I've been giving some thought to picking up an EOS film body so that I can use my L glass with film.
Any recommendations on what EOS film bodies are worth considering? I've only just started looking but there is a lot of chaff to sort through? I'd be willing to drop a couple hundred or so for the right camera.

the EOS 3

give these links ago. plenty of information out there.

I got my camera from Japan and it works great. I love it. the only issue I have is with my Tamron lenses, which is one of the new 35 1.8 lens that they made which came out last year. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But this camera is 10 years old and all my canon based lenses work with no issues.

The EOS 3 is an amazing camera. You won't regret buying it!

Cheap: Elan 7

Very good: EOS 3

The best: EOS-1v


I have a Rebel 300v, Elan 7e and the EOS 3, EOS 3 is a good step above the others and the only one with spot metering


The Rebel feels cheap compared to the Elan 7

I thought the Elan 7 was fine until I got the EOS 3 (I wanted spot metering) and now the Elan 7 feels cheap :)

(those are 2000 plus bodies)

The EOS 3 looks like a nifty rig. I'll have to give it some serious consideration.
See quite a few EOS 3s on evilbay with a "power booster" are they worth messing with? I don't see much need for 7FPS with film for my normal usage. But knowing me if I got it I'll abuse it :)

My only real reason for it is you can use disposable AA batteries and there is a portrait mode shutter release in the grip. IMHO for what I soot film for 7fps is bad. If I want speed my digital does that much better. I have the grip (power booster) because that was all I could find out there for a good price.

I shoot with 2 1Vs and an Elan 7N. The 1V is built like a tank. Its shutter makes a wonderful sound that I can't describe but it is very satisfying. The Elans are more plasticky and less durable but are newer and have plus style buttons on the back for quick movement of the auto focus point. The 3 is also an excellent choice and appears to be a great compromise between the 2.

Is that 'toned' look the normal look of Ektachrome? Or did the lab get the 'WB' wrong?

That film was super expired. It might be that.

Hello! Is this thread still active? I have been shooting film for about a year and half now and absolutely love, it but I have some questions in regards to pushing film and getting the results I want.

I suspect this thread will be active as long as film is available, and I understand there are new film manufacturers sprouting up. ;-)a
Welcome here. :-)

We aren't going anywhere. I haven't shot any film since early last year but intend to use up at least some of the film in my fridge this year!! 35mm and especially 120. I sold my entire Bronica system recently but still have my RB67 and Rollei for 120.

I may not be shooting much film now but I follow both film threads.....

I discussed that point with the site owner and Admin years ago. Unfortunately they have been very busy with life in general, and writing code for the forum. I will bring this up again with them though. :-)

Anyone ever touch up a negative?

I am making a silver gel print. I want to paint out a string on a white back ground. From what I can tell painting it out black will work. Any one have input?

I'm finding it less enjoyable to shoot digi these days. I carry my G16 ( Great little camera ) as back up, but am shooting film mainly using the old sunny 16. It feels like photography again.
Shooting with my fed 2 at the moment.
Only a slight crop.
