What's the best experience you've had with any of your modern film cameras? Two stand out for me. First, in 1995 I took a 3-week trip to Indonesia and I took my 1-year old Canon EOS A2. It was important to me to look like a serious photographer at the time (yes, I know that's terribly shallow...I've grown immensely since that time!), so I had my A2 with the vertical grip and a couple of lenses that I thought were pretty impressive then, but wouldn't care to use now. I took hundreds of pictures and got to know my camera quite well. I also read Galen Rowell's book "Vision" while on that trip; if you've never read that book do so. The trip itself was phenomenal and being able to photograph as freely as I did (not being constrained by the p&s camera I'd used prior to the A2) and bring back some wonderful pictures was an unforgettable experience. The second amazing experience, which was just as incredible as the first, was a photo trip my significant other and I took in 2003 to Yosemite for 3 weeks. We took a lot of gear, including my then-new Canon 10D and my Canon 1vHS. My 10D was my first DSLR that I owned (I'd used a Nikon D1 prior to that, but it wasn't mine) so it got a lot of use as it was still a bit of a novelty to me. My 1vHS was supposed to be my film backup for the 10D but I ended up using it almost as much. Yosemite is a soul-stirring place, one I could visit every year. Both cameras performed flawlessly with the 1vHS getting soaked at Bridalveil Falls but never missing a beat. What are your best and most memorable experiences you've had with your modern film cameras?
