Very nice shots. I have technically used film with those crappy disposables! :v: I'd like to try developing my own film, hopefully if I get into Uni I'll get a good shot at it. I picked digital because its such a convenience, but there's no denying film has a certain charm with its look you can't get with digital.
I do! [img_thumb]http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x192/killerelf12/IMAG0019.jpg[/img_thumb] There be my camera, Vivitar 220/SL. And about half my lenses for it. Also have another body of that camera, an Olympus, and a broken Mamayia at home. With the rest of my lenses, flashes, etc. Wish I had a digital for convenience though. No idea how to develop, nor do I have somewhere to do so, so it takes quite some time to actually get my pictures...

I agree absolutely, some film photos have a sheen you can't achieve digitally.[/QUOTE] I use snapfish to get my stuff developed. I haven't personally seen the prints, but you do get a digital version included. Not the full resolution, but acceptable in quality. My parents have been getting the physical prints, and I'd think they would know if it was shit quality, and they'd tell me.
to be honest, i wish i still used film. when i was in school we had to use film, and i just loved developing the film and each individual picture :buddy:
There's a rather poor selection of film in my town, and the developing services are fucking terrible. Apart from those two disadvantages, shooting film is an awesome experience and with the insane prices on DSLRS and accesories (I swear I've seen D3000s being sold for something like 1000 dollars, I haven't seen any lenses yet) film is a great option and maybe the only alternative to get a SLR built like a tank and good lenses over here.

IMO film gives a surreal feeling to the image, its better for it
What are some of the advantages of film other than the unique feeling you get with the image?
Well if you really want to pixelpeep then there's a slightly higher resolution with some film, higher dynamic range, and then of course there's awesome grain, unlike digital noise, and nigga nothing beats black and white film. Also it's relatively cheap to get a professional body and lenses in comparsion to a DSLR.
Everything just looks better in film, it's a fact. I used 16mm tri-x reversal film in film school, pretty sure the camera was an Arriflex [editline]9th March 2011[/editline] Also, I have a Kodak Brownie Bull's-Eye Camera, but it only takes Kodak 620 film and I can't find it :C
bopie, how do you scan your images so well? I need to get my two rolls processed and I just keep putting it off. Two rolls of 200 Kodak Elite Chrome.
to be honest i just drop off my rolls and ask for a CD back V:v:V [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/steveotto/5415367763/meta/]Looking at the exif, I guess it shows how they scanned.[/url]
I'm afraid to ask for a CD. Knowing that they only hold 600Mbs, I feel like they will give me lower quality versions.
I still get the negatives, I just haven't gotten around to buying a scanner. I get 10 images at about 5mb each on a single CD, next time I'll ask if they could bump it up.
Yep, love it. Film is still used hugely by professional photographers for its gorgeous results if used correctly. I know of a photographer for an Australian BMX magazine that shoots exclusively with Large Format film - shit takes skill. I personally stick with 35mm on my Pentax MX.

I only use film for my photo class at school. We have to develop the film and prints ourselves, and it’s terribly time consuming because there’s about 6 film tanks, and 10 enlargers, 4 of which done really work, for a 30 kid class. It's awesome getting to do every step of the process ourselves.
ok, here's a wall of photos of mine :v: I pretty much exclusively use film, except when I'm doing assignments in which case I do a mix of film and digital 9can't risk fucking it up) [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5345818949/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5122/5345818949_39b64389a5.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5345818949/]table and chair[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5346442146/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5164/5346442146_872a4a56b9.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5346442146/]the light and the carpark[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5345875943/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5128/5345875943_fc7af4f4e4.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5345875943/]permits only[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5346547374/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5087/5346547374_40c97677fe.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5346547374/]reload[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5243201891/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5082/5243201891_63948f917c.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5243201891/]crooked bus[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5257182424/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5210/5257182424_80c9bce096.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5257182424/]changing lanes[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5305734657/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5089/5305734657_b2e30e3a76.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5305734657/]QV1.2[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5430551676/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5011/5430551676_34ae99cc56.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5430551676/]glass and water[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5430553928/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5058/5430553928_5105289406.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5430553928/]off in the distance[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/jhaslehurst/]jhaslehurst[/url], on Flickr [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5396186086/][img]http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5136/5396186086_884fa245ee.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/jhaslehurst/5396186086/]Daytime Praise &amp;

I went shopping for some earphones just now and the store had a Buy two get three thing going for some 200 Asa color film so I just bought them. I recently also bought a Pentax ME Super :D Film is really fun actually. It makes you think about composition more than with digital. Plus the equipment is very cheap(excluding buying film and getting it developed) I'd say it's a must to try if you like photography

Wow! Bopie....your medium format ones are amazing!! Is your camera autofocus? And what 120 film do you use?
[QUOTE=moore123;28517518]Wow! Bopie....your medium format ones are amazing!! Is your camera autofocus? And what 120 film do you use?[/QUOTE] Pentax 67. It's a full manual camera, not even metered. I use my 5D to get the settings, then match the settings on the 67. I shoot Kodak Ektar 100, and Fuji Pro 800. My lens is the Takumar SMC 105 f/2.4. I think I paid like $600 for the whole setup.

want to get back into film but im poor as fuck.

It was a sears-specific model but it's nice and has some more lenses to play with. I'm fascinated with old film cameras, I always stop at antique shops and dig through their selection. Sometimes Goodwills have something neat, but 90% of the time they'll just have crap 1990's generic plastic point and clicks some stuff from the other day looking at this- cost $65 at the shop, will try bartering later. The 28-70 lens is jammed so you can only zoom about 35-55, pissed me off. Comes with a wire trigger, and I love that leather [img]http://gyazo.com/c7711effae8c8080991251c0cb8d79a1.png[/img] bought this little bugger for $2, I just need the film.
