If you try to focus manually & realise your eyes aren't up to it, the camera is much more accurate.

Also, if you check out a shot on your LCD immediately after taking it & notice detail which your eyes miss when looking at the same scene right in front of you!

Edit: under 40? Don't laugh, you have it coming :lol:;-)a

...you can think back to your excitement of looking through the sparkling surface of the developer and seeing an image "come up". Magic,...simply magic.

...you ended up with a couple of double-exposures of Aunt Gertrude and her dachshund because you forgot to wind the film.

I gave up manual focus long ago, unless I'm in Live View at 10X and have my reading glasses on -?

... you don't use lens caps because they are hard to put on and you've lost them all now anyways.

I remember all of these.

I'm so chronologically endowed that about 8 years ago when moving house, I found a bulk film loader (with film), in the back of the fridge in the garage. I no longer had the film cassettes to load the film :rolleyes:

I still have a couple or rolls of film which were bulk loaded but I have no idea what is in it as I reused the film cases all the time. I would love to send it in but don't know what to tell them as to the type of film.

I found a couple rolls (unshot) with an old camera a couple years ago. I'm sure they're still around somewhere. Probably from 2007.

I'm thinking that mine are from the 70s as I found it in a box of pictures I shot when I was a kid.

I would like to but like I said, the case says some sort of color film but I am sure it's either tri-x or pan-x but it might be color as i was starting to play around with developing color bout that time.
