 ===== Using a Film Camera ===== ===== Using a Film Camera =====
 For the most part, you use a film camera in the same way that you use a digital camera - point the lens in the appropriate direction and press the button. The main exception being that with film, there is no instant feedback - you have to either develop the film yourself or take it to a lab to be developed and either scanned or printed. Similarly, there's less flexibility for taking "bad" pictures, because you can't delete a frame from film once it's been exposed. Some people believe this helps us become "better photographers" because it forces individuals to be more mindful of what they're shooting. That said, I've seen a lot of bad pictures taken on film. For the most part, you use a film camera in the same way that you use a digital camera - point the lens in the appropriate direction and press the button.
