I'm the odd man out, as I don't own a digital camera (although my defunct mobile phone has a camera, I think) and only use film. I started my photographic journey back in the 1950s with a plastic camera that took 828 film (35mm size, but with backing paper and no perforations). I moved up to a couple of box cameras, then took the 35mm route, ending with an OM4 bought in 1984. It's still my preferred 35mm camera, but doesn't get a lot of use (read once every couple of years for one film). My main camera is a 5x4 view camera, but I do use a Mamiya RZ67 when I want to travel light. These days I scan and print digitally (Epson V700 scanner; Epson 3800 printer).
My preferred subjects are landscape and architecture; and I use black and white film normally, although I have used colour negative film in the Mamiya as a means of using Photoshop in place of glass filters.
Basically, a dinosaur; although I do have reasons for my choices, rather than prejudices.
I call dinosaurs real photographers!
