Why do you use film?
I love this site, I've learned so much about photography from APUG, even though at my age I should have known most of it by now.
I love film as well, pretty much all of what I do with a camera is with film cameras.
-Film's known permanence.
-Film seem less harsh than electronic methods I've seen so far.
-Film can have enormous exposure latitude.
-I like the simplicity of a camera like my ratty old M2 or my
scruffy old F2A. Form follows function, no menus etc.
-I like the way a film camera slows me down.
-I like the fact that I can choose a camera that is NOT battery dependent
This is some of my reasons for liking film, may I ask what is your reasons?
it's the only thing that's cut the right size to fit into my film holders.
my cameras don't take anything else.
It has a physical integrity and thereafter I don't really care about production, although I do print in a darkroom before the introduction of digital conversion.
I enjoy the craft of making photographic prints by hand.
I like the way my pictures look on film
Been shooting film for over 50 years, don't plan on stopping any time soon.
I was dropped on my head as an infant.
I shoot, process, and print black and white film because I have 45 years of experience and have gotten fairly adept at it. I also just like the way it looks. On the other hand, I went to a garden yesterday, took 85 digital snapshots and posted a dozen of them to Facebook, with the Fall colors really pumped up in Photoshop. Yee haw ...
I don't like nor do I understand the joys of cyber-sex. Same goes for digital photography: totally pointless practice.
It's better - especially for folks who choose to own a car or home instead of a Hasselblad H4.
Attachment 77207 Digital, and Attachment 77208 Film!
These are two snaps I made at work the other day - one with a 10mm lens on a Canon 600D, and the other on a 5x4" with 65mm lens and Kodak Portra 160. Hmm, I like the film one a lot better :-)
