Okay, So there have been a few posts recently that have indicated the interest in a film based forum that covers cameras that aren't addressed in the Classic Cameras forum. The issue is that many of these cameras are covered in places like the Nikon, Canon EOS, Canon FD, Olympus, and Pentax forums. So on one hand, there is little reason for having an "Electronic Film Cameras" "Modern Film Cameras" forum. Duplication doesn't help organization. And with a site as large and active as photo.net, organization is key to relevance for most people. If we make it confusing for new users to know where to post, people will just move on. On the other hand, Photo.net isn't an encyclopedia, we're a community. And a big part of what creates community is people connecting over a shared interest. If we have enough people who are interested in discussing something but feel there is no location for it, then it behooves me to consider addressing that fact. However, and here's the deal, it is unavoidable that there is going to be some amount of confusion created by adding a forum like this. Threads are going to get posted here that really should be located in another forum. And those threads are going to get moved. Many will be straightforward, like a discussion about buying this vs that EOS lens. But others are going to be judgment calls that someone may or may not agree with. So please everyone, let's work together to give this forum a chance. I don't anticipate there being many problems, after all the Classic Cameras forum has some of these same issues and works well 99% of the time. But we also see some amount of "why can't I talk about this here, I want to change the forum topic description!" threads as well, which don't help anyone. If a thread gets moved, just "let it ride" as it were. I think there is a opportunity here for this forum to be pretty special for a lot of film photographers. But I need your assistance to make it work. Any questions, please ask. But please keep them to the topic at hand. Discussions about overall photo.net policy/organization/etc are better done via email and that is where I will re-direct them. Thanks. Here is the description of the Modern Film Cameras forum: The name of this forum is "Modern Film Cameras" with the goal that it encompass all electronic AE and/or AF cameras. If it uses film and requires batteries to run, it probably has a home in this forum (and this includes point and shoot cameras). It is important to note that there are existing photo.net forums that cover many of these cameras. For example, if you have a Canon EOS Elan II, you are very likely to find the answer to your question in the Canon EOS forum. In fact, due to it's large size and activity, you are probably significantly more likely to find your answer there. But you do not HAVE to ask your Elan question in the EOS forum. You can ask here. However, please do NOT post your question in both forums. Make a choice and stick with it please. Keep in mind, there are going to be exceptions and judgment calls on some of the topics in this forum. A question about using a particular lens on a Nikon film body might go well here. But a question about the difference between two current vintage Nikon lenses will be better served in and may be moved to the regular Nikon forum as it doesn't have anything to do with use on a "Modern Film Camera" specifically. Part of using this forum is accepting that you understand that. Organization is part of what allows photo.net to be as helpful of a resource as it is.
