I gave it up years ago due to the cost of processing. i used to do a lot of street/documentary photography using a Nikon F3HP and Nikon glass but that style can be very wasteful and I just couldn't keep up with the cost as home processing wasn't an option.

Anyone else still use celluloid?

I've still got my film cameras but the last time they were used was for one of the kids school projects several years back.

The only one I'd be tempted to wheel out would be a manual twin lens reflex using 120 roll film. I can't see myself using 35mm again

Camera phones are so good these days that the Nikon bridge camera with super zoom I received for a long service award only comes out a couple of times a year (birdwatching and holiday landscapes)

I had an immaculate Leica M2 with two Summarit lenses and a Leica light meter. All in a Leica leather case.

Swapped the lot for a Nikon D80 camera, when I fancied going digital.

One of the most stupid things I've ever done.
