@Fred_S ... beautiful color shots! They may feel like unmotivated grab shots for you, but it gives me a sense of time and place. Things look different in the Netherlands vs. here in southern California. I enjoy seeing the world through the eyes of other Dyxum photographers. I need to shoot a roll of color soon! I have shot a full roll of color in over 15 years!

I just developed a roll of Ilford HP5, shot in April. Posting frames now ... might as well keep this 2019 film thread going, right?

Thanks Art! Much appreciated. Fully agree that is so nice to see the world through the eyes of other members.

You did well with your BW shots! A nice and diverse set of pictures, showing me another part of the world I haven't seen yet.

Thanks, Fred_S! I have a roll of Kodak Ultramax 400 loaded in my Maxxum 9. Maybe I'll get through it before 2019 wraps up. Keep shooting, all!

Thanks for the DPC info. I need to visit Dyxum more often! I don't have enough time to enter unless I re-purpose a recent picture. We'll see ...

Went out today to finish off my first film for decades - which I loaded into the camera (Dynax 60) on Christmas Day. For some reason I thought I had 15 shots to take - so it was a bit of a surprise when the film ran out after 3! More of a surprise was that the local photo shop does a 1 hour turnaround (develop & print). So here are my 8 'keepers' - I'm happy enough with the images if not the quality.

Great job, Phil Wood!

-- In image 2, what does ER stand for?

-- Is that live fire in 3 and 5? That one barrel is pointed the wrong way in 5!

-- Also, was 3 and 5 at a special event?

ER = Elizabeth Regina (Queen Elizabeth), post boxes are marked with the current monarch in this way, back as far as Victoria (1837-1901) are easily found, earlier ones are rare.

3 & 5 were shot at a small local Sealed Knot event - they are firing blanks (if that is the right term for musketry without a ball). The Sealed Knot is an English Civil War re-enactment organisation, national but with particular connotations around here (Newbury) where there were two major Civil War battles in 1643 and 1644. As I was shooting film (and am a cheapskate) these are the only two shots I took. Next time they are about I will take a digital body!

Thanks for the info, Phil. Let me know if you post more shots from a Sealed Knot event.

Agree about film, the marginal cost is about $1 per shot for the film purchase through processing. Near zero for digital, right? But, I do enjoy shooting film!

Not quite $1 but getting close - nevertheless, I am sure I have spent a lot more on digital than film in my life, but equipment comes under a different department in my brain! I guess digital still wins on a per shot basis.

I did enjoy the discipline that resulted from the combination of cheapskatery and 'one third keepers'. I suspect my digital snapping would benefit from a bit more forethought and planning - I have lost count of the number of times I've looked at an image in LR and thought 'why on earth did I use that aperture/ISO/speed'.

Yes, Phil, there's the "total cost of ownership" consideration too. I haven't bought a camera in a while now -- my A77ii is the newest, SRT-101 the oldest. For me, the A6400 is on my radar though.

Regarding total costs, I *think* I've spent more on film, film gear, and processing over the years (I'm old), but have purchased many digital cameras. Those early digitals required upgrading very frequently. For me, 2010 was a pivotal year for digital since the quality was "good enough". I still use my NEX-3 that I bought in 2010. I was so hesitant to go to mirrorless, but it's the form factor I use most often nowadays. Sticking with APS-C for now, although I would love to find an A99ii for cheap so that I don't have to buy new lenses to get full-frame.

Yes, I wish I had a little more discipline with digital since there are times I dread importing into LR knowing there is a bunch of junk in there. Maybe I need to have a 1/3 keepers rule for my digital shots too!! I shoot sports sometimes though and the hit rate there can be really low. Although our cams have cool burst modes, I never go there. Ha.

First roll: as mentioned some comments back I had some issues with it in the darkroom with getting it onto a spool..probably because it sat in the camera across warm to cold to cold to warm and so over several months. Thus 8 pics not 12. Srry. All shots with the Dream L-..eh, Voigtländer 35 2.5 : )

Canon 7, Tri-X 400, Caffenol-C.
