It’s good to see that there is a Web Site out there that has many other people, and photographers using, and working with black and white film, in particular with a film camera here on Flickr. I have 2 SLR Canon cameras, an AE-1, 50mm f1.8 lens (circa 1980), and a Canon FTb QL, bought on eBay, that now does not work! I use these film cameras mostly for black and white photography. Fortunately the Canon AE-1 works; its advantages are an auto winder, and down to 2 seconds on the shutter speed dial before going to B, that I find valuable. Although I haven’t used the auto winder yet, the 2 second setting on the shutter speed dial is a useful, practical selection. The Canon AE-1 also has a more accurate, sophisticated light meter than the FTb QL. I luckily found, and bought a shutter release cable from a photography store last year. I’ve taken several black and white photos lately, and they are more detailed, with greater tonal gradation, and when processed are better photos than from a digital camera; a Canon Rebel XS (2009). I’ve also photographed in low light, now with a Canon 50mm f1.4 S.S.C. lens, bought on eBay; yes it works. I’ve gotten tired of trying to figure out what is wrong with the FTb, and now work with the AE-1, with a Vivitar Wide Angle 35mm f2.8 lens.I am going to, and hope to have a couple of my black and white, and a couple of colour images, here on Flickr; in this section “Canon AE-1 Black and white color”. Watch for my photo work soon. So far my black and white films of choice are ILFORD HP5 Plus 400, Delta 100, and FP4 Plus 125 IS0 (ASA).
