    I'm interested in film photography but sorta intimidated by it. I'm so used to seeing (and deleting) photos on digital cameras immediately and knowing I can fix my settings if I have to, the finality of film seems daunting.

    I mostly shoot on film, it's fun. I've got like 10 rolls cause my battery died on me in Iceland but no shops were open. But yeah. Super fun.

    I haven't shot on film in forever and it makes me sad. When I did I mostly did landscapes and then more abstract stuff mixing things like solarization, double negatives, stencils, and chemical painting.

    i've messed around with destroying film by soaking it in windex and things like that, but i'll have to check out some of those other processes

    Sometimes when going on road trips I'll buy a disposable camera. But for a period of time I had a Pentax K1000 that my dad had given me. I later sold it to a friend so she could use it for her college photography class. This was one of my favorite photos I had taken with it using B&W film.

    It's a bit daunting but fun to learn once you get the basics down. :-)

    what's everyone's favorite film? i've been shooting a ton of kodak gold lately, and it's so simple... but it looks great.

    I was always partial to Ilford or Arista film. I refused to use anything outside of Ilford Pearl paper though. Such a clean look to it, never ran into any stupid little problems with the paper, and it keeps so well.

    Shitty quality but my scanner doesn't work and they're matted and hung on my wall.

    I started my photography with film, used a Canon AE-1 Program. Haven't done it in a minute because part of the convenience of it all was having a dark room at my high school and getting my film developed at a pharmacy was getting expensive. I ended up getting a DSLR as a result, but I think I was a better photographer with film; I had to think about what i was doing more. Thinking about getting back to it.

    I can post some of my works later today. Use a Pentax. Been working at my dark room for about two years aquiring things here and there. Moving into a new place this fall and will be looking for a place that will accommodate my needs, for that.

    I've been kicking around the idea of making my own dark room, but I'm in college right now, so I'm basically moving every year. Not the best time, but I'm still thinking maybe something simple.

    So I don't really know anything about photography, but wanted to see what people thought of this camera or if you guys would have any similar cameras you'd recommend?

    I don't know a ton about non SLR cameras, but I would find out how much the settings and photos can be manipulated in that camera and how much of those features you want out of it before buying it. Looks like it's p high end point and shoot and that it yields good photos though, but it also looks pricey to me. I do want to reiterate i don't know a ton about non SLR cameras.

    Anyone here use a 35mm point and shoot? I've been looking into getting one recently. At the moment I'm leaning towards an Olympus XA/XA2, but I wondered if anyone had any suggestions for a decent automatic camera. I'm not too fussed about having full control over settings.

    i have an Olympus Stylus... not sure how important zooming is to you, but if you can find one with a fixed lens, it'll greatly improve the quality of the shots.
