I recently got meself a vintage minolta, which I love but yet to see the results it produces. Im having a bit of trouble figuring out how to work the ISO so if anyone's got advice on that as well as other things I should know working with film camera's, do share.. Thanks!

Hey I use Film camera and i also have a vintage minolta camera!!! Mines x-370 i think (i dont have it with me) Mine does auto exposure and ISO is stated on the film so i just set it to that. ^^ Which vintage minolta are you using?

i've never shot a film camera (well, except a pinhole camera i had but i don't think that counts), but i would LOVE to. I shoot digital, and have been learning photography on a nikon d70 and now a nikon d90, but still, i would really really love to shoot a roll of film once in a while. A friend of mine said she has a canon film slr, but i gotta insist on her searching for it and borrowing it to me... :) about the ISO, i think it's pretty much as with digital. If you wanna shoot in low-light conditions, go for a slower shutter speed with a low iso or for a fast shutter speed with a high iso film. But beware! Slow shutter speed means ghosting and blur recorded onto the film (photo). Use a tripod if you can, in these situations. cheers and good luck! oh, and don't forget to scan and upload here some of your work! :)
