Which film camera for my buddy's wedding?
6 months ago

My buddy is flying me back from China to shoot her wedding in a month. She's giving me a bit of cash which I will throw towards a long-overdue film camera, as she appreciates film. I've been shooting a manual focus Olympus OM-10 for a few years, but it's time for something serious. Perhaps 25% of the wedding will be shot on film, serious stuff will utilized the DSLR.

I'm looking at the following:

- Contax G2 (small and light)

- Mamiy 6 or 7 (always aspired towards MF)

- Standard Canon SLR (can use my current lenses)

I'm worried that if I go with the Contax or Mamiya, there might be a higher learning curve, which I won't master in time for the wedding (I will only have the camera for 2-3 days before the wedding begins). Whereas a Canon SLR will be 2nd nature. I want something that will last a lifetime and expand my passion for film.

Any other ideas? Thoughts?

Thanks!
