My cheap camera is the Canon EA1 which I often load with the Kodak Portra 160. Though I also work my Zenit TTL and Zorki 3S.
I like the whole process of using these cameras as they bring such unexpected and surprising results. The anticipation before developing the film is such a great feeling!
I found my first film camera on a basement floor that my grandfather owns. Then I learned to use it by watching videos on YouTube. I remember developing the films in the dark room with my father when I was a kid. Wanting to try it over and over again on my own so I could learn.
It is quite simple to learn the basics of photography. Try to capture whatever your eyes sees. Results can be completely unexpected and therefore much more interesting than digital. When you commit a mistake, looking at the negatives would clearly tell you exactly where you made a mistake so you can correct it the next time. I think that it's the only proper way to learn photography without a DSLR doing all the work for you.
Inspiration is in everywhere you look. Portraits of people, animals, objects, buildings, nature. Just bring your film camera wherever you are and don't miss a perfect shot!
