I have used film camera since I was a kid. I remember my sister lent me a point and shoot film camera for my primary school graduation trip. That was my first experience shooting with film camera.

I used to shoot with DSLR cameras and I had Canon EOS 1000D, 500D and 5D Mark II. Currently I am still shooting with 5D Mark II. When I was shooting with DSLR, I realized that I need to improve my photography skills especially understanding how the camera works technically. therefore, I bought my first film camera in 2013 when I was living in Hong Kong. The first camera I bought was the Minolta SRT-101 and it comes with the 50mm F1.7 prime lens. Since then I totally fell in love shooting with analog cameras.

After shooting with film cameras, especially with mechanical SLR cameras, I started to really enjoy and appreciate photography. Unlike digital cameras, we could take multiple shots, view and delete instantly. However the cost of shooting with film cameras are high, it forces to me to think and control the settings before pressing the shutter. Thus it makes every shot more precious and enjoyable.
