    Just a brief note to say hi! After many years of shooting exclusively digital, I returned to analog photography earlier this year. My recent purchase of a Rolleiflex 3.5 MX-EVS gave me the push I needed to start processing my own film, although wet printing is not an option at this time. Thoroughly enjoying the process, and even scanned, black and white film images have a look that IMO is special and different from digital B&W. Hope to share some images and learn from the fine folks in this community.

    In addition to the Rollei, I am also shooting a Leica M6TTL and an M9P. Occasionally, one of several old clunkers also come out for a spin.

    Cheers,

    Antonio

    Wet printing of your 6x6 BW negatives can be done by contact printing to paper and a weak bulb light at the top of the room. It would not be expensive to import few chemicals and small sized photograph paper.

    Leica and Rollei are great!
