    Northern NJ film camera clubs

    Are there any northern NJ film camera clubs? I have absolutely no interest in evil d*i*g*i*t*a*l & the clubs I have looked into all feature that evil word.

    I know you can search at the PSA site (I'll find the URL), but I think most camera clubs are digi and film (and some more digi than others). You might be able to find a dedicated film club, but forming one from apug is probably your best bet.

    Never been to a meeting, so I can say if they are into film or not.

    Craig,

    If you find one - you should certainly post the info here.

    I think there are two reasons why it will be difficult to find a "film club".

    Firstly, most existing photo clubs have probably incorporated digi shooters over time and, indeed, may now be dominated by such.

    Secondly, the web here by which we are communicating has devastated all kinds of "meet and greet in the flesh" shared interest clubs.

    Heck, consider that when you can come on-line here and "talk" film photography with folk all over the world from the warm cocoon of your own home - why go out and actually meet people? I'm speaking a bit tongue-in-cheek on this - but, sadly, there's a lot of truth in what I'm saying.

    The clubs that I have seen push too much digital & the only thing I like about digital is that it drove down the price of film equipment. But it would be nice to go out shooting with other like minded film people.

    Craig,

    On the "bright side" warmer weather is destined to visit us here in the NY/NJ area soon.

    If you want to organize some shoots - let us know when and where.

    There's a Geographical section here and you could also cross-post to some other fora.

    I agree it's getting to about time we shake off the winter cobwebs and start getting back out there. But while I'd like to participate, I'm not in a position to arrange them.

    Let us know what you can come up with.

    George

    Hi Craig, where in NJ are you? I'm in Long Branch on the beach and would be interested in getting together.

    Northern Jersey needs such a club. I'm in Eastern Bergen county. Let me know if you find anything out.

    I'm in Bergen also. Any interest in a North Jersey meet-up type thing? A MF/LF hike up to the castle in Ringwood might be fun (you can bring whatever camera you want)

    I'm trying to drum up interest for an informal Governors Island (NY Harbor) walking tour for this Sunday (June 8, 2008 - yes, I know it's short notice but I'm going to be there anyway so if anyone else wants to join in I'll put on my tour guide hat)

    I'm not as far north in NJ as I used to be. When I lived in Teaneck there was a camera club of some kind. I recently went to the Botanical Gardens Of NJ. Is that the castle in Ringwood you are referring to?
