    Pool at Mike's Sky Rancho is featured in the shot above, also fun to use this camera with regular colour neg film.

    Basic colour neg film.

    Wide angle shots are from a 28mm or 35mm compact rangefinder, all the other medium-length & action shots are examples of what that dusty old leftover 50mm lens in the closet will do.

    Pro films are going to be vastly more pristine, but sometimes you want a different look. Adding a bit of gritty/roadtrippy feel to the images really seems to fit when riding around in Baja.

    Grab some film from Walmart or wherever and this is what it looks like:

    Stumbled across a cultural exchange program in Baja during a ride.

    Recent review of the 2012 BMW Sertao was shot almost exclusively on various films as well.
    Camera/film info appears in the captions where applicable:

    I just wanted to bump this thread and tell you how awesome I think it is. I worked as a photographer full time for about 6 years. Fell in love with it during my college days when I took a darkroom course. Played with film a lot - when I turned pro I went all digital, and the workflow totally burned me out on the whole thing eventually. I've moved on to other things career wise (although there is still some photography involved), but I've rekindled my love for film and that's what I'm shooting while I cross the country this month.

    NitroRoo,

    I was semi-pro after college (having a BFA in Photography), and switched to digital fully. The last year or two, after completely stopping any professional shooting, I have moved back to a split of film and digital. Going back to film definitely makes me feel better about what I shoot.

    Oddly, I am debating going film or digital on a tour at the end of the month. Was trying to find a fixed lens rangefinder but haven't brought myself to buy one. May just pack an old film SLR or my 6x6 TLR at this rate.
