What type of film is best for the canon elan 7e, I just purchased this camera and it is my first real 35mm camera, I want nice pictures but don't want to pay out the nose for film, what is the best type of...
The first thing to decide is what sort of pictures do you want to end up with; black and white prints, colour prints, or colour transparencies. Then, in what format do you want to keep them; in negatives in storage, in digital format, or as prints in an album or book.
If b/w and as prints, the best film to start with is Ilford either FP4 medium speed or HP5 higher speed.
If colour print then Fuji or Kodak 100 ASA film.
To get started really cheaply there are loads of these types of films available on ebay listed under Lomography, mostly out of date films, but they will work fine to get you started. Keep in the fridge as soon as you get them, but let them warm up before you load or shoot them.
Supermarkets will develop only colour C41 process. I think a few will still scan to CD for you. If not buy a negative scanner, then you can print your own without a darkroom.
For fine grain go to slower film speed (50 ASA), for higher speed you will get more grain.
Best thing of all is to process b/w yourself.
