I still have the one my grandfather gave me. I can't bear to toss it out. Along with a C3, a few brownies and a Voigtlander bellows camera my great aunt carried around europe in WWII. I sold the kit and caboodle of SLR, lenses, flashes and whatnot at a yard sale for a few bucks and was grateful to get that much. I see nice SLR's at thrift stores from time to time and it seems such a shame to see such precision machinery relegated to junk. Once in a while I'll see an enlarger or other darkroom equipment and remember the days, but man what a process to go through to end up with what might be just a few prints. When I digitized my negatives and slides I bought a Nikon film scanner and fed them through assembly line style. Discovered a lot of shots that I wouldn't have bothered spending an hour or more doing on paper, but a few seconds with an image utility, save to network storage and there they are in full glory on my large screen TV. I have a nice Canon digital camera but I'd say 99% of the shots I take are with my phone. I'm no Ansel Adams, and anymore I don't want to schelp around a bunch of camera equipment so the phone is the tool of choice.an Argus C4 my Dad gave me in the late '60s,
I too have a couple of 35mm SLRs with a collection of lenses. I also have an enlarger and the rest of the darkroom equipment. The whole mess is just sitting around taking up space, but I hate to throw it all out.......... Having a camera that has nearly infinite shooting options and holds thousands of shots is tough to beat. Having a darkroom in a laptop or tablet is equally hard to beat. No nolstalgia for me, I don't miss the putzing around, cost and aggravation of film for one second.
