    I dusted off my original owner Minolta XG-1 in 2015 and started shooting 35mm film again.
    Retired the XG1 to the shelf and current shooters are a Nikon FE2 & F3/T along with a Yashica Electro 365 GSN rangefinder.

    What 35mm film cameras are you shooting?

    Just finished a roll of Portra 400 in an Olympus 35RC. Currently running a roll of Fuji Superia 400 through my Praktica STL3. Also have a Pentax MX on my shelf. Here are a few from the Olympus: Showcase - Kodak Portra 400

    Ehhhh sorta.

    A friend back in Boston got me to pick up a used Minolta or two (one of them the XG-1), and start shooting film again. I grew up using an X-370 in the 90s as a high school student with a graphic arts darkroom lab. And while in Boston, I shot probably 20-30 rolls of 35mm again. Then I got a permanent loaner Yashica 6x6 from my sister/brother in law, and began shooting some rolls through that too.

    Almost a year ago I moved out here to a small town in Oregon, and there's no lab. So I've been VERY slowly going through my remaining film stock, and stashing them in the fridge for a shipment.

    TheDarkroom in CA does a good job and is usually quick. I got the results of my most recent roll in a week.

    Leica II, Olympus Trip, Olympus OM4ti, but they don't get as much use as they deserve, sadly.

    Used to shoot a Canonet, a GW690 (briefly, not really a 35), and a Nikon F2

    My last film camera was a Minolta SRT 102 which I sold off a couple of months ago along with my plethora of Rokkor lenses. After gathering dust from some years, I decided to adapt my Minolta lenses when I used to shoot a Sony camera due to the lack lens options at the time, but they started to gather dust again when I migrated to Fuji. I sold the lot off to fund the 16mm 1.4 I currently use. I'm sure someone other there is putting them to good use.

    I still use my Canon T90 on occasion. I also have a Mamiya 645 kit I'm just learning to use. I still love the look of film.

    Larry the T90 was one hell of a camera, sadly I PXed mine to get auto-focus in the shape of an EOS 600!

    I still have my Canon A2 and several lenses, I just prefer the T90. I still pull my old Fujica ST705 out and use it on occasion. I have a bunch of old, film cameras.
