I just get the film developed and then scan the negatives and print the pictures.It really is a lot of fun, but ithis part isn't retro. Going from shooting square format with the Rolleiflex to a smaller square with the Instamatic was a fun experience. I haven't counted all m cameras, so I don't know how many I have.I checked out the Apple IOS app -- that looks great - except a reveiwer mentions a compatibility issue with i Phone 6 -- however I don't know if this applies to the latest software update. Fortunately, when I was in LA in September I had Harry Fleenor check out my Rolleiflex speeds and meter for accuracy -- so I'm good for the time being.

I bought it and had the seals replaced, and have been messing with it ever since. I have to think a whole lot more than with the digital stuff.

I even use it with my old Vivitar 272 flash - that's right a 272! I still have to be aware of the settings on digital equipment, but everything was manual on the retro stuff.

Ran one or two rolls of film through it and then it was damaged when the leather neck strap broke and the camera hit the ground hard.

After that it wouldn't focus so I put it aside with plans to send it for repairs.

Life intervened and I moved several times for work and the Rollei languished for too many years in a shipping box.

Finally, last year I unpacked it and sent it to Mark Hama in Atlanta.

Even though I'm having a lot of fun, I still yearn for a Rolleiflex! And while there's always that perfect camera for a given shot -- as long as I have a camera with me and can create something, I'm happy.

From time to time I shoot with a Vivitar Flash, too -- a 285HV.

And if you goofed, you didn't know it till the film was developed! My old eyes don't see as well as they used to, and the film speed and f-stop and shutter speed indicators are pretty small, so it takes longer than you'd think to focus on these things. Auto-focus wasn't even a dream for this old retro stuff!
