    I just got back from San Francisco. I shot 7 rolls of film on my mom's Minolta SLR, and took about 500+ pics on my Olympus P&S. God it was such a pain in the ass switching back and forth between two cameras trying to get good shots on both of them :(

    I need a DSLR ....I just shot 15 rolls of film for a wedding, but if cost wasn't a factor, I'd stick to film.

    the cost to process film was probably the #1 reason I went digital. I've done the '7 rolls of film' crap before...
     
  7. 35mm SLR bodies aren't very expensive anymore.. What's stopping you from getting one... :hs: :dunno:

    Speaking of film cameras, I just found my old SLR that I used for photo class, and looked up what it actually was

    Its a Nikkormat FT from 1965, with a (I'm guessing) 50mm f/2 lens. This thing is pretty sweet :)
     
  9. I beat you, my old SLR that I used for photo class = 1964

    I still have about 15 rolls of film undeveloped from before I went digital.. prolly all useless now since that was a few years ago and they've just been sitting in a cupboard..
     
  11. I still have about 8 rolls of T-MAX. Actually I keep telling myself that I have a fresh roll maybe only 2 shots taken still in the camera :eek3:

    nah, they'll still be fine. You might get some neat effects from them sitting that long. It's kind of like shooting expired film... you never know what some cool light leaks might add to your shots.:hs:
