Just dug out an old 35mm slr and bought an 80-200 f3.8 lens for it (£35) and some cheap Ilford B+W obviously I will have developing costs on top but I feel enthusiastic about shooting on film again. Anyone else still shooting film or taking the step back to the good old days? Any advice would be helpful especially on scanning/photoshop.

Use Google...the web is littered with sites with info on film and scanning techniques. PS: Have a look at the forums on fredmiranda.com

I was sorting out in an old sideboard and found my Canon SLR and a pack of Fugi 35mm colour film last month. The date on film is 2005...I had completely forgoten it was there. For a laugh, I popped a film into the camera and some new batteries. The auto wind on the camera was a bit reluctant to work at first, but has cleared now. It felt great !! I used to love my outings with a roll of film. I'm going to send them up to get them developed. I understand the colours may 'run' or 'bleed' because of the date and age of the film ..but it will be interesting to see what happens..modern art photos ....Time will tell...... The Norfolk Bargee.

I shoot film alongside digital - I use ag-photolab.co.uk and get process and med res scans usually for 35mm as I have a Nikon Coolscan 5000 and rescan the best shots to high res.
For Process & Scan to 100meg is £10.49 35mm 120 220 sizes.
Quick turn round and free postage to send.
End of endorsement.

Never LEFT the 'Good Old Days'.... but unlike all you young guys I still have good stock of 5 X 4 PLATES to play with and a super Zeiss Double Protar (Circa 1903) to cover them with the sharpest pics you have EVER seen... But the D300 and 800 have to do the usual chores...

I used an old Minolta camera a couple of months back with my 11-18mm lens and had strange but nice results shooting exotic cars.

I've now began using a nice old Pentax and intend using it on a model shoot if I ever get the time.

There's quite a few in my camera club that have started using film again.
