how many rolls

I am just curious as to how many rolls of film, everyone shot in the last month. It seems there has been a shift to the equipment being more important than the photos.
My last month totals.
Fuji Reala 100 - 6 rolls, two in MF and 4 in SLR
Fuji Superia 400 - 3 rolls, 2 in RF
Fuji Neopan 400 - 3 rolls, all in RF
Fuji S160 8 - rolls.
of course the S 160 was MF shot in the studio

A couple of rolls of 120 B&W (TMY 400) from the Bronica ETRS. A 36 roll of HP5 in the M and a roll of Velvia 50 from the M, but that might be just outside the month.

Oh! and a shed full of pixels for a portrait shoot on a D70 electric thing with lights and everything. That doesn't count right?

So far this November month I used up 4 rolls of HP5+ (36 exposures), 8 rolls of Konica VX400 (24s), 3 rolls of VX200 (24s), 3 rolls of Reala (36), 1 roll of Kodak's finest (Gold 200 asa), 3 rolls of Centura 100 asa and 5 rolls of Cenuria 200 asa (24 esposures). My fridge needs to be restocked. I'm down to 6 rolls.

All the Konica film used were 24's.

Everything has been developed except for 2 rolls; which I'll have done this week.

4 rolls Neopan 400, 2 rolls NPZ, 3 rolls Velvia and Astia.

Take a look at Galleries and other links to see what people are doing. I doubt there's anybody here who doesn't shoot a couple of rolls every couple of weeks.

What difference does quantity make, anyway? I teethed on sheet film, so I tend to be stingy with film. Somebody else feels a need to burn film like crazy, gets better results than me. Who cares?

3 rolls of Reala, mainly of preserved steam trains visiting my sister, 5 rolls of Velvia during a week on the Narrowboat. 1 of each around the house and about 4 testing a couple of repairs etc.

I honestly don't know for sure. Are you talking about for personal use?

I've run several through a couple of Nikon F3HP's, and Bronica Etrs.

Some through Ansco Speedex special "R"

Some through a Yashicamat

Some, through a Yashica GT.

Some through a couple of Canon P's

Some through Contax IIa and IIIa.

Slide, B&W and print film. Now to develop some of them.

Let me think this through...

On Sept 15 my Xpan counter said 14.

On October 12 the counter said 59. This means there were 450 exposures in 27 days. This would be about 30 rolls of 24 exposure film.

On November 14 the counter said 86. This means there were 270 exposures in 33 days. This would be about 19 rolls of 24 exposure film.

Not too bad.

I partly agree on that, but the number of rolls I shoot ( i'm still shooting the same FP4 since last mont) don't influence the love that I have for photography.
I think my record in films per mont is 2 (vacations), and maibe got so many good photos as the one that shoots 5,6 rolls. (I'm not saying I'm a good photographer, just using me as a example).

Since the beginning of November, I have shot 4 rolls of APX100 and 2 rolls of NPS160. I am hoping to get my Neopan 1600 in the mail from Japan this month, which will result in a lot of playing around in the dark...

I've shot 2 1/2 rolls of Ilford 3200 and a roll of TMax 400. Wednesday I'm gonna shoot at least one roll of either 400 or 100, if she shows up. I also have half a roll of cheap 200 color as a test roll in a Canon SureShot I got for $.66. If the roll turns out, that will be my scooter camera. It fits nicely in the glove box.

edit: I thought it was in the last week. I don't know the exact number for the month, but I think I average 2 to 3 rolls a week. And out of that, 2 or 3 keepers.

8 rolls of Neopan 400, 1 roll Provia 100 and about 200 shots with the 10D at the company rodeo (only about 5 of which I'm happy with - always learning!).

30-50 odd rolls: astia, velvia, kodak elite chrome, expired agfa chrome 50, and expired agfa c41, tri-x, arista, apx400, delta 3200, kodak hie, classic pan and a few others ....probably backlogged about 20 rolls.....add digital to that and i have barely had time to sleep and eat...now if i could just get a higher percentage of keepers out of that i would be set...

