Default Photography Forum

CompuServe many years ago had an excellent Photography Forum, to my knowledge long since defunct. I was wondering where today I might find a similar forum.

My interest is in both old (prior to 1980) film cameras (35mm and larger) and the latest digital cameras. When I speak of cameras, I mean still photo, as in Leica, Roloflex, Nikon, etc., not motion picture.

Kathleen,

The continued existence of the CS Photograph Forum was a surprise, but the forum appears now to be an all digital site. That will answer about half of my questions.

Is film now totally obsolete? Maybe those cameras have all gone the way of the manual typewriter, I don't know.

In any event, I am still interested in knowing about alternate photography forums.

No...I think you'll find at least one section (if not more) for film and people open to questions about film...

As Kathleen says, Mike Wilmer's forum is still going strong on CIS - I was sysop there till recently. But the old HMI interface is long gone, and I have to say that the web view is pretty awful for ordinary users who can only see 3 messages at a time.

The forums at PhotoSIG and Outdoor Eyes both have some keen film enthusiasts, as well as the ubiquitous digital fans. (The first is busier and rougher, the second, quiet but very polite. Take your pick!)

That it is. There I'm now just an ordinary user, my sysop account of 12+ years having been shut off by CIS last month. I have just one forum I visit there and when the 3-message limit gets to me I click the option to print whatever thread I'm viewing and read all messages in one go from that screen.
