Hi Guys,
I know this is a Canon Digital SLR Forum, but I was just wondering how many of you still regularly shoot with Film Camera. In fact I have ordered a Voigtländer Bessa R3A with 40mm f/1.4 lens to have a try.
If you do still shoot film camera, which one are you using.
Cheers,

I shoot with my Elan 2e quite a bit still. I've got piles of Fuji B&W slide film that I've been burning through.


My camera says Canon and goes clickity clickity click.

I still use my Canon EOS 3 sometimes for B&W work.

Nearly bought myself a Bessa with the 40mm a few years ago, but couldn't really justify the expense.

For me it is the Canon T90, my camera bag has both that and my 350d plus a selection of FD and EF lenses in it.

The T90 does get used more than the 350d though.

Don't knock it unless you have tried it!

Yep.. Still use my EOS 3 quite a bit.

I love taking it with me when I work with models. They always get a kick out of it, and it's just so funny to see how people react as if they have never even heard of film before :P

Especially since digital photography is still only about one decade old.
Absolutely love the ADOX CMS 20 film for B&W work. Anyone who has not tried it yet, should do so. I have to send it out of the country to get it developed, but it is worth it. Nothing I have ever seen (film or digital) gives a sharper and cleaner image.

I shoot about 25-35% film, about evenly split between 35mm and 6x7.

The 35mm is (mostly) a Canon EOS 620, although there's a few manual focus SLRs and rangefinders thrown in there for fun.

The 6x7 is a Mamiya RB67 Pro-S.

If you're thinking about it, consider doing your own B+W processing as well. It's much easier than it sounds, and is really quite rewarding.

I've got some cameras, some lenses, and some lights. You can see how I use them at:

C&C on any of my shots is always welcomed!

I still shoot my AE1p but only black and white since I never learned to develop color. BW is easy and cheap.

If I can have my own darkroom, I can almost guarantee a 50/50 split between film and digital for myself. B&W film is fun and rewarding.

As it is now, I shoot with a T2 Rebel (rather want to upgrade it to a 1 or Elan) and about 10% film.

I recently got a 650 (bought for the 50mm 1.8 mk1 lens attached to it) that doesnt use an IR LED for film indexing, so I'm going to try and get some IR film to use with it. Hope it doesn't start another obsession.

I couldnt even imagine spending time shooting film anymore. I think it would be a step backwards, putting me at a disadvantage. The ability to preview images with a DSLR has become invaluable to me, allowing adjustments in composition and exposure instantly.

Please dont get me wrong about the process of film and developing, its a beautiful thing but its old. I cherish the memories of time spent in the darkroom but I feel that this time, in this day and age, would be better spent learning photoshop (the new darkroom).

If you want to read something good, there are three books "The Camera", "The Negative" and "The Print" by Ansel Adams that are definately worth reading.

I have at least 20 film cameras and still enjoy them. You can pick them up at such a fraction of their original price and of course they are ALL FULL FRAME!


6D, 5D, 7D, Eos R and too many lenses, flashes and aux. gear to list!:cool:
