    Hello *.*

    I'm new to APUG and after some wandering by other forums and websites, it seems as this is DEFINITELY the ONE.

    I'm not a newbie at photography (let's say and advanced "aficionado") but I'm new to darkroom.

    I recently purchased a MAMIYA C330 F (TLR) (it's huge!) and shooting B/W over Ilford or Kodak films. I'm having my best photographic experiences with such equipment...

    In my darkroom, I have a Durst Laborator 900 with a CLS450 head (also huge!!!) and boxes for working with 24x36mm, 6x6 and 6x9 negatives. The enlarger is old and lack the manual, but I guess I will learn a lot about it in the forums.

    Please, let me wish you all a Merry Christmas!

    Greetings from Spain,

    Juan Miguel

    Feliz Navidad from Western Canada. I have a Laborator 1000 with the manual, but don't know how close they are. Never Knew a 900 existed! I'm sure some of the people here will be able to help you out with any questions.

    Hi Jeff, I love the Rolleiflex TLR, one of the nicest cameras ever existed (humble opinion). They are expensive but worth it.

    Thanks to Mamiya I got a TLR with interchangeable lenses and extensible belows for macro wich is definitely THE CAMERA for me.

    80mm lens is very sharp and relatively luminous (f2.8). For portrait you have 103 and 135mm lenses.

    In a near future I plan to buy a cheap Mamiya 645E SLR... so my collection will end (So I suppose) :wink:.

    Greetings!

    Hello Juan, from the San Juan Islands!

    I wish they sold one for my d659. I did happen to notice there was one for a "DA900". Not sure it is the same, but they do have a contact form.
