I’m not a photographer, but I have a great appreciation for people who do have an eye for capturing the perfect angle at just the right moment. It amazes me. This 1 minute collection of cameras video made me nostalgic. Anyone out there still shoot with film?

P.S. — Remember Gabrielle’s family photo shoot that was done in film?

Don’t shoot with film anymore, but I have so many memories of hanging out with my dad in his darkroom.

Oh that’s so cool Rebecca. I’ve never been in an darkroom but it seems very mysterious.

I’d love an old school camera with film. I remember how exciting it used to be, picking up your printed photos from the photo shop, never knowing how they’d turn out. “Oh no 3 out of 4 family members have their eyes closed for the annual xmas card photo… shame.”

It was SO exciting! After summer camps or sleepovers when we’d taken a bunch of pictures, it was like standing on eggshells waiting to see the results. Most were terrible but it was so exciting to sort through the stack.

I do still shoot with film, in a very informal way. I’ve been using a Lomo camera for a few years now and love that I have to wait until the film is processed to see the final results – usually a mixture of successes, failures and happy accidents. I’m a designer, so spend a lot of my days working with digital imagery, so it’s always refreshing to take a break with film. You can find some of my lomo photos over on Flickr

as much as i love the value and immediacy of digital…i miss the old days when i traveled the world with my little nikon fe and my bag of foil wrapped slide film, worrying as it slid in and out of the x-ray machines or was doused with sea spray on some faraway island.

in film school, my class was the last to be required to use film. that i do not miss. ten thousand dollars for a three minute film still hurts me to think about.

Oh Film, it’s all I shoot with. Ditched the digital years ago and never looked back. Thanks for this post. So great!

I was in a creative rut until I picked up a film camera about a year ago. Now film is all I want to shoot for my personal photos as well as clients! (Some iPhone too ;)

Love the video! The last time I shot photos on film was for my photography classes in college. I still cherish the prints I have because I remember all of the blood (literally, I cut myself opening a film canister), sweat and tears it took to develop the film.
