    Thom Hogan has launched a new photographic film gear site at http://www.filmbodies.com. Thom is not a huge proponent of film, but neither is he a basher. A lot of this material is legacy stuff from long ago but it appears he is writing a bit more about film. With lots of hits I am sure he will write more.

    Anyway, getting film photography out on the web has to be good for film users.

    Interesting, thanks. Unfortunately after numerous attempts to locate a link to purchase/download his book on the F100. I gave up. Not very intuitive. :confused:

    The bythom site seems to only want to give me the means of downloading DSLR stuff. Nothing on F100 or F5

    Fwiw,I've emailed Thom with questions in the past and he did take the time to respond. I know he must get a lot of email. He's a stand-up, no-nonsense kind of guy.

    The opposite side of the coin when compared to another internet-photog-personality whose name rhymes with Lynn Mockyell;-)
