All I know for sure you have no photo without a camera. You can have photo with a camera and a monkey.

You can have a photograph without a camera. The only requirement to create a photograph is light sensitive material.

As far as the discussion, "does gear matter?"; it does matter, however, it is relative to the desires of the photographer.

This is hopefully not the case. The vinegar smell likely is remnant chemicals in the film because of improper washing. However, a strong vinegar smell can be a sign of decay in the cellulose acetate film base.

Kris - if you have a darkroom at home - what's stopping you? … I'll bet it's crying out for a little attention!

Should have mentioned that I moved for grad school. I don't have my home darkroom near me and didn't bring any of the equipment with me.

The main thing that is stopping me at this point is time. The good thing though is that it has pushed me to experiment more.

Bipod, the Daguerreotype may only be less than 200 years old, but photography dates back much further.

The Camera Obscura - was developed in in 1267 by Roger Bacon. In 1553 - a 15-year-old Italian came up with a convex lens to be used with it. Daguerre, himself - started fiddling with early photographic processes in the 1820s. So, since it is virtually 2020 now … that'd make photography - AT LEAST 200 years old, now. Whilst I admire your idea the Daguerreotype is still in its infancy - having lasted only 20 years, the notion anyone will be returning to it, anytime soon - is a little bit brash. But, you never know!

The camera obscura dates back even further than that. Ibn al-Haytham is often mentioned in relation to the camera obsscura because of his Book of Optics.

It is likely that the concept dates back further than this as well.

Finally took a break from the darkroom for a few months. I had been constantly working in a darkroom for nearly the last ten years. Between working in my home darkroom and working 20 hours a week in the darkroom at my museum job it started to wear on me.

I've developed a bit of film over the past few months but I haven't done any major darkroom work. I'm starting to really miss it. Thankfully, I have easy access to the university darkroom but not enough time. Hopefully I will find time soon.

Upgrade your thinking not your camera. Don't make just better images but more interesting images. This is something that must come from us and our experiences. No camera can do this for us

Good advertising. The job of advertising is to create demand even when there may not be any.

I myself will not be "upgrading." I have a Canon 5D mkIII that I bought around four years ago and I intend to use it until it is not worth repairing. The latest and greatest equipment will not make my images more interesting or better. That is work that I have to do.

Can you tell me more?? Remember, I'm looking for a DIGITAL body.

Sorry. I only noticed that after I posted.

The Canon Rangefinders started out as Leica clones and Canon over time made modifications that made a wonderful series of cameras. They stopped producing them in the 1960s.

I was hoping that their new mirrorless camera would take some stylistic cues from their rangefinders similar to Fuji's mirrorless offerings. Sadly they didn't. It is likely as others have pointed out that an adapter for Canon mirrorless for L39 lenses made be in the future.

What would be far more interesting and useful would be posting the reason behind the photograph. Why was it made? What was going through your mind when you made the image? What is the importance of the image? What is the concept that images portrays visually?

No, the sensors in mirrorless cameras are not exposed to the sun at all times! You don't have to worry your film getting exposed without a lens cap, when shooting with a mirrorless film camera either!

Though if you camera has a cloth shutter, the sun can burn pinholes or worse in the shutter. I had it happen to a Canon rangefinder recently. Current mirrorless cameras do not use cloth shutters so there is far less chance of such a problem.

The very word "photograph" means "writing with light" ("photo" is based on the Greek for "light" and "graph" on the Greek word for "write"). Thus any means of light-writing is the same whether it is with film (analog) or electronics (digital).

Yes. Any image made with using light sensitive materials is a photograph. Also, a camera is not necessary for the creation of photographs.

Simple question. Did you use a light sensitive medium to create your image? If the answer is yes, then you are a photographer.

Depends on the emulsion and the process. Wetplate colloidion is usually around ISO 1. Silver gelatin emulsion speeds vary greatly. With the commercial emulsion I use for my plates the ISO is about ISO 1. Emulsions can initially gain speed and contrast with moderate age. ISO 2-3 is generally standard paper speed. I know of some of that have created home made emulsions in the ISO 25-50 range.
