    Hi there, new guy, been reading here for a while, finally joined and want to say hi. Nikon user for 20 years, FG, F100, N60 (and others), also got a couple rangefinders in the last few months. Oh, and a Miranda F, too.

    Anyways, thanx for all the info and willingness to share.


    Cheers!

    Hi from sunny San Rafael!
    I bet it's even hotter in Stockton today.

    Well! I sure wasn't expecting to get such local salutations on here!

    Gleaf, sounds like you were Navy having spent time on the island back then. Still going strong in a commercial capacity now! Closed the golf course about 3 years ago, though.

    Sirius - thanx!

    Ambaker- I believe you spelled it wrong, its m-i-s-e-r-y, lol! Sac is nice nowadays though.

    Rorye- yeah it was a bit hot today, yesterday though was brutal, it was humid and hot! I see you're a LF shooter, currently my immediate interests are in building a LF camera, would love to meet up with you or another LF shooter just to check out the gear.

    Thanx so much for the warm California welcome!

    If we're keeping it "local", hello from Fresno! My sister-in-law works for the City of Stockton (and still gets paid even!)

    Hey Xander, I'm actually building an 8"X10" at the moment, although the project's going a bit slower than I had hoped.
    If you're in the North Bay let me know, I'd be happy to show you what we're up to when it gets a bit further along.

    Hi and welcome!

    I used to live in the Central Valley and remember some great light there. Now live on the coast.

    Thanx for the warm welcome!

    Jon Shiu - yes there is some great light here! The golden hour is terrific, the smog and particulate matter in the air makes for some amazing sunsets, lol! Haze can be an issue mid day, but I don't shoot much then.
