    If it's therapy, you need them, don't let anyone tell you otherwise ;)

    In fairness, there aren't that many new film cameras to review at the moment and those that have been, like the Nikon F6 and the Zeiss Ikon have been covered in AP fairly quickly. That said, there have been new films and much updated versions of several old films lately, like Kodak Portra, which it would be useful to see properly reviewed. After all, one of the nice things about film cameras has always been that the film makers upgrade them regularly.

    99.999 Digital. My 14 +, various film devices are safely packed away awaiting the 2050 Christies sale of antique technology. Probably be full of ipods though.

    Where do these people who keep talking about the high cost of developing ETC go, pro labs? Jessops?

    I use my digital virtually every day - but I spend longer with my film cameras as film costs more, and I'm not made of money. As a result, pictures shot on film tend to be more considered, better technically and 'artistically' - although I have found ways to fool my fully auto digi compact into doing what I want it to. :)

    If I had S5 Pro I'd probably not use film quite as much, but I'll never give it up.

    A review of the new Velvia, and possible comparison to the old one would be nice.

    I'll second that.

    Maybe a comparison to Velvia 100 too, or would that be taking things too far? :D

    Can you still get the old velvia? I wonder if anybody out there would part with some of their stash for a test? I'm alright...I don't have any ;)

    I wouldn't mind comparing 800z with superia 800....I have some on order to play with down the bike trails when the weather is grim :D

    Why would you have rolls of film in the freezer? :D

    I always kept film in the fridge much to the annoyance of the wife - nowadays I keep the compacts in there to keep the sensors cool for those noise free shots ;)

    Peter, I have found fridge and freezer drawers to be more hassle than they are worth....you can fit more in when you don't have them /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I think that's what the ladies of the night say about drawers, too...


    As a vintage photographer I still use 70% film and 30% digital.
    Aesthetically I find digital inferior to film and although digital is the future I think it still has a long way to go until the main body of digital photographers, either amateurs or pro, change their line of reasoning towards the digital mean and come in terms with the ethos of analogue photography as it developed and flourished in the 20th century.
