    I had stopped shooting at all about three years ago, but an avid photographer friend got me interested in it again. I've picked up a Nikon F100 and 24 - 120 VR lens. I'm currently shooting a few rolls of Fomapan R100, Kodachrome, and Fuji Velvia 50 to see what I like more. I was big into t-max when I shot before (on a Pentax K1000 + 50mm lens), but B&W slide film piqued my interest.

    It is nice to find a forum dedicated completely to film. I shall now begin to lurk around, and learn.

    Something I'd like to know is if there is a good place to get E-6 processed in Fairfield County, and if there is a place to get some film. The only local film stores around here are essentially Ritz Camera stores, which don't really carry anything.

    Thanks to all. :smile:

    Welcome to APUG form just up the Conn River in Springfield, MA. Glad you found APUG and hope to meet you someday at a NE-APUG gathering.

    Welcome to APUG from north central Mass. I can't help with the E-6 processing in you specific area, but if you want to ship film, Dorian Color Lab in Arlington, MA (near Boston) does excellent E-6 processing.

    Welcome to APUG from NYC.

    Even though I live in NYC - I often order film from Hunt's up in the Boston area. They have a wide range of film and for small lots often are cheaper than ordering from B&H which has to charge me in-state sales tax plus the same shipping cost!

    Go figure.

    Welcome from western PA. I used to live in West Haven, but I didn't shoot slides back then, so I can't help with a lab.

    Hope you'll join us this summer at the other end of CT for the party. Look to the regional forum for updates on the June cook-out. Welcome to APUG.

    Hello & welcome from Portland, CT. Can't help you on the E-6 locally. For film, if you're ever passing through Middletown, Midtown Photo still stocks film (& some chemicals). As an alternative, Adorama or B&H deliveries arrive pretty quickly in our neck of the woods.
