I have a multiple day camping trip planned with my fifth grader and 40+ others, and was considering renting a DSLR to document the whole thing, maybe make a little keepsake book from it. But the best price I saw today to rent a Nikon D50 was $60/day. It wouldn’t take too many days renting before buying makes sense. I’m really looking forward to doing this but not too thrilled about messing with film and scanning it all when I get back. I’ll take a lot of pictures or very few (and miss out), depending on how well-equipped I am.
A little more research is in order, it seems.
