That's quite a UFO in the second photo. That should have never passed inspection.

My thoughts exactly. That's a crop but it's visible as can be just from looking at the whole image in lightroom. There's a dark mark in the upper left corner of the first full size photo that I don't have any idea what it could be.

Any recommendations for some basic cheap starter film to play with? Standard 35mm, some colour some b+w.

Most start at 10-12 AUD (~8USD) per roll. Even expired film is fairly expensive here in AU. What's the gamble rate with expired film? About half useful?

Expired film is tricky because depending on how it was stored. Heat is horrible for film so even an unexpired roll of film that was left in a car for day in summer can be completely ruined. Likewise, 20 year old film that has been kept in a freezer all it's life will work just fine with a touch of overexposure.

I would recommend buying fresh film when you start out just to eliminate as many variables as possible. Kodak Ultramax 400 or Fujifilm Superia 400 are both great starter films that shouldn't be too expensive. In the United States Fujifilm Superia and Fujifilm C200 are the cheapest films available, but that probably varies by country. For black and white, Kentmere 400 is dirt cheap (at least in the states) and is pretty nice. Ilford HP5 or Kodak Tri-x are great but they're more expensive.

I actually quite like the results I've had from Kodak ColorPlus so I'd be happy to recommend it as a good budget film. I shot a couple of slightly expired rolls (2-3 years) I found in a cut-price store (stored on a regular shelf) and they turned out just fine, but you just never know, and like Scott says it introduces more variables into the process. If you're looking for dependable, predictable results then expired film isn't the way to go.

Generally, Kodak is said to produce warmer tones compared to Fuji. I haven't shot with Fuji since getting back into film - Kodak is easier to get hold of around here, I live somewhere with a lot of warm colours to begin with, and I've been happy with my results so I haven't gone looking for anything else, really. Might be worth keeping in mind when choosing your film, though.

On the Black and White front, I can't add anything to what Scott said. Kentmere is a classic student film (and paper) brand. I've just dropped my first rolls of Black and White film for about a decade off at the lab - three rolls of Tri-X and a roll of HP5, with the latter being a bit cheaper here.

Might as well post a couple of pictures while I'm here. The first is from the roll which got me excited about film again ... I used it to photograph a family gathering, and was just really pleased with how the results came out and it made me want to use more film, which bit by bit I started doing. The second was taken by a dear friend I went to visit at the end of last year. It's the first picture of me taken with my M4. Both are ColorPlus scanned at home on a V600.

I second Kodak Color Plus 200 for a cheap color film. In the U.S. I've bought it recently for $3-4 per 36 ex roll. For bw, Kentmere and Fomapan are currently under $4 per roll. I don't care for either film, but if you're starting out, they aren't bad.

Some really excellent photos on this thread. Wish I had time to look and comment on all of them.

I got a Canon AE-1 somewhere around 1975, taken a ton of photos with it through the years. I recently bought an Epson 550 scanner and started on scanning all my negatives. Got a few really good photos and a bunch of junk, but it all brings back good memories.

Anyway, last year my step-grandson asked me to take photos of him and his prom date, on a whim I bought a roll of film, I think Fuji, but not sure and took some of the photos with my AE-1. Below are an original and a touched up copy. All the photos really had a pinkish tone that I had to remove.

My kids bought me a Patterson tank, a dark bag, and a set of chemicals for Christmas, gonna start shooting B&W and trying my hand at developing my own.

When the Union Pacific Big Boy came through Oklahoma I bought a roll of Ilford 400 for the event, then finished the roll with my dog Katie.

Canon AE-1, first photo with an off brand 28-135 lens at 135, second with the 50mm lens that came with the camera.

I wanted to see Big Boy so bad when it was in Chicago, but didn't get a chance.

There's just so much more scope with film G.A.S. with all the different kinds of camera from over the years. Two very different ones there. You have the smallest Medium Format negative (645) and about the largest (6x9) in the Texas Leica. That's worth considering as you'll get half the amount of pictures off of a roll with the Fuji compared to the Mamiya - but of course the negatives will contain more. They are also different styles of camera - reflex (with either WLF or Prism finder) vs. rangefinder. Despite the negative size gulf, I imagine the cameras are possibly quite similar in size given their different design characteristics.

What are you likely to be photographing with the new camera? Would it be similar to the photograph you posted? I like it, by the way, very much a quintessential seaside scene.
