We’ve always been into digital photography, but in recent years we’ve fallen head over heels in love with manual focus 35mm film SLRs….

We’ve spent god knows how many hours reading about their history, playing around with them, learning about how they work, stripping them down to parts for fun, drooling over images of our favourite ones online, and pretty much everything else you can imagine a couple of photography geeks doing with their spare time…..

We found a lot of great blogs out there, and a thriving community of 35mm fans….

But we found a complete lack of sites selling 35mm SLRs in a way that made it easy for a newcomer to the wonderful world of film to learn about film photography, understand what camera was right for them, and then buy that camera in the same place.

And that’s how Filtr was born.
