I'm currently shooting digital using micro 4/3, and I'm a member of Amin's sister site (Mu-43). Im not sure what it is that continues to draw me towards film, maybe the years before the mast, as it were, maybe the process (I had a dark room, but that's long gone), the smell of the chemicals, the latent images appearing like magic out of the witches brew. But more than anything I liked the simplicity of the manual camera, ISO set by film (could be pushed), aperture and shutter speed fully under user control, manual focusing ... The list could go on. I have a Pentax MX (not the best camera on the planet) and a number of lenses at my disposal. What deters me is the digitisation of the processed film, but I hope to get inspiration here. I really covet a Leica, maybe an M6. Ok the cost of the body is sort of manageable (as long as I don't tell the wife) but the glasswear is phenomenally expensive, and living in the UK doesn't really help when it comes to prices (to put it in perspective, I find the numbers after the $ and £ are used interchangeably, without taking into account the exchange rate. ) Cheers. Steve.
