    Hi all.

    I am 51 years old, live in Norway (and Sweden sometimes too). Born in the US.

    I have been photographing since I was 17. Switched to medium format when I was 28. I have never been a professional photographer, but take photography seriously. I was pleased to find APUG not long ago. It reminds me that analog photography has become something of a specialty nowadays. Or that I am getting old....

    I have made my own net photo-gallery. Check out www.rhettrichwell.net. It should run in both IE, Firefox and Chrome. I recently also accessed it on my Android smartphone. Please tell me if you encounter any bugs/glitches. I'll be happy to fix them.

    I have a Hasselblad 501CM camera with an 80mm and a 120mm, two A16 magazines (one of which needs maintenance, though apparently this is no longer possible here in Norway). I mostly do diapositive and hand process my own E6. I am the lucky owner of a Nikon medium-format scanner and use GIMP to make the final images you see in the gallery.

    Regarding analog vs. digital, besides the satisfaction of the analog process itself, I think analog is a great way to view and store photographs independent of any technology.

    Hello and welcome to APUG
    From Hvaler, Norway.

    I have used LP foto in Stockholm for service on my Hasselblad.
    Jesper, it’s only tree hour by car to Gøteborg and I would like to have the address for service there 

    Thank you all for the welcomes.

    Ops, that was my two A12 magazines, not A16. As you see I use the square format (which I am very pleased with).

    Jesper, thank you for the tip about Gøteborg. Could you give me the company name? One of my A12s needs to be dis-assembled and cleaned. I have had it for over 20 years and it has been with me on some pretty rough trips.

    OMU, thank you for the tip about LP Foto. I must check them out next time I am in Stockholm.


    I hope to contribute here. I will make a thread about my experiences with E6 processing when time allows.
