    and more precisely from Paris suburbs .

    first i am very happy to join this community :smile:
    i have read your posts for some time and was impressed by you guys , all this knowledge and wish to share it.
    And i think i will learn a lot with you , and i have so many things to learn !

    so my photographic history really started 4 years ago , when i bought my first reflex , a digital one, a Nikon D70s.
    I was instantly doomed , and became addicted and it is getting worse :D

    then i switched to a Fuji S3 and then gone insane an bought a Leica M6 , which i liked a lot.
    then i trade it to buy an M8 , which i finally sold , the sensor is just not in synch with the body quality.

    then i bought a Nikon F3 HP , which i still use and love and a Fuji S5 and Sigma SD14 which i still use as well on the digital side.

    then it get worse and i found a very good deal for a Hasselblad 500 CM , which i love , aaahhhh this ffllooppp sound !

    recently i added a Nikon Fm2n to backup the F3, i just love the all mechanical side of it and i think i even prefer the Fm2n to the F3, but sshhh don't tell the F3 ...

    now this where you guys are guilty (well it is always useful to find an excuse :wink: ), i found this forum and was drawn to the dark side of the force :D

    i was lucky enough to find a very good deal on ebay 2 days ago and now am a proud (but intimated) owner of a Linhof Technika V , man this is a beauty !

    so now comes the learning part and the time where you will see really stupid questions from me , sorry ....

    but i promise to share my first attempts with you.

    i am mainly a landscape / urban photographer, but i am trying to do a bit of portrait as well now, especially now that i m gonna be a dad next month :smile:

    take care

    Bienvenue Jerome:

    You have obviously been bitten by the film bug enough to become a very valuable member here :D You are clearly a man with a mission and APUG is the place to accomplish it.

    Welcome again.

    Sounds like you're a victim too!

    Don't go near folders or TLRs, or you'll need to move out of Paris in order to get a bigger place for all your cameras :wink:
