    Since film is growing in popularity at the moment it makes sense to have a thread dedicated to it, so show off your photos taken on film - whether they were shot last week or fifty years ago - or just talk about film-related gear and techniques.

    Here are a couple random ones of mine. Not particularly great ones, but I'm working on scanning all of my negatives so these are what I've got.​

    All shot on a Minolta X-570 with a Minolta Rokkor 50mm f/1.4; first four are on Ilford Pan F, last two are Kodak Tri-X.​

    Hey glad you made a thread for this! Couple random photos shot on a Canon EOS Rebel.

    I really like using my film camera so I've been using it quite a bit recently. I used a friends tripod and got some long exposure shots, so I'm excited to get this batch developed as I'm just about done with the last roll. I also started playing around with the different filters and got a polarizer, so I'm excited to see how those look.

    Sorry to double post, but got another batch developed. I'm pretty upset though because out of 4 rolls of 24 each only about 15 pictures actually developed. A lot of them I was really excited to see as I started messing with all the filters I thought I had a couple good ones.. but oh well. Pretty sure my cameras shutter isn't functioning correctly, as all the longer exposure shots are the only ones that came out well, and the 30 second exposure shots all came out perfectly fine.

    So, I checked eBay and found that EOS Rebels are hard to find, as most are newer models like the S and XS, but I liked my Rebel and didn't wanna get a different one.. but I managed to find one with a zoom lens for $20!

    Another batch of film, definitely my favorite shots I've gotten thus far. Few of my favorites.

    I really really like these low light shots 27220797959_8dcabd1000_o.jpg 25127091598_18ae0eaa7b_o.jpg 27220806369_60bdd2f19e_o.jpg 38111344375_b1cf85ae55_o.jpg 25127276688_179c8d67d8_o.jpg 38111373815_00ba58c5fb_o.jpg 25127313578_617980d17f_o.jpg 25127306498_7a8a0ef130_o.jpg

    Does instant film count? :O

    I like how these two turned out. Taken with a Polaroid 660 I got recently.

    This one got bent accidentally but it still came out alright. :)

    Forgot about this thread. Have a couple shots I liked from a few recent batches of film I had developed.

    Also got a new camera, a Minolta XGM, and I'm really happy with how nice the colors look. However the original one I bought is having issues with the advance lever, and the replacement body won't even turn on.

    Edit: Messed around with my XGM tonight, got the original one with the screwy advance lever to function again!

    Few film photos I took with a Minolta XG-7 and Fuji 200 at my local cars and coffee. :)
