I love using film. I would far prefer to use it. Results in terms of colours, depth, clarity, all so much better. And you can scan prints in and then have all the flexibility of digital, no? However, I don't use film because I have no money, no job, pfft. It costs almost 10 to process 36 prints in the shop here, and I don't have any space or knowledge or money to set up a darkroom.

Yes. I've actually *started* using film more (as opposed to people who say they *still* use it) :)
Just recently got into medium format photography and shot my first few rolls of 120mm film.

I began using 35mm cameras for candid stuff, but have recently bought some more professional quality films (such as Portra or Ilford Delta) and have been using them for my professional shoots.
I own nearly 10 film cameras personally as I've started collecting them, and my boyfriend owns about 20 himself that I can borrow. :)

I still use it, both for my own reasons and professionally. That also includes motion picture. Please, have a look at my gallery. Most stuff you can see there are all analogue. Even my profilepicture. I just looooove film!
It's the four-lettered word that matters!

I do. I love being in the darkroom, and using film. I like digital too, and working in photoshop with the files, but it isn't the same.
There is just something different about the medium. I have to be so much more careful of what I take, that often I get better shots on my film than on my digital!
I hope I never have to stop using film. I find it very peaceful, to be in the darkroom working. I get to think, and really enjoy what I'm doing.
One of my favorite parts is watching the image appear in the developer.

That is really strange, I don't know why it would do that. I'll see if I can figure it out. I sent you an invite though ;)
