    Hi, I'm Andrew, Some of you may recognise me from Dyxum.com where I've been posting for a couple years.
    I shoot 35mm and digital, using Minolta, Pentax and Sony gear.

    I've almost got my darkroom up to speed, but currently mainly shoot on Kodak BW400CN and Fuji colour print film.

    Welcome to the forum, Andrew. 400CN is a great film. Once your darkroom is up go for the TMax's and the Ilford's. You'll adore the range.

    Kia ora! Good luck with the darkroom. I'll be in Auckland April-August of this year and I might hit you up for where to get supplies.

    Hi Chris, the last C172 i flew was a 172RG... now that's a sweet machine... although a 180hp '72M sounds like fun too.
