    How old is everyone here in 35mm land?

    I turned 30 a half year ago, really wish I could have clicked the 20's button, I was proud of being in my 20's not so much in 30's not sure why, it just feels less "exciting" still I'm learning more.

    I started shooting at 12 with 35mm film, in 2008 I went digital in 2010 I went film for exactly 1 month in December shooting only Kodachrome and traveling the country, then back to digital. Then in the beginning of 2012 I explored film again by accident (I found an old 6x9 120 Kodak folder camera for $20 at a tag sale, I thought it would be a cheap way to "play" with film on the side) and now a ton of film cameras and accessories later I have TONS of film, it's the MF that got me, hardly ever shoot 35mm except panoramics.

    I think for financial reasons I need to step back and shoot more digital for a little while. I've got enough film and chemistry at this point but the time involved in processing and scanning and editing the dust spots out really cuts into my life. It's a constant battle between art (I prefer my film images for my framing and thought process to limit waste) and practicality (digital means saving on $ and time and not damaging the environment with bad chemicals and more working space with less miscellaneous equipment).

    Honestly, APUG has kept me in film, it's the best resource for photographic knowledge and unfortunately I can't post digital images for critique or questions about issues from a shoot, so I'm almost forced to shoot film or I lose all my friends haha.

    Film is a balance.

    When is PE taking the poll, he'll shift the balance hehe

    I joined the game through Super 8, sometime in my 20s I started to think the still image had something over the moving image. The inadequacy of high street B&W processing drove me to the darkroom. I flirted with digital in '08 and hated it, almost quit photography altogether because of the reliance on computers. Tried scanning in '09 and found it depressing. Now printing both colour and B&W and I'm 39.

    54 next week. Get to see the ortho and receive some more steroids for my arthritic knee too. Getting old sucks. But she's really hot.

    Mostly 120 nowadays.. But I've been known to play around with 35mm every once in a while!
    Btw: I'm 28 last time I checked, but the onset of darkroom intoxication has hindered my math skills.. Hehehe!

    I'm 52. My Nikon F is 45, Nikkormat FtN is 42 (that's my 'new' camera ), my Deardorff V8 was made in 1950, Linhof STIV 1959; I have and use lenses made from 1904/5 to 1971. I do use mostly fresh chemicals and color films, but I'm currently using Tri-X in 8x10 that has been stored frozen since 1989.
