Me, I'm going back to film.

I'll do the day-to-day stuff can be done on an iPad or iPhone.

Where do you go to get film developed these days? Or is a "do it yourself" thing?

Biggest thing I tell people on the iPhone if they don't know, is to hold it like a camera and use the volume up or down buttons to take the picture. Much better feel than hitting the screen button IMO.

On my phone, I just say "cheese,  shoot or capture " and it takes the picture 📸 or movie 🎬  which comes in pretty handy

You can get a wide assortment of 135 film (35mm) at most pro camera shops in the USA.

And there's plenty of film developers available.

All of them thuper thexxxay shots that Platzer used to do were done with a Nikon CoolPix P310.  I got one primarily for my real estate photography.  I like having something solid in my hand as well.  Shoots waay better than I do, very flexible for a point and shoot has lasted for maybe 10 years. My $0.02.

I got a Nikon Coolpix S9700 about 8 years ago that does everything I want and probably a lot more. The camera biz being what it is, I'm sure it was obsoleted by another model about 7 years ago.
