    Just found APUG this morning at the recommendation of Cheryl Jacobs. :smile: I am a member of both nikonians.org and ilp.org and have gained (and hopefully given) valuable information in both places.

    I have just moved into the mf world after being 35mm for a long time.(Nikon 6006, N90s, F5) I briefly had a Fuji S2 but felt I was not doing the photography or making the images I wanted to with that.

    So, I sold everything except the 6006 and picked up a Bronica SQ-Ai and am loving photography again and getting the results I want. B/w portraiture is my love and what I hope to focus on in the future.

    I love the idea of a "film based" forum. I am getting really frustrated with my camera club because everything seems to be going digital, from cameras to prints, even b/w. I know digital is coming but I would like to wait thank you.

    Well, off to work. Till next time....... Shalom.

    p.s. - Thanks Cheryl for the suggestion.

    Eric,
    As one Bay Stater to another... welcome.
    Glad to hear that photography is fun again for you. I know you'll love using the SQ-Ai, it has a good reputation with the people I know who use it.
