    Great video and so, so true. I still have my first camera, a Praktica LB, from way back in 1973. It sits on a shelf in my room looking kind of obsolete and forgotten. Sad.

    At my school today in Interest Groups in Photography, the teacher put this video on to explain what Photography is about.

    I was born in 2003 and I got into photography about a year ago. I have a digital camera but one day I was on a hunt for some vintage cameras to use as room decor. After I bought one I stumbled across a leather case. After a bought it I opened it and I found my little treasure. An agfa isoly junior camera. After about two months of looking for film I finally found a type of film and it has such a special feeling to it. With digital cameras you don't think about too much. You're like eh,this would look good in a photo and take a couple of shots or more,because you can. But film is more expensive and it's limited. Before pressing the shutter you stop amd think. Would this be worth a frame? And that's what I love about film

    I take photography class and we use black and white film, developing our own pictures in the school darkroom. Nothing more exciting than finally seeing what you took pictures of anf being able to print as many as you want for friends. There's something beautiful about the graininess, the shades of black white and grey. I stopped taking so many selfies and pictures and take more that matter now. I recommend film photography to everyone, the more manual the more fun. šŸ™‚

    I think this might be something similar that happened with vacuum tube amplifiers. As a guitarist I would only ever want a tube amp for its organic sound, and I also love shooting film because of it's organic look. Back in the day when transistor amps were starting to hit the market you could get old tube amps for crazy low money, because everyone thought they would become obsolete and replacement tubes would disappear. That certainly is not the case, even with the digital emulations are getting quite good. Sounds quite familiar, doesn't it?

    Its so cool to watch this. I was born in 2001, and grew up seeing disposable cameras laying around the house and seeing commercials have a girl with one and kind of show off the newer digital coolpix cameras. Now a teenager with friends shooting with DSLRs, I started shooting with instant film and 35mm film for a year now, and its weird and funny. Not film photography but how people react in my I guess "generation" or age group. They'll be like, "can I see the photo" or "can we take picture" and explain them, well I have to get these developed and wont be seeing the real photos for about a week or more, and the films not that cheap so I can't really take another. I would get called hipster sometimes but also have people be like "whoa". And its so funny showing little kids. I know Im still a newb and crazy young but its just the reaction with other people having a film camera since its not as big as it was before.

    I shoot film, and I'm 17. Also, the camera they show a lot (Canon AE-1), I HAVE ONE :D. I also develop & print myself. It's amazing, personal, and my favorite medium for art.

    I'm taking B&W film photography in college, and I love it… Actually just did my first print thing last night, and I just found it amazing to be in the darkroom. Though, was not expecting to come out of it and find that pretty much the entire class had already left.

    And this is why I've started shooting film..though I love my Nikon D2x and have gotten some amazing shots with it after having (just for the fun of it ) a play with an old medium format 1936 Zeiss Ikon folding camera it woke something inside of me and now I have several medium format film camera's that get used more than my Nikon..I get so much more pleasure from shooting a roll of film than I do taking a 100 digital pics. Just something special about it I cant explain but I love.

    back in 2005 we had a camcorder that took small cassettes it was great, it was like new tech at the time, haven't used it since 2009 since well now just use our smartphones. and to be honest i'm glad because it means i can capture moments with speed which is great for me.
