I got given this lot yesterday, so looks like im going to have to put a film through it to make sure all is ok, first time ive had anything to do with film in over 20 years, got given it in a kewl retro shoulder bag and was surprised when I opened it to find this little lot

Minolta X-700, Minolta 35-70mm, Vivitar 80-200mm, Sunpak Auto300, Hoya 55m Polarizer and a few other bits and bobs in the bag, (a cafe receipt from 1981 :D ) its all in beautiful condition as well

Im very happy considering it was all for nothing

Well now for some fun with film. I just hate paying for each frame I shoot. I have to admit there is something nice about the results you get from film.

I've been playing with film for a while now and find it a real hassle. It's great fun though ;)

I did this many years ago but just dont have the time/space or money to do this now although im sure I could pick up the stuff fairly cheaply, although I havnt discounted it altogether, I see more junk in my future :D

An alternative is to find a lab that develops and mounts E6 slides. You can scan them, or you could project them onto the silver screen. About 30 years ago I started on Kodachrome 64 and Ektachrome. I'm really glad I did. Projecting slides in a family gathering is a blast. Today I 'm still using E6 slides (Kodak ELITE Chrome 100), one of several slide films available out there. It costs about $5 to have a roll of 24 developed and mounted.
