Welcome to our guide to the best film camera for beginners. Analogue, or film photography, is a staple to the traditional photographer. The fast-paced life of digital photography with its instant gratification often detracts from the true passion many photographers feel when they first get into photography.

Far from the common misconception that film photography is dead, there are still a few companies who specialise in producing film cameras (though admittedly, there aren't many). But the vast array of unique devices are fun and serious in equal measure. Whether you want to construct your own film camera from scratch, or take a step into high-level, precision engineered film photography of the future, we've rounded up the best film cameras you can buy.
