    Just out of curiosity. Might be someone else made the same suggestion, or the info is available somewhere else.

    It will be good to know the average age of users in the forum, to cross both polls and do a relative % of format usage....

    Makes sense?



    Oh I do 35 and 6x6, and now waiting for a 4x5 camera.

    Early thirties. Started out with a Pentax KM (not K-M) bought used in the late 1990s. Still mostly a 35mm shooter (still mostly using that same KM), but starting to drift towards larger negatives. Being able to look at a ground glass with both eyes is really nice ...

    You were born with a camera in your hand, and photographed your own birth, I have to conclude.

    2013 - 50 = 1963

    It's been interesting reading this thread and seeing such commonality.

    Myself, I did commercial work for years, 90% E6. Only tried to process E6 once... came out good but too much hassle with 3 pro labs in town (Dallas is down to one now I believe...) Then came digital, which, for business, I love.

    What I don't love is how "everyone's a commercial shooter" now, "just look at the LCD" - film really separated the men from the boys and I can't imagine a lot of the younger generation trying to sleep while waiting on snip tests from a very expensive shoot -no matter how prepared I was and how good the polaroids looked, it was always a bit nerve wracking. Then again, digital has allowed a lot of people to quickly understand exposure.

    I do a lot of design work and web work, and the quality of supplied photography I get is often pretty abysmal. But I suppose the world of photography has been opened up to people with a good eye, who may have never gotten into it without the ease of digital. You can throw a lot of spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks, essentially for free, and there's some good creativity coming out of that.

    That said, as a commercial guy, I never messed with the Zone system and negative exposure and developing precision, dialing in a film was much more about correct product colors and clean whites. Returning to B&W and really trying to do it right and learn from many of the giant talents posting here - I do feel like I'm 20 again as far as the sense of a wide-open world of possibilities. And that feels very cool!

    mid 40's...

    I've shot so much film that I nearly lost count....working as a photographer for years does that to you..

    I shoot mostly digital now (and love it from a editing viewpoint, as I can get the color I want every time) - although it's far more work than when we shot film on a job.

    I miss sending the film off to a lab, getting the prints back and sending them and a invoice off to the client.........
    A camera is only a black box with a hole in it....

    my blog...some film, some digital http://andrewk1965.wordpress.com/

    My first 35mm was a C3, it was stolen when I got wounded in Ben Hoa in 67

    I'm 49. Started photography at 14 with a Dacora 620 folder. Moved into 35mm with Fuji, Pracktica, Miranda( G and Sensorex), Nikon F Tn, Contax 159, then Nikon FE for many years. Around 2007 I went autofocus with Nikon F80s. I now have several Nikon auto and manual focus SLRs. I have dabbled in MF with Lubitel, Seagull and Rollei TLRs, but am taking it more seriously now with a Bronica SQaM. I have no experience of digital. I think it is very funny when you see quite modern cameras sold as 'vintage' or 'retro' simply because they use film. They are 'state of the art' technology to me! Alex

    I'm 40, and I've been shooting analog for, what I dunno... five years? I started with medium format, added 35mm, then large format. I favored medium format in my Mamiya C330 for a long time but I've more recently discovered the joy of taking many more photos simply by virtue of having a Yashica T4 that I can take everywhere. The processing of 35mm is the easiest for me, too, so I do it more often. I know before it's all done I'll be doing tintypes or something. But I'm really enjoying the journey.
