    waiting for the results to develop... LOL! You do realise that they invented something called digital cameras some time ago, so you can just put something called a memory card in your something called computer and voila!

    In what century are you living?

    And we all know about ipods, CDs and whatnot but doesn't stop some people from using vinyls! There is definitely a different quality to film that digital cannot reproduce.
    Most people can point and shoot with a fancy digital camera and come out with an alright shot but film takes more skill and experience. Maybe VJ is a arty farty type!

    Ah, crap, you must be one of those 100 folks who land up in Hong Kong park on weekends with their fancy-shmancy cameras and click a thousand pictures of the fish and turtles. I must sound like a crazy to you, but I keep thinking : why duplicate the effort? Can't just one of you take the pics and post the link to the other 99, who can then actually enjoy being in the park on a weekend?!

    Is the lens for helping you to admire SS from afar?

    Yup, more information is on MS Optical Super Triplet Perar 3.5/35 | japan exposures

    (Japan Exposures is a great site for camera gear, btw. Not a p0rn site as I originally thought )

    Well, as far as I'm concerned, you can put your something in your something!

    Each film/lens has it's own character which you can't replicate digitally. And I'm not an arty-farty type (whatever that may be), just a purist.

    Jacky, the camera I use the most is a mamiya C330. Combine this with a good quality film and you have a quality and tone of photo unmatched by any consumer DSLR. It really is a magical experience.

    What happens when they stop making film which is in about +/-5 years? Isnt this a diminished return?
