    I love when friends go digital...

    As one of them just *gave* me about $150 worth of 120 and 35mm film.

    w00t!

    Make sure they see how much fun you're having with the film and then play the "Lets compare prints!" game where you set your traditional print down next to their ink jet print and exclaim "Wow, I didn't realize how GREAT this old techology really is!"

    I wish I'd have friends like that. On the downside, they have all gone digital for some time now.

    And one of mine sold me a mint(apart from crumbling light seals,which I've ordered replacement material for)Mamiya C33 professional TLR with 105mm lenses,for about 10% of what a dealer would have charged me-and he's selling me his Meopta enlarger cheap too!

    I hate it when friends go digital and then come to me for advice on how to use their digital cameras, because Iím a photo geek. I mean, I shoot fully manual film cameras, what they got is a bloody tri-corder.

    Me, do I look like Bill Gates?

    [QUOTE=captainwookie]I hate it when friends....

    Likewise, I know how you feel, isn't it interesting that when people know you're a photographer they expect you to know how to understand, work, fix and analyse every photographic [???] gadget that's ever been invented!

    I just tell people that I'm a photographer not a computer engineer!

    I don't have friends that went digital.. oh wait: maybe I dont have friends.period..

    BUT as a teacher at this high school, people throw things at me..
    just got an Agfa Varioscope and a leitz Focomat V35 for free.

    and a commercial photographer has promished his whole darkroom - 5 enlargers up to 13x18cm and paper, worth about 6.500$... (for free)

    actually: I LOVE digital!

    My experience is a little different, but just as welcome. A good friend went from 4x5 to 8x10 and 8x20 cameras and now makes platinum prints so he gave me all his 4x5 filmholders. Cool!

    I wonder how many of them secretly regret the digital move? It's hard to say because human nature will tend to make anyone (including us film users) believe that the road chosen is the right way. The only difference between us and them is that we're right!

    Someone "going digital" resulted in my bagging this system...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
