I've been gathering some gear to shoot a bit of film this spring/summer. I thought I'd share the size comparison. The old camera: Canon 80D w/135L. The new camera: Yashica FX-D w/135 DSB. My how times have changed.

The FX-D cost me $80 and came with a YUS 28mm f/2.8, and a DSB 50mm f/1.9. I picked up the 135 for $10. I like the FX-D so much I just ordered another one. Backup, y'know!

EDIT:
Forgot to add that I got a SunPak flash, and two Yashica flashes in the deal, plus a Yashica 2X TC. 580EX II works on the FX-D. Yashica CS-201 and CS-220 work just fine on the 80D.

even medium format gear is no longer so 'monstrous' in comparison

My addition to the thread. I just added this 1971 Zenit B ($20ish +shipping) to my lineup to shoot some rolls of film. I'm 1.5 rolls in. I will send them out to be developed when I finish the second roll.

Just curious.... Who are you using for processing/printing/sc​anning your film. I plan to give TheDarkRoom.com a try.

On the recommendation of another member here, I plan to try theFINDlab.com for my first 2 rolls.

I'll meet you back here to compare notes after processing.

Wilt, shouldn't you really have the Topcon on the left, with the OM1n in the middle? Then at least you would have then in correct chronological order. That OM1 was after all considered to be tiny in comparison to the 35mm SLRs that had gone before. The DSLR body, if you remove the L bracket that it seems to be sitting on, is not significantly wider or taller than the 60's vintage Topcon. I don't know if it is that much thicker either, at least if you remove the finger frip area at the front of the body.

Again when comparing lenses of similar focal length and aperture, yes the modern AF/IS enabled lenses are quite a bit larger and heavier, but then they also contain quite a bit more stuff in them too. All that added technology has to go somewhere.

I also started out using my dad's hand me down old Praktica Nova, with the Meyer 50mm ƒ/2.8, and then moved to the much smaller Pentax ME Super in 1980 when I was 16, having done well in my school exams.

Yahbut...I wanted to emphasize a conventional sized SLR vs a dSLR, rather than contrast the compact SLR to the dSLR.

My first is the second on the right. I'm still using it. In 2016 I received as birthday gift digital camera which looks similar to the camera on the left.
Same brand, same everything, just FF digital sensor instead of film channel.
I could use all of the lenses on cameras shown on the picture, plus digital one. No crop factor.

Lens from sixties on one of these film cameras:

Again, not only cameras are similar in size and shape from made in fifties up to now made.
They work exactly same way.

I just got my first two rolls back and was happy with the results. They emailed me when they got the rolls of film with an estimated date I would receive the scans. Today I got the scans (a day ahead of schedule).

What resolution of images came back from the scan? Scans that come with film processing are ordinarily very poor resolution, resulting only in about 2MPixel files which are usable only to print 4" x 6" prints.

The standard scans from The FIND Lab are 8" on the short side, and you can get up to 16" on the short side. I've never tried printing my photos from them, but I would guess I could pull off an 8x10 print.

Are you saying that the resolution is 8" * 300 ppi, or 2400 pixels on the short side? and 16" x 300 ppi or 4800 pixels on the long side?

If so, I am impressed...at what price?

8" at 300dpi or 2035 pixels on the short side (for 35mm film) according to their website. $12 for process and scan and for an extra $2 they give you feed back on metering and technique. I usually spring for the $14 one and I am very happy with the results.

They give you a variety of options. For 35mm film, you can get anything from 2035x3035 up to 4492x6774. I opted for 3047x4547 and the quality was excellent.
