Have you ever wondered why people went back to using film cameras? The camera’s peculiar smell, texture and the resulting photos are a mysteriously attractive item that when looked at invoked the memories of old and the desire to hop back into that particular moment. This is one of the reasons why people still choose a film camera
Even if a hundred or a thousand years had passed, people would still come back to this archaic photo-recorder. Perhaps, it might become a rare item and is worth more than some digital cameras. But choosing these film cameras also require a thorough understanding of the camera as they require a very high level of care; thus, buying a film camera requires that you have a specialist at your side.
We at Lifesara had put together 8 locations with genuine high-quality film cameras that match all the needs of someone starting to play around with film cameras or someone looking to replace an old one. Let’s look at these places!
After getting a film camera, don’t forget to click some beautiful photos and save those memories. If you don’t know where to go for a good photo, we recommend you read these articles
