    So im looking at a camera thats stanard 35mm film and its from the 1950s. I love the look of the camera and im currently looking into reviews. I believe it is a point and shoot type camera tho…unless i read something wrong. Im also looking into instant photography abd getting a sun 600 lms because i had one as a child. Ive been told that i shouldnt start out with instant photography because i will have a lot of wasted photos. Advice?

    The trial and error thing is a good idea. I've just started shooting film, and it's very fun because it's a very different approach to photography. I've been taking photos with a DSLR for years now, so I'm quite experienced at shooting on SLR at this point and have good knowledge on how to properly expose photos. I've shot one role so far of 36 in colour as an experimental, but for my next role, I'm doing my best to write down my aperture, shutter speed, film ISO and exposure compensation settings for each photo I take to understand the turnout that my settings have on specific lighting situations. I love the feeling of a film camera in your hands 🙂 Great video!

    I have a cannon EOS rebel Ti and its from like the early 2000's does anyone know any info or tips for this camera? I've never really worked with any real camera before I've always used my phone so I'm kinda lost.

    I have a question about shooting film that I haven't seen anyone address ..and I've watched a LOT of film shooting videos ….When you shoot different film speeds how do you know how to adjust the aperture and shutter speeds to compensate for the different film speeds….I know most of the film cameras made in the 80's and 90's have built in compensation to meter for different film speeds but the old manual cameras that I own don't have that ….So generally speaking how do you know how to adjust shutter speed and aperture for different film speeds ? …Lets say you are shooting outside and using a 400 speed film with a 50mm f/1.8 aperture and 1000th shutter speed to get a proper exposure. ….then you switch to a 125 speed film with the same amount of light…How would you adjust to compensate for the 125 speed film ?…thank you ! …A great video by the way!!

    I would like to point out that medium format cameras start out at a few quid. A box camera on eBay goes for about £5. Or you can get a pre-lomography lubitel.

    Hello! So I'll be visiting Yosemite this month and wanted to know which film you would recommend. I have a 35mm Minolta maxxum qtsi camera, and dispite it's age it takes some great pictures. I'll mainly be shooting landscapes, but I also want to take some closeups as well (wildflowers and such!) I've tried out some different films, and I've gotten a feel for the type of picture I like, I love vivid colors and good contrast. What film would be best?

    Hey man,
    Great video. Thanks for sharing your experiences.
    My key take-away was that I need to start paying more attention to how different brands of film look like, where earlier I've just been loading and shooting with whatever was in my film box.
    From now on I will definately be noting more down, to get a better idea of what the actual end result might look like.

    Ohh and by the way – you have a great attitude and a likeability factor about you.

    Thanks

    About to buy a minolta X-9, there is no reviews on it but that's okay. I want to ask any photographers here if the camera is okay for amateur photographer like me to shoot with. Can an old camera use modern lens? I am still new hahaha.

    in terms of format, would it be much different to just take 35mm and crop it to square, VS taking medium format? I would love to know if there is any noticeable difference in quality..

    Very good advice for beginners. It is also very pleasing to see someone so young being so passionate about film photography. It annoys me when people say that film is dead, you are part of the proof that it isn't dead. Keep up the good work.

    I don't understand what you say about formats… Medium or large format… Is it the size of the film? I am new to this.
    I'm used to digital… Apsc or full frame sensor.

    Agree with all points. I Wanna, add a note, develop your films by yourself, is a must especially for black and white, is not so difficult, you need a dark room or a changing bag, the tank, the developer, stop bath, and fixer. and you can play, with different developers(ID11, Microphen, Rodinal and so on) use different concentration, recently i used ID11 in 1+3, but you can use it as stock, or 1+1, or 1+3, you can adjust the contrast a little bit(agitation, temperature, or developing time) so…. is for sure, the good choice, and i'm agree with different fornats, i'm using right now, 24×36 and 4.5×6, and i'll wanna try even 6×6 (I don't know yet what camera, but i started to look on internet for a good used Hasselblad, maybe the 500 cm model). In conclusion, i have to say, you gave good tips
