    Blue High Speed X-Ray Film

    Getting back into film photography after 8 years

    I used to frequent this forum a lot, but took a long break from shooting film to concentrate on my education and career. I picked up a Canon 5D at some point in 2015, but I didn't have anything to show from it as there wasn't the same emotion attached that I had with my film photos from 8 years...

    Bulk loading cassettes

    Hi All, I was recently given an Alden 74 daylight bulk loader and was wondering where to find reusable cassettes? I have found a few plastic ones but have heard mixed reviews. Any recommendations? I am a broke student so can't afford to spend a ton on them. Thanks

    Since I will be in London for a few days: Are there any interesting stores for analogue photography / cameras? I know that London isn't a cheap place but the prices should be reasonable if you suggest a certain store ... :-)

    B&W Developers... waddya know???

    I've been developing my own black and white films for a couple of years, but I've only used Ilfosol 3 so far. It was what was on offer in the shop where I bought my first set of chemicals, and when the first bottle was finishing I simply bought some more. Now that bottle is also finishing, and I...

    Fillum in Newcastle?

    After a bit of a break - and repeatedly packing my neglected Hasselblad on trips - I have rekindled my love for photography and run out of film! There were four rolls of HP5 in the depths of my dusty old Billingham and two days into my five day escape to the Pennines I am on my last roll...

    Film and conventional postcard challenge: round 3 - discussion

    The first film postcard challenge was here, results here, and the second round is here. I really enjoyed these, and liked the guessing component of the second challenge ( song title; the theme of the first was simply where we live). It seems like it might be time to try this again, if there's...

    B&W No. 2 Folding Autographic Brownie

    Following up on the antique shop finds in this post: Both cameras needed work on the bellows as they were full of holes. However, the internet recommended solution of painting with Water Based Gutta seems to have done the trick. So I loaded up the No.2 Folding Autographic with a roll of Pan F...

    Brownie Six-20 Model C

    From c.1946-53, my inherited Brownie Six-20 is still going strong. With 1/50 (or Bulb), f11 & 100mm with a minimum focus of ~8' being the only options, it certainly makes you think... and appreciate the exposure latitude of film (and carry a lightmeter ;) 1. 2. 3. *All Ilford Pan F 50...

    Hi everyone, I've just got my hands on a Rolleiflex camera, from searching online I believe it's a 1950s 3.5 X Synch. Although it's fully working, the viewfinder is a little on the dull side and the leatherette on the crank side of the camera is cracking and flaking off. I think it would...

    Contax RX making weird whirring noise?

    Anybody have any idea why this might be happening? I recently procured a Contax RX film camera body, but when the battery is put in (no matter whether turned on or off) the camera starts making a continuous loud whirring sound. Occasionally (sporadically) it will stop and then start again for no...

    Nikon F6

    I have a persistant itch. I'm currently satiating my love of film with a Bessa R3M, a Minox 35ML, a Noon pinhole and a couple of Fuji Instax cameras. But I've recently taken to looking at reviews of the Nikon F6. I know it's wrong but I can't seem to help myself. I was wondering if anyone...
