    I'm so happy that I found Apug, I don't care much for digital cameras. I thought I was the last person still using film. Still using an old Canon F-1 with a bunch of FD lenses. Also a Rollieflex TLR and a Mamiya RB67 Pro-S.
    I have access to a local college darkroom. But I don't know how long it is going to last, so I've started to collect equipment for a home darkroom.
    Long live film. Jeff Kubach

    Welcome Jeff. There is nothing like having your own darkroom.

    Canons are so inferior to Nikons... Opps sorry.


    Welcome to APUG. I built a full colour darkroom (complete with 26" roller transport RA4 printer, small professional film processor and a Durst L1200) for about the cost of a good inkjet printer. It is the best of times and the worst of times to be a film user and APUG can help tilt the balance to toward the former.

    Having your own Darkroom is great, but working in an environment with other enthusiastic photographers is also great. I hope you enjoy your time here and welcome from the rainy southwest coast of the beautiful country of Canada.

    Hi Jeff.

    I'm a convert from digital :smile: Large format was the primary drive behind this, but I've grown to really appreciate a lot of the processes. I have a lot to learn though.

    Welcome! As you can tell from the member #s up in the top left, you're not nearly alone. And for everyone that's here, I keep meeting film people who haven't heard of APUG or haven't really delved into it. But you found a great place!

    We still have a week or two before the colors will start, if we get any decent colors at all. It's been so hot and dry this year the leaves may go from green to brown. The forecast for Wednesday is for a high of 95. It is supposed to cool off considerably by the end of the week so maybe that will help.
