I have a roll in my OM10 - but I have to say I don't use it really. I should, or I want to, I just don't seem to get around to it. It's in my bag in the boot of the car.

Yes, my boy cameraboy was GIVEN an OM2n by a widow lady and most of his photos on here are on it now-- he also has an XA2,Konica Reflex,Yashica LM,Canon FTBn all given -- his most treasured possessions, and lots of FILM all given which we are using ! We still like FILLUM better than the dreaded Digital !

Just picked up a 2nd hand OM10, so yes I am using 35mm film, or at least until the noviety wears off...

I would be using Ilford FP4+ or HP5+ if I had the time, but that reminds me of a shot I want to take when I'm away working next week so thanks for that! Wink

I like to alternate film and digital on a ratio of 1-3 one film could be 35 or 120' to three weeks digital. robalb

Not with an OM10 (although I have owned and enjoyed one - first camera with Off The Film metering... Wink) but I still shoot 35mm film.

My OM1 is still working like a dream - although I'm using SFX 200 in my EOS 3 at the moment.

I did last year, then I switched to Canon FD film, not for any particular reason. Always prints, never slides.

HP5 in my OM2n, did the majority of last with it. It is my go to camera for light, mobile work though it is just behind the RB67 for projects.

I have quite a few friends still using 35mm, at least another couple with OMs as well.

Still have all my film camera's - trade in prices not worthwhile., may as well keep them for sentimental value if nothing else, but I still use mine. My OM2n is using Fujicolor Superior 100 at the moment

I just bought Canon A1, so I have put a slide film in & click click. I got 3 or 4 more clicks before I take it to the shop to see the results. Can't wait.

Going to a family Wedding tomorrow and will have my DSLR with me, but really thinking about taking the OM10 along and finish off a roll of film.

Well, when I sold some of my kit to fund digital camera I kept back one EOS-1N body so I could still shoot film. That was three years ago and I haven't shot a roll since. However, I do also have an old Canon F-1 and I am going to shoot some film soon. Partly for nostalgia I guess, partly because resources (i.e. 36 shots on a roll) arelimited it makes you think more than popping away with digital, and partly becasue I think (with no little justification it has to be said) that film has a certain quality - especially a silver print made from an Ilford Delta neg.
