-Official FILM Thread-

Hey Guys

So i thought i would make this thread since i know a few of you guys like to shoot film. My buddy just gave me an old Nikon 35mm film camera and i just went and bought a roll of Portra 400 that ill put through it later today when the light is nice. Im pretty sure im going to become obsessed with shooting film just for fun now

So i thought we could use this thread to talk about film that we like to shoot with, cameras, etc and post strictly film shots that we take...

<3 Ev

Good thread idea.

What's the best way to get your film photo's on the computer, DSLR? The photo scanners we have at school only scans up to 8.5x11.

i just plan on getting my stuff done at costco. apparently the scans are decent quality and it isnt very expensive. since im really only going to be shooting for fun im not too worried abt getting the absolute best quality...

I have a Rebel K2 that came with my original Digital Rebel that I'll shoot with every now and then but I don't use it very often. I've never really understood what makes a good film camera better than others. Does it not boil down to the glass and type of film?

im not sure either...the camera my buddy gave me can honestly be found for abt $20 on KEH and its still quite nice. has autofocus, spot metering, etc. honestly i never even thought film cameras had metering for the longest time haha

im sure a lot of it comes down to glass/film tho. i looked up photos taken by the camera i have on flickr and they look really nice when paired with a good lens..

this is the camera. a Nikon N8008s

As far as 35mm slr goes, it all boils down to glass, film, and dark room techniques.

That was shot with kodak provia with a 35L on a canon elan IIe. I like the provia, looking for some new film to try.

haha its not that its better. for me its that ive basically only shot digital and to take a photograph and not know what it looks like right at that moment is kinda exciting haha i went out earlier and just shot random stuff and it was a different feeling than shooting digital...idk i cant explain it but its cool

You're right, I need to get used to it, since I'll be doing what will feel like hundreds of millions of these in the next 3 years.

Stoked for it, seņor.
