Seriously considering leaving my 5D3 and Sony 5N at home for the christmas break and just shooting film.

Thinking eos30 with the 50L and an olympus XA2 for when i can't be bothered carrying that.

Pros.
No retouching
No taking thousands of photos
No Chimping or reviewing or culling in camera
More time with people

Cons.
More time with people
"did i actually get that shot?"
no/less experimenting when bored
Cost of film and scanning

What do you think - sound like a worthwhile challenge...?
(i did learn on film and still shoot a roll or 2 a year just for fun)

Great idea.

I want to do a trip and take nothing but a Rolleiflex, meter and tripod.

I'm negotiating on the purchase of a 5x7 camera as well, so I can use my Kodak 12inch portrait lens.

Loads some Portra film and forget the cons just work with what it is.

Kevin.
