    Hi

    Just found this forum looks like i will learn alot here

    I have decided to start using my old film cameras again and some that my dad had in his loft i have managed to buy some old 127 film for my Brownie and Bencini Comet 2 and some 120 for my Kershaw Folding also dug out my old Olympus om10 with 50mm and a few odds from the eighties like the Halina telewide 110 a Kodak Disc camera that had a film with it dated 1993 lol
    and another Olympus Superzoom 160

    I want to learn more about using old film cameras and the processing of the films

    This looks like the place to be

    I have set myself a little project to take the same photos on all my different cameras and have a look at the results

    thanks

    Martyn
