Film is not dead!

Despite the surge of digital cameras, a growing population of committed and enthusiastic film photographers still refuse to abandon the traditional cameras. These days, instant gratification is all too rife with digital photography so we find something exceptional in old-school film photography.

Nice and affordable analog cameras are hard to find in a sea of DSLRs but look no more as these online shops are making special efforts to keep the glory days of film photography in retrospect.

Shop Casuale

It’s not easy to look for a shop that offers Fujifilm Quick Snap for an affordable price and that is what Shop Casuale is here for. Other than that, they also sell second-hand affordable cameras.
