Film photography appears to be on the rise, maybe people are finding that they are do not print those important pictures of their children, their family pets and when uncle Stan had his 100 birthday etc...With film photography you simply have to print the images to see the results, you also have the advantage of holding in your hand a negative of the image, thus meaning that you have a physical picture and no matter how much technology changes there will always be a method of copying that format. With digital, whether you save it on your hard drive, pen drive or in a cloud it may get lost, deleted or accidentally shared with others. Film photography has a certain appearance that digital can just not emulate, it gives better definition in highlighted areas and gives gorgeous contrast in the low keys when needed. Vintage cameras are being sold every day to users , enthusiasts and collectors, many people still using 16mm and 110 films, they use these by chopping down 35mm film ( in the dark ) and re-load them into pre-opened 110 or 16mm cartridges...that's dedication for you!. We recently sold a Kodak autographic vest pocket camera ( the soldiers camera ) circa 1917 to a gentleman who wanted to go back to the trenches and retake the photographs of the old battlefields in modern times with the exact camera soldier would have used almost 100 years ago and the results were outstanding, these superb and emotional images can be viewed on our website where we have a customer photography section. We are a little concerned that many images of today when taken with digital cameras will not be visible in years to come, so for prosperity's sake...use a film camera from time to time.
