Just did a couple weeks ago. Only water resistant camera I have is an Olympus and I went on a canoe trip.

Mostly digital though, especially now that I have a DSLR

That's subjective. One woman's pervert is another woman's innovator.

Don't know what I'll do when I run out of cached film.

I have a lightly used Canon Rebel 2000 35mm camera, but I haven't used it since I got a digital camera. I just can't bring myself to throw it away, considering what I paid for it, but it's worth about as much as a disposable film camera nowadays.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 4:36:18 PM EDT
got both
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 4:37:04 PM EDT
Yep. I have a Pentax K1000 and can't think of the last time I used it.

I still use my OM1n. My father bought it for me when I was in ninth grade. I'm 47 now.

I'm all digital but do own a film camera and that's because I have one just sitting on a shelf that my pops gave me quite some time ago.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 4:53:08 PM EDT
I own a couple, but we never use them.

Got rid of my last film camera in 2005 (a Nikon 2020 with a couple of lenses and strobe). Gave it to a friends kid who needed a film camera for school class.

Only have 2 point and shoots at this time. A Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 and a Sony DSC-H1

Used to have my own closet darkroom and shot a asston of B&W. I can still recall hours and hours of time working in there, the smell of the chemicals and the muscle memory of all the steps involved in each process.

Digital is convenient as hell but tweaking shit in Photoshop will never be the same as working a dodge tool or a burn in card to get just the result you're looking for.

Still have my Canon AE-1 and a couple good lenses. Walgreens still sells and develops film.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 5:16:20 PM EDT
I have a Canon AE-1 I barely use. But it does take some incredible pictures, far beyond my measly abilities.

I've got a 40 something year old Minolta SLR with a bunch of massive lenses. I also have a few digital cameras laying around. They aren't as good, but they work for most things... I just hate how fast they suck up batteries though.

I still have my almost mint Canon A1 SLR which I break out ocassionally. Still, I prefer my digital Canon 40D. Unless you're shooting medium format, digital produces a better image in almost every way.

Oh, God, that damned stuff...I ran a photo shop at the time and we all in the industry told Kodak they were introducing a loser format, just to keep photo developing cranking over for a few more years until they got their digital act together. They told us, "Oh no- it's the wave of the future!"

Die, Eastman Kodak, Die!

I worked a lab around the same time. We sent that shit out. Our machines were clapped out shit at that point, but my understanding is that the boss ran 'em for another 7 years after that. Agfa machines... Must've been good stuff, we beat the crap out of 'em!

Yes. I still use an Olympus OM-1 35mm film camera to take long exposure astrophotography pics on slide film. Love the old school cameras you can open the shutter and leave it open for 45 minutes and then close it when you need it. Then all you have to do is scan the slide. Newer CCD cameras made just for such purposes now but they aren't cheap for good ones. I don't have any lenses for it so I couldn't take a regular picture without it being attached to a telescope.

The biggest drawback isn't the camera but rather the film nowdays. I have to send the slide film off to be developed in CO, but turn around is pretty quick.

A lot of the appeal I admit is because very few still do it this way.

Yes.
I have both but I only use my Nikon D80 these days.

I still have my Nikon F/converted to a Nikon F2 with several lenses:

Own or use?

I have a nice Canon 35mm and a Pentax lens (asswipe roommate stole the camera), but I never use the thing

BTW, anyone want to buy ... wait, can't do that here. Never mind.

We ran Noritsu. I refused to get involved in APS developing and sent it all out to Qualex, AKA "Kodak". Noritsu machines sucked, and their techs were overpaid morons. I think by the mid-1990s everybody knew that film dev. was going to go the way of the buggy whip, so, nobody cared. I got out in 1996, sold all my stuff, incl,. the 35mm pro equip. I used for all manner of pro photography...

The new owner who bought me out called me up a year later and offered to sell it all back to me for $5K. I laughed, hung up the phone and haven't talked to anybody in the photo biz in general since.

My film cams collect dust. I've since superseded them with better and better digital cameras.

Direct download to the computer for Photoshop work FTW.

digital only.

too broke for film right now.

would love to get into it at some point though

I have a couple of old Nikon N6006 and N8008's. I also have my first camera, a Canon AE-1 and my dad's old Yashica-Mat camera that he handed down to me. I still have all my old photo gear too (bulk loader, film developing tank, etc. when I did black and white) - but I can't remember the last time I shot a piece of film.

I found one of those in the dumpster at work.

I have three or four rolls of 35mm around here somewhere that need to be developed. I have no idea how old they are or what's on them.

Yup a 35mm and a Polaroid that not that old but someone didnt tell me they were gonna stop making film for them as well as a DigiCam

I have two Olympuses, one film and one digital. Both are "weatherproof". Do yourself a favor; when you upgrade to digital skip the Olympus and go to Canon. I've never been so disappointed in picture quality as with my Olympus 1030SW.

Canon makes a weatherproof point-and-shoot digicam now; both of my Canons have produced crystal-clear pictures, especially compared to my Olympus.

To the OP: while I have a film camera, I rarely use it any more.
