    Hi everyone,

    I have just joined up to this forum as I can see there is a nice section on alternative methods which I am just getting into, I have a range of cameras from 35mm to medium format and plan to get a large format camera soon. Some of my more unusual cameras I own are a Zenit Photosniper and a Gomz Sputnik stereographic camera :smile: I also have older cameras like the Argus C2 and a Bessa but also have some higher end SLRs like a Nikon FM2n.

    I just thought I would say hi :smile:

    Welcome! Hope you use that Photosniper with caution - don't want to get mistaken for someone with a live weapon :D

    I know lol its pretty cool, whats even cooler is the fact that I have an M42 adaptor for my Nikon D3100, and I have a 2x tele convertor, so the 300mm lens, 2x tele convertor plus the crop factor on the camera I have a 900mm equivilent lens lol :D
