I started shooting film in the 70's but as much as I hated making the change it was clear to me in order to remain employable I had to suck it up and learn all the in's and out's of the digital world,(and purchase a lot of new equipment) If your going to remain a force in photography you will just need to do the same.

It will be interesting to see if we can buy film in 20 years. I hope so, just on general principles.

One thing making it doubtful is that running a film plant is not only expensive, it is unbelievably expensive and complex. So it takes a big minimum market to sustain one. And nobody will do it for sentimental reasons. So we'll see.

I haven't shot a frame of 35mm film since 2004. I love the the total control digital gives one from camera to print. So now after 4 years of 100 percent digital I will moving back to film for some of my work but not 35mm. The price of good used medium format cameras are now with in my budget. I see film being around for years to come as we who cut our teeth on film will find our way back to our old friend. There is much joy viewing a 120/220 chrome on a light table as there is magic there that is missing with digital.

Mr. Keppler,
I have several old strobes in excellent condition (A Sunpak 3600 and a Vivitar 365) and had wanted to use them with my Canon EOS 3 35mm film camera. I then read something about the older flashes having high trigger voltages that most likiely would fry a circuit board in my EOS 3. What can you tell me about trigger voltages and where I find that information so I buy the right flash. Incidentally, I own a Mamiya RB67 and a 645, along with four older Canon 35mm AE cameras and I think I can use the flashes with them without damaging their electronics -- am I correct? Thanks very much.


protect a LCD screen on camera...
lcd screens come with a protective plastic sheet when you buy the camera. leave it on! cut film with a sharp and pointed XACTO
knife in indent around lcd. use clear tape on border of each side covering a bit of plastic protecter and most of tape overextended. again, carefully cut excess a bit beyond plastic border and remove excess. you
might look for similar thin plastic
to cover lcd again, when needed.
p.s. your column on simplicty above is correct. I never install camera software. first I create a folder where I will place my fotos. then I remove my card from the camera and insert in the proper flash slot on my PC. I download into folder created and drag fotos to the main folder of my pictures to reduce too many folders. the less programs you can get away with on your PC, the less problems you will get. programs like to stick their noses in other programs to create conflicts.
will look for you,again.
