@ozziehoffy Love the smoke effect! :)
posted May 24th, 2013
@ozziehoffy Very nice shots too1 That smoke effect is great indeed..
posted May 24th, 2013
@grizzlysghost Thanks... that was easy too. I had another idea but I need to make sure that the camera really is dead before I do it.
posted May 24th, 2013
@anzere03 The smoke was easy :) Way easier than I expected it to be.

@aprilmilani serious stuff. I give mine to Walgreens and ask for a CD. I know it's heresy for a film purist :-)

@httpgeffed My cameras were bought used, and look like they have been used quite a bit. I often wonder how many memories they created before I got them

@aprilmilani Love your little Contessa! :)
posted May 24th, 2013
@grizzlysghost My first SLR was a Ricoh just like that...I should have kept it, I miss it.
posted May 24th, 2013
@grizzlysghost That little contessa has been the biggest pain in my butt to learn. But wow oh so fun. She won my heart. Corny I know.
posted May 24th, 2013
@grizzlysghost that one is so pretty!!
posted May 24th, 2013
Not pretty, not impressive, and not ancient - but my first ever camera and a gift from my mother that I treasure. C1985 Kodak Cross 110.

I can't remember the name of my favourite film camera, but I did find a picture of one that I used up until I switched to digital. I can't bear to part with it!



Hopefully that worked!
