    OT (Slightly): Fim Photography

    Being a photographer, one of my favorite things to do is shoot film. I have a couple old cameras lying around (Argos Argoflex, Kodak brownie) and want to start shooting with them this season but have no clue as to where one achieves film for such cameras.

    Posted in passion cause photography, as shared by many of you, is my passion coupled with biking.... Plus it doesn't exactly fit anywhere else . Hopefully there's some shutter guys out there with some info.

    Mods feel free to delete/move whatevs as you see fit

    Here's some film shots to appease the mtbr karma

    Film is awesome...and so are your shots.

    But film seems to translate poorly to the web because by definition, you have to digitize it--save a step and use a good DSLR.

    Film prints are best seen in person.

    But of course, only my opinion.

    By all means, I've actually been planning on having to re-spool for a while now. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't looking over some alterior option.
