As some of you will know, i'm working on a 100 strangers project (its exactly what it sounds like -- you approach 100 complete strangers and ask if you can shoot a portrait of them).
Now, I've done all of this round the nice parts of NY -- Mid town, upper east, etc so far.
However, I think it would be fun and v interesting to go to some of the rougher / poorer parts of NY and meet some of the folks there... But I'm not sure I want to be doing that with a 5D3 and 85L....
So I've been having a think about what I could use. My wife has a S95, but it's not ideal for portraits really.
I've been toying with picking up a 5D1 and nifty fifty, but that's still not exactly cheap.
Another option would be to pick up an old canon film camera like an AE1 + 50mm FD lens for around $200.
Been ages since I've shot film, but might be a lot of fun, and I can use it as a prop later on
Even thought about a disposable film camera, but I think that's just getting silly.
Anything other things I should be considering?
Anyone used an AE1? Its rather before my time. I did start on film, but still in the EF era
