Hi guys! I'm new to film photography. And I have the Recesky TLR toy camera. What film is best to use with it? Maybe one day I can step up and buy a film SLR.

Hmmm that's a tough question tongue.gif

Personally use general purpose film Fuji Superia, Kodak Ultramax or Agfa Vista all at ISO400.

Versatile and inexpensive, also these films are fairly forgiving to use.

I'd buy a brick and nego. for discounts.

What do you want to shoot 35mm, Medium Format, or Large format?
SLR, Rangefinder or Point and Shoot?
Fully manual functions or automatic (auto-focus)?


Film camera's can be had fairly cheaply.

Just avoid rare/limited edition camera & lenses people are paying for collectors value sweat.gif

=========================

Started out with a Pentax Spotmatic SP.
Now using a Cosina Voigtlander Bessaflex.
Lenses are M42 mount Super Takumars.

M42 lenses are cheap. Optically excellent and mechanically sound, they're made to last.

Fully manual camera like the Spotmatics are reliable no electronics that can breakdown. Found places like Shashinki can still CLA and service Spotmatics.

Camera only need batteries for metering which last 2-3 years thumbsup.gif

Anyone here has experience in buying film through online from HK/China?
*
This site comes highly recommended https://camerafilmphoto.com/ althogu I've personally not purchased film from overseas.

Reason is X-Ray's

Parcels from overseas would go through powerful X-Ray, so chances is there for film to get damaged.
Know for a fact UPS, Fedex, DHL etc will X-Ray parcels, I'm working for express company.

From Kodak website
http://motion.kodak.com/fr/fr/motion/suppo...ity/default.htm

AIR FREIGHT SERVICES
We understand that express air package shipping services such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc. that use their own aircraft, do not employ x-ray scanning of customers' packages on domestic routes. However, this should be verified with the carrier when sending film. The same carriers may employ passenger airlines for international routes. Goods shipped as freight on passenger airlines are subject to high-intensity x-ray scanning. It is recommended that film shipped as unaccompanied freight is labeled "DO NOT X-RAY. IF X-RAY IS MANDATORY, DO NOT SHIP / DO NOT X-RAY / CONTACT SENDER URGENTLY: (sender's contact information)".

What type of film are you trying to get maybe can search for it locally?

Hope that helps!

Thank you so much for the explanation! I'm actually looking for an automatic camera now.. already using a Pentax Me Super with a 50mm 1.7 and a 28mm, quite nice for still shots but I consistently miss shots that need quick autofocus since my manual focusing skills really not that fast lol that was why i thought the olympus mju ii was a really good candidate but so hard to find sad.gif

For film, I've used kodak portra and fuji superia xtra. the fuji has a greenish tint which is not so nice with skin but the portra sangat cun for portrait (which is what i take most of the time)

what kind of film you can recommend for portrait (if you dont mind sharing) smile.gif
*
Coincidentally asked recommendation on portrait film and my regular lab suggested Fuji Pro 400H.

Purchased 5 rolls @ RM27 for upcoming trip to Bangkok and Cambodia.

» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «

Personal style is towards documenting holidays and candid family photos so I usually use consumer grade films. This will be the first time I'm using Fuji 400H.

Found this nice comparison between the Pro400H and Portra http://www.twinlenslife.com/2010/12/its-ou...-light-new.html

Noticed an Oly MJU II for sale with 35MM lens http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b206542158

Those Pentax lenses are solid metal all the way. I think I went down a different path i.e. Nikon. The pretty all metal Nikkors will not fit my FM2 bruce.gif . If I had bought the F2 instead, oh well ..  Somehow, I never had any experience with Pentaxes or a Minoltas or M42s. I keep looking at the swirly bokehs of Helios ...   rclxub.gif  ... must stop ...

Dont know much about this particular camera... just make sure everything is working (meter, shutter speed, etc) and the lens is fungus free.

Read that it takes LR44 batteries so that's a good thing. Sometimes cameras use hard to find or obsolete batteries.

ill actually be making the purchase online i think. any questions i should direct to the seller before i confirm? sorry for the dumb questions but its my first camera and i just wanna make sure its done right. also thanks for responding !

First if the seller claims they're not a camera person or don't know how to use camera avoid buying from them.

Get seller to check:-
Shutter speed and shutter settings, Try all the shutter settings on the camera starting from 1 sec up till 1/1000sec or more.
Damaged shutter can be expensive to replace.
Check the sprocket and winding mechanism. Make sure the film advance works and there's no grinding.
Check that viewfinder is clean and clear.
Check the battery bay make sure it's not corroded or jammed.
Make sure the camera can power on and light meter/electronics are working.
Light seal is intact and undamaged.
Check for signs of damage, dents and corrosion on the camera body.
Make sure the mirror is not stuck or jammed.
.... maybe other members can add anything I've missed.

Once encountered a seller willing to shoot test roll through the camera and develop the negatives for me. (Japanese guy) thumbsup.gif

If the seller cant meet in person nego for lower price.

To be honest buying a used camera sight unseen (no COD) is risky.

Experience disappointment many times and on few occasions spend extra money on repairs.

It depends on what you want and shooting preference. Good things is the F-801 uses easy to find AA batteries so you'll have no problems there.

Personally I've never used this camera so cant really comment on it's functions, AF speed, reliability etc.

I prefer manual focus mechanical cameras biggrin.gif


edit:

Found this under Nikon MY website http://www.nikon.com.my/en_MY/products/categories/fslr?

Looks like Nikon still have film SLR's the FM10 and F6 hmm.gif

Recently repaired my trigger winder and taken some pictures of the teardown.
Hope someone finds the pictures useful because there's not much information available online on taking one apart.

Peel back the stuck on covering and keep aside.
The tape backing is very tacky and can be reused.

Highlighing gear and bearing assembly.

Closer look of gear and bearing assembly.

The assembly comes apart by sliding the sleeves off the bearing.
Bearing is a one way direction bearing part no. NTN NHF04

Reason the trigger winder stops advancing film is because the sleeve (made from aluminium) has worn off.
Slipping whenever the trigger is pulled.
Highlighting in red where sleeve makes contact with the bearing.

My fix to cut a piece of plastic to use as a shim.
Place the plastic against the bearing housing and slide the sleeve back over it tightly.
Trim the access plastic and reassemble the trigger winder back together.

It's low tech and simple. No more slipping and film advance works.
