    I've known about this place for a while and been active in other photographic communities (reddit, etc.), but the analog knowledge base here dwarfs everything else. A few days ago I reached the point of photographic-no-return when I got a large format press camera and reading through threads here and on the large format forum was invaluable. Figured I would get involved here since I want to give some alternative developers and processes a try.

    Some good photographic minds, Tom1956? This site is a veritable brain trust! Just reading through some of the threads has been, on more than a few occasions, both an enlightening and humbling experience. What continues to astonish is the generosity of fellow APUGers. Oh by the way, Amfooty, welcome to APUG!

    Press cameras can be fun I have 3 or 4, I tend to use them hand-held. It's a steep learning cuve so good luck and welcome to APUG.

    I think the best thing about APUG is the sense that we're all in this together. It's not a preachy site. Welcome to the crowd.

    Wow. Thank you guys. I honestly was not expecting a response like this. In other forums that I was (briefly) a part of, these intro posts were always glossed over (head-fi, I'm looking at you).

    Welcome. And this site is a veritable brain trust here. We've got folks like Photo Engineer, a retired Kodak engineer whose name appears on the legendary Kodachrome patent, prof_pixel, also retired from Kodak, a smattering of current Kodak employees, people who simply enjoy the craft of non-digital photography, dark room experts, and especially guys like Simon Galley from Ilford photo.

    Enjoy your stay!
