    Nice score !

    Whats the mount ? You'll have to get an adaptor and see how the lens performs on m43's.

    Hmm. I should really dust off my Leica R3, change a battery and shoot a few frames, shouldn't I?

    ...until you have to start buying film. Remember film? Oh and developing. All adds up over time. An 8Gb SD Card costs less.

    But yes, the price of digital hardware seems so much more. With analog you can take top quality pictures with a simple rangefinder and a good roll of film. With digital you need to pay top money to get the top of the range hardware even with a simple prime lens.

    I agree Ian but its fun.. I bought a Kodak film for AUD 3 and developing 24 shots will cost around 10 dollars. Its just for fun. Its a different feeling.I am learning to be patient . This digital era has made us hyperanxious and impatient .

    I have one of these and it's great. My first SLR was a KR-10 (not "Super") in 1981. I shot medium format and rangefinders before that.

    That KR-10 proved to be tougher than it's all-plastic shell goodness seemed to promise. It was once punched off my face -- literally -- when I was photographing a brawl and it went bouncing across a parking lot. Cracked the top plate (which I covered with a piece of electrical tape) and kept on giving for another decade before giving up the ghost in 2001.

    A lot of KR-10's were sold with the 50mm f/2 Rikenon, but the f/1.7 is just that much better.

    Yes. I guess I could still cope. But not as far as the darkroom though. But I guess scanning in is OK.

    The next generation cameras are getting so retro, you'll not be able to see the pictures you took until you send the SD card in to be developed!

    Here's the one I currently have. I fixed the shutter and replaced the film rewind lever that's shown missing here.

    Next is a photo I took just after my youngest daughter's birth in 1992. I didn't get any pictures of the birth because I was involved in other ways, lol. There were difficulties so we moved from a birth center to a hospital but all the doctors and nurses were involved in emergencies so the midwife (shown here) and I were the only ones doing the birth. The nurse in the background showed up at then end as the midwife was stitching up the episiotomy (which I may not have spelled correctly, lol).

    That was taken on some very grainy ASA 1000 color print film.

    That camera served me well through many times of my life.

    TRAITOR! When I saw the author, I felt sure it was an older OM camera. Now you ditch it for some other brand? How dare you call yourself an Olympus fanb*y?!

    :drama: {Insert row of various smileys here} :drama:

    Well here's an Olympus ******: OM-1, OM-10, 2- XA's and and X-A1. Along with my E-M5.


    I haven't shot much film for a month, because though I have the film, I'm broke and can't buy paper to print. Set up a small darkroom again a couple of months ago, because I missed having access to one, especially since I got my Hasselblad 500 CM, a really sweet machine by any standard. And those Zeiss lenses. Wish I could afford some Zeiss lenses for my rangefinders (and adapt them to the E-M5)

    Here's a couple taken with the OM-1. As an old leftie, I sent the first one to our governor at the time, telling him that though I thought it was a funny coincidence, I also meant it. (He wrote back to me -- thanking me for the humor, but not promising to change his stripes!)

    The second is of an old, abandaned gas station that I found very photogenic.

    I love shooting film. It's a whole different experience, and I find having no access to the images that I've just shot until the film is processed is liberating, and it makes me meter my shots more carefully.

    So load that camera up with film, Bhupinder, and share some of the results with us!
