If you can buy a nice simple, reliable film SLR with a manual focus 50mm lens on eBay for $100 its a good way to learn about photography. It's making a virtue out of necessity.

Better surely than using your auto-everything iPhone to post your picture on Faecebook on a daily basis?

You may think a D3100 is cheap, but to a teenager its a couple of months in Burger King.

False economics.

Film and processing cost money and nobody says you have to buy a new d3100
