    what is a film camera?

    Are these cameras that my parents have, that you put a roll of film in a camera and have them processed in a store? What kind of setting (street?) would you use film cameras for?

    thanks

    oh damn forgot this is a dslr discussion board

    Rooz,
    That's exactly my reaction.
    In the future, say in the next 10 or 20 years, we will hear lots of 'WHAT'S A FILM CAMERA?', but right now as in 2007; it's just too early.

    I don't think its really a joke. My oldest is 8, has a camera and loves photography.... He has NEVER encountered a film camera, and I think there are lots of 15 year olds in the same place.

    He also wonders why I say "Album" all the time, has never seen a cassette tape, and doesn't know there are 2 George Bush-es...

    LOL! Don't forget 8-track tapes.
    I'm so happy I learned before there were digital cameras. I think digital shooters are spoiled. I still have a tendency to use a tripod for everything since all I used to use was Kodachrome25 or Pan-F.
    I read an article a while back for ~$100 software that introduced grain replicating different types of film.

    Another one to ponder -- two years ago I purchased a 1972 Chevy K-20 pickup, similar to my first vehicle many moons ago.

    Plop my seven and five year old daughters in for a ride and I roll down the drivers side window. My seven year old looks at me in amazement and asks, "Dad, what are you doing?"

    I say, "rolling down the window" realizing that she has never seen manual-crank windows.

    She says all wide-eyed, "Wow! Can I do that?"

    At this point I'm laughing and say, "yes, you can roll-down your window"
