    Will work for film

    Ok, at this particular point in time I now have 1,2,3,4,5,6 uhuh 7 cameras loaded and ready to leap into action at the drop of a hat. That is four MF and three 35's sitting with the safeties off and they could possibly put an eye out. That is a LOT of film especially the 120, I need to find a cheap source to feed my addiction. I have no problem shooting expired film and have even gotten good results from film i found in the bottom of my junk drawer. This is a growing problem that has me scrounging every nook and cranny and even the cushions of the sofa for film. I need help and soon or the next step will be rehab.

    "Hello, my name is Joel and I have been a film junkie for twenty
    years and I have been clean for two days"

    They (the cameras) seem to call me in the night saying "feed me, feed me, FEED ME"

    Shoot with sheet film and a view camera for awhile. You will then form the habit of taking a picture rather than shooting. Like a sniper who may only have one shot, carefully getting the right exposure, compose, expose.

    I found when I pick up a 35mm now, I don't burn through a roll of film with a lot of duplicate or wasted shots.

    You could go for synth, eg. as with Sonynex. Won't help either but does cost less.

    I've got a fridge full of out of date 120 and a few rolls of 35mm that I'm unlikely to use. Got a garden that needs weeding badly....

    When I started my photographic journey eons ago in High School for the year book/paper, film was supplied by the school.
    In College it was the same story, free film. When I joined the Military and they found that I was handy with a camera, free film. When I got out and went back to school I worked for several papers and the local RLS, more free film. All that time, since film was free, I would shoot everything and anything. When my wife and I had our first child she insisted I get a real job. Fooey.
    Now here I am 20 years later older and wiser, I am much more discriminating about the shots I take. Because of the fact that photography is not my main source of income I spend a lot of time planning out the shoots that I do. Even so, the amount of money that I spend on film would go a long way towards the dreaded "D" word purchase. My wife has blasphemed as much.

    You only have seven cameras loaded? Man, you have a LONG way to go before hitting bottom. I have something like 20 currently loaded, and I am far from the worst. Well, maybe not that far... :rolleyes:

    I owe you an apology - From the heading, I assumed you were a mere youngster looking to fund the habit doing boy-scout type bob-a-jobs...

    It was not my intent to mislead anyone on the forum it is just my twisted sense of humor or lack thereof. I find that the more I rediscover the joy of my first love (photography) the lighter my pocket book gets. Come to think of it my wife had that very same effect on me when we were first dating.

    I'll be on the next boat over. I love gardening almost as much as I love my cameras(heres where I tell everyone)although, not nearly as much as I love my wife(she's looking over my shoulder as I write this).
