Hey guys, I just sold off most of my equipment due to financial crisis, but I still want to be in the photography game! I would like some help choosing good lenses for portraits when using a canon film SLR (EOS 3) or 5d since they have the same full frame effect. Some of my limitations are going to be lower ISO films, 400 or below probably, because of concerns about excessive noise. First is this something reasonable to be worried about? So far I have only shot iso 100 or iso 200 film with this EOS 3 and have not noticed noise. I also imagine that it would be more pleasant to look at, but I don't know yet.
Second, I realised that most of my photography was taken with the 17-40 L when I used lightroom to see the distribution of my shots. This was on a T1i, so with this new lack of crop in mind, what should I replace this range with? The qualifications are : price, low light ability, and it working on full frame.
I do still have my 430 ex ii and 50mm f1.4, and which have helped me take photos in dark clubs and stuff, so maybe that will be able to help me get by with perhaps a less wide open lens.
Another question I have is, what kinds of films should I buy? I am really not too familiar with the different brands, although I have tried Fujifilm Superia 200 and it looks nice. I would like recommendations for black and white films, where to get them developed, and colour film recommendations as well please .
Thank you everyone for being on this forum and helping people like me with their questions.
