    Until recently I photographed sporadically; I averaged from 1 to 5 rolls in a three-month period (not counting vacation). The past few months, however, I've been doing 1-2 a week. Getting back into photography and developing film myself has helped, and I'm really enjoying it again.

    Looking what film I bought it's probably 2-3 rolls of 35mm a week and 1-2 of 120. That's the average, there may be a week where I shoot nothing and then I may go out and shoot 10 rolls in a day. Probably the same number of shots I shoot in digital as well.

    1 roll per model when shooting 35mm.
    Or when making street photography, 1 roll can last from 2 days up to one week.
    When travelling it is about one roll a day.

    Hmm, zero? I discontinued my use of 35mm film in 2008 in preference to 120 /4x5 / 8x10. I was looking at my old Agfa 35mm negatives the other day and all of a sudden I was on eBay buying used 35mm camera gear. I'm guessing I'll be good for about 1-2 rolls per week.

    About 1 I would guess, maybe 2. Mostly 120. Though the other week I had two photoshoots and killed 2 35mm and 2 120 on each, so who knows, but then I'll hit a dry spell and not shoot all week, but I switch between 35mm, 127, 120, fuji pack film and TIP Polaroid and then sometimes 620,116, 616 for fun.so it can be up and down.

    Have become quite conservative in my shooting. Even 35mm half frame! For that I bulk load and shoot 50 frames, my Print-file pages hold 10 half frame neg strips. From there I skip to 120 6X6 folders and 620 6X9 folders. At 12 and 8 exposures it does not take too long to finish a roll.
    I have a 4X5 but so far have only used photo paper as a negative so that does not really count.

    [QUOTE=Ken Nadvornick;1506299]Exposing 8 (36 exp) rolls in 8 minutes would be making one exposure every 1.7 seconds, non-stop. But that doesn't factor in the need to also reload seven new rolls in that same time frame. If you can reload in, say, 30 seconds flat, that removes an additional 3.5 minutes, leaving only 4.5 minutes for 288 frames, or 0.9375 seconds per exposure, non-stop.

    I think our respective definitions of "making every shot count" and being "very intentional" are worlds apart.


    I didn't expect to be quoted on 8 minutes exactly, I put 8-15 as a general time frame because im not timing myself. Whatever the math comes to, it's fast, yes. Every picture is always something new, but not just a random selection of just anything. I think our respective time frames for making every shot count and being very intentional are very different is all.

    It only takes 1/1000 to make a picture

    Motor drive at 5fps makes about 7 seconds per roll plus 33 seconds for rewind/reload. It could be done, but why?
