    I have two(2) cameras with film in 'em (a Konica Hexar and an Ashaiflex II) and, possibly, a third camera (PZ-1 .... somewhere). I believe the film will have been
    in them from somewhere around the mid-2000's. I have been meaning for the last
    several(ish) years to take 'em out and finish the rolls ......... if only just so I can see
    what's on them;)

    I have had digital cameras of varying standard but I have now gone back full time to using film./ I am fortunate still to have all my darkroom equipment in full running and working order. Cameras used all Nikon F601. 2 x F80's and a F100 with an assortment of lenses

    Colour printing - no problem with film and paper by Fuji and RA4 chemicals from Kodak (now manufactured in China) C41 developer/blix from various sources.

    Black and White - no problem with almost as much available now as there was 20 years ago, you only have to send for it by mail order.

    I have also started using slide film again. This has really taken a hit, but the 3 cassettes I have processed in the past 2 weeks proves to me that no projected digital image comes even close to a well exposed, sharp and fully saturated E6 transparency.

    Well done John !! There are thousands of members of 'Flickr' all over the world who use film including me -- I have been photographing today with my little free gift MINOX 35GT loaded with outdated HP5+ -- in my Mamiya C220 I have Ilford Delta 100, in my FED 4 some 2005 dated 'Tudor' ( FUJI) 100 rated at 64 ASA, in my Canon AE1 some Tri-X of 'Dubious date' -- I have my darkroom gear ready and have just been given a nice Hoya 60mm f4 enlarging lens I am waiting to try! :cool::cool::cool:
