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?
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:

what do you guys think? if you want to see the film / camera I have them in the flickr tags .
I have a film camera, Nikon FE 2, but it requires batteries that I don't have.
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?
Just received my Canon T70, when I get some pictures developed I'll post them.
Hoping my Zenit 11 will arrive soon.
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.
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.
I'm reviving this !
heres some recent shots
what do you think, FP?
Actually most of us film photographers just post in Creative Photography thread right now.
But great shots andy, some are a tad generic, but others are great. What film and camera do you use?
I will head over that ways. Thank you =]
thank you ! :) i took most of them in west point, new york.
I have an '84 Minolta Maxum 7000
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...
My XP2 came out great, I love the grain it has.
i was reading a flickr discusion about c41 b&w last night and most of them preferred the kodak bw400cn, i havnt tried one myself yet i only just used my first roll of colour and i think i fucked up loading a roll of fp4 as it unraveled a bit so it might have been exposed
120/220 sure, easy enough to fuck up. but 35mm... really? it comes in a ready to use canister
it was 120 i was loading
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.
That AE-1 you have a picture of there looks awesome.
I really like cameras with that sort of look.
How much would a roll of film cost to get developed in GBP?
In my country it costs 2 Lt which is approximately 0.51£.
I have an old soviet FED-3 film camera. Haven't used it in ages, though.
I don't have a pic of it, but it looks exactly like this
