The Best Starter Film Cameras
Best Starter Cameras For Film Photography
Picking the right starter film camera is key if you want to enjoy film photography. Here are some camera recommendations from the #BelieveInFilm twitter community.
@BelieveInFilm Nikkormat. Well-built, no nonsense cameras that are fairly easy to come by at a reasonable price.
Nikkormat cameras were consumer film cameras by Nippon Kogaku K. K. from 1965 until 1978. They use the Nikon F mount which means the can use some of the world's best glass.
@BelieveInFilm Olympus Trip 35 :P
The Olympus Trip 35 is a half frame 35mm camera manufactured by Olympus of Japan.
The Holga is a great starter camera and a fun way to get into Lomography if that is your thing.
@BelieveInFilm I learned a lot with my Yashica Electro 35 GSN. Still going strong.
This is a great starter rangefinder. The various Yashica models are built like tanks and will last forever.
@BelieveInFilm Canon A1, AE-1 cheap and easy
Great starter SLR. It is a dead mount which means lots of great cheap glass available on ebay.
Minolta manual focus film cameras are great values with some excellent lenses available for very little money.
