About to take my Canon AV1 backpacking. Because it's lighter than my 7D more than anything, but I still love using film. I shoot on Fuji Provia mainly, but starting to shoot on Kodak Portra to save costs

Haven't been doing much with 35mm film, but have gotten back into shooting medium format with my Hasselblad kit. The simplicity of the camera is a nice break from digital.

I've often thought about getting one of the Voightlander Bessa cameras. My first 35mm was a Konica rangefinder and I always enjoyed shooting with that.


Megapixels and high ISO are a digital photographers heroin. Once you have a little, you just want more and more. It doesn't stop until your bank account is run dry.

The Bessa 4a is what I am aiming to get before the year ends. I usually use a Spotmatic or Nikkormat. 70% of what I shoot is film. Got a bit bored with digital. The rewarding part of film for me is getiing the composition and exposure right, with out having to check it on the LCD. Now I don't get it 100% of the time, but still I'd say I have more keepers now that I am very mindful of my shots.

Since my T2i has been back and forth to the Canon repair shop for weeks due to a front focusing problem, I dug out my old Leica M3 and shot a roll. I'm waiting for the processing now.

After getting used to the T2i, going back to a TOTALLY manual system was a shocker. And, with a finite number of shots on a roll it reminded me how 'casual' I am with taking tons of shots in digital and just weeding out the ones I don't want to keep. Digital can make you lazy.

Sorry to hear about your T2i having front focusing issue. Can you develop your film from Costco and ask for DVD option? I'm curious as to how great the film images are when digitized. The IQ is supposed to rival D3X!

edit: on second thought I'm not even sure if Costco has that service any more. But it should be valid for any photo shops that gives you digital copy of film development.

Grabbed myself an R3A last summer with the 50 Nokton and 90 APO Lanthar. As for film I've used Tri-X, Illford XP2, and BW400CN for B&W. I've decided to stick with BW400CN, Tri-X was to much scratch at the labs and XP2 was to inconsistent for me.

Currently loaded is some Ektar 100 which I'm kinda jazzed to see how it comes out.

I shoot a lot with a Holga :) I much prefer it to the hipstamatic iphone shots. I do fantasize about a Hasselblad on occasion.

I still shoot and develop lots of film. I shoot various B&W films, and have a stock of a few hundred rolls in the freezer (mainly APX-100). And E6 too, but I save those until I have about 50 to process, so I can save money by getting the 5L chemicals kit.

Cameras are mainly Leica M2, M6, CL, and a bunch of Olympus gear including an OM4Ti and a trio of OM2ns. Got a couple of Bessas too - an R3A and an R4A, but I'm not using them much these days. Also shoot a Bronica ETRSi occasionally.
