    Hello all I dug out my Canon AE-1 Program about 3 months ago after using digital for the last 6 or 7 years, and I've gotta say I'm hooked. I started developing my own 35mm and 120 about 2 months ago, and I've been scanning my negs on an a Epson V600. I'm currently shooting my AE-1P, a canon T-70, a beautiful blue Yashica D, and a Zenza Bronica S2 with a Nikkor 75mm f2.8 lens which is by far my favorite, I just purchased a Canon EOS Elan 7 with a 28-90 lens off ebay last week and should have it in a couple days. I plan to stick around and learn as much as I can.

    Hey there, Kyle. It seems like we have similar taste in cameras. I have a grey Yashica D and a Zenza Bronica ETR. I want an S2 or S2a though because I've always preferred mechanical bodies. I like that I get 15 shots per roll in 6x4.5 instead of 6x6, but sometimes I wish it shot squares, haha.

    Welcome!

    Welcome. Check out the Midwest / Great Lakes region group for gatherings that occur 3 to 4 times a year up near Akron.

    Hello, I'm in North Ridgeville. Bucyrus is more picturesque, so you should have plenty to photograph.

    +1 on the welcome to APUG. You sure have lots of excellent camera options. If you are excited about taking and developing your own negatives, wait until you start making your own prints! Now that's a trip:cool:
