I'm a big fan of film photography and film developing and was wondering if there were any likeminded folks here!

Big film fan. Don't do as much of it anymore, unfortunately. Wet printing in the darkroom is magic. Miss that more than anything else re: film.

I love film photography but could never fully dive into it. I am still pretty much a, take hella photos digitally and edit them on the bus ride back home kind of guy.
But I need to expand my formats either way so I bought a Canon Elan IIe since it uses the EF system which I already have some lenses for. I'm still so new though and don't know how to use it on manual mode without instant feedback so I'm just using auto for now. Only issue I am having is using my speedlite for it since it's a Yongnuo without E-TTL ;( so I'm just gonna wing it with trial and error, maybe some of the results will be cool!

I take Polaroids for fun. I wish I could find film for it cheaper, but I have 100 or so plus photos I've taken. I really am interested in analog photo manipulations more so than just standard shots.

Awesome to see so many film photographers here! I just got into last summer, first started with super8 movies but now I have a nice collection of analog cameras. I mostly shoot for fun, to capture physical memories and not worry about looking at the photo immediately!

Started with film (mostly Polaroid/instant), then shifted to digital for most of my teenage years, and came back to shooting almost exclusively on film for the past few years.
Also happen to work at a photo lab/camera shop as my day job which helps with getting stuff processed!
Current favourite gear is my Fuji GW690, but still have a couple Polaroids and 35mm cameras I work with.
