So does anyone here still use the old fashioned 35mm film camera's? I just found a great deal on an old cannon with a bigger zoom lense and I was just curious is anyone else still used the old fashioned technology for taking pics? Thanks all and have a nice day, Mike.

Sold my film gear to help pay for my dslr several years ago. I do sometimes wish I had it for certain things (although I think my wife has an old nikkormat and some lenses in a case somewhere). They'll still work just like always. Digital is just so nice because you can do all your darkroom work on the computer.

I still have my film slr camera. It's great for black and white photography.

And with it being fully manual it means I have to slow down and take time to think the shot through instead of just snapping away.

I think it's just my personality tho. I enjoy lots of older items that are rarely seen these days. (fountain pens, pipes, straight razors and of course trad bows and film cameras)

Basil, I think that that is the main reason for me also,lol. I have a pocket camera that is digital. But I was thinking the same thing about slowing down with it. I find that sometimes when I get the pics uploaded, that they are not as good as I thought they were going to be. I also figured that with the film, when I get it developed, I can also get the pics put onto dvd so that I can still put them on to the computer. So in my lil brain I was thinking I would have the best of both worlds. Thanks guys, Mike.

Sold all of my film cameras.  I kept one around for a long time, but it just gathered dust.  I haven't had a TBM cover photo that was shot on film in a loooooong time.  The last 10 or so were all shot with digital.

Where I get my film developed they always put them on a cd for me.

One thing to look at though is the film iso speed. Lower numbers are less grainy but require more light. The higher numbers are best for low light situations but I find they can be a very grainy when enlarged.

It is getting harder to buy film too.
