A collections some classic film cameras that have been known for their brilliant aesthetics have been used in Midjourney to create the results you would have seen in the film prints. The image produce with Midjourney are much better than what Stable Diffusion (SD) or SDXL could do as I have tested them as well. The prompt was simply as to not confuse the Midjourney algorithm to add its own extra flavours when used with the v6 version of its model.

Prompt: A photograph taken on an <camera name> camera, analog film

I created a database of 550+ well known cameras and then picked top 40 to give you a taste of what kind of results you can get with these cameras when used in your prompt. I will publish the entire list on our Ko-Fi page and if you become a subscriber you can download them, hurry there are still seats available for the Genesis Subscribers that will get the best rate locked in.
