    Well, technically 60's for the moment, turn 70 in August. Photography keeps me young. Don't feel a day over 69 and half.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    45 this year. I started out with film as a youngster in the 80's, nothing serious just a Samsung compact. Wandered away from photography completely until about the age of 35 or so, then came back to it when digital started to improve. I am now back to film (35 and 120) probably for good. Last year I learned how to develop my own b/w and will learn c-41 in the very near future, then E-6. There are so many beautiful film cameras I would love to own. For now I adore my Nikon FE, a Yashica 24, a Nikon F90x, an Olympus OM-10, and Yashica TL Electro.

    59, not for long. Been shooting film since, uh, 1960. Not planning to stop. I've been stockpiling film and wine. My goal is to run out of both about the time I expire.

    21,742 Days or about 59.5 years.

    To quote the Byrds famous song, "My Back Pages" (written by Bob Dylan) "Ah, but I was so much older then,
    I'm younger than that now".

    At 26, I thought for a while I must be one of the youngest members, but a ton of you are way younger than me.

    Earlier today the poll results showed an inverse bell curve, which actually made more sense to me; I figured old people simply don't want to change, and young people like film because it's trendy.

    Well, my bulge started in my forties, but it's gotten much bigger in my fifties.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Turned 53 yesterday, had a fever, felt like crap. Fever broke, feeling better today. Processed 6 sheets of 57 in my newly made BTZS tubes. Went pretty well, only ruined 2 of the negatives. I was doing the film in pairs, just in case I had some kind of problem. My initial agitation prior to dropping the tubes in the water bath was too vigorous and the film moved and ended up over lapped. Reduced the initial agitation and the next 4 sheets turned out great.

    Btw I do shoot 35mm, just happen to be processing 57 today. When I was hanging the film to dry I actually noticed 3 rolls of 35mm that I need to process.

    How old is everyone here in 35mm land?

    Well, just voted and it seems I put the bulge back in the forties! Will turn 42 this year.

    Started in photography in the 80s by reading my father's books which dated from the early 50s to the early 70s. Used for many years a Petri FT from 1970 and a range of nice Petri glass until I got one of the last Prakticas in the early 90s. Only went AF with Canon in 2000. Switched to Nikon in 2004. Disappointed with the "D" world, I left any photographic pursuit from 2006 until last year when I got back a F4 and a F90X. I am happier today than ever with my photos!
    My cameras:
    Fed 2
    Zenit 11, 12XP
    Nikon F4, F4S, F401S, F601, F801, F801S, F50, F55, F60, F65, F70, F75, F80, F90, F90X, EL2, FE, FM, FG, FG-20, EM
