    I didnt see this thread when I first arrived, better late than never.

    I've been shooting film for some time now. I've been holding off on digital until I see that first 20meg consumer priced camera on the market.:D

    When I say consumer priced I do mean no higher than 700.00. This is a dream, so I guess digital may never make it into my collection.

    So this is my big HELLO from Chicago. Its a great site and I hope it sticks around for many years to come.

    Welcome.
    I was born in that Toddling Town but left when I was still toddling. My Folks moved East and being Two and a Half, I figured I'd better tag along with them.

    No matter what your level of expertise or area of photo specialty, you'll be sure to find plenty of informative and interesting threads here.

    You get better pizza in the bowling alley in Chicago than you can anywhere on the west coast. Love that town. I was born in Cook County Hospital (now demolished). Welcome from the great NW!
