rangefinderforumdotcom. A bunch of wankers that get together for "Beer & Gear" meetings, ie: an equipment circle jerk.Got it.

You mean I won't be able to show you guys that my 4x5 is bigger than all of yours?


Wow, didn't expect to have this many people interested in it. I guess I better start planning this thing.

And, no, I wouldn't want it to be a gearhead-type meeting. I was thinking more along the lines of learning more about photography. Particularly, learning more about 4x5, my main interest. Thanks all. Good to see that there is an interest for a group in San Francisco.

I'd be happy to simply meet for a coffee or some beers....no talk of gear or technique...maybe some discussion of places, trails and the like.

There is, in fact, a meetup group in the bay area. they're focused on Large Format outings. I can never remember the url though.

Come on out and join us one of these days. We do spend time talking about gear, in addition to shooting. We try to meet once a month, but that doesn't always happen.

I'm in San Mateo, mid SF peninsula.
I have been trying to restart myself in film for a while. I rebuilt my camera kits; 35mm, MF (6x6) and LF (4x5). I just need to get my butt out of the house and shoot. I'm also trying to build a darkroom, so I can print again. I got a 4x5 enlarger off CraigsList, I just need the darkroom so I can set it up.

A group shoot/get together would be nice to help move me along.

Can a complete LF novice join the LF group?
I need all the help I can get.

I am in San Francisco. I have moved from digital to film in 2008/2009. I shoot primarily 6x7, but occasionally 4x5. Recently, I attended a lighting workshop at the Candy Factory in Fremont - I was the only film shooter there. It was a great event and I learned a lot about lighting. Below is one of the shots I got on my trusty Pentax 645 with 67 165 lens via Pentax adapter. Incidentally, I developed it at home too, so I kept the entire process in my hands.

I miss living in The City (and bay in general). Even though I'm born and raised out here in the Valley I do love SF.

If there are any of you who make it through Stockton or are close by, I would love to meet up for a walk and shoot or bike and shoot. I live right on the historic Miracle Mile, just one block from Gluskin's Camera. I shoot 35mm RF and SLR, but am looking to get into LF and developing at home.

Anyways, I just want someone to shoot with. My wife doesn't share the same passion for photography that I do.

There was a time when people met and shared ideas about photography here. We called it a camera club. There is still one here but it is all digital now. Now might be a good time to bring them back as there seems to be a need, and not just in the Bay Area.

Hello. Any film shooters in the Bay Area interested in a meet up in real life?
