I still have four boxes of Kodak B&W IR 35mm that at some point in time will shoot again.

I have tried a few times to go back to film, and I just can’t make the leap. I bought a couple rolls of Acros for my Rolleiflex in my antique collection and I think I’ve taken 3 frames.Re: Santa Fe AdobeReply #4 on: February 15, 2021 at 11:06 am
And hence why mine are still in the freezer.

I still have and shoot with a Yashica Mat 124G TLR on occasion for the simple reason that it slows me down.
WLF (everything reversed) – check
Single, fixed-focus lens (zoom with your feet) – check
6x6cm frame – check
12 exposures/roll – check
I still have a number of 35mm cameras but I can’t imagine using them. Ironically, we did a photo shoot with the local photography group several years ago to celebrate 120 years of 35mm film. Most of the people in the group had never shot film before. It was quite comical to watch! No, there’s no rear LCD. You have to look through that little hole called the viewfinder. Yes, you have to move that thumb lever after every exposure. And so on.

Have and use the Hasselblad, 5×7 & 8×10 Deardorffs. Process my film in my recently expanded darkroom.
On 35mm – shoot digital for the most part.
I do like the image. Have shot IR from time to time and occasionally I get the bug and try it. Have even had a few IR camera bodies. Every time I take it out and shoot I get back, look at the results and think “why did I screw up my image this way?”. I like what others do with Infrared but I’m not the guy to do it. Over the years I have maybe two images in IR that I actually like… and that may be overstating the number.
