    Hi everyone. I'm in the market for a new SLR camera. I'm just a beginner and learning as I go. I have my eye on the Nikon F65(N65) and the Pentax MZ-7(ZX-7). What are your thoughts on these two cameras. Thanks in advance. :)

    Somebody recommended the F70 to me. I think that is the model that is very light, and also has a pop up flash which is very convenient for when you don't want to bring a big add-on flash unit.

    Camera stores in HK?

    Fellow HK BCers, do you know where in HK I can get good customer service, honest opinions, and great prices from a camera store? I know TST is not the place as they are out to con the tourist.

    There is a shop in MongKok recommendd to me but of course being me I didn;t write the name down and I forgot. That shop has been around for many, many years.

    There is a camera repair shop in TST near Miramar hotel. Again I forgot the name. :(

    Nikon F65 is a great camera. Don't overlook a good tripod though, as it really sharpens the images if you don't have steady hands.
