Black&White or Color films are dead? Luckily no at all! On the contrary now there is revival. But..but…there is a “but”: for Black&White is very difficult to find a laboratory that is able to develop your films, so you have to develop and print them by yourself..and this is a very good new! Yes because, as you can see in the slideshow, the “come out” of the photo in the development is truly magic! If you cannot arrange a dark room in your house, you can develop the films and scan them.
For Color Films: there are always a lot of laboratory ( I mean in Italy ) that are able to develop the color film, but the prints are not so good ( generally speaking ) and, in any case, they scan the films and print them as a standard digital photo. So it’s better to ask only for scanning.
Recently I bought a Nikon F5 camera. On the 90’s it was the analogic top camera and it costs about 2.500$ (only the body!!). I found it at 400$ ! And it’s and incredible camera.
See this pictures: only a minimum of post production ( levels and contrast ) .. I waited 3 days for the develops…but to await a pleasure is itself a pleasure..
