Hey everyone so those that know me know that photography is something close to my heart so in today’s post I’m going to talk about the film cameras that I’m currently using and the film I’m using in them.
Now why not use digital i hear you say well my answer is i do but sometimes i like nostalgia and the ability for me to slow my day photographing down and as you are limited to either 24 or 36 exposures or in some case 12 depending on the film type you use so it gives you time that you can use and think about the composition & exposure.
My first Film Camera that I’m currently using is the Olympus OM10 released in 1972 so that makes this camera 43 years old and it still works a charm I’ve always got a 50mm F1.8 Lens on this camera which gives you excellent depth of field.
The film i use in this camera is ilford HP5 B&W and Kodak Portra Color Film if anyone is interested in using film for photography i highly recommend using this and you can pick them off eBay for about 20-30 pounds.
The second film camera I’m currently using a little bit of a special one its the Mamiya RB67 Pro S this camera is from 1970 and is 45 years old this also works like a charm and was once and still is regarded as the studio king of cameras unlike the Olympus OM10 this camera uses 120 film which is a larger image capturing media the film i use with this is Kodak Portra Ilford HP5 & T-Max
These cameras are my current favorites and the ones i use changes overtime as i have many film cameras that i can use so if you like this post i will do some more posts like this below is some images i have taken using the film cameras and some images of the cameras themselves so you can enjoy the beauty of them as much as i do.
