Anyone still shooting film?

Post Wed Nov 02, 2016 12:30 am


I switched to digital around 2003. As film camera prices dropped I started a collection of SLR cameras made in the period of 1965-1980, manual focus only. I managed to save my Bronica's as well. Every now and then I run a roll of film through one, develop and scan it.
I've been posting my images here a few at a time for years.
I noticed there hasn't been a post here in years. I hope others using film will share their thoughts, post about recent film camera finds, etc.

Hi, Rick!

I have recently gotten back into it - whole hog! I've got a small darkroom set up and just last weekend started doing film processing as well as enlarging. I'm starting to get into more interesting techniques and processes. I'm only dealing with black and white film, at least for now...

See my recent post here http://forum.pbase.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=48264 asking if others are doing darkroom work.

I picked up a Pentax SP1000 (totally clean and working, for $8 on eBay! :D ) and have a couple of nice fast prime lenses and a Tamron 80-210, all manual, that I've been enjoying.

Nice to meet you!

Just noticed this, yes, I've pretty much settled on B&W processed at home for film work, using digital for color work. I have a darkroom that is not set up as well as it could be, but I do some printing to submit work to occasional shows http://www.pbase.com/dw_thomas/exhib_photos. The shift of wedding photographers to digital made it easy to build up a significant kit of Bronica SQ-A gear which I use for my "most serious" work. But over the last ten years I've added a Yashica TLR and two folders (6x6, 6x9) to my medium format gear; I use them all.

(At this moment I am way behind posting some new work from the summer travels which included a dozen rolls of 120 B&W .... any day now!)

For money, most of what I shoot is done with a DSLR, but for fun and art, it's almost all done with film cameras. I particularly like medium-format, but I also own a few 35mm cameras and a large format Crown Graphic, which is loads of fun.

Yes, 100% film since 1986.

Yes my friend. Although I use digital most of the time, my F2 and F are still very busy. lol
