Not sure how often this side of the forum gets looked at. But i thought i would try here first.

I bought a F4 yesterday as my first film camera. Shot digital for while and never tried film. $200 with 50mm 1.8 so i thought i would give it a try. Wanted pro-ish body that would work with most of my lenses. For a good price.

My main questing is what film to use. all the searches out there are just confusing me more. The guy i bought it from told me to get B&W film to start and learn with that.

2nd question do places still actually print these or is it all scanned now. I remember when i was younger and when the family got a one time use camera. We would drop it off, come back get pics and negatives. Does this happen any more. I live in SLC not sure what options are here.

Any other basic tips would be appreciated. I want to start shooting this weekend.
