    A new site, funded by Fuji. According to some info there, they are resurrecting some discontinued films such as velvia 50 (sp?).

    Yeah, I just got into film a little while ago too. Im all about 120 in my Mamiyaflex, and even dug out the ol' Kodak box camera for kicks. Good times thus far.

    Well, I still have the darkroom... in my car :upeyes:

    I enjoy shooting film more than digital. The loading, unloading, advancing, the "click-swish" and the challange (can't see when I have missed a shot for a while).

    And lots of b/w film and chemicals...

    Maybe soon :supergrin:

    Ahh, the actual "cocking" of a mechanical shutter and hearing the familiar "click" when the film advance lever goes all the way home! I always yelled, "lock'n load!" in those days. But I'm going to do just that over the weekend. A friend challenged me to cover a shooting event using a vintage Zenit and a 300mm tele that's mated to an excellent "Tokarev-ish" pistol grip and wire-stock. I checked out the shutter and iris and it's still functioning. I'll see how it shoots and post some pics when I get back!

    I'm gonna go on "safari" or "photo-sniping"!!!!:banana:
