It's "only" £2200, and lenses typically cost around a grand.

If there was somewhere in Dubai that sold, and more importantly, could process, the film, I'd be sorely tempted.
Such old style photography has something very charming. Personally i'm not a (good) action photographer, most of my shots are with tripod and preparation. I started photography with DSLRs but i imagine it killed some of the feel of older techniques. And if every failed expose sets you back 40$ you will frame and meter with exquisite care
