    Your link was posted on another forum. So I thought I would drop by and say hi. "HI"

    I shoot the film, the whole film and nothing but the film.:D I have no intrest in digital. Been in to this since my mother gave me my first camera at age 7.

    Had a Canon AE1 for 25 years (more or less) I now shoot with a Canon T2. And to tell the truth, I liked the AE1 better. I put only 3 batteries in it in all those years. I`ve put four sets of batteries in the T2 since the end of last Aug. And I don`t realy use the AF. I shoot on manual or shutter priority, so all the other settings are never used. Other than that the T2 is a good enough camera.

    I`m hoping to pick up on a EOS3 some time.

    I do not do people, the land and warm and fuzzy things are what I like. Starting to get in to macro. I`m close to 1 to 1 with my Kenko 1.5x.

    Nice to see a whole site for film.

    Things are a little tight now, Been out of work. So I may not be around alot. Anyway, thank you for your time and work in putting up this site.

    Welcome from the black pit of chaos and mayhem, otherwise known as Washington DC. Enjoy your time here, and feel free to do as much brain-picking as you want/need. There's an incredible well of talent here, and in no time they'll have you shooting ultra-large format and coating your own papers, the enthusiasm here is that addictive!

    Welcome from another middle Englander. Sorry to hear about your financial circumstances but we do have a site where we exchange knowledge and experience for free. Even exchanging opinions has only occasionally been slightly more expensive until a big wave of good humour cools things down again.

    Welcome from California. Hope the job outlook improves. I just changed jobs. Now I have a 60 mi. commute. (But there is food on the table and film in the camera!)