For myself, I average about 2 rolls per month. I'm not very prolific during the day to day routine. During the summer when I'm on vacation, it is much more.

Vow, I am a light-weight compared to the rest of you... I only shot 2 1/2 rolls in October. I'd shoot more if I had more film bodies...

Or more is less, or... wait, no... now Im just confused.

I have just been in a picture mood lately, sometimes Im not, but for the most part I am much happier when I am taking a lot of pictures.

I always have a camera with me but I don't shoot every time I've got a camera. Sunday, I had a specific idea in mind so I shot something like 30 frames(finished one roll and started another) in two different parts of the small stream I was at. I've got 6 or 7 rolls waiting to be processed. What I'm willing to show anyone is a tiny percentage of what I shoot. I'm trying to get that number up some...

I traveled to China last month and shot 38 rolls of Fuji Superia 400 in 19 days. Totally surrounded by digital, I was the only person in our tour group with film. But at least they don't have to scan all those negs!

I spent the month of June in Oaxaca Mexico and shot about 35 rolls of 35mm film and 45 rolls of medium format. It was almost all APX 100. I developed it all there with rodinal 1:100.

Great stuff.

Yeah, I've been out shooting... 12 rolls of Fuji 220, mostly NPH 400, some NPZ 800. Plus two rolls of 220 Tri-X that will get dunked in Diafine. Three cameras are currently loaded with film...

About 2 rolls of Acros, one roll of Tri-X and a some 200 exposures with a small digital camera, I think.

In November I will probably just do 1 roll of Tri-X it seems, unless I get really in the mood. November tends to be the slowest month of the year for me. It is just wet and dark, maybe I should try and capture that, hmm...

They are even giving Superia-800 (that is about to expire) away at the local Fuji photo center. I grabbed a bunch, I have not tried that stuff before. Maybe I should try it on the November city darkness...

Oh boy, am I ashamed; I've only managed to get 16 exposures on a roll of NPH this month.. So it's not even developed yet..

And I can't even blame it on the dSLR, it's also seen just over a dozen shots..

The thing is, with daylight saving time gone since the last weekend of October, I go to work in the dark, and I return home when it's just about getting dark..

Let's hope we get a couple of nice sunny weekends..

Since september when my studies at the university started, I haven't been shooting a lot . The last month I've just shot one roll of Tmax100, one roll of kodak bw400cn and one roll of TriX, all with my fed-2

I just sorted out my film backlog this morning...

14 rolls from a couple of visits to London
9 rolls from Amsterdam
9 rolls a festival back in September
7 rolls messing around here in York

That's more like the last two months, but I've already dealt with 32 rolls from Bulgaria in the same period so I think it counts.

I know it's quality not quantity that counts in the end, but you asked...

I am in the process of recruiting an assistant. Hopefully her desire to learn will at last at least long enough to get that lot diafined and contact printed!

Tom

Let's see, October was 2 rolls of Kodak 400 C41 B&W and 2 rolls of Elite Chrome 100. Slow month for me but I had other things going on and wasn't really in the mood to shoot most of the time. This month I've shot 2 rolls of Kodak UC400 so far, I may shoot more or I may just spend time catching up on scanning; it all depends on the weather.

For the last while I've been mainly developing film shot over the summer.

My shooting lately has been a few rolls of Neopan 400 through an SQ-A and an Autocord.

Plus quite a few macro-type pixels...

I shot more than I care to count. Printed about 100. Many of them were from the summer though.

Vincent - very nice B&W work on your site! Love the look of your photos, the tonality. How are you developing? (I'm afraid I don't do my own processing however, but am always interested what people use to develop). Thanks,
-Mark

October shooting:

Digital Equivalent of 40 Rolls (Trip to SW Colorado, Northern New Mexico, Fall Color
Fuji NPS 6 rolls (Wedding)
HP5+ 35mm 8 rolls
JC 100 120 film 3 rolls

Total for the month 57 rolls, about twice what I normally shoot.
