1 - CameraLook for an SLR - Pentax, Olympus, Canon or Nikon - with a prime lens - no zoom - on ebay.
A full manual camera might be a bit of challenge, so one with auto exposure and auto focus to start.
The Nikon F100 is a great camera but it has increased in price, you will probably be able to find a decent SLR with a prime lens, very likely a 50mm 1.8 - for around 40£.
2 - Filmyou have 3 choices for film
- B&W : only really if you want to develop your on film which is easier that you think and pretty cheap
- Negative/Print : Great tolerance to exposure, Portra 400 is a great choice. Easy to get develop at boots or tesco.
- Positive/Slide : very fine details, great for landscape but dearer than negative and exposure need to be spot on.
Eventually to go further you will have to try and develop your on B&W, it's fun and once you are setup can be pretty cheap.
3 - Process/ScanningYou will need to find a lab that those process and scan - prices vary a lot -, eventually you might want to invest in a scanner. The one that everybody uses is the Epson V700, 350£. It scans 35mm, medium format and 4x5.
If you start to fill serious about film photography just save the money and buy the V700, you won't regret it.
