    Film is alive and well in the north west!

    Just came back from a short hop around in the north west and found some really amazing things there.

    Read my post about what i saw:

    It sure is. It was amazing to see so many people hard at work using traditional and alternative processes.
    The north east, or anywhere else for that matter is not any less of a pretty place (each with its own type of beauty/interest) - now its our job to make the big outlets in or area look like that.

    Glazers is a great place to wander through; I always leave there a couple of hundred dollars poorer. I've been to Photo Center NW only once, when they were having their annual 'garage sale' a few years ago. Got the full, jaw-dropping tour. Wish I had the finances to drop everything and study there.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    The next time you are in Portland you should make it a point to go to Blue Moon Camera. They have a modest selection of film but for old camera collectors it is a DREAM! The shelves and cases are bursting with TLR's, old folders, rangefinder lenses, large format cameras, etc. etc. Plus their processing facilities are first rate.

    Thank you for posting about our region though. We do love our film photography in the Pacific Northwest. :-)

    It used to be that Pro Photo had a huge walk-in room/cooler to store their film and photographic paper. Now all that is there is a film fridge. That was depressing to see. Pro Photo quickly switched to mainly all digital some years ago, and I never went back.

    We're international... you mean the northwest of the US?

    Still, good news to hear.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
