Well Folks, A film Forum was requested in this thread, http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=727213
As well as a great ongoing film image thread here. http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=722089
Pekka has worked very hard to bring this forum (POTN) to us, and it just wouldn't be fair to ask for another forum right now. Anyway, It looks like a dedicated Film Forum is not going to happen right away, if ever, so I thought I'd do the next best thing. Film shooters please show your support for your passion here. You just never know what may happen in the future if interest in this grows. :)
Talk about Dark Room Technique, favorite film, etc. Feel free to link a url to any specific image in the "Post Your Film Shots" here for discussion.

Hi, I'll join in :)

I use both film and digital although I feel my heart lies in film, most likely because I shoot mostly in b/w. I have a couple of EOS 5 bodies although I think one is about to give up, but I have my eye on an EOS 1.

I even shot a roll of film on my old AE1P the other day!

I generally use HP5, sometimes Ilford 3200 (how much grain!) and I print at home.

I also have a Cambo 5x4 camera which I used to use for product shots but would love to use more if I ever find the time.

Lizzy

Still have an Eos 10, Eos 5, Eos 1 and Eos 1nHS. And a Rollei 35T and Minox 35GL (IIRC)

There's a film in the 1n. Half full.
I keep telling myself I have to shoot filem every once in a while, but somehow it just doesn't happen :p

I also have a Leica V35 Enlarger. I think I'll convert it to a lamp.

This is a good time to buy film equipment, not to sell it....

There is no question film shooters will have to start pooling resources, information, tips, etc. As more and more film products disappear from the market, it is going to require an increasingly high degree of resourcefulness by its supporters.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

Hi Lizzy, While I've never tried Illford's iso 3200 film, I can attest to Kodaks TMAX iso 3200 being a blast to use for indoor street style photography. <---Does that make sense? :lol:
The beauty being no flash required.
I used to use Bronica SQa system for weddings, along with a Canon A2e. That was in another life though. (Long time ago)
More recently I have used Kodak's BW400CN film for B&W stuff. I think it was pretty good. ;)

trix 400 shot at 200 and tmax 3200 shot at 1600 are my main uses. trying to get ahold of some tech pan as ive only shot one roll but that one roll makes me think im shooting MF or LF with the AMAZING resolution it has.

btw, anyone know any secret places for kodachrome that it wont cost 20-40 per roll like ebay???

We might have some left at my store. Would you be interested in buying it from me if I were to buy them for you?

Yes, and I think it's a shame. There is a lot of good 35mm and medium-format gear out there collecting dust in closets, but capable of excellent pictures.

I'm going to work this afternoon, I'll let you know if we still have some left. *Crosses fingers*

We have a few customers that are Kodachrome fiends. They only shoot Kodachrome.

I just sold my Bronica SQa and 3 lenses and immediately regretted it......funny thing was I sold it to a guy who had recently sold his and regretted it so much he had to buy another one!

I've not used TMAX 3200 but I'll definately give it a go. My main thing is available light portraits. I do like the 3200 film it's just a bit of a pain to process, I get a bit bored sitting in the darkroom for that long. I love film photography and hand printing but not film processing (except for taking it off the spiral ;) )

I still shoot a lot of film for b/w, did some today of my daughter in the park. Would be much easier if she wasn't so fed up of me taking photos of her :)

Lizzy
