    Hello there,
    recently signed up. My name is Jos Lek, and I live in Oegstgeest, a village near Leiden in The Netherlands. Difficult to pronounce, even for Dutch folks! :smile:
    I started photography when I was about 12 years of age, now 40 years ago!
    The camera's I use at the moment are Rolleiflex-T / Rolleicord III / Nikon F2 / Leica M2+M5.
    I recently became the owner of a Rollei SL66 with several lenses.
    The 6x6 format appeals to me very much, so I hope to start using the SL66 soon, having seen some nice results on this forum.
    My favorite subjects are landscapes and architecture. At the moment I shoot B&W and color, but my intention is to go for B&W, and start developing film myself.
    Up to now I haven't found the time for developing, although I have all the stuff needed sitting in a cupboard.
    Hope to learn from your experience, and get inspiration from your posted pics.

    Regards, Jos.

    6x6 is my medium format of choice, too! Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome here. I use 6x6 also, BW only, home processed in darkroom. A lot of fun.

    And a welcome from this end too (England) You have a better command of English than I do speaking Dutch. Yes I agree some of your words are real tongue twisters.

    Hallo Jos,
    Ook ik kom uit Oegstgeest,het is leuk te lezen dat er nog enkele mensen in je nabije omgeving zijn die foto gek zijn,ik fotograveer bijna alleen nog op rolfilm,met Mamiya,een type camera dat ik al heel lang gebruik,vreselijk langzaam en bewerkelijk,maar zo heerlijk rustig om mee te werken,ik heb zo,n beetje alles wat de RB67 betreft om me heen weten te verzamelen,en net op tijd,zo te zien op de verkoopsite,s.
    Langzaam aan begin ik weer in mijn concentratie te komen,betreffende het fotograveren,na enkele ongelukken en de daarop volgende moeilijke tijd,en het verloren gegane korte termijn-geheugen,maar langzaam aan krabbel ik weer op.
    Nu ben ik bezig om te re-organiseren,dus alles op foto-gebied,wat weg kan,verkoop ik,en dan kan ik weer verder.
    Maar het is leuk je hier te ontmoeten.
    Hoop je eens te spreken.

    Groetjes,Ruud.

    Hello jos58 and Mamiya@RB67,
    To both of you a warm welcome on APUG. If you need a good professional lab to develop films, try colorutrecht.nl. They do all the developing themselves and so far all my films were handled perfectly.

    Groeten van Bert (Apeldoorn)

    Niet dat ik in nederland woon, maar laat ik me dan ook maar melden :smile:

    Zo een Rollei SL66 klinkt wel spannend, veel plezier ermee.

    Thank you, Bert - my 13 year old daughter Mia took the photograph - camera is my trusty FUJI GA645W.

    Oegstgeest, nooit van gehoord... En dan ontmoeten hier twee van die plaats.
    De wereld is kleiner dan ik dacht.
