Episode 10: Recommendations for a Film Beginner

This week on the Camerosity Podcast, we are joined by two listeners, Michael Gossett and Nick Lyle.  Michael is an experienced digital photographer, but is a novice when it comes to film.  Only having shot automatic 35mm SLRs, Michael asks for recommendations on medium format cameras, and tips how to shoot scale focus, rangefinders, and home developing.  As always, we talk about other things too, so take a listen to our 10th episode and enjoy!

We are taking next week off, but if you are interested in participating in our next episode, be sure to keep an eye here for a new link which will be posted around noon Central Time Sunday, November 7th!
