    At the University of Windsor, (Canada) students are required to use a 35mm SLR in the introductory class, and have to buy tons of consumables. (which is a good thing... the more people buying paper and film in a university town, the more the stores will stock for me. )

    Welcome to APUG, by the way. You're among friends here.

    Cheers,
    Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Keep shooting film, and be proud of your work. Enjoy it as a hobby, an art, a passion.

    Cheers,
    Yes, APUG gives energy to us to continue and not worry about film. Other communities have forumers that are just all the day "that's obsolete" "I think that film will last 2 years more and then bye..". It's comfortable to stay here and don't have a zillion posts saying that.

    Bah who cares about the others. Be proud and ignore the digital "fanatics", if you don't; you'll be greatly annoyed.
    Just respect them, and they should respect you. If they don't respect you and annoy you all the time telling you "go digital"; Keep shooting happily and don't lose your illusion on film. Remember they can't have HP5 grain, or Velvia yellow. You've got it, and they don't.

    I am only a teen. I love film to death and I do not own a digital camera and I am proud of it! I do not have a darkroom yet. I would love to have one. I think that my generation will never be intrested in picking up film. Somehow we should change that and try to get some younger folks into film. I remember when I was little I had a Fisher Price 110 camera. Now they are all digial. (that makes me laugh everytime I see one in the store). But my point is that we need to introduce more people that are out there back to analog mediums.

    I do agree about most of what do you say. I do have a little boring compact that if it broke, I wouldn't even care. It's OK for take some shots I would need the next day. But for everything else, there's the 35mm.

    The few of us that will shoot film, will keep it going.
    Some (as I did) may get into this world because of curiosity. In october I had a radical change. I changed the music I listen, and the media. Now I do love anything analogic.
    Like vynil records, they're special compared to the stuff of today.
    We're used to listen music from a MP3 and the computer. And It's very interesting to listen and see vinyls, because few of us seen and heard them, it's a different thing that we aren't used to see.
    As the vinyl records have followers that keep them going, film is and will be the same history.
