    I enjoyed your photographs Antonov. You are lucky to be able to take them. It is not possible to wander round a train yard in Britain with a camera unless you get special permission.

    It's OK. No problem if you don't like them, he he, can't all people love your photos.

    Thanks Andy!As I said there, I tried to give that "abandoned station" look.Big train station, with very few trains.Reality is much different, there are lot of trains, but I like to take pictures when is this like, nobody out there, very sunny, etc.
    I'm railway enthusiast, I have biggest railway portal in southeastern Europe with big forum, and there are lot's of photographers here, but just two of us with film.Photographing here also can be problem, if you don't have permission, but not like in UK, I mean, here depends from station to station, in some no one will ask you anything, but in some, they bother you that you must have license.

Fujicolour 200 twinpacks of 36 exp 135..... £0.99 150). so for a 36 exp colour film 50p+99p+180p = £3.29 for film, dev & 36 prints!!! not that anyone uses film any more all the more for me

    I have just enquired at my local Tesco about develop only.
    My local Tesco has to send there films away to a Kodak lab. They were not sure about develop only because there was no box to tick on envelope. They did say that develop only would be available in there stores with photo processing in store.
    I can get an 1 hour develop only service at my local ASDA.
    I will tell my sister in Brighton about the deal on Fuji 200 for 99p for 2X135x36.
    Andy. K thanks for the post about the Kodak VR film I just got a shopping bag full. Its long dated to 07/08

    OK lets do the maths . Good quality 35mm SLR without bells and whistles approx £30 with lens on auction site. Reasonable quality 'low' spec digi SLR (i.e it makes the tea but does not add the milk :-)) £400 with lens. Saving on gear = £370 . Depreciation over 5 years for film camera - £0 , Digi cam = £350 - let's be generous.

    For an amateur shooting a roll a month over 5 years photos cost £3.29 x60 = £197.40. Add scanner to allow storage and distribution on the web/phone.pda/internet enabled freezer (they exist apparently) at £80. Total 5 year outlay for film user = just shy of £280. Future costs are purely for film , d and p i.e £40 approx p.a
    Digi user has to repeat the process every 5 years , even if prints are 'free' the digi user is down on the deal by £70 in the first 5 years and £150 every other 5 years.

    Now I see those economies they talk about when justifying the use of digital .
    Hmm- Wonder if she'd notice if I bought that :)

    Thats not adding in the post processing time you have to do, admittedly you can play about with scans but RAW files HAVE to have an element of Photoshopping. What about reliability, I hear lots of stories about dusty sensors, dead batteries, dead sensors etc....I managed to drop my MTL5 on top of Ben Nevis & dented the prism holder bit on the top plate, still works perfectly....how many DSLRs could you do that to....

    I had an MTL3 years ago, the 5 must be a bit flimsy, the 3 would have dented Nevis (Sorry off topic)

    I have the 3 too, I must admit there was a large crack down the north face of Nevis that wasn't there on the way up.
