    Hi folks,

    After a lot of years fiddling with camera and related subjects on the internet, I finally joined APUG. I felt that
    the community was rather friendly and open as I read the post related to clearing yellow takumars (very helpful stuff),
    quite unlike many french forums actually.

    I have just finished archiving my 2012 films, only to find out this had been my biggest year for film yet (about 90 films
    in 120, and around 30 in 135). I really enjoy medium format (Bronicas, H'blad), and my heart goes to spotmatics if a
    smaller format is mandated. I hope to bring some of my experience here, and to continue to gather more useful advice
    going forward. My next challenge is to start rolling my own 135...

    Hello and welcome! Bulk loading 135 is a piece of cake.

    It's interesting you mention fiddling with cameras. I met a fiddle player from Brittany summer before last and showed him my photos of fiddlers. He could identify almost every one of the fiddle players from West Virginia. So while you were fiddling with cameras, I was camera'ing fiddlers.

    Good to have you here.
