So true. If it's just the "film experience" you're after, there's always Super 8. You can buy a Super 8 camera, film, and processing for less than a day's rental on a 35mm camera. There are loads of cameras on ebay for less than $20.00. I even found a beautiful Yashica with the 12-30mm f 1.2 lens for $14.99 with $9.99 shipping. Super 8 film is still available and processing costs less. 50 foot rolls of Kodak Vision3 can still be had for $30.00 or less. Editing can be done on an inexpensive home movie editing unit. I have found units that will splice both 8mm and 16mm for less than $20.00 on ebay.You’ll have a cheaper time shooting Super 16mm
I have shot 35mm so I have experience.What’s the cheapest way to shoot with 35mm film?
Is there a trick to using this method in the digital era?
Anyone doing this? Have experience?
let me know your thoughts
Work with someone that owns a kit. In other words if you find a DP that owns, you don't have to rent. They will likely charge a kit fee but it all depends on your situation. Perhaps your project attracts them or you can offer something back.What’s the cheapest way to shoot with 35mm film?
