Recently, I’ve added a new toy to the collection, a borrowed one, and very awesome. I was hanging out at a friend’s place, talking about photography with his parents, when his mom brings up the subject of film photography.
I had to admit that I never took photos with film before (well, I did, but not with a SLR, or since I started to get interested in photography), which made her reach inside a closet and pull out this huge camera bag packed with equipment.
She put the bag in front of me and told me to keep it, to play with it for a while.
I couldn’t be happier.
So now I’m experimenting with film, we shall see how that goes. I already took some exposures, and will have them processed by the end of the week. Luckily I just got hold of a negative scanner, I’ll keep you guys on the loop.
Ah, here is the gear:
Minolta X-700 film camera
Sigma 70-200mm f4.5
Minolta 50mm f2.0
Magnicon 28mm f2.8
Nissin 360WX flash
Several film rolls, both B&W and color.
