Exclamation What sort of people shoot film?

Hey guys,
For my current project in college which is commercial photography I am going to be shooting a advertising campaign for a brand of film and I am trying to identify a target audience by collecting data on the people who shoot film.

For this I have created a small google forms questionnaire which will help me to analyse the data that people enter and allow me to tailor what I produce to appeal to the target audience most likely to buy the brand of film I am basing my project on. Once I have collected enough data I will share these results with you guys who may be interested

https://goo.gl/forms/KU467NaoLueAqbDz1

If you could please take a minute of your time to fill it out that would be fantastic, any help spreading this questionnaire to more people would be appreciated as I would like as large of a sample size as possible!

Regards,
Jake

That was fun. Recently sold my 5x7 (getting too heavy with all the gear) so I hadto uncheck that one. Can you use dead people?! Lots of famous ones there-

Done. That made me think about what I do. I don't do any darkroom work as it doesn't suit my domestic arrangements. Did it at school though - that was 60 years ago .

Interesting survey, Jake.
I liked not seeing a question about gender. Someone in my generation would likely have included that without really thinking about it very much.

Done, I noticed the two brands of chemistry I used were not listed in the default checkboxes.

Just done. All the best w/your survey! By the way, more often than not, I mix my own film developers with powder chemicals, like DD76, 2 bath developer, and D23.
Thanks,
Giorgio

Done. Good survey, but you needed an option for shooting instant film.

Where else have you submitted the survey? You might want to post it on www.photrio.com, which is a big film forum, for example.

What sort of people shoot film? Only the nicest people.

Reminds me of the "You meet the nicest people on a Honda" ads from the 1960's. I guess I'm dating myself.

Best,

That's one way to look at it.
But what if someone just doesn't like the way digital looks, or just loves the film process including using ancient out dated equipment like Nikon F6s, Leica M7s etc?



p.s done!

You forgot the question, Why do you shoot film?

There will be many different reasons. For me it is because the cameras I like take film.

I considered including that however the actual responses would be too specific and too difficult to analyse!

Born and raised on film.
I just like all aspects of using film.
And I like old mechanical cameras chock full of their innate charm.

{Yeah, I also do Digital, but it's not the same feeling for me as film. Just another form of photography.}

I submitted my responses.

I hope Adox makes Silvermax. That's one I had to write in for film manufacturers.

I just realized that because I'm the kind of person who shoots both film and digital, I'm a fickle person without loyalties. How awful!

I just submitted mine. Good luck with your project, Jake.

I've just always shot film and, like Zuiko85 said, I like the straightforward simplicity of old manual cameras, especially TLRs. I also like the tangibility of film.

I figure that I'll add digital at some point, as it definitely has some positive things going for it, but I just don't feel the need to yet.

Would be nice to see the results once you tally up the survey.

I still shoot film because they keep making it. And I've got a whole mess of cameras that will use it.

I started film because I wanted to be forced to think about what I was doing and learn to be a better photographer. I still shoot digital but don't enjoy it nearly as much.

I started shooting film (again) exactly one week after I bought an excellent Leica Monochrom 246 together with a Summilux 1.4/50. I had waited so long for this camera! I saved every penny! I still consider it perfect - I produces visual wonders by pressing the shutter.

But I obviously am not interested in "the sharper and the more sensor the better". I found an old rugged Leica M3 and fell in love instantly: The old glass, the sound of the shutter, inserting film again, no electricity at all. It was like I became a little boy again. The quality of the photos isn't better or worse - it is different and distinct.

Shooting film does include me in the process of making photos much more than digital filming. I still feel a little sorry for the Monochrom that really still doing best, but photography for me is about emotions. And that means film to me.
