  • Going Digital

    Durango omelette, please

    Back in September, I wrote about how the explosion in digital photography had created some bargains for film SLRs. I benefited from this myself, when my mother in law upgraded to a new Canon digital SLR, and gave me her old film camera.

    This, together with the natural desire to take lots of pictures of my young daughter, rekindled my interest in real photography - after I’d been distracted for years by the ease of digital point-and-shoots. And I got some shots I was really happy with.

    I was right - getting hold of cheap (or in my case, free) film SLR is a good way to start taking more pictures, and now is a great time to get hold of one. But I was also completely wrong, in ways I’ll now describe.
