    What do you use for photography while hunting, traveling, around camp ? Digital or 35mm or other ?
    I am taking my old 35mm Ashi Pentax this year for grins. 4X6 prints. Anybody have a good, reasonable film source and development service for prints ? I am thinking aso 200 for daytime. What do you think about outdated film ? Any thoughts ?

    I have always gotten good results with ASA 800 film.

      Had a Canon AE1 program w Vivitar zoom. Had a 2x also but rarely used ir.

      Run my Sony digital pocket camera now. Older 7meg. Works fine.

      Slider phone died so have a halfway decent camera onmy Motorola.

      Also have a Gopro hero silver.

        Buds have camera issues. Ive told them go higher meg and step back.
        can always crop later. But noooooo.....they take a pic and chop off heads and other. Cant work with em like that. And they think the pics good. WTH.

        I watch for shadows, background, sun.....my pics aint great but they usually OK. Or i take enough that some are usable.

        Had a lot of em on disc, hard print from 35mm years ago. Quite the stack. Bunch on computet too.

        Got POd and cleaning frenzy couple yrs back.

        Threw em all away.

            Had a nice 35mm Pentax for many years. Developing, film, etc, got expensive. So I went digital.
            Photo quality? I think digital works fine for stills.
            I don't have tons of screwed up photos and stacks of nondescript negatives.
            I use my phone almost as much as I use my little Z50 Kodak.

            Go to a kiosk, upload card/phone. Select the desired shots. Print.
            Easy, peasy!

              I have a small Nikon didital camera 16X. It is zoom and it really works great for my hunting. On trips my wife uses her phone for our pictures.

                I carried my Kodak when I went to Kodiak. (note the added "i"!)
                Generally used the Kodak. Kept the phone in my pocket for unexpected opportunities.
                Worked pretty we. Got some good shots with both.

                  I can take some photos with my flip phone and though they aren't great, they're not real bad either. I usually have this Canon PowerShot point-and-shoot camera along in my pocket or daypack. Only 12.1 megapixels but good enough for my needs. Very compact and rugged. I bought the leather bag at a luggage shop in the mall. A coin purse I think. Camera fits in it perfectly. I bought the camera at Salvation Army Store for $35. Included charger, cords, 4 gig card, and manual. I wonder if the thing had ever been used. Second hand stores have lots of great bargains for digital cameras because technogeeks are always upgrading.

                  Nice thing about digital vs 35 mm (still have all my Nikon 35 mm stuff gathering dust in the closet) is you can see what you just snapped. If it's not what you want, discard and try again. With film camera you might not discover till weeks after the hunting trip is over that camera settings were wrong or lens was catching sun glare, etc.

                    My wife and I have been using our IPhones exclusively the past several years but we’re thinking of buying a decent camera setup. Close up stuff is fine and the phones are always handy, but for getting quality pictures at distance they don’t cut it. This came to us trying to get nice shots of the kids playing school base/softball last year. I’m hoping I don’t regret having one in Montana.

                          I use the cellphone for quick pics or if I want to send the photo right away to someone while I'm still in the woods.

                          When I want really good photos, I've used a Cannon SX530 with 50X Optical Zoom. It was in my pack last Friday when I went scouting. I carry a small tripod and will use the self timer for staged shots with me in the frame. Also, the timer function works well for macro pics from the tripod.

                          Here's what the 50x zoom will do for you. The first pic is from the window of one shooting house, looking directly down the hill at another shooting house about 270 yards away. You can barely see it so I've drawn a black circle around it...

                            Are hunters allowed to sit both houses at the same time? If so what happens if a deer gets between them, no shooting?

                              That's on my brother's land. He doesn't allow both stands to be occupied concurrently.
