    Yes, sometimes.... especially when I shoot ppl that require me to develop pics for them or when I want to make comparison.

    yup, sometime. Can't afford fullframe (also not available in KM), just to make use of the wide angle.

    If I can actually obtain an old classic SLR down the track, it's something I might do.

    Thats what I did this morning...brought along my SLR and DSLR for a walkaround shoot. Mainly used my SLR for those ultra wide shot, that my DSLR cannot take. The sound of a film SLR shutter and the film winding is still music to my ears

    yes, i sometimes do carry both. just in case one fails. it's also quite interesting to compare the quality of two similar photos taken by both cameras.

    Can't agree more on the part whereby you say film SLR shutter and film winding sounds like music to the years.
    Do you find having to carry cameras of totally different recording medium a hassle and need getting use to ?
    How wide did you go with your Film SLR?

    For me, my film SLR is very light, so there isn't much weight difference. Of course, when I using film, I will pay more attention to prevent underexposure. And when using digital, I'll pay more attention to prevent overexposure.

    I find that using film once in a while is good as it helps to slow you down and makes you think more about each shot. I will really pay much more attention to my metering and composition, and thats why you can really test out how much you have learnt. Of course most of the time I will use digital.

    My widest lense right now is only 19-35, so most of time I will use the 19-28 range on my film camera.

    Sad but true. Not forgetting lots of film as well.

    That's y i liked the shutter sound too of my EOS 30 though the film rewind sound is virtually silent.

    I tried the 30D at the IT show today and the shutter sound's the same as the 20D. I find the shutter sounds of DSLRs rather 'fake'.

    When i went to collect my first roll of slides at Ruby Photo today, the person told me that shooting with film trains u up to be more confident of yr shots so when using digital will be very easy. Also the quality of film is still better than any DSLR....are these true?
