I want to try film in Alamy Quality Control and technical talk Posted December 10, 2013 · Edited December 10, 2013 by Phil Robinson It might be cheaper to hire a hypnotist to trick you into thinking your digital camera is actually using film. I for one would never go back. I know what you mean about being slower and more selective about pressing the shutter, but I can think of an awful lot of pictures I didn't get because I was too slow / cost-conscious. If you go for it, I would certainly recommend the medium format / tripod route. There are some ridiculously cheap Bronicas and Mamiya 645s around these days (as I discovered when I sold mine). Edit: (Posted this seconds after you added the above. There are good value Nikons around too).
