Your First Film

  1. That would be another thread then.
  2. Ah, developing photos in the fumes of boiling mercury. No wonder so many photographers who used that process ended up being "mad as a hatter".
  3. You got me q.g.. I don't know (if I ever did) what film was in my HIT camera but since my first "serious" camera was a Kodak Duoflex IV circa 1955, I'm guessing that it would have been Kodak Verichrome. The second or third roll was probably Verichrome Pan which I continued to use long after it was discontinued (probably have a few rolls left in the freezer.)
  4. The first film I shot was Plus X in (of course) my first camera, my father's cast-off Kodak 35 rangefinder. Photo from that first roll, 1963 I think...
  5. And K 64. Though I can't remember which shot is with which film anymore. Nepal, 1982. Pentax K1000.

    kmac, Kent T, Fiddlefye and 3 others like this.
  6. My first roll in a serious camera was Kodacolor 200 in 127 film format. 1938 Baby Rolleiflex (Carl Zeiss Jena Tessar). Jammed on me on Roll #2.
