Film Camera Facts

Film Camera Facts:

1. Film cameras are fun; “ha ha! Woah, when are these from??; I don’t remember this!!; Who is that you’ve got your arm around??!; I Love getting photos back!!”…

2. Film cameras are (generally) cheap as ho’s so it doesn’t matter if you drop it; “hey! Wtf did you do to my camera??; The lens won’t go back inside / only takes completely blank photos / is gonna cost me £150 to repair”… which also makes them much more fun.

3. Film cameras mean you only take 36 photos in a night compared to 216; “shit, I need to buy a new hard drive already??; Christ I need to delete some of these – who needs 19 pictures of Jim trying to light a match with one hand??; Sorry dude, can’t burn you those photos from last night, they won’t fit on a CD”…

But more importantly than any of these things…

Film cameras are the fucking most annoying things in the world if you actually want to take a photo and it breaks. I went through the best part of 3 whole rolls before I got them developed and found out I had it on the wrong setting.

Turns out my photos/memories of a trip to Manchester are actually those of a 78 year old man suffering severe glaucoma, and rather than remind me about how much fun I had serve as a stark warning to take care of my eyesight because I would really hate to be blind.

Fact: Jessops no longer sells film or film cameras and only one in eight staff can help a cackhanded digi girl load her film camera.
