Adorama Recommends 8 New Film Cameras for Analog Aficionados

An Article Recently Published in Adorama Learning Center (ALC) Recommends Eight New Film Cameras for Analog Aficionados

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2016) - Adorama, one of the world's largest photography, video and audio, imaging and electronics retailers, recently published a blog post recommending eight new film cameras for analog aficionados in Adorama Learning Center (ALC).

"Although their ranks have thinned considerably over the past decade as digital cameras dominate the market, new film cameras ranging from simple to ultra-sophisticated are still out there, to the delight of film devotees and those that just want to try their hand at silver halide for the art or the fun of it," notes Adorama contributor Frank Walker.

Despite the dominance of digital cameras in contemporary photography, some photographers and enthusiasts prefer to work with film cameras. They favor analog photography for various reasons, including the more complex tones and textures found in film-based black-and-white photography, and the distinct processes associated with shooting and developing film.

Analog aficionados who want to invest in reliable used film cameras can browse Adorama's offerings. On the other hand, those who would rather invest in new film cameras can check out Frank's recommendations.

One of Frank's top choices is the Nikon FM-10 35mm SLR Camera Body Kit, which is a great first 35mm camera for enthusiasts who want to begin with the basics of film photography. Aside from being light and compact, the Nikon FM-10 accepts AF Nikkor and AI-S Nikkor lenses for manual focusing operation.

Another noteworthy film camera is the Leica M-A (Typ 127) Rangefinder Camera (35mm Film Format), the closest thing to a vintage Leica that can be bought brand new. While it has no monitor, exposure meter, or battery, it does boast superior mechanical engineering that makes Leica's 100 years of craftsmanship instantly tangible.
