Old Schooler needs schoolin'

With the passing of my folks, I have acquired their cameras. Yashica Electro 35, Minolta Maxxum QTsi and a Canon T60. I've loved the pictures these cameras have taken, but was wondering if working with them is a dying art or a burgeoning frontier? I do love my digitals, but it seems there is a missing dimension or depth to the digital image. What do you think?

What film do they use?

I was told a couple years ago that 35mm will never die off. Too many people swear by it and say it's far superior to digital.

The Electro 35 is a wonderful camera. I picked up a couple about ten years ago. The film is available, but the processing of said film(in this area anyway) can be tough. Our local hardware store used to send the film out for 1 week processing, but they no longer do that.(No demand, they said - sad but true.)

Now the camera just sits on the shelf, along with a 1960's Pentax and a Mamiya Sekor with a 500mm zoom lens.

I still have my first camera complete in the original box. It's a Kodak Browning. Everything comes back. Hang onto them.

These are all 35mm... and they take great images. I appreciate the input!

I use to buy the B&W 35 mm in bulk and roll it myself and develop it with my pictures.. you can not get any of that stuff local anymore. with color film, it will get expensive as well, just trying to send it out for developing and of course buying the film. the instant gratification of digital and just uploading to facebook etc.. has killed it, even "professionals " all use digital now... but I also had boxes of pics, never looked at etc.. I would have loved to scan and move to a digital format.

I've got a room full of film equipment. Generally those that used them better understood the principles of photography. If you like to edit and/or send your images on the internet the digitals will probably serve you better, but I'm still mourning the loss of Kodachrome. Unfortunately, the action of the masses will likely diminish the availability of film further. Remember how the cheap money drove dear money out of circulation in the 1960s. I agree that there seems to be a missing dimension when digital replaces film. I suppose that is why some pros retained their film cameras and scanned the film to a digital version to be able to do their editing.

To the best of my knowledge, Ilford is still producing and selling their HP5, FP4, XP2, SFX, Delta, and Pan F Plus films, but finding them locally could be a challenge in some small places. Mail order should get all of them.
