Threw my Nikon F50 in the bin a few weeks ago. Still have my Seagull TLR though! Must buy some chemicals. Anyone done any Washing Soda/Coffee developing? I bought a book on Development for 1p from Amazon a while back, need to study it re making my own Dev/Fixer.

I have shot only one roll of an expired 120 film with the Seagull some summers ago. It produced some great pictures. With the highest speed 1/300th of a sec, I think it is perfect for taking pics in the U.K.
I have seen in youtube a mix of coffee and vitamin C (Caffenol) check it:

Friends,

I'm afraid I last used my EOS 3, many years ago, when I purchased a 450D. Currently using a 7D.

I must get out the Eos 3, as I have several films, probably out of date but perfectly usable.

EOS 3 - one of the finest slr's ever - always loved the amazing eye controlled focusing

There is some lovely stuff on David Lingham's website, he still uses only film and prints all his own stuff. Worth a look if you have a spare 30 mins.

Thanks Paul Anthony. Clyde Butcher (http://www.clydebutcher.com/) in USA does amazing landscape work in black and white solely, using a large format camera. Friends, have a look into his amazing work. Anthony, have you shot any film recently yourself?

It must be months ago now. I thought would be doing it now, but actually I'm still busy with decorating etc., and no room for processing. I can feel a film session coming on though. Just have to climb out from these paint cans first.

10 years ago today. Smile

hey Carabosse, you've got a great memory!
It must have been a much anticipated purchase of a digital camera or
was it a total disaster from your film camera?

It was that "wow" moment when I found the 4Mp digital compact, I had just bought, was giving me better quality than my Canon film SLR.

From that day, I never used film again - and the SLR and lenses were sold within a fortnight. Smile

TODAY I went to Chelmsford, Essex ( England) for the annual 'Street Diversions' and finished off a roll of 2007 outdated Fuji Superia Extra 800 I downrated to 250 ASA ( after testing ) and got some good 'Characters' -- I will take it for processing on Monday -- I used my Free Gift CANON A1 ( well although NOT a PENTAX it was FREE !! )

About two weeks ago...

I just wish I could get the same level of enjoyment out of shooting with my DSLR. Or even results that come anywhere close to what I can get from 5x4.
