Nice photo's, I like gear porn

I just got a "7", fantastic camera, don't think I "need" a "9", but who knows what's in my future

The mother of the A900 and A99's .. well captured. Can you still get film for it?

Oh yes, see here how much film is still shot on these old Minolta and other brand film cameras.

Really? Are you serious? Apart from the current Film challenge, you can get film from all the major camera stores in the Netherlands:
Kamera Express
CameraNu
Nivo-Schweitzer
Calumet
Cameraland

So, no excuse to not join the film challenge

7 is nice because of compatibility with SSM lenses. The 9 had an upgrade option, mine was not upgraded though. Went through 2 rolls, camera feels great in the hand.

Yep, film is readily available depending on where you're at!

Really had no idea film was still available. I have a very small Minox spy camera and took that to a photo store about 15 years ago. Within minutes the whole crew was around me to see this thing, but no film (although that was a tiny film cassette). Good to see the normal sizes are available.

Film is available for the Minox Spy Camera - eg here - but it is stupidly expensive.

If you got a space that can be made dark you can just cut your own film from either 35mm film or 120 film with a slitter and load your own cassettes .
Loading your own means you'll need to develop them yourself otherwise you'll not get the empty cassettes back which you need to reload .

Amazing.... We have a film challenge, we have a themed film thread and we have a dedicated film camera sub-forum for years.

Anyway, get a proper film camera. City Foto has a nice 7xi with 28-105xi lens for 49,-. Get a roll of film - you can drop it off at your local Hema for basic development and scanning.
