    Hey,

    I've started a meetup group for manhattan APUG members. We've held one successful meetup so far (at Governor's Island), and are in the midst of planning the second one for June 25th. The group is called "Manhattan Meetup" in the APUG group section. Join us!

    The second meetup at High Line Park was quite a lot of fun. I always love using some film with others so I hope more people will join the group and come out with us. NYC is such a fun place to photograph. Here are two from the meet.

    I was out shooting with equipment that I love. I had my Bessa R3M, 40/1.4 Nokton, a cheapie flea market Promaster orange filter, and my trusty Digisix. That's all I brought. I was using Legacy Pro 400 film which I bulk load and according to the 100ft reel it comes spooled on it is Fujifilm.

    I develop it in HC-110 dilution E and it comes out looking gorgeous.

    I am really looking forward to the next meetup and hopefully meeting even more APUGers.

    The crew is growing larger by the day! We recently visited Coney Island this past Saturday, it was really fun. Ron and Stan brought out their 4x5's, Jason, Raul, Raul's son, and I shot 35mm. Good times!

    I cant wait to see what everyone got, I didnt get a chance to develop anything yet.

    The best way to check on the happenings is through the group, just join it! the messages from it dont appear on the normal forum.

    I agree, join up! It was fun. I shot one roll of b&w and a couple of pathmark 400 color. I am best buds with b&w negative film so I am curious to see if the color is any good lol. I developed the b&w roll tonight and here are some. Everyone was awesome and I look forward to more meetups. There is talk about a July 30th and August 10th meetup. Check it out.

    View cameras in nyc make me smile. Saw a lady in times square the other day shooting velvia quickloads on a technika. One technika vs 1500 digicams and iphones and it was still no contest... she'd win every time.
