    Hello from SE PA (USA):

    I live a little ways west of Philadelphia, PA. I shoot film with a new-old Mamiya C330f and Nikon N90s and N8008. I had sold most of my film gear, because I honestly do like digital, but I wanted bigger files for some purposes. I also wanted to use my older 'full-frame' 35mm lenses at their intended angle of view without spending a couple thousand USD.

    Hi there and welcome to APUG from a fellow Pennsylvanian! I have found that I like using both for different things but some of the newest films are really amazing and well worth using your film equipment.

    Welcome from north and west of Philly. I zap lots of bits too, but have been zeroing in on medium format black and white for my "arty" stuff. I have to thank the digits for making something like the Bronica SQ-A financially justifiable for a hobby!
