Hey guys I plan on buying a film camera pretty soon because I like the look that film cameras give alot better than those that my D90 gives me. I have no experience with film and I know nothing. I really like the look of Sagan Lockhart's pictures and would like to achieve that grainy look that alot of his photos have. How can this be done?

Thanks. What camera would you recommend to someone who is an extreme beginner and knows nothing about film photography? I've been told to get an SLR. My impression was that 35mm is the way to go, but someone (who knows a hell of alot more than I do) told me that 28mm is better because of the wide angle it gives.

edit: Just spoke to Sagan. He said he doesn't use any particular film. He said he uses cheap and professional film, but sometimes he gets it dirty before running it through a filter to get that grainy, dusty look.

go with 35mm if you can only have 1 lens

28mm might be too wide for some things

slr gives the most control, but sagan mostly uses a point and shoot. camera doesn't matter though. it's the lens

Okay thanks. A guy in my area (on Craigslist) is selling a Nikon N50 on Craigslist for $30, would that be a camera to start with? Seems like for $30 you can't go wrong.

picked up all of these yesterday from a few thrift shops. didnt pay more than $5 for any of them.







currently running film through the black stylus, the stylus epic zoom, and the canon wp-1. took the wp-1 to the beach today for some underwater/surf shots. stoked on that thing. anyone have experience with the original stylus? i dont know if it is having focus issues or not but the green focus indicator never blinks, it always says that there is an object in focus, even when i cover up the lens or when i try to use it in the dark when i know it couldnt see what to focus on.

I think I have decided that Costco is the best option in my area to get my film developed. They offer an option for your prints, though: glossy or matte. Which would you guys suggest? I will be scanning them to put them on my computer, so take that into consideration.

I scan glossy costco prints examples. everything since july is a gloss costco print scan

I think costco has lustre instead of matte. it scans better and has better quality than matte, but people say its colors are not quite as good as glossy. still keeps the fingerprints off

I think this guy scans matte prints but i am not sure. the results look good so i may give it a try

@bkbrown Okay thanks. Your scans look good, I guess I'll go with glossy. I was worried there might be some kind of glare as a result of scanning.

@brandoq that flower picture smokeyface smokeyface smokeyface

Edit: After reading a lot of glossy vs. matte comparisons, I decided for my ISO 800 film I'm gonna get matte prints and for my ISO 200 I'm gonna get glossy prints.
