What Style of Camera Should New Film Photographers Get?

Film photography has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years, and there are literally hundreds of used film camera models available to choose from, which can lead to a bit of decision paralysis. So, what kind of film camera is right for you? This great video discusses three different kinds of film cameras, their pros and cons, and which is the right kind for you. 

Coming to you from John Branch IV Photography, this helpful video discusses the pros and cons of using a point and shoot, basic SLR, or advanced SLR for film photography. When it comes to digital, a lot of us like to take advantage of all the advanced features modern DSLRs and mirrorless cameras offer, but when it comes to film, it is worth thinking about what you really need, particularly if you are just shooting film for fun. I personally shoot with a Rollei 35SE. It has no autofocus or any of the other features you would expect in a modern camera, but it is extremely portable, has a nice lens, and is just fun to shoot with, which is what really matters to me at the end of the day when it comes to film. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
