Anybody that has seen my photostream is probably aware that I have a large amount of cameras and that I try to post an image of each one of them to Ipernity. It's not that I'm trying to brag or anything like that, but what you may not have noticed is that I try to also post at least one image taken with that camera as well. Sure, I'm proud of my eclectic camera collection, but I want it known that not only do I love collecting cameras, I also love using my cameras. For me, cameras were made to be used, so that's what I'm trying to do. Go through my collection and try to use each and every one of them at least once. My collection isn't all that great, but I do try to make every image I take to turn out as best as I can with each camera. They all deserve to have images made with them and I'm going to keep at my goal of trying to do just that.

Some cameras I used to have were either broken or malfunctioned when I got them and I never got to shoot with them. But the rest of them that work will, sooner or later, eventually be used. Some of them use film sizes that are no longer made, so I have to improvise. Such as using 35mm film in a hundred-year-old box camera. Here's one such experiment doing just that:

I really love trying get an image from these old cameras, so I hope those that view my photostream can appreciate what I'm trying to do. Have fun and keep shooting!

Does anybody else have these problems? And if so, what solution did you come up with to try and get around the fact that the film for a lot of these old cameras is no longer made? What did you do to be able to shoot with them again? Please let me and everybody in this situation know and leave a comment about it.
