What you need is a SLR camera, another longer zoom lens, and some film. The article will tell you what to use. 100 speed film is great to use for stuff like this. if you have any questions E mail me ok?

ASA 200 speed film needs half the light required by ASA 100 film, but twice the light needed by 400 speed film. The amount of light is controled by aperture and speed.
