that is a great use for an old camera!!!I with you on the film!
I have an old film camera too, and I can't see throwing it, but I can't imagine using it either!
I still have my SLR film camera. I actually still have some film left, but the battery in the camera is dead and it cost about $15.00 for a new one!!! Too bad, because I would love to use my macro lens again. :)
I mentioned "film" to my daughter a little whole back and she gave me this completely blank look...there's a whole generation growing up now that have no idea what it means! :-o
I hope you are enjoying your new camera as much as I am mine ... cause I am in LOVE!
I couldn't imagine going back to a film camera for anything now! I love my digital.
Blessings on Your Day !!!!
