    Hello everyone.

    I am a long time user of film (35 years). I worked as a photojournalist for a number of publications and agencies over the years.

    Dabbling with a digital SLR at the moment as it is quick and easy for clients but it still doesn't feel like a real camera, like my Nikkormats or Voigtlander Prominent.

    Damn, I'm sorry I sold my M3!!

    Hi from another who has relatives in Durban and appreciates someone who also drives on the "correct" side of the road as our South African guide said to us on the bus as we left Jo'burg! There's not many of us who do. Well at least the others have the sequence on the robots correct!
