They are just so much smoother and more natural looking in my opinion.......

I would love getting a GOOD analogue camara (Polaroid (Probably INSTANT would be the best as I reckon there is nowhere to develop it now (Unless ya had your own dark room I suppose)))

Re: Anyone like analogue photos?

my kids enjoy sitting with my mum and looking at old family photos in a photo album.

I've used photobox to make photo album books from digital photos as it's nice to have and hold, and easier to flick through them.

I think it wa 7 day shop were still selling film, but it was very expensive, as you say, I don't think you can just take it to the high street now and choose who has the best deal to get it developed, or send it off to one of those companies which returned your photos weeks later with a "free" film

My mum had a Polaroid, didn't use it much as cartridges were so expensive, was saved for special occasions, on holiday abroad where she wanted to be 100% she had that photo of that special moment

'Polaroid' and 'good' should never be used in the same sentence. Polaroids were a novelty purely for the instant results, and you can get that at a fraction of the cost from the cheapest mobile phone now, with better picture quality.

Re: Anyone like analogue photos?

I still have my 35mm camera (Konica FS-1) and all the lenses and filters that I loved to use. A full set of darkroom kit for B+W and colour. But it's all been sat unused for 20 years. I have several digital cameras too, but rarely take any photos.

Re: Anyone like analogue photos?

I used to be a keen photographer with my 35mm Nikon FT2 and a selection of lenses including my favorite 28-100 F3.5 zoom. Great all occasions lens.

Like Taf I've not done any film photography for years.

All my photographs in the albums were scanned into the PC at 4800dpi a few years ago. I bought an A4 flatbed scanner (HP Scanjet 5p) specifically for the project. Something like 4,000 pictures. Cross catalogued and accessible in seconds.

What's wrong with a pinhole camera? You can keep your megapixels.

The picture comes out the wrong way up. Rather like they do on iPhones.
