    Hi!
    I'm 21, and a few months ago I decided to abandon digital completely and stick to film shooting. Right now, I can't ever see myself going back. I'm in love with the whole process.
    I've been looking everywhere online for an even semi-descent film shooting community or even a few in-depth threads dedicated to film.
    I can't believe how long I've gone without this place! It's perfect!

    It's not too bad. It's not amateur radio, but it'll do. I've learned a few things here, trashing some of what I THOUGHT I knew. But that's a good thing. Odd as it may seem, but my short time here has contributed a good deal of clear procedural thinking on a Pioneer RT-1050 tape recorder I'm presently bringing into specs. I already finished up my Hasselblad 500C. It's PERFECT. This tape recorder seems to be shaping up the same way.

    Good to see a young photographer discovering the joys of film. You have an interesting journey ahead of you. I too just discovered this group. Seems like there are a lot of good people here with knowledge to pass along. Welcome to the more contemplative side of photography.
