To try something a little different at Rock the Garden this year, I decided to carry a compact film camera along side my two big DSLRs. While the Nikon D800 got some great images, bringing a film camera out with just two rolls of B+W film was a lot of fun. I've posted just a few from the day. I carried my dad's old Rollei 35, a super compact manual film camera with no working meter, and so compact there isn't even a range finder, just a foot scale on the top of the lens.
I am really excited that these turned out as well as they did, with the camera having spent the last few years on a shelf and the film expiring in 2007. I plan on doing some more with this camera later this summer. The compact, almost toy-like, size of the camera was a lot of fun. After a several years, I think I may be getting back into shooting some film again. I might even grab my film processing gear from Pennsylvania if I'm back later this summer.
