    Ok it seems as though theres quite a few film users on this forum, so two40 and i thought it'd be a good idea to start up a "film is not dead" club ;)
    You don't need to be an exclusive film user to join of course, just somebody who enjoys the unique aesthetics of film photos, or someone who likes the look and feel of old school film cameras etc.
    So feel free to post your current film setup with photos and/or descriptions. Just remember to keep it updated if you get something new.
    cheers :)

    Can we use this thread to ask/learn about film as well?

    I've only really gotten into photography with digital cameras, but would love to get into film too.

    What's a good camera to look into to either utilise my existing Canon gear, or would it be better to be more 'exotic' and look at picking up an older complete set of film gear?

    Yeah sure why not.
    Also links to anything film related like cheap film/processing etc.

    As for camera suggestions, you could also check out the EOS Elan series, occasionally they'll go cheap on eBay.
    Depends what you want to spend though..
