    Hi everyone,

    thought I better say hello – hello!

    I pretty much gave up with all that digital nonsense toward the back end of last year and only use my digi slr for snaps and product pics for work now.

    My main area of interest (actually, my only area of interest) is landscape photography, my main camera is a Chamonix 045N 4x5 but also regularly use medium format too – a Fuji GS645S, Agfa Isola II 6x6 and Pentacon Six. And a Cosina cx-2 just for fun!

    Getting into developing my own b&w these days after a 20 year break, so this forum is great for all the info I need. :smile:

    Welcome from the South Midlands. My son enjoyed 3 years in Sheffield in the late 90s while at Sheffield Hallam. So much on the doorstep there.

    Thanks everyone.

    pentaxuser – it is a great place for easy access to the peak district, 15 minutes and I'm there. I'm a ex Sheffield Hallam chap too but about 10 years earlier, I never left!

    Welcome aboard. Chamonix? Not common in these waters - methinks you have been visiting the LF.Info site :wink:... I'd be interested in seeing it if you ever make it to one of the UK spring/autumn meetings we arrange here.

    Anyway, have fun.

    Bob.

    A warm welcome from me too. Enjoy the forum, and as Bob says check out the meeting threads if you haven't done so already.

    Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone!

    Bob – I am indeed a regular visitor to the LF forum (these forums are great or passing the rime when you're s'posed to be working aren't they?!). The Chamonix is a great camera, even me with my camera buying addiction don't feel the need for any other LF cameras. Well, for now...

    I'll certainly check out the meet dates and see if I can make it along.
