    Thanks buddy. 14.99 is a bit expensive to develop the Ilford B&W but I'll try and get it done over the next week :) I've got a 24 shot roll in this baby now, gonna be using it definitely on paddy's day :)
    This one of the 200ASA pushed to 1000



    And here's a medium format one of my sister knitting. Made with a completely manual TLR from the 70's

    That 1000 ASA shot isn't bad at all! I like the grain too. I went to the camera shop today and apparently they do Ilford B&W but it'll take 2 weeks because they must send it away :/ recommend I develop my own?

    I let them put the photos on a cd so I might post some later on.

    Ok got some:

    I disagree with the notion of "no editing because it's film".
    1) When the lab scans it they are essentially editing it, choosing levels/curves for you, what if you don't like the way that they choose those settings?
    2) Saying that you don't edit film 'cause it's film is the same as saying that you wouldn't clean up a recording of an acoustic guitar because it's "acoustic".

    at any rate here's some of mine from the last month:

    another favourite:

    what do you guys think? if you want to see the film / camera I have them in the flickr tags .

    I have never used film before but I found one of these bad boys in my mothers camera stash:



    Apparently it's a quite good compact camera and praised by many famous photographers. Any thoughts?
    I don't know much about shooting in film, but isn't it expensive? Seeing as you can't see the pictures you have taken directly, do you have to develop them or what?

    My grandfather has a 8mm motion camera, and a projector too.
    Too bad it takes so much effort and money to transfer to a readily available digital medium or else I would be all over that camera.

    And the stock, too. I'd have to find someone who sells it.

    Film photography is like nothing you've ever tried if you're a digital only shooter. You have to really think before you press the shutter, and the added pressure of money ontop of the small exposure count really hits you hard. You can get the film developed at most good camera shops or even grocery stores.

    I don't really feel that with 35mm as much as I do medium format. Still a valid point though.

    the "24 exposures that cost you money for every mistake" thing is part of my training exercise when helping out friends. I hand them my D5000 with the screen flipped in so you don't get to review/delete stuff, and use a crappy 128mb card I found so they get about 10 shots in RAW. The fear of mistakes makes them take days to fill the card

    Fortunately, my sisters boyfriend is a former photographer and did everything in film and I think he developed his own photos at home, so maybe I can use his studio.

    Look up some tutorials, you can do B&W with a bottle of chemicals (I forget the name) and black coffee.

    Yeah Fixer was the name :) You can pick up a bottle of that at your LCS from about $15 onwards in terms of quality and quantity.

    I've managed to fix my OM-10 and get hold of a Zenit 11, so you should be seeing some film shots from me soon. I prefer the Zenit 11 however due to the fact that is it completely manual, the meter isn't even coupled. Plus it has more character and a better feel to it.

    But great shots andy, some are a tad generic, but others are great. What film and camera do you use?

    some b&w films use a c41 development process, probably best to use those if you want to shoot b&w without having issues getting it developed

    To be honest I was displeased with the performance of the Ilford XP2 for its price.. Was expecting it to be at least as good as PAN 400, but it wasn't...

    I haven't shot much film before, but I'm really interested in the Canon EOS 3.

    There's one on Ebay for 156.99, and I might get that one.

    Been bidding on Nikon film bodies today and hoping I can get something for under 50. Haven't shot film since I was a kid with a disposable HURRRRR

    Seriously though, I'd really like to try it as it forces you to not be lazy, although I don't really have that problem as I do quite a bit of thinking and tinkering before taking shots.
