What's Your DREAM Film Camera for Every Format? (Don't miss this)

Okay, guys. I have a question for you (if you're smart, you already know what it is)...

Each of us has all sorts of ideas. But sometimes, it's just hard to do something because we get our minds set on something big that requires a bit more gear than we can handle. Other times, the creativity runs dry. But if you've ever been there, for...

Black and White Infrared Photos

Just finished shooting a bunch of side by side slides of Kodak TXP 320 against Rollei 400 IR for a film review. Putting my results together for an upcoming article on Fstoppers, but wanted to poll the group:
What are your thoughts on IR film? Have you shot with it before?
Successes and failures? I know I titled this post "black and...

To Repair or Not to Repair

I came across a Nikon Fn with 50 mm lens for $2.50 at a garage sale. Mechanically, everything is working except the shutter sticks at slower speeds. I asked at the local repair shop for an estimate for basic CLA and it'll run about $150. The camera is quite beautiful and I adore fully mechanical film cameras. Is it worth the $150 for the repair...

Why shoot B&W film? No, seriously...

Disclosure: I'm totally new to shooting film. I just bought my first film camera 3 weeks ago (Rolleiflex 2.8), developed my first 5 rolls of film this week (trying different brands/speeds etc.), and scanned some into the computer with my new Epson v800 just last night. First off; loving the whole process and the Rollei. Even the painful lessons...

Medium Format Advice

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone could lead me in the right direction. I am trying to find a medium format film camera that works for me but I don't have a lot of money to spend right now either. Are there any cameras you would recommend me checking out?

What Film Labs are you using to process?

I'm kind of excited as tomorrow i'll get back about 6 rolls from a place i've recently discovered called The Darkroom https://thedarkroom.com/

They are pretty fast and affordable but i'm not a huge fan of their website/account portal.

Does anyone have any other suggestions or recommendations for film labs to send your stuff off...

Guess the stock

I was actually pretty surprised when I got these scans back. See if you can guess the stock, the answer may surprise you.

Scanning techniques

While I still shoot digital, I love film and have been shooting it since before digital cameras were even a consideration. That said, until I recently bought an Epson V850, I have never had a scanner that was capable of professional quality scans, and if I wanted the images scanned professionally I was always forced to spend an arm and a leg on...

What's in your [film] bag?

What are y'all shooting with for your film work? 35mm, medium format, LF, Polaroids?

Bonus brownie points for including pictures.

I'm currently all 35mm on a Nikon F100. Cool thing about the F100 is that it shares all the Nikon glass I shelled out for on my digital kit plus it feels and works like a "normal" modern camera.

Have Film Will Shoot

Almost all trips are accompanied by my Nikon F5 and 50mm F/1.8 simply because I like spending my time focusing on the subjects while using an organic platform. No time spent zooming or glancing at the LCD screen, just pure interaction with my surroundings. This scene at the Museum of Modern Art in New York is no different. Shot with Ilford XP2...

Ilford Pan F Plus 50 film

Just got done shooting a roll of Ilford Pan F Plus 50. This film can be a bit contrasty, so development has to be adjusted depending on use. For portraiture, the contrast has to be tamed a bit, as well as the grain (even for an ISO 50 film). That means Xtol, HC110 or Rodinal stand among other options.

I went with Rodinal 1:100 stand,...

Kodak Vision3 35mm motion picture film

I finally got around to developing a roll of Kodak Vision3 50D film. It was shot at the "box speed" of ISO 50, using a Canon EOS Elan 7N body and an EF 85mm f/1.8 USM lens. Softbox to my left, reflector to my right, and two Yongnuo YN-560 flashes in the back.

The film was home developed in a Unicolor C41 kit from the Film Photography...

Fujifilm New York Request

A bit of an odd request and long shot but...

Does anyone in New York have any developed negatives that I could use as a background for a product shot? Ideally Fujifilm but if not, any brand will do. It can be returned when done but due to the delicate nature of film it should probably be something you aren't too concerned about being...

Shooting Expired Film

So I've managed to lay my hands on a few rolls of expired film - nothing exciting really just some old Fuji superia 200 & Kodak colourgold.

I've read a few places that you need to shoot the film at a slower speed to compensate for the ageing of the film.

Any truth in this?
