Would anyone be interested in another "One Third Keepers" Film Challenge again?

I have been neglecting my 35 and 120 mm film cameras, not to mention my home developing and scanning paraphernalia. Every now and again I browse the Film Challenge Index and would love to be a part of a Dyxum film collective again. It doesn't have to be 1/3 keeps, there are quite a few listed in the Index and I'd be game for any of them (except infrared which I don't have).

Hoping to see a response from the old guard or any relatively new members who used to use, and still have, A-mount film cameras (or any other mount!), or are you happy to leave them in a cupboard for another year?

Now I think it's time to set up a new film challenge - following the example of 2021-2022. Thank you, Brian, for the reminder.

I will circulate an invitation thread with the mods and set it up ASAP.

This reminds me , I haven't developed the colour film from my Minolta XD 7 I used for the Minolta SR mount anniversary challenge in March !

I'd be interested in something , depending on timescale , as I don't have a lot of free time at the moment .

Something lasting a year should be doable !

Thank You both for response. Very encouraging.

Neil, I agree that time scales should be generous for film. Taking worthwhile images, rather than lame desperation shots to meet a deadline, getting the film strip by whatever means and turning them into digital images for posting here is not a quick process.

There are a good few regular film users on Dyxum, who I admire and enjoy seeing their work, and I’m hoping they will join us through 2023/24.

Interesting :)

I am beginning to think about analog again, so during the next year or so I may even have something to show ;)

Yes, I am slow with some things.
