Going back in time

Well I decided to pull out our old (very old) film camera and try my hand at it. So I got it out and made sure there was some film and went out to take some pic. Hopefully I will get them developed soon and they will come out good so I can scan them and have something to post. :)

So a little bit about the camera, it's a Canon AE - 1 Program. I have 2 lenses (a 50mm like seen above and a 150mm lens) both manual focus and no zooming capabilities. There are NO automatic thing on the camera, after taking a pic you have to flip a lever to spin the film to the next frame. You have to chose what aperture to use manually, there is no built in light meter. I am still figuring out the shutter speed stuff but I am sure it will come to me soon enough.

So stay tuned for some film pics in the next week or so. :D

I think you got the wrong HTML. ;)

Do you have any idea where I could get an old film camera like that, besides ebay? I sometimes like how I can manipulate a film camera better than my DSLR (at least until I learn it better), and have been looking for one for about a year but to no avail!

@Nellie I don't know about an "old" film camera but nikon still makes a film camera.
