When was the last time you used your film camera?

Been out today with my 1962 Rolleiflex 3.5 E3 Planar loaded with some more outdated Kodak T400CN 'Chromogenic' film but took only three shots on it so far. I got it from a Camera Club member in his 80's -- an ex- Sailor I introduced to the Club in the 1990's-- some years ago he didn't turn up to Club for a long time so I phoned to see how he was getting on -- " Oh dear -- not been very well at all -- think I'm Going " he said --- " Oh Bart -- don't think like that " I replied, " But if you DO 'GO' put me down for your old ROLLEIFLEX -- " You Old BUGGER -- you might as well get it NOW then" he replied with a smile I could tell !! So I rushed there and he handed me his 1962 3.5 E3 Planar but it cost me 60-00 to get the winding cogs done and a CLA !

I've just cleaned my Sigma SA-7, put a couple of new CR2 batteries in it and hope to get out with it later on today, weather permitting.

here is 86 year old BART who gave me his Rolleiflex 3.5 E3 Planar which I used to take this available light photo at full aperture
He is holding one of his famous 'self - portraits' and he is making a book up illustrated with them .
2001 outdated Kodak T400 CN film rated 160 ASA and home=-processed in C41
I have a Nikon F5 as a back-up and I haven't used it for ages. A few days ago I was emptying a camera bag and found quite a few films so I think it about time I used them!

Officially it was last night! I shot a stripped down Canon EOS (my best guess), indoors, no flash, under artificial light, in a place I visited to see if my wide converted lens could be fixed in a way I wanted to...

I was in Spain last week and shot 3 rolls of film on my FE 2. Taking them in today to get processed.

Um, as the heading of this topic is: When was the last time you used your film camera?

Perhaps Tomcat has been honest with his answer?

Honest maybe, sarcastic, definitely. I don't really mind, just laid up with a cold and feeling grumpy, I just wish it had been funnier... 1902 for example would have had a certain finesse. Grin
