    Default Retro Photography


    I am wondering if anyone still uses their old analog cameras to take slides.

    I still have two of my non-digital cameras that I would like to use again.

    Is this a lost cause today ?.

    Any advice ?

    Shooting film is definitely seeing a revival at the moment, especially amongst the younger crowd. Pop in to orms direct in Cape Town, they have a decent amount of film in stock and they would probably be able to service your cameras as well if needs be.

    What models are your two cameras?

    Hello Evacol,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did not realize that film shooting is once again becoming popular , I did contact Orms , and they were able to help with film stock , they also handle processing.

    I am returning to my analog cameras because my digital camera's (a Fuji 6800z) batteries have died on me and I cannot find replacements anywhere in South Africa.
    This will teach me not to buy proprietary technology in the future .

    At present I have two 35mm cameras , both "point and shoot" , I prefer these small cameras for day to day shooting.

    The one camera is an old Olympus Mju II , which has always given me very good results.

    The other one is a Konica Big Mini BM300 , it also gives quite good results , but in my view it is inferior to the Olympus.

    Batteries for these cameras are quite easily available as they both use the CR 123a battery.

    I also have a Pentax S1a , a nice camera , but unfortunately the cloth shutter and other seals have completely disintegrated from old age and the camera cannot be repaired .

    Now to find that Leica that nobody loves anymore
