FILM camera users
« on: August 21, 2010, 11:04:25 am »
Anyone?
I got a Vivitar 220/SL last week and just paid for a Nikon FM today.
I havent used any yet kasi Im still researching pa on what film to use. I got my cameras for below $50 each. So good deal talaga and my dad said I finally made one right decision in my life, by getting the Nikon FM. He's a film user din kasi pero mas heavy-duty gamit nya lol. I like the Vivitar din kasi marami good feedbacks about it. Im not really into crisp, fine pictures, mas gusto yung medyo grainy, yung mukhang cross-processed pero hindi. And sa film mo lang makukuha yun. Sana may ibang film users pa dito, para mabigyan nyo ako ng tips :)

I used to use film back in college. It's exciting. Basta iba sa digital. Better learn how to develop and enlarge your films if you're serious. Super addicting and fulfilling.  ;D

It's been a while since I logged in to this forum. Anyways, I've a massive collection of prints, pasted on my wall. Taken from daily walks, places I've been to, people I know, people watching.. I never learned how to develop my own film, I really have no time pa kasi to learn. It's an expensive hobby, but I really love it. I feel nostalgic everytime my prints get delivered. Film is not dead.

I want to buy a Nikon F2 or FM as well. Though I probably would not be serious enough to the point of trying to develop my own prints, I'd love to try out film photography, which I think can help me develop my skills for the DSLR.

I have a Minolta XGM, Polaroid SX70, Canon AE-1, Nikon FM, and a Pentax K1000. All were handed down to me my dad who was a photo-enthusiast during the 70s/ till now. I use my Pentax and Minolta the most. With my Polaroid, I buy film from The Impossible Project. It's about $28 per 10 shots so i only use it for special things/ occasion. My film rolls are currently piled up waiting to be processed. The only store that I go to kasi to process it eh stopped doing it na. So I need to find another store that will do a good job. I love using my cameras as a part of my house decor. Guests thinks na it's for display lang, but I let them tinker with it to know that it actually works.
