    Should have introduced myself first before posting my first comment I suppose. Been shooting with a Bessa R3A, Nokton 40mm SC and XP2 for the last couple of years here in Tokyo. Trying hard to capture something a little different than the usual gaijin in Tokyo fodder (though I do a lot of that too). You can see my results on my homepage and I welcome any comments, feedback, suggestions etc.

    Before shooting film I spent a couple of years with a Pentax digital SLR. Not sure what made me revert back to film but the lines of the R3A were certainly a component.

    Take care
    Guy

    Welcome Aboard from Niigata!

    There are a few of us from/in Japan on here. Occasionally we have had a few get togethers in Tokyo over the last year. I personally get to Tokyo about two or three times a month for work/personal stuff.

    Personally, I shoot mostly 8x10 and 4x5, though I also dabble in MF. Feel free to drop me a line anytime.

    Best Regards!

    Nice to have you here!

    I think there are about a dozen APUGers living in Japan, but certainly not many of them really come to the site on a daily basis.

    I live near Suzuka and hang out mostly in Nagoya and Kyoto with/without my 35mm camera, and I don't really get to go to Tokyo or towards that direction, but hey, if you have a chace to get out of your area and come this way, let me know. :smile:

    P.S. Keep your stuff dry especially in the upcoming rainy season because you will start to see some "effects" if you don't.

    Thanks for all the welcomes. To be honest I had forgotten about this community until this morning and a comment on T.O.P. blog, remembered I had joined at some stage and I'm back. I'll try and drop in daily and I am at anyones disposal if you need some information from Tokyo/Japan. Just drop me a message and I'll see what I can do. Looking forward to joining in the community and hopefully getting to meet some of the Japan based members in person at some stage.

    Take care
    Guy
