Film cameras need film. Without fresh film material, nothing works in analog photography and you can't take pictures. The film material is light-sensitive and converts and stores the light that falls through the optics of the camera. So film is a mixture of an image sensor (of a digital camera) and a storage medium.

As with cameras, there are and have been a lot of different films. The main distinguishing features are type, format and development. The main types are black and white film and color film. These can then be further subdivided into color negative film, color slide film, orthochromatic black and white film and more. Each film differs then also still mall in the (color) characteristics and sensitivity.

As you can see, there are many different possible combinations, which is why there are and have been so many different films. There is just not the perfect film, but the film choice is always dependent on the shooting situation, camera and the desired result. We give you an overview of the photo films developed over the decades, describe the special features and show which ones can still be bought today.
