Boy.. that sounds familier.. I get that all the time too. Most of time I'm happy to explain and show off my Rollei to people and explain what it does. And yes.. you can still get film, not at at Walgreens , but on-line. It's wierd but any film camera that we sport out in public is like we have a never before seen camera, cause eveyone has a android or Iphone. I was at the Apple store store here in Albq. The sales clerk asked me first thing on what a beautiful camera it was and ask those very same questions. I was happy to explain. the roles were reversed meaning I felt like was the salesman and he was the customer. I tried to ask question about Ipad Mini, but the conversation keeped going back to Rollei.. I had about three clerks around me just staring at it and asking question. There was one guy that said when he lived in NY city there were "Hipsters" that carried them around but really sucked at taking pictures with them. I asked.. "So they were more like a fashion accessory"? He said "Yes". So yhea... I would consider us the film shooters a cut above the Norm from people that are using cell phone camera.
