    My A.Net shots in date order. Pre-1990 shots are primarily Kodachrome and Agfa slide.

    Afga?! Barf..

    Na just kidding as I never really been a fan of Afga brand of film.

    I shoot with film "almost" exclusively..

    - Nikon EM body
    - Nikon 28mm lens
    - Tamron SP 60-300mm Macro lens
    - Hakkuba Polarizer Filter

    I used to shoot with alot of prints but quality from their scans have been dissapointing thesedays so I switched to slides, and even now I am thinking of going back to prints after a huge chunk of my Slide shots from my vacation trip was destroyed.

    - Fuji Superia 100 shot on mundane spot trips.
    - Fuji Reala 100 Shot most often.
    - Fuji Provia 100F
    - Fuji Sensia 100 shot on mundane spot trips.
    - Kodachrome 64 Shot most often.

    I also shoot with an Olympus C750UZ Digital Camera on regular planes. It's never used for my best shots cuz I don't trust it.

    Many of my recent addons were by digital so this is by most popular, which is basically all film.

    Vzlet, have you tried Velvia? The while the 50 is good, the 100F is better. I tried the regular Astia 100 (frickin' Ritz camera gave me the wrong stuff) and the colors are great, so I plan to try the 100F soon, maybe next.

    I hope film shooters will always remain uploading at A.net.
    Yes, it can still be done: look at some of the links in this tread  Big thumbs up

    And as for shots, well only 1 is a slide, the rest are with my wife's 2 megapixel Canon A60 so I won't post the link! The slides will come, once the decision gets made between the Nikon Coolscan V or the Minolta Dual Scan IV...

    Olympus OM-4 with motor drive, OM-2 and OM-1, and an XA

    Lenses: 40mm, 85mm, 75-128mm, and a 300mm, plus a few others I never use.

    I used to be rather fond of Kodak Ektapress and T-MAX or TRI-X. The Fuji color film I have used is just so much better, even the cheaper stuff.

    When I have money again I will be going all digital (I am leaning towards Canon), sad to take the real art out of photography but film processing is getting more expensive due to declining demand and black and white film and chemicals are starting to become hard to find.

    Nikon F90x (soon F5)

    and now the D70 has come into play...  Smile

    Although I shoot almost 99% still on Kodachrome 64 these days...

    Jeff,

    Don't bother with the Coolscan V - I tried that route and it (pardon my french), sucked ass. First off, it's a slow unit, and you'll never get the right colors - and their Nikonscan software is a pain in the you-know-what. I've gone back to using my trusty old SCSI model of the S20, and things couldn't be better  Big grin

    Ok, in addition to the original topic, why K64? What's so great about it? IMHO most of the Fujichromes are sharper and finer grained.

    Kodachrome slide film has stood the test of time. If taken care of and stored properly, they will last a lifetime. I have a few shot in the 50's&60s that look like they were shot yesterday as my dad kept them in a dark, sealed slide carousel case for 50 yrs. Fuji film hasn't been around long enough to stand the test of time. It may prove to work out the same, but only time will tell.

    I've gone digital, but still have the Canon 750 and Nikon F70.

    Normally use Fuji superia 100 and Provia, as Kodak stuff is hard to find where I'm at.

    In the aviation photo bag:
    Nikon F100

    Nikon 80-400 VR
    Nikon 35-105

    Sitting in the closet:
    - two N2000s, N2020, N8008, N90s
    - 50mm, 28mm, 75-300 AF, 100-300 MF, 35-105 MF + some other lenses

    Film:
    Provia 100F (100%!)

    I use the D70 under the following circumstances:
    - bad weather
    - digital shots following film shots (time permitting)
    - long range shots (take advantage of that 1.5x factor)

    why K64? What's so great about it?

    K64 is an obsolete film. People keep using it because it's the slide traders standard and no one is willing to take the first step away from it. K25 was far and away a much better film but it's long gone.  Sad
