I have alot of trouble with the SLR cameras. I had hoped to go fully
digital, but my administration said no, and the kids really do love the
darkroom stuff. My classes are so large now that I can barely get
through the semester giving them each a little taste of darkroom
techniques. The cameras are cheap and break easily; also I think the
kids are too hard on them. I have no solution, but continue to muddle
along with cameras in the shop all the time. Some kids bring their own.
