Expected more. Disappointed.,
This review is from: Film Is Not Dead: A Digital Photographer's Guide to Shooting Film (Voices That Matter) (Hardcover)I don't really write many reviews (this is only my second one), but I thought it might be worthwhile for those considering purchasing this item, as it was certainly not what I expected.
Let me first say that I've been a photo hobbyist for a little over ten years now, and most of my experience during that time was with digital SLRs. The subtitle of the book seemed to indicate that the book was exactly what I was looking for: a guide to shooting film for photographers accustomed to shooting digital. In this, I was disappointed.
The book would've been more accurately subtitled: "How The Author Chooses to Shoot Film."
While I learned a few things, it certainly wasn't worth the cost of the book. It felt like I was just reading the author's setup, and while that's fine, it was not what was suggested by the book's title. To say there are photos peppered throughout the book would be an understatement. There were pages and pages of them, sometimes without a bit... Read more

Gorgeous and Friendly,
This review is from: Film Is Not Dead: A Digital Photographer's Guide to Shooting Film (Voices That Matter) (Hardcover)If, for any reason, you're thinking of getting (back) into film and need a little encouragement, this will do it for you. I read it from cover to cover immediately, and let's just say I won't be putting any more money into my digital outfit. I don't think film looks easy, but Canlas definitely makes it look manageable - not to mention worthwhile. A beautiful book.

Good tool to have on hand,
This review is from: Film Is Not Dead: A Digital Photographer's Guide to Shooting Film (Voices That Matter) (Hardcover)I'm not someone who has been shooting professionally for years, or someone who's had formal training; all I know about a camera is based off of books I took from the library and a lot of trial and error. I'm still very much a novice.
This book is a good way to find out where you'd like to build to. Because I'm still so new at this, I'm shooting mostly with a 35mm camera (the "red-headed step child" as called in the book) and a Mamiya 645. I had two reservations; the book focuses mostly Contax cameras, something that most people trying to get their footing probably wouldn't spend the money on if they're not even sure they'd like medium format, simply because of the price. I totally understand that the Contax is where most will end up landing but I really was hoping to see a little bit more about other kinds of cameras since it's going to be a while before I can justify that kind of investment. However, this book was written by Mr. Canlas' opinion and experience, so I... Read more
