I know, cheap glass but still better than some digi point & shoot...)
    I use mainly Sensia 100 for my slides and if my wealth allows, Velvia 50.

    And about autofocus...It could be faster but I have not lost a shot because of bad autofocus yet... Almost any SLR with AF and almost any glass is fast enought for shooting planes. Then of course if you want to do low light action shooting, this might not be the case. But in ~normal sunlight etc. All AF SLR's focus fast(when compared to any point & shoot). Some of you that use pro gear might find it amusing that I use word "fast" even with very low end SLR's. I used a point & shoot before...after that any SLR _is_ fast.

    Not sure about low-end Canon gear, but "normal" stuff (eg. Elan 7E) and higher all have it...

    Are there any Canon's which have this feature?
    It really is a problem, but I suppose it can be avoided by refocusing quickly often enough. I think I will try out the canon 3000V tomorrow - I don't really see the difference between it and the 300v?
    All I basically need is a camera with quick autofocus.
    Thanks,

    I think the F80/N80's cheaper than the F100.

    I use Kodachrome 64 slide film and Fuji Provia 100F slide film. I have a Nikon N70, N80 and F100 and have the option on the F100 to have continuous focus if I choose to. They focus system on that camera is really fast also. Here is a little information on the focusing system for the F100:

    Focusing screen: B-type BriteView clear Matte screen III, interchangeable with optional E-type screen with grid

    Autofocus: TTL phase detection, Nikon Multi-CAM1300 autofocus module; Detection range: EV -1 to EV +19 (ISO 100, at normal temperature)

    AF Servo: Single Servo AF (S), Continuous Servo AF (C), Manual focus (M); Focus Tracking with Lock-On™ automatically activated in subject’s status in Single Servo AF (S) or Continuous Servo AF (C)

    Focus area: One of five focus areas can be selected

    AF Area mode: Single Area AF and Dynamic AF (Dynamic AF Mode with Closest Subject Priority is available)

    Focus lock: Focus is locked by pressing Focus-Lock button or lightly pressing shutter release button in Single Servo AF

    Metering system: TTL full-aperture exposure metering system; three metering systems selectable (limitations with lens used): 10 segment, 3D Matrix Metering, Center-Weighted Metering (75% of the meter’s sensitivity concentrated on the 12mm dia. circle) and Spot Metering (4mm dia. circle, approx. 1% of entire frame)

    Metering range: 3D Matrix Metering: EV 0-21; Center-Weighted Metering: EV 0-21; Spot Metering: EV 3-21 (at normal temperature, ISO 100, 50mm f/1.4 lens)

    Any film slr users out there?

    Hi,
    yesterday I shot my first ever roll of slide film. It is in a lab now being developed and scanned
    What I would like to know however is if there is an slr out there capable of continuous focus? I used a borrowed one yesterday, and it couldn't track a moving object and refocus at all really.
    I know Cannon and Nikon both have a system where if the camera senses movement, it will move to ai-servo, but it is impossible to engage this! Even just trying it out outside, I focussed on something close to me and them zoomed to a further object and it was out of focus even with the shutter depressed!!!
    Thanks alot,
    Ari
