Do you want to buy a film camera? You have a lot of options from many different manufacturers and in a new video from The Slanted Lens, we get to see some of those options.

One of their featured options is the Hasselblad 500CM. The mechanical medium-format film camera costs between $1,000 to $1,500. It's not a fast camera and it has no meter, but it can produce some very nice images, especially when paired with high-end optics.

If your budget is smaller, the Canon AT-1 can be found for around $200 and includes metering. It has basically everything you need to get started shooting film. The AT-1 shoots 35mm film and it uses the very affordable FD lenses. One of its biggest advantages is its cost efficiency.
