10 Camera Films Preferred by Photographers

“When a new film photographer asks the photography community which films are the best, most voices tend to agree on Porta, Tri-X, and HP5… but are these the most popular? In this article, we are going to look at the top 10 films photographers prefer.

Earlier this year, I launched a Film Dating tool for helping photographers find their favorite 35mm film stock. It’s been a few months since I launched it and its popularity went way beyond my expectations — over 38,000 people have used it so far!

This unexpected popularity also gave me the opportunity to gather enough information about the films people prefer. That doesn’t necessarily mean that these films are the most sold, but it gives us a basic understanding of which looks please people the most.”
