    Hello everyone, just wanted to say hello.

    I'm new to film again, I shot a quite a lot of film when I was younger, but I made the move to digital and then fell on hard times and sold it all. Well now I am back to film seeing as I picked up a Pentax Program A off of CL last week. Now I have to get used to it all over again, but it will be a leaning experience.

    My plan is to eventually get a Pentax 6x7 and move to medium format after Christmas. A friend is going to sell me his for $350 with a lens and some expired B&W film.

    Awesome!

    If you're not developing/scanning/printing yourself, make sure you find a good lab. If you're not happy with the results it will ruin the experience.
