I have a Minolta SR-7 I've owned since I was in middle school. I bought it at a garage sale and added a nice, telephoto lens. Takes AMAZING pictures. Sure, digital is convenient, but there's still nothing wrong with film cameras; especially if you're in a hostile environment. I could drag my Minolta through the Amazon rain forest, on fire or not, and my Minolta would keep on shooting. A digital camera would have to be hermetically sealed in such an environment.

So, don't be afraid to shoot film. It's retro. It's nostalgic. It's fun. And, yeah, you can mount your old lenses on a new, digital camera to boot.

Currently working on a 1970 Mach 1 project. See it here:
