Film photography is not dead. It is hurting, though. It seems every couple months, we lose a few more film stocks. The remaining selection is a small fraction of what we once had. Still, there are plenty of films out there worth loading into a camera. Andthe cameras are pretty cheap now, too. But who knows what the future holds?
_We've put together a collection of films you might want to try while you still can. Some of them are old favorites and others are a little more obscure. All of them, however, offer a unique and often extremely rewarding photographic experience. _
This is by no means an exhaustive list, so feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments. And if you have a freezer full of an old film stock you miss, feel free to leave a comment about that, too. We're sticking to the stocks that are easy to get, but there's all kinds of interesting stuff out there. Let the film bug bite you.
